Directly inspired by '300,' the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures film directed by Zack Snyder, 300: March To GloryTM will be available for the PSP® system in March 2007 along with the film. The film and game, based on Frank Miller's '300' graphic novel, tell the story of King Leonidas, who along with his 300 brave Spartan soldiers, battle to stave-off Xerxes and his tyrannical Persian army in this retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae. 300: March To Glory's distinctive environments and color treatments are influenced by the film’s unique visual style. The film, graphic novel and game are all packed with brutally intense and graphically violent fighting scenes.
- In 300: March To Glory, players will unleash the full fury of the Spartan army using the unique Wrath combat system where a Spartan’s health is determined by timely use of defensive battle skills and mastery of vicious and deadly Wrath Attacks.
- Players will fight alone, as King Leonidas and as the Spartan phalanx, the group formation featured in the film, against the mighty Persian army.
- In the visceral, action-packed 300: March To Glory, players have the ability to battle the enemy with three distinct and upgradeable weapon sets: o Sword & Shield – The most basic weapon set of the Spartan soldier. o Spear & Shield – A more strategic weapon set, requiring pace and rhythm for success in battle. o Dual Swords – An unlockable weapon set which, once learned, is the most deadly.
- 300: March To Glory replicates the movie and graphic novel’s intensity of violence, blood, and mutilation; throughout the course of the game, players can unlock over 20 distinct combination moves with which they can decapitate, dismember, and disembowel their enemies.
