Arslan: The Warriors of Legend Release Date Announced
Koei Tecmo America has recently announced the release dates for its upcoming game Arslan: The Warriors of Legend. It will release in North America on February 9, 2016. The game will launch on the PlayStation 34, the PlayStation 3, and the Xbox One.
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is a game based on the novel The Heroic Legend of Arslan. This game is based on the rebooted anime and manga version illustrated by Fullmetal Alchemist creator Hiromu Arakawa. The game takes the one versus thousand action gameplay of the Warriors series and also adds in the Mardan Rush, which allows players to wipe out enemies by dealing devastating damage with special "Rush" units, which come in Mounted, Ranged, or Melee types.
In addition to controlling army units, the game will also have new battle moves for individual characters. As players progress through the story, individual characters unlock different weapon types. The game has the Chain Strike, which allows for real-time switching of weapons while executing a power attack, allowing for prolonged combos.
Koei Tecmo America has also announced that the game will come with preorder bonuses. Preorders through GameStop and EB Canada will unlock a special weapon and armor set for Daryun and a new original scenario for Free Mode titled "Conflict at Gujarat Fortress." Preorders from Best Buy or Amazon will unlock the original scenario "Battle for the Title" for Free Mode. Both scenarios also offer the possibility of unlocking very special Limited Skill Cards for an extra advantage in battle.
