imageWhat Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord? developer Acquire bought the rights to the Gladiator, better known as the Colosseum series in North America. The first thing they did with Ertain’s ex-property was make a PSP prequel called Kentoushi: Gladiator Begins.


Much like the other Gladiator games, you play as a gladiator fighting for his or her freedom. The game also has an open ended story, but is better known for its racy slave girl.


While a publisher hasn’t been announced, Acquire’s GDC list notes Gladiator Begins will be released in North America. Atlus worked with Acquire on Class of Heroes. More recently, Agetec and UFO Interactive licensed Way of the Samurai 3 from them.

  • If this is released on UMD they should include Patchwork Heroes on the disc too! Argh!

      Unless Sony is the NA publisher that’s highly unlikely to happen.

      • Ah darn. Didn’t think about the stinkin’ publishers… Wish game studios owned their own properties and could distribute them through whatever publishers they wanted to… darn business always gets in the way, eh?

    So, I wonder who will publish this game.

    I didn’t like this at all

    It’s repetitive and overly difficult at times

      Sounds about right. I remember renting the PS2 game a few years back and got tired of it since you did little other than participate in fights.
