New game feature revealed: Elam’s cooking!
Koei Tecmo announced today the release of a playable demo for upcoming anime-based tactical action title Arslan: the Warriors of Legend for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system.
The demo will be available for free download via the PlayStation®Network on 12th January 2016 and will include missions from the initial stages of the game, taking players through a short tutorial session using two key characters: Arslan, the Prince of Pars, and his protector Daryun. Additionally, it will showcase a set of new moves and powers developed for Arslan: the Warriors of Legend, like the Mardan Rush and Weapon Arts special attacks!
Lastly, an exciting new Free Mode feature has been revealed that will delight fans of the anime! As anyone who has watched the Heroic Legend of Arslan will know, Narsus’s page Elam is a culinary genius and his cooking often delights his co-travellers during their quest. This gastronomic side of Elam’s has now been incorporated into the battle preparations!
During the course of the game, players can locate and collect recipe books hidden all through the story mode. These can be used in the Free Mode prior to battle to give the controlled character an ability boost! The various foods, such as Lamb Skewers, Stewed Chicken, and Potluck Soup, can provide different effects, i.e. increased health, attack boosts, healing, bonus gold, bonus experience and more!
Arslan: the Warriors of Legend will be available across Europe on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft on 12th February 2016. It will also be simultaneously available digitally on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
