Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers - English Language Release!


The English langauge release of Saint Seita: Brave Soldiers is out today the 22nd! Fans of this global phenomenom anime franchise: prepare yourself for Namco Bandai's PS3 exclusive arena fighter!


SAINT SEIYA: BRAVE SOLDIERS:

PlayStation®3 [Fighting]

The Goddess Athena has been reincarnated, and it is only through her will and ideals in which the world is protected from the machinations of ancient Olympian Gods. At her side are 5 loyal retainers - mystical warriors who carry the power of the sacred Cloths, magical armor derived from the stellar constellations containing incredible power. Together they wage war for the sake of humanity with the power of the cosmos.  

Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers is a arena fighting game that faithfully recreates the look and feel of the globally popular anime/manga Saint Seiya. Featuring over 50 playable characters from the 3 major story arcs: Sanctuary, Poseidon and Hades plus new characters exclusive to the game, fans of this famous series will definitely find a game that does the source material justice. The battle system is labelled by Namco Bandai as a "Light Speed Combo Battle" where in players can switch and chain up complex combinations activiting cosmo energized moves. As well, players can make gambits by activating the 7th Sense power; by removing their armor for enchanced speed and strength, this optional extra boost makes for risky and exciting gameplay. 

With a robust set of features, online vs multiplayer (there's even a 5 vs 5 mode) and leaderboards, a visual style that recreates the anime, original voice acting from the original series actors, a means to customize a Saint of your own, Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers is a solid entry into anime based fighters.
