Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers is a PlayStation 3 fighting game from Namco Bandai that features over 50 characters from the Saint Seiya (aka Knights of the Zodiac) franchise.


Just like in the original series, each character uses a mystical energy known as Cosmo to fight. In this game, you build up Cosmo by attacking your opponent, holding down the L2 button, or waiting over time. By building up Cosmo, you will be able to execute other techniques.


When you press the R2 button the moment your opponent strikes, you dodge their attack at the speed of light. If you’re standing at a close range, you will circle around them, getting a clear shot at their back.

By pressing the circle button, you can unleash a special attack, such as Seiya’s Pegasus Meteor Fist. By holding L2 while you press the circle button, you will unleash an even more powerful attack. When two equally matched special attacks collide, they will nullify each other.

By pressing L2 and the X button, you can dash straight towards your enemy. You can also use this technique in mid-air.

By holding L2 and pressing the square or triangle button, you can also execute a burst attack. When you press the square button, you will deliver a blow that knocks the enemy back. The triangle button will execute an uppercut that knocks the enemy into the air.

In battle, there is also a Seven Senses gauge, which lets you unleash your Seven Senses with the R3 button, drastically increasing your attack power and defense.

Lastly, each character has an ultimate Big Bang Attack activated with the R2 button, which is a throwback to the original series.
