Gauntlet Pushed Back to September 23

The remake of the classic dungeon crawler Gauntlet has been delayed. It was set to arrive on September 3, but will now hit the PC on September 23. The developers say they need the extra time to fine-tune some of the details.

Based on the original 1985 version of Gauntlet, the remake offers completely new graphics and audio, but maintains the top-down perspective and fast-paced action of the original. There will once again be four magical characters to choose from: Warrior, Wizard, Valkyrie, or Elf, but instead of having four players crouched around the same arcade cabinet like in the 80s, there will be local and online multiplayer support.
