Gaming classic Baldur’s Gate has returned to the App Store after being pulled due to a legal dispute a few months ago. Last December, gaming company Beamdog brought the ’90s classic to the iPad, but just six months later it was forced to be removed by publisher Atari on vague “contractual matter” grounds. But an email yesterday from Beamdog CEO Trent Oster posted on Reddit announced a resolution to those contractual issues:

Dear Friends of Baldur’s Gate,

We’re back!

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition is available for sale once again. All outstanding issues with our publishing partner have been resolved. We’ll announce the details of an upcoming major Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition patch and the Android tablet version in the near future. We’ll also have some exciting news regarding Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition soon after. We want to thank our fans for the outpouring of support we received during this difficult time. Legal issues are never fun. We’re glad we can once again focus on what matters – makin’ videogames!

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition costs US$9.99 on the App Store.
