Koei Tecmo has announced a new Weapons Arts System for Arslan: The Warriors of Legend
that helps boost the stats and skills of your characters by allowing for the customization of weapons in any number of ways.
Weapon Arts are effectively an attribute type (i.e. Power, Fire, Water etc) that can be attached to a specific weapon. The more a character uses that weapon and gains mastery over it, the more special abilities and powers are unlocked! Since every Weapon Art has a different attack effect, players can combine various weapons with different abilities in a Chain Strike and create devastating and impressive effects in a variety of combos!
One such Weapons Art is Mardan Rush about which we have a trio of videos, as well as a new character trailer.
It [Arslan] 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 and murdered 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.Arslan: The Warriors of Legend
will be coming to Xbox One February 12th, 2016.
