Koei Tecmo America has come out with a set of new screens, art, and information for Arslan: The Warriors of Legend, their upcoming action game based on The Heroic Legend of Arslan anime and manga. Here’s what we know about the new characters, from their press release:
- Farangis: An exquisitely beautiful priestess of Mithra who was sent to protect Arslan at the battle of Atropatene. Her mysterious skills include an uncanny dexterity with the bow and the ability to communicate with Djinn.
- Gieve: A wandering bard and skilled warrior who initially follows Arslan due to his attraction to Farangis, but gradually grows to care for Arslan’s cause. Although he is proficient with many weapons, he prefers to take on his enemies using an Oud!
- Alfreed: The daughter of the ‘Zot’ tribe leader, Alfreed is an expert rider and quite handy with a bow and sword. He develops an infatuation with Arslan’s strategist, Narsus, after he saves her life.
- Kishward: A Cavalry General of Pars, whose dual-wielding fighting style gave him the name ‘Twin-Blade General’. He has long had a friendly relationship with Arslan thanks to their shared love of falconry.
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is expected to release in early 2016 in North America for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and digitally for PlayStation 3. If you’re lucky enough to be at TGS 2015, Koei Tecmo has a 10 minute demo of the game for you to play.
