Update: Sources have confirmed that the game’s title is Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers, not “Bout Senses”.


imageNamco Bandai will reveal a new PlayStation 3 game in two days and it’s probably for a Saint Seiya fighting game. Jump revealed Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers, which has characters from the Zodiac Knights, Elysion Chapter, and Saint Seiya Omega in it. The magazine confirmed Kouga, Seiya, Shiryu, Kanon, Tenma, and Rhadamanthys will be in Saint Seiya: Bout Senses.


Back to the teaser site: did you notice the URL?


It’s Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers, perhaps?


Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers is slated for release this Fall on the PlayStation 3 in Japan.

  • Warboss Aohd

    i hope it’s somethin’ else.

  • Astraye

    Saint Seiya occurs in the real world ?

    • Minos

      A semi-alternative version of the “Real World” on 1985.

  • ARMs7777

    Hope its something else too. I watched the show and it was bad.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    I’ve never seen the show, but it’s got one badass OP.

  • Did they actually use weapons? IIRC, I don’t recall the Saint Seiya guys using weapons in that Sanctuary Battle game for the PS3.

    • TiAn

      Libra saints is a sorta “weapon master”, but not so much, some saint had an arm shield but nothing else as far I remember…

    • Aoshi00

      No, no Saints have weapons w/ Libra Dohko as the only exception (Poseidon has a trident and Hades has a sword but they’re gods not saints), they don their cloths and fight w/ bare hands. The last Sanctuary PS3 game was not bad.. wish they would do an RPG like back in the NES days (remade on Wonderswan) instead of fighting games.. I love the original series, but haven’t watched much Omega..

      • neocatzon

        Umm, more saints utilizing weapon not just Libra, a few I remember: Sagittarius’ bow & arrow, Andromeda’s chain, Lyra’s lyra.

        • Aoshi00

          That’s true, guess I missed a few, Lyra from the movie or Asgard wasn’t canon though (Orpheus or Sorento used music), and Aiolos never used his bow and arrow only Seiya does on occasion (when killing a god) And the Nebula Chain was considered an extension of the Andromeda Cloth I think. They kept mentioning out of the 88 constellations Libra was the only one granted by Athena to use weapons. In general, saints, whose fists rend the skies and whose kicks split the earth, only use their bodies to fight and protect the gods.

      • refrain

        All the new enemies in Omega ss2 use weapon

        • L Lawliet

          Omega is a Spin-Off.

      • I see. IIRC… From what I’ve heard, the manga writer of Bleach was inspired by Saint Seiya — and the Zanpakuto weapons were inspired by the ‘different weapons that appeared in the SS show’. I don’t know anything of SS, so I was just asking.

        • Aoshi00

          I don’t remember what kubotite was influenced by.. But there’s rarely any weapon directly used in a battle between saints, even Libra’s weapons were used to rescue Hyoga trapped in ice, destroying the 7 Sea pillars or the Wailing Wall before Elysium and such. Seiya uses the Sagittarius arrow when fighting with the gods as a last resort. There weren’t many weapons in the original Saint Seiya, the special moves were awesome though :)

  • Virevolte

    I like the Saint Seiya universe… but the games don’t convince me.

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      I don’t blame you. They can get really tedious.

  • LynxAmali

    Oh god no.
    You don’t do a teaser for a Saint Seiya game.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Aww, if it was the Lost Canvas I would have been excited.

  • Go2hell66

    *hype killed*

  • refrain

    Cool! I love Saint Seiya. Hope this will be a good game

  • Shin Akiyama

    What have SS to do with Europe? The Teaser was zoomed over europe and afrika, and i think it will zoom more into Europe tomorrow… so what have Saint Seiya to do with Europe… i hope nothing

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    Even Koga and Tenma?! Wait, which Tenma? The one from Next Dimension or the one from Lost Canvas?

  • Tre W

    If they got Dimps to make a new fighting game, this could actually be promising.

    Good luck on getting it localized, though.

  • Epic i love saint seiya and saint seiya sanctuary battle is really cool game i hope is saint seiya game

  • refrain

    The name is Saint Seiya Brave Soldiers, not Bout Senses

  • Brimfyre

    Seems like companies would stop doing teaser sites. They never ever ever ever live up to expectations. So then you are stuck with a “ho hum” announcement.

  • Yan Zhao

    Kagaho better be in it.

  • Brion Valkerion

    countdowns from Japanese companies are never anything actually interesting: Fact.

  • Learii

    if is a saint seiya game that mean is will never come to the west

  • Solomon_Kano

    New Seiya? I’m ready. Missed out on Sanctuary Battle, so I still need to go back for that.

  • 657rod

    It as well could be the rumored Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst for PC. Let´s cros fingers, it would be epic if they anounced both *_*

  • L Lawliet

    “Saint Seiya” is the first Anime i have watched in my life (watched it in the early 90’s), and one of the most recognized here in Brasil, even by non-Otaku people; we even got a Brasillian Portuguese version of “Sanctuary Battle”.

    I hope that the developers come with something good for the community….this Classic needs to be respected.

  • I hope not…

  • Ferrick

    if it were true, hope its from lost canvas’ story arc (and hope that god cloth appears too)

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      Can’t believe the God Cloth was more useful in Lost Canvas than in the original

      • Ferrick

        ikr! the god cloth broke too easily in original, felt more like a decoration than anything XD

        • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

          It’s funny that even Shun claims in the Next Dimension series that he didn’t like the God Cloth.

          • Ferrick

            haha really? i’ve not read next dimensions yet, should check it out

  • Setsu Oh

    which will it take after i wonder.
    tk or sc??
