VG Chartz’s Brett Walton recently released a list of games that will be rolled out in North America in the coming months. The list includes Spike and 345 Games’ Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat, due to hit the shelves tomorrow.

The game was first announced on September 2011, and was slated to be released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on December of last year. However, it was postponed to January 10, 2012, and later to April 17. Ancient Combat is a combination of Deadliest Warrior: The Game and Deadliest Warrior: Legends. As opposed to the previous games’ digital downloadable content, the third DW game adaptation will be released with additional features as a retail game.

Spike TV’s Deadliest Warrior

Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat is based on Spike’s “Deadliest Warrior” show. Each episode will pit two of the most-feared warriors of their time against each other, and will enlist experts to provide insights and commentary about them. They will analyze every facet of the fighter’s unique skills and the weapons they are using, while heading towards a head-to-head battle to the death that will produce the Deadliest Warrior.
