Warriors: Legends Of Troy Marches To Stores In March

warriorstroyKoei Canada has been working on their own version of the long running Warriors franchise. Their game, Warriors: Legends of Troy, eschews the typical historic Eastern setting Koei’s games explore for the Iliad.

 

You’ll see the Trojan War from two sides, the Greeks and Trojans, in Warriors: Legends of Troy. Players get to control iconic characters like Hektor, Paris, Achilles, and even Odysseus. In this game, Odysseus is portrayed as a wise general while Paris is seen as a selfish lad who needs to grow up during the story.

 

Since this is a Warriors title you know there’s going to be hundreds of troops to crush. In addition to armies, Koei Canada threw in mythological creatures and a new grappling system where you can throw enemy units. Warriors: Legends of Troy also has online multiplayer, cooperative and competitive, for up to four players.

 

Warriors: Legends of Troy is scheduled to come out on March 8 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America.

    Not sure what to make of this, I already have Ken’s Rage, and got Sengoku Basara as one of my xmas gifts. so I am bit swamped with the 1vs100 games right now, and even so I am more likely to pick up DW then this simply for nostalgia sake.

      This might actually end up being better than DW 7…

      Yes, and this here is their mission (c&p straight from their homepage)
      “TECMO KOEI CANADA Inc. was established to develop universally appealing games content by mixing the best elements of both Eastern and Western philosophy and culture”

        Best of luck on that.

        We have the advantage of a multi-ethnic society and a far more peaceful outlook and a fairly more open mind then our southern neighbors.

        But that still depends on which province they’re located…

        And even then, there’s a lot of factors to take into account as well…

      Yep! Their first game was Fatal Inertia and then they made Prey the Stars.

    Early March in 2011? That’s just one month after Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll.

    Two days after my birthday. Hopefully, no one will think I want it.

    Do you know if this will have local multiplayer too?

      The last time I heard – a few months ago – it was 1 player offline, 2-4 online.

      • epiphaniesarefun

        awww, that makes me sad :(

        Thanks for the info!

          I know, local multiplayer are what these games are for!

    sticking to their style and try it on various scenario.. 3 kingdoms, sengoku, gundam, hokuto, and now this. Koei should be more respected

    Different clothes, same s***…Unless it has God of War style presentation and a plot that’s told in typical greek badass fashion, in which case it may end up going from medicore to decent surprise. Not holding my breath though.
