posted on by Egan Loo
Koei Tecmo announced on Thursday that it will release Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (Arslan Senki x Musou) for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox One in North America and Europe "in early 2016." The game will be available in Europe as physical releases for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on PlayStation 3 digitally.
Koei Tecmo Games and Omega Force are developing the Warriors-style game based on Hiromu Arakawa and Yoshiki Tanaka's The Heroic Legend of Arslan manga. Players will be able to reenact scenes from the manga in the game. The game's story will start with the battle of Atropatene. Confirmed playable characters so far include Arslan, Daryun, Narsus, Elam, Gieve, and Falangies.
The game's Mardān Rush feature will allow players to lead a troop of soldiers and deliver heavy damage to the enemy army. Players will be able to control cavalry, archers, or infantry to utilize each group's special abilities. The feature will allow players to overcome obstacles, attack distant opponents, and rescue allies in strategic gameplay.
The game was originally slated to ship in Japan on September 17, but it has been delayed until October 1. No Xbox One release has been announced in Japan.
The game's regular edition will retail in Japan for 7,800 yen (about US$63), and the download edition will retail for 6,762 yen (US$54). Koei Tecmo Games will also release a "Treasure Box" edition of the game that will come with the following: an original soundtrack CD, an "Official Settings Documents Collection," a crystal frame stand, and a cleaner cloth. The Treasure Box edition retails for 12,800 yen (US$103). Pre-orders for the game started on June 11. The download version of the game will retail for 6,762 yen (about US$54).
