    Atari has recently announced that it is bring back a classic franchise with Haunted House.  Atari has given Haunted House a modern gameplay update mixed with the proven fun factor and suspense of the original blockbuster game.  Over thirty years have passed since your grandfather disappeared without a trace while searching for the magical urn, a mystery that has hangover the heads of you and your family for decades.  Now a mysterious letter from the town of Spirit Bay has dragged you to Graves Mansion, to follow in the footsteps of your grandfather.

    Haunted House pays homage to the classic favorite as players fight for their lives in Graves Mansion as the grandchildren of the original character that disappeared without a trace in the evil mansion over 30 years ago.  Chased by pesky poltergeists, haunted by scary skeletons and exhausted from battles with creepy creatures, players are in a goosebump-educing fight to explore the dark and creepy depths of Graves Mansion in search of the four lost pieces of the magical urn.  The player’s goal is to reassemble the urn and defend their family’s legacy with the aid of mystical tomes, powerful light sources and multiple keys.

    “The glowing eyes and mysterious urn of Haunted House still resonates with gamers who made the original franchise a blockbuster hit,” says Jim Wilson, President of Atari. “Atari looks forward to introducing a new generation of gamers to the fun and suspense of Graves Mansion and bringing families together with the magic that is Haunted House.”

    Haunted House is set to hit store shelves sometime this fall for the XBox360 and Nintendo Wii.
