Almost two years since its release in Japan, Spelunker HD will finally hit the North American PlayStation Store next week. Japanese studio Tozai Games (R-Type Dimensions) has re-created Irem's NES edition of Spelunker with new music and six-player online multiplayer.

In Spelunker HD, you control a fragile explorer navigating underground passages, pits, and traps across more than 100 levels. As its title implies, the game is all presented with high definition graphics, but you can play a retro 8-bit style version in "Classic Mode", too!

You'll be able to download Spelunker HD on November 23rd for $9.99, which is much cheaper than the $25 that Japanese gamers had to pay.
