Koei Tecmo ships PS4/PS3 game in Japan with limited edition on October 1

The official website of Koei Tecmo Games' upcoming Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (Arslan Senki x Musou) action game began streaming two new action introduction videos on Wednesday to highlight the fighting styles of Arslan (voiced by Yūsuke Kobayashi) and Falangies (voiced by Maaya Sakamoto).

Other confirmed playable characters so far include Daryun, Narsus, Elam, Gieve, Alfried, and Kishward. Koei Tecmo Games previously streamed action introduction videos for Daryun, Gieve, and Elam.

Koei Tecmo Games will release the game in North America and Europe for the PS3, PS4, and Xbox One. 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.

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).
