I recall one of my first multi-player gaming experiences when I was young, Gauntlet in the arcade. Any gamer who spent time in an arcade in their youth will recall the game with four joysticks that let others jump in during the game.

Eidos and Backbone Entertainment announced today that Gauntlet was coming to the Nintendo DS game system offering fast paced, retro gameplay. The screen shots look very much like what I recall from my youth of wasted quarters playing the game. The game is due for release in summer 2008.
"Eidos is proud to revitalize the iconic Gauntlet franchise from Midway by offering a totally revamped iteration of the classic multiplayer action RPG to the Nintendo DS(TM)," said Robert A. Lindsey, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Eidos Inc. "Gauntlet pushes the technology behind the DS by introducing VoIP as well as offering gamers an in-depth competitive multiplayer experience never before explored in the Gauntlet universe."
