History fiends and retrogaming fans alike are in for a treat and can now pre-order this immaculately designed side-scrolling beat ‘em up by Fully Illustrated and Darkwind Media. Stay on the lookout for the Day 1 Patch, which will add a brand-new game mode 🙂

With eight levels overflowing with sharp blades, bloodthirsty hordes and deadly arenas, Wulverblade invites you to slice through the invading 9th Legion in graphic detail on your own – or enlist a friend for the slaughter in two-player co-op.

The Roman Empire is about to take control of the north of Britannia and quash the last remaining tribes – and you must stop them dead in their tracks! Play as either Caradoc, Brennus or Guinevere – members of a family originating in the northern tribe of the Caledonii. This family of warriors has been the guardian of the most northerly tribes of Britannia for generations. The Romans have invaded Britain and conquered all that lies before them … until now.
