KOEI Tecmo America and KOEI Tecmo Europe began streaming the second gameplay trailer for their upcoming Arslan: The Warriors of Legend (Arslan Senki x Musou) action game on Tuesday. The video previews many of the game's playable characters.

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.
