Deadliest Warrior: Legends
is the XBLA follow up to the cult hit, Deadliest Warrior: The Game
and follows the same general principles as the original. The biggest change, besides a new Strategy mode, is that this time you control historical figures instead of just historical archetypes. This means that I can finally settle the old debate from my History 3000 course in college and have Alexander the Great put the smackdown on Hannibal. The new combatants, new modes and new interactive environments are all showcased in the trailer:
They just had to show Alexander kicking someone into the pit of death didn't they? Never mind Alexander the Great was a Macedonian and not a Spartan, someone in marketing just had to give in and use that to demonstrate the environments. Deadliest Warrior: Legends
is due this summer.
