Rage of the Gladiator Banner

A week ago we shared the news that WiiWare brawler Rage of the Gladiator is coming to the 3DS eShop. At the time it was anticipated to be available within a few weeks, but Gamelion has now been in touch with us to share that it'll arrive in North America and Europe on 19th September for $6.99 / €6.99; the UK price is likely to be around the £5.99 mark

We rated the WiiWare original highly, and the studio's Sebastian Szczygiel told us the following about new features coming to the new version of Rage of the Gladiator.

Compared to the Wii version the 3DS version has improved graphics (presented in full stereoscopic 3D), additional difficulty mode and an in-game shop where new weapons, shields, armor etc. can be bought which are not available in the original Wii version.

You can check out our WiiWare Rage of the Gladiator review as you wait, while we'll work on a preview ahead of release. If you missed it last time, there's also a trailer for the 3DS eShop title below.
