Sony has unveiled a selection of new bundles in Japan to tie in with the forthcoming PlayStation 3 release of Bladestorm: The Hundred Years’ War.
Due out from August 30th, Importers and Japanese consumers will be able to purchase a PlayStation 3 60GB console, a copy of Bladestorm and the accompanying official soundtrack release for the price of 61,886 Yen (USD 536).
Alternatively, those who already own a console may be interested in the second bundle on offer, containing a copy of Bladestorm, official soundtrack, concept art book and calendar, which will set you back 9,980 Yen (USD 86)
Bladestorm: The Hundred Years’ War is based off the infamous Hundred Year War between English and French armies during the period 1337 – 1453, and pits players in the shoes of a rogue commander and his entourage of mercenaries, who can align with either side during the game.
Gameplay is largely familiar to developer Koei’s Kessen series previously seen on PlayStation 2, offering users a variety of weapons and infantry to employ in battle, including cavalry, infantry, archers, elephants and more. Troops can gain experience as the battle wages on, and your reputation will affect the quality of units at your disposal.
Bladestorm: The Hundred Years’ War is scheduled for release in North America later this year.
