Arslan: The Warriors of Legend Gets Release Date

By Cindy Minguez, 1 year ago
We've had lots of media from Koei Tecmo for its upcoming hack 'n slash Arslan: The Warriors of Legend, and today we have a lot more, including screens, artwork, and three new videos. More importantly, we now have a release date.

For those new to the party, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is a tactical action title based on the novel The Heroic Legend of Arslan, the inspiration for the anime and manga versions of the same name. In keeping with the spirit of the title, which pits one warrior against a thousand enemies, the game uses a new technique called "Marden Rush":

Designed to match the setting of ‘The Heroic Legend of Arslan’, this action allows players to wipe out large numbers of enemies by taking control of special ‘Rush’ units (mounted, ranged, or melee) and dealing devastating damage.

In addition to controlling army units, the game also features new battle moves for individual characters, like 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.
So, if you enjoy wiping out hordes of enemies, this game might be for you.
