If you live in the UK or Europe, you own a PlayStation Portable and you enjoy playing action role-playing games, then we may have some interesting news for you. Zen United and PQube have just announced that the Gladiator Begins game will be available on the PSP in both Europe and the UK sometime in May.
As recently noted over on the mcvuk.com website, the Gladiator Begins game — which was created by Tenchu and Way of the Samurai developer Acquire — combines the bloody violence of Gladiatorial combat with the customization options of a role playing game.
Players will be able to take their characters from a humble slave to a skilled Gladiator, by fighting for gold and skill points that enable them to develop their character’s abilities. As the player’s fame begins to rise, different story paths will be opened for different characters, giving the game added replayability.
The Gladiator Begins game allows its players to choose their own fighting style, and then exploit the innovative fighting system that enables them to target specific armor or body parts in order to disarm their opponents. Free DLC will be available from the PlayStation Network, including new characters and weapons.
