Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is a tactical action title based on the epic novel, manga, and anime IP The Heroic Legend of Arslan. 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.
Based on the renowned novel, 'The Heroic Legend of Arslan', this tactical action epic is keeping close to the spirit of the rebooted anime and manga version illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa, creator of Fullmetal Alchemist
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.
