Acquire came up with a unique way to promote Clan of Champions better known as Gladiator Vs. in Japan. No, it’s not a scantily clad slave girl, that was done for Gladiator Begins. This time the Akihabara based developer created a weekly YouTube variety show with comedians and gravure idol Yuzuki Aikawa demoing different parts of the game.
Take this video as an example, it explains how to control a character after Ijiri Okada hits Koriki Choshu with a toy hammer.
This video demos cooperative play, which is one of the core features in Clan of Champions. It’s a multiplayer online brawler where you can be a warrior, elf or orc. Other videos below show character customization and how you can equip different skills or spells. Clan of Champions will be available in Japan on November 23 for PlayStation 3. NIS America will localize the title and release it as a multiplatform game on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC in spring 2012.
