Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is Coming West in Early 2016 Across PS3, PS4, and XB1

Koei Tecmo has confirmed they’re localizing Arslan: The Warriors of Legend in both North America and Europe.

The game is a musou action game that is based off the novel, manga, and anime The Heroic Legend of Arslan. While a release window is set for early 2016, fans can expect the game on Playstation 4 and Xbox One in both digital and retail formats, as well as a digital-only release on Playstation 3.

You can get a synopsis for the game below, via Koei Tecmo:

Originally written as a novella 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). It 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 defeated 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.

The game adaptation of this magnificent story seamlessly blends the fast paced tactical action gameplay indicative of the Warriors franchise with a stunningly engaging narrative. Using cell-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!
