Helix developer Ghostfire Games has revealed its next WiiWare project: a first-person fighting game called Rage of the Gladiator -- a title that gets us all primed for violence just by typing it. RAAAAAAAGE.

The game takes place in a city called Avalance, in which some kind of political betrayal has forced the prince into arena combat, where he must face a bunch of mythical creatures, like minotaurs, dragons, and demons. The prince is armed with a warhammer and a shield, along with some rather intimidating magical skills that manifest as "finishing moves" -- for example, one finisher lets the prince "darken the skies with a solar eclipse, sending a beam of light to fry your enemy."
