Arslan: The Warriors Of Legend from Koei Tecmo enters my next “For The First Time” gameplay preview looking to slice through the competition. How will it stack up? You can check out my reactions and decide for yourself in this hour plus of gameplay showcasing the beginning elements of the game.
About Arslan: The Warriors of Legend
Originally written as a novel series 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). Based on this adaptation, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend tells the story of the young crown prince of Pars, Arslan, who is forced out of his kingdom when his father, the king, is betrayed and defeated and his domain conquered. The player takes on the role of Arslan and his few companions as they strive to reassemble an army and fight against overwhelming odds to liberate the kingdom.
The game adaptation of this magnificent story seamlessly blends the fast-paced tactical action gameplay of the Warriors franchise with a stunningly engaging narrative. Using cel-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!
Published by KOEI TECMO, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is now available across America on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and digitally on PlayStation 3 and for PC via Steam. This title has been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB. More information on the game can be found at the official website at www.koeitecmoamerica.com/arslan.
