Saint Seiya Set for PS3

Andriasang: Namco Bandai is readying a PlayStation 3 conversion of the popular Saint Seiya manga and anime. Revealed in a two page spread in this month's issue of V Jump, the PS3 game is titled "Saint Seiya Senki" (which could perhaps be translated as Saint Seiya Chronicle). (PS3, Saint Seiya Senki)

So you're honestly going to put down $90 to import a fan-service title?

I'll admit I'm eying SRW, but at least that's a long running and established game series. This is a "new" IP with unknown game mechanics.

@jwk94:
Its a game that appeals to fans as well as people generally familiar with series.

"Fan-service" is not just about showing boobs.

How is this fan-service?

be careful guys , so far the saint seiya games have only been awful .
Deadman_Senji  +   1034d ago
Well then I guess Koei's Fist of the North Star game is just empty fanservice, forget that it's a fairly solid game, the "fanservice" is just too much.. Oh, and Dissidia too

/eyeroll

No I wouldnt import the game, I'm hoping for a western release if it's good. I never got a chance to get into the Saint Seiya series but always wanted to. As I understand it, the series doesn't even have much exposure in the West. Most people, even anime fans probably don't even know what it is. This game might be a good opportunity to raise awareness and interest in the series. Maybe give them a reason to localize it.

Um, actually it and Dissidia are fan-service titles. Its just that unlike the majority of movie based games they have a less than remote chance of being good.

Thought if you're talking about the new Fist of the North Star its up for debate if it was good, or bearably playable.

Anyone care to enlighten me what this is about? I've never heard of this series, and I follow anime regularly.

Saint Seiya is an old school Anime. I'm talking original Macross and Voltron old.

If you've ever seen an anime called Rounin Warriors, this is very similar.

It's about a group of teenagers that are gifted armors in a place called sanctuary to fight off evil gods and there followers. They call themselves the Athena Saints. And of course, they fight on behalf of the goddess Athena.

Yeah saint seiya is an old cult serie in both manga and anime ... just like Hokuto no Ken .

It's quite famous in japan obviously , but also in parts of Europe .

It's also the only one of those shonen shows to spawn great manga/anime spin offs (saint seiya G , and lost canvas) , and to feature a great filler story arc for its anime (asgard)

what? this is amazing....i love saint seiya, however, what they did with the last part of the hades saga, inferno and elysium if unforgivable...hiring a hwole new staff on the most important saga was the stupidest shit that mney grabber murakami could ever do....lost canvas is far and beyond way better than the last part of hades...
