Koei Tecmo has released a new character trailer and details introducing the “Weapon Arts” system and new stages of Arslan: The Warriors of Legend.
Here’s the overview, via Koei Tecmo:
Since success in battle heavily relies on the prowess of individual characters, Arslan: The Warriors of Legend features a new gameplay element that helps boost the skills and abilities of playable characters in a unique and exciting way! Specifically, players will be able to use Weapon Arts to upgrade and customize their weapons of choice to a high degree.
Weapon Arts are effectively an attribute type (i.e. Power, Fire, Water etc.) that can be attached to a specific weapon. The more a character uses that weapon and gains mastery over it, the more special abilities and powers are unlocked. Since every Weapon Art has a different attack effect, players can combine various weapons with different abilities in a Chain Strike and create impressive and devastating effects in a variety of combos!
Koei Tecmo has announced the locations of two more stages: the rocky slopes of Mount Bashur and the beautiful yet troubled kingdom of Shindhura.
