The game, made exclusively for the Wii, would serve as an homage to Bushido Blade by providing some realistic weapons-based fighting set in the ancient Roman era. Gamers were intrigued with the idea of using a trident, gladius and nets to defeat their enemies and win glory. Somewhere down the line, however, things changed, and it wasn't just the title of the game. Gladiator A.D. became Tournament of Legends, and the Bushido Blade style of gameplay was replaced with something more comparable to Soul Calibur. In the end, the game transformed from something intriguing to something that needs to be defended."
