The most popular of which is probably the 2013 manga illustrated byÂ Hiromu Arakawa
(Full Metal Alchemist).
Now Koei Tecmo has announced a game based on the recent 2015 anime adaptation of Arakawa's manga version, Arslan: the Warriors of Legend.
As the name suggests, the game will be a Warriors game, developed by Omega Force.
Koei Tecmo have already released an announcement trailer:
Arslan: the Warriors of Legend features cel-shaded graphics, not completely dissimilar to One Piece Pirate Warriors 3's
graphics, but tweaked to mimic Arakawa's
signature art style.
Even this far out, it's already looking pretty wonderful in the trailer.
I've said before with One Piece Pirate Warriors 3
that the Warriors series perhaps shines best with stylised cel-shaded graphics as opposed to the more realistic approach of the mainline games - and Arslan is making me feel the same way.
Originally written as a novella in the late 1980â€™s, the Heroic Legend of Arslan has been adapted to manga and anime numerous times, with the most prominent being the 2013 release of a manga series by famed illustrator Hiromu Arakawa (the creator of Fullmetal Alchemist).
