The Heroic Legend of Arslan Adds Gieve And Farangis As Playable Characters



Koei Tecmo are making their next Warriors-style anime game with The Heroic Legend of Arslan, in a game where you’ll get to play as Arslan, Daryun, Narsus, and Elm. Here’s a look at two new characters along with a new game feature.

The new action is called the “Mardan Rush,” which lets you lead an entire army into a huge attack to rush down enemies, as shown in the above screenshots.


The Mardan Rush can be activated once you meet certain conditions, and when you do, you’ll get to deal devastating damage with it and they say that it feels great to pull off.


Depending on the type of soldiers you lead, out of cavalry, archers, and foot soldiers, your Mardan Rush will have different characteristics. For example, if you have a bunch of archers, you’ll get to make it rain arrows down on the opponents while providing support to allies.


Again, the Mardan Rush will play a big strategic role in the game, and you’ll need it at times to take on the scenarios.


Next, here’s a look at the two newly announced playable characters.


Gieve (CV: KENN):

Both of the two characters will have their own weapons and characteristics that you might be familiar with from the anime.
