KOEI Tecmo America today released a new trailer for Omega Force’s upcoming beat-’em-up Arslan: The Warriors of Legend. The trailer offers a fresh look at the game’s beautiful, cel-shaded visuals and over-the-top action.
Check out the trailer below:
In addition to the new trailer, KOEI TECMO has 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.
Based on the renowned novel, The Heroic Legend of Arslan, this tactical action epic keeps close to the spirit of the rebooted anime and manga version illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa, creator of Fullmetal Alchemist. As such, in addition to the Warriors series’ traditional thrilling action of one versus a thousand, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend incorporates a new type of action – the Mardan 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, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend also features new battle moves for individual characters, such as the Chain Strike. As the game’s 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.
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is slated to release on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in North America on February 9, 2016.
