Namco Bandai release another fighter based on a popular Japanese anime series.
"Saint Seiya, or more commonly known as Knights of the Zodiac in North America, is a classic anime and manga series from around the 1980s that has similar aspects to other anime such as Dragon Ball Z and Naruto. As most know, Dragon Ball Z and Naruto have video games that have already landed in North America, but Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers is one of a couple of Saint Seiya games to hit North American shores. Being familiar to the anime and manga world I’ve seen Saint Seiya in magazines and such, but I have never actually watched or read the series, although it’s not to say that I’ve never been interested in it. Also, being a fan of fighting games I was excited to see what the fighting mechanics were going to be like in this game. With pretty long-haired boys, Greek mythology, topped off with Japanese animation, I was ready to immerse myself in the world of Saint Seiya, while of course kicking some butt on the way."
