The Karateka remake being headed up by original creator Jordan Mechner will hit Xbox 360 on November 7, for $10 (800 Microsoft Points). The ToeJam & Earl Collection, which brings together original game and Panic on Funkotron, will release the same day.

The dates were confirmed by Microsoft's Major Nelson. Karateka is slated for release on the PlayStation Network as well, likely close to the XBLA date. The two ToeJam & Earl games are being released separately on PSN for $4.99 each.

      Toejam & Earl was one of my favourite games as a kid. Great fullscreen/splitscreen co-op support, too! Probably one of the first roguelike-likes.

        God yes, it was so much fun with a friend, and weirdly atmospheric.

      Also I did not expect the new Karateka to be coming out so soon. Guess they've been working on it quietly for a while?
