Koei Tecmo have announced the release date for their upcoming musou-esque video game adaptation of The Heroic Legend of Arslan anime, itself based on Hiromu Arakawa’s manga, which is in turn based on the 1986 fantasy novel series by Yoshiki Tanaka. The Arslan: The Warriors of Legend release date will be 12th February 2016 in Europe.
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend will be released physically and digitally on 12th February 2016 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a digital-only release for PlayStation 3 at the same time. The game was playable at October MCM London Comic Con, and we will have a write-up on that soon. This trailer was released to coincide with MCM, and gives a flavour of some of the unique gameplay on offer.
New features in Arslan: The Warriors of Legend include the Mardan Rush, a formation charge attack performed with the rest of your army, allowing you to devastate hundreds of units; chain strikes, which allow on the fly weapon switching to extend combos.
Koei Tecmo have also announced Jaswant and Kubart as playable characters, and Keshan and Peshawar as new stages!
