“Elf needs food badly!” Some old-school gamers may remember these words from the Atari arcade game Gauntlet. Now, Warner Bros. is bringing back the game in an all-new adventure.

The new version of Gauntlet is a “completely modernized action RPG” that is the latest addition to WB Games’ Vault portfolio of digital games. More games based on the Atari/Midway arcade line-up are expected to be announced later on, with Gauntlet taking the forefront for now.

“With Gauntlet, we combined the arcade style of the original game with an entirely new look and feature set that includes emergent, local and online four-player gameplay,” said WB Games digital SVP David Haddad.

In development over at Arrowhead Games, Gauntlet will make its debut this week at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
