Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is a tactical action title based on the epic novel, manga, and anime IP The Heroic Legend of Arslan.

Originally written as a novella in the late 1980’s, The Heroic Legend of Arslan has been adapted to manga and anime numerous times, with the most prominent being the 2013 release of a manga series by famed illustrator, Hiromu Arakawa (the creator of Fullmetal Alchemist). It tells the story of the young crown prince of Pars, Arslan, as he is forced out of his kingdom when his father, the King, is betrayed anddefeated and his domain conquered. Arslan and his few companions must re-assemble an army and fight against overwhelming odds to regain his throne and liberate his kingdom. Through his exploits, he reaches emotional maturity, while the series also tackles underlying issues of slavery, religious fanaticism, betrayal, and humanity.

The game adaptation of this magnificent story seamlessly blends the fast-paced tactical action gameplay indicative of the Warriors franchise with a stunningly engaging narrative. Using cell-shaded graphics and basing all character design on the anime series, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend delivers a gaming experience designed to fully immerse the player into Arslan’s universe.

KOEI TECMO announced a series of exclusive bonus content, available to those who pre-order Arslan: The Warriors of Legend.

Specifically, pre-orders through GameStop & EB Canada will include a special weapon and armor set for Daryun, as well as ‘Conflict at Gujarat Fortress’, a new original scenario for Free Mode.

Those who pre-order from Best Buy or Amazon will receive the new original scenario, ‘Battle for the Title’, for Free Mode. Both scenarios offer players the possibility to unlock some very special Limited Skill Cards, which will give them an extra edge in battle!

In addition to controlling army units, the game also features new battle moves for individual characters, such as the Chain Strike. As the story progresses, playable characters will gain access to different weapon types. Chain Strike allows for a real-time switch between available weapons while executing a power attack, which brings more variety to the action and can be used to prolong combos!
