    Every franchise is getting an MMO these days.

  • Rudy Soto

    That was an awesome trailer.
    Anime Fans of Latin America must have had fangasms at the news.

    Oh man, as an old Saint Seiya fan any news on games for this franchise is good.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Typical of Seiya: He gets a terrible beat up before executing an attack to defeat the enemy.

    It sure is based on the manga cos before every wears white clothes… under their Clothes.

      would have been better if they were evenly matched thats just stupid

    After seeing this I nearly cried Q.Q, I would play this game religiosly if it follows the plotline 

    • Astrid Martínez

      I DID CRY!!!!! :’D 

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Ugh… 3D anime does NOT always work. Especially in this case.

      Since the 8-bit Famicom RPGs (plus the Wonderswan remake), the newer PS2/PS3 Saint Seiya games had always been 3D though..  That’s a pretty cool Mu there w/ blond hair like in the manga :)  but what’s w/ Black Pegasus having white hair..

      Not really into MMO though.. and the new Saint Seiya Omega anime is pretty awful :(…

      Also I was quite surprised to find out from a friend some years ago that Saint Seiya was popular in China too.. I thought it was only big in Hong Kong and Taiwan..

        Its big in France, Italy, Spain, and Latin America

        • Aoshi00

          Yeah i’m aware that saint seiya was big in many parts of Europe and South America as well in addition to Asia. I knew that mainland China did air some anime back then, but didn’t know seiya was one of them. I had bought a rare seiya artbook from a French seller recently. One of my close friends is from Brazil and he loved saint seiya too. W/o that French animator, we probably wouldn’t have gotten the Hades OVAs.. May Araki Shingo rest in peace..

    Very cool indeed! Oh well, lot’s of people down already shared my thoughts about it. Beyond that, just one thing; I have a very vivid memory of the new Final Fantasy XIV trailer and it was just like that; cinematics only. Is that the way people are all about marketing MMOs now?

    Because sure, they pack up a hype and all as the first trailer of FF XIV did waaay back before they see they needed to do this “version 2.0″ or whatever so hey, my point is, what would be nice is to see some gameplay to understand what this is REALLY about y’know…

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    To commerate the release of Saint Seiya Omega with this ehh.^_^

    If the gameplay is nice there, i would love to play this game there.^_^…………… they should use Tohru Furuya as the VA there though.T_T and where is the Pegasus Fantasy song there lol.

  • Speedo Redempteur

    this trailer was ..something..but i don’t like the facial designs

  • RaikageV

    I don’t like those CG trailers which show no gameplay.
    There were many games with epic trailers and crappy gameplay.

  • Guest

    Manga colors > Anime colors

    • Aoshi00

      Araki Shingo/Himeno Michi > Kurumada Masami though.. The cloths would’ve looked much more boring using single color palette.. and most of the Gold Saints would be boring blonde..
