Last week we took a look at the faithful and highly enjoyable iPhone port of the 1984 arcade fighter Karate Champ [App Store]. We've been having fun with the game since it hit the App Store and are happy to report that the developer, Revolutionary Concepts, will soon be bringing a native iPad version of Karate Champ to the App Store.

Karate Champ HD will take specific advantage of the iPad's larger display and, most interestingly, will feature a split-screen, head-to-head two player mode for tabletop gameplay, as illustrated in the above mock-up provided by the developer.

We'll be sure to pass on additional details on the upcoming iPad title as we get them.

    It needs a border to distinguish play areas. Nothing fancy. Even just a black line would be a sufficient aesthetic improvement.

    This is cool. The iPhone version rocks. (Though it would be nice to have the Tournament version of the game too.) Since this is the versus version, seems appropriate for a versus mode like this to be created. Now all we need is wireless versus play on the iPod. :)
