Ghostfire Games today announced that their new WiiWare title, “Rage of the Gladiator” will be the first WiiWare title to support the Wii MotionPlus device. Rage of the Gladiator is a first-person perspective fantasy fighting game where you control a gladiator. Wielding a warhammer and shield, you must duel a variety of boss enemies in an arena.
“We listened to you, the Wii community.” said Ed Roman, CEO of Ghostfire Games. “The community encouraged us to explore Wii MotionPlus and we listened to your feedback. The result is pretty awesome – we actually love playing it with Wii MotionPlus even more than traditional controls. We’ve also added a basic motion sensing mode as well, for people to use the Wii Remote + Nunchuk in case they don’t have a Wii MotionPlus device. “
Using the new Wii MotionPlus controls, you can swing your warhammer in a variety of directions as you pound on your opponents. You can also swing the Nunchuk to perform a bash with your shield.
