Arslan: the Warriors of Legend Announced for Early 2016

Koei Tecmo have announced a new tactical action title that combines the worlds of it's Dynasty Warriors series and the anime/manga/novel The Heroic Legend of Arslan. The most notable adaptation is the 2013 manga release. Here's some info on that:
The Heroic Legend of Arslan 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 is looking to try and combine the tactical action of the Warriors series with the engaging story that Arslan: The Warriors of Legend has to offer. The character design will all be based on the anime series of the same name to give the most engaging and immersive experience possible.

This isn't the first crossover Koei Tecmo has done with it's Warriors series. Hyrule Warriors, which released last year, combined the world of the Warriors series with that of hit Nintendo series The Legend of Zelda. Hyrule Warriors has a very respectable 76 on Metacritic, so the stage is set for a very solid game for anime fans to get stuck into when the game releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PlayStation 3 early next year. Here's the announcement trailer to wet your appetite.
