Rage of the
Gladiator set to release March 15
serves up solid dose of arena fighting
Rage of the Gladiator, from Ghostfire Games, is on track for release on Monday,
March 15. The title will be available as WiiWare. In the game, players take on
the role of Gracius, who is battling for his life in the arena.
“Many other WiiWare games are really fun and well-developed, but they aren’t
pushing the boundaries of the Wii from a technical perspective (many are 2D
sprite-based games). We felt the system was capable of more and we wanted to
really push ourselves to see what we could squeeze into a 40MB WiiWare
download,” said Ghostfire CEO Ed Roman during an
interview with GameZone.com.
The game will support the Wii MotionPlus technology.
