The latest Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle trailer shows Pegasus Seiya, Dragon Shiryu, and Cygnus Hyoga punching their way through Dimps’ PlayStation 3 game. Next week, Namco Bandai will release another trailer showcasing Cygnus Hyoga and Andromeda Shun.


Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle will be released in Japan this year and will head to Europe in 2012. Namco Bandai have no plans to release this title in North America.

    Glad to see more variety to the attacks available, at least more than I expected. Still no voices… PLEASE use the old cast. I understand Shiryu can’t have his old voice but use the old cast for everyone else.

    • Aoshi00

      If Kurumada has any say on the voices again, he would probably be stubborn and continue to use the new voice cast like in the later Hades OVAs or the 2nd PS2 game, against the wishes of all the fans..  Unfortunately I have a feeling Furuya and co. would not be called to reprise their iconic roles.. otherwise we would’ve heard him narrating the initial trailers alrdy.. who’s a bigger fan of Saint Seiya than the original voice of Seiya himself :(…  It’s really a pity.. I mean I could get used to the new voices, they’re actually not so bad once you get used to them (actually I take that back, Orikasa Fumiko is no Han Keiko as Saori/Athena).. but all the original voices for the Bronzes are still active seiyuu and could perform their roles well (except Shiryu who has passed away), Kurumada just didn’t care and made the stupidest decision ever :(… If Furuya Tohru gets to come back, then I will believe in miracles and the cosmos again :P…

  • If there is going to be no dlc stuff I am so going to import it since Namco-Bandai NA region slacks on this.

    The more i see it, the more i think it should be cel shading, every anime game is going cel shading and there is a reason.
    As for the beat them all part, i see a lot of combos but i’m not fan of the cosmos effects for shiryu with the dragon

  • TempestTwin

    its a shame namco bandai published and is distributing the game. I wished NISA got to it, would of been awesome to see this game come out in english.

    • Barrit
      • TempestTwin

        ah ok awesome, thanks alot, for that, cant believe i never noticed. Well if thats the case that means theres more chance that it will come out where i live in Australia, which is PAL. Awesome. :)

    • That logic barely makes sense.

      • TempestTwin

        Yeah it totally doesnt because namco bandai totally release all of their tales of titles over here….

  • Christian Wright

    for a beat em up this game has a little flair

  • theworldofnoboundries

    Hmm this week we have Hyoga and next we have Hyoga again? no Phoenix and it seems the lack of voice acting really lower the sense of excitement for me. I hope Bamco will quickly include voice acting inside to increase the exitement  for the fans.

    • Aoshi00

      The reason there’s still no voice acting is most likely they would be using the new voice cast like the 2nd PS2 game and the later Hades OVAs.. which no fans in Japan cared for at all.. so that’s why they’re probably still avoiding voices in these several trailers.. otherwise we would’ve alrdy heard Furuya Tohru yelling “Burn My Cosmos” and all the fans would be excited… a pity indeed..

  • heartless141

    i’m tired of these one by one. they need to make one single game with Fist of the North Star, Saint Seiya, Dragon Balls, and whatever else you can think of.
    and with that we can have a series with a roster rivals the main Dynasty Warrior games

    • That would also create the deadliest fanbase ever.

  • shion16

    The first DLC for this game is gonna be: a brain for these guys.

        just look them, even in dynasty warrior the enemies have better reactions than them

        • GVmanX

          It is made by Dimps, after all.

      • LynxAmali

        He means better AI aka Harder Difficulty.

  • Those goons take the I out of AI…

  • “Saint Musou” or “Dynasty Warriors: Zodiac”? Hmm…

  • I’ll need to import this from Europe since Bandai only works on Naruto titles nowadays. If its not named Naruto or Dragon Ball they just ignore the franchise or take years to localize (Graces F announced on February 2011 with an unannounced release date  within 2012)

    • GVmanX

      Saint Seiya was never popular in the US because Dic (I think) ran it into the ground, so, for once, Bandai is innocent.

      • True. It isn’t popular in the US, yet the rest of the continent still follows the series. Heck… here in Mexico we even got the Hades Saga dubbed in local tv.

  • Masengan

    Those sound effects… need to be more varied…

  • It looks repetitive :/
