It comes developed by Dimps and is based on the legendary Saint Seiya manga. There are two editions available which include the Standard Edition and the Collector’s Edition – Seiya Edition – including an exclusive Myth Cloth figurine.
Fans of the Saint Seiva manga will be able to re-live all the greatest sagas from Kurumada’s masterpiece with the Saint Chronicle Mode: Poseidon, Hades and the 12 Gold Saints arcs will all be available with their fair share of strong soldiers. On the Galaxy Wars Mode, gamers will take part in a tournament where they will have to fight and be the last and sole survivor in order to be crowned as the champion! Fighting with hard conditions and certain handicaps is what awaits our bravest soldiers in the Survival Mode.
Also, the classical Versus Mode will be available, whether players want to battle offline or online in order to have bragging rights against your friends and other players around the world. All these modes will allow fans to use their favourite characters and all their sets of attacks, such as Big Bang Attacks, Light Speed Movement, 7th Sense Awakening etc. They will also be able to customise their characters and enhance them with the Cosmic Orbs whilst exclusive orbs are available on the Facebook dedicated page.
