Koei Tecmo announced today that Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is coming to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox One in early 2016 in North America and Europe. It will be available on PS4 and Xbox One through retail and digital stores, while the PS3 version is digital-only.

Based on The Heroic Legend of Arslan IP where the young crown prince of Pars, Arslan, is forced out of his kingdom when his father, the king, is betrayed and defeated and his domain conquered, here’s what Koei Tecmo adds about The Warriors of Legend:

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!

And here’s some details on the first announced playable characters:

  • Arslan: The young prince of the kingdom of Pars
  • Daryun: A skilled commander of the Pars cavalry
