The game is set to focus heavily on the lore of the Arslan narrative so far, and Koei Tecmo confirmed the following about the content of their upcoming title:
Arslan: The Warriors Of Legend will include an array of original scenarios fans of The Heroic Legend Of Arslan are bound to love! These extra scenarios are based on episodes of the original novels and manga, but they were never part of the animated series. They will gradually become unlocked via the Story mode and can be played in the Free mode of the game, allowing players to become increasingly more familiar with its history and playable characters.
