Spartacus Legends due on PS3, Xbox 360 in early 2013

Thursday, 12th July 2012 00:00 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A brawler based on the popular Starz series Spartacus is on the way, Ubisoft has announced.

Gladiator sim Spartacus Legends comes courtesy of Girl Fight developer Kung Fu Factory, and is due through the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in early 2013, alongside the new season of the TV show.

The combat-heavy adaptation is described as fully customisable in terms of appearance, weapons and fighting style, and tracks the rise of a player creator gladiator from training through to championship. If you’d rather stick to what you know, you can play as Spartacus or Crixus; Liam McIntyre and Manu Bennett contributed to the game somehow, apparently. There will be a ranked online mode, as well as local multiplayer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, series creator Steven S. DeKnight is an avid gamer and has enjoyed the experience of working with Kung Fu Factory on the fighter.

Screens below; expect a trailer out of Comic Con.

    After their recent MMA game (Bellator or something) I don’t have much faith in this. There isn’t even the possibility of cheesy over the top action like that other downloadable fighter based on some TV show (Deadliest Warrior?).

    I love Spartacus , but this is going to suck just like all of the cheap games based on the TV shows and movies )’:

    This has hope if it just sticks to being a ‘gladiator’ syle game and doesn’t try to weave a story mode into the action. A good old fashioned gladiator fighting sim would be most welcome, but it would be so easy for them to cock it up.
