KOEI Tecmo Games began streaming two promotional videos for its upcoming Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (Arslan Senki x Musou) action game. The videos preview gameplay for Zandeh and Hilmes.

The videos also reveal that a download code for Daryun's "Lion Hunter" costume and weapon will be a first print bonus for the game.

The game's confirmed playable characters so far include Arslan, Falangies, Daryun, Narsus, Elam, Gieve, Alfarīd, Kishward, Jaswant, Zandeh, Hilmes, Kubard, Tūs, Isfān, and Zarāvant.

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's Charge Shift mechanic allows players to string multiple combos by changing weapons.

The game will contain more than 200 Skill Cards that can change a character's abilities, and it will also feature side stories that will go deeper into the story.

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).

Sony is also releasing two limited edition "Arslan Senki x Musou Limited Edition" themed PlayStation 4 systems on October 1 in Japan.

Koei Tecmo Games will release the game 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.
