We've been keeping an eye on Koei Tecmo's new musou crossover for some time now, but we were never too sure whether or not it would end up coming West. But today, the publisher's revealed that Arslan: The Warriors of Legend will be venturing overseas on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in early 2016.

First, let's get a bit of background info out of the way. The game's based on a Japanese creation known as The Heroic Legend of Arslan, which was first published as a series of novels back in 1986. It's been going for a long time, but now the property's back on the rise thanks to all new manga and anime adaptations.

If the art style seems familiar, that's because the aforementioned manga was penned by Hiromu Arakawa, the artist behind the rather popular Fullmetal Alchemist, and the upcoming action title will adapt her style.

Needless to say, it looks pretty attractive on Sony's newest console, sporting some great cel shaded visuals. What do you reckon? Are you up for this? Smash hundreds of peons away with a single blow in the comments section below.
