Phoenix Ikki And Andromeda Shun Burn In New Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle Vids

By Spencer . August 5, 2011 . 2:02pm

Andromeda Shun is armed with a long whip that gives him more reach than the other playable characters in Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle. Phoenix Ikki lacks in that area, but he has swift combos and burning fists.



A note on the developer’s blog explains these videos were taken from a build completed in late July. The final game will have voiceovers during battle scenes.


The staff also teased a release date for Japan will be announced on August 19 along with pre-order incentives. Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle will be released this year in Japan. Europe will get the PlayStation 3 game in 2012. Unfortunately, this title will not be released in North America.

    Seriously, why does Namco Bandai always do these quick cash-in games? I’m surprised people actually buy them, because they lack originality. If I had their properties I would do things differently.

        Pick anything with their name on it… you’ll see what I mean. 

        As for your second question? Give it an actual story, first of all.

    I noticed the wording at the end of the article is “It will not be released in North Amerca.” instead of something like “There are no plans to release the title in North America.” I apologize if you guys have said this in a previous article, but can someone enlighten me as to when this was said by Namco?

    • We asked a rep from Namco Bandai Games America who confirmed to us, the game will not be released in North America.

    “Andromeda Shun is armed with a long whip”
    Correction is not a whip is a chain or I should say two chains.

    • One for defense and another one for attack!
