The previous and only other entry in the series published after Acquire’s acquisition of the IP is a PSP title known as Gladiator Begins. The front and back of its box art featured sexy Japanese women in Gladiator bikini-wear.
Gladiator Versus is a bit more serious, however. The Kahagawa-based developer Goshow is developing the game, which features a three-player online multiplayer combat component. Single-player missions, which last five to ten minutes each, will also be available.
Gladiator Versus will release for PlayStation 3 this year in Japan.
