To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Saint Seiya manga Tencent and YOOZOO Games have teamed up to bring Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac to the West. The game has been extremely popular in Asian countries so now we can see what the fuss is about.
One of the main focus points for the developers was to be loyal to the source material. To make sure fans feel at home immediately, the soundtrack is reminding of the original. They’ve also drafted in several high profile voice actors who’ve worked on other series like Attack on Titan.
The game will take players on a nostalgia trip as they revisit moments and places from the show. The Wailing Wall and even Elysion will make an appearance. It certainly sounds like it’s been made with fans in mind, which is nice to see.
As they make their way through the game players will gather a huge roster of characters to choose from when making their team. There will be over 100 characters to choose from that include the Specters, Andromeda Shun and even Saori. They’ll have their own abilities that can synergise with other characters, so there’s a lot of potential strategies with a roster of that size.
Once you feel like you’ve assembled an unbeatable team you can try your hand at multiplayer. Players will do battle for the coveted Golden Cloth in Galactic Duels in real-time PVP battles.
