It is unclear if the release date is legitimate, or what the game will cost, and a Microsoft representative was not immediately available for comment. No release date for the PSN version has been revealed.

The product page for Karateka reveals the game's art has been created by Batman: The Animated Series designer Jeff Matsuda, with music from Grammy Award-winning composer Christopher Tin (Civilization IV).
