    Every kid’s dream… At least every 90′ otaku kid’s dream… And late 80’… And then some…

    • Arcana Wiz

      yes!!! i remember seeing saint seya when i was a kid, that anime gave me many great memories, however i never saw the movies/ova and until now i didn’t see how seiya encountered his sister.

      • Sergio Briceño

        Oh. You have one big read ahead of you then sir. Even if you were to watch the Hades chapter (which comes after the series) I don’t think you could finish in just one sitting.

        • Arcana Wiz

          …. yeah i plan to finish the saga sometime, it just that i never have the time.

  • Arcana Wiz

    great, i’m really looking forward this game, SS is one of my first animes and it was great…. and yes totally biased person here ;D

    • Kevin Schwarz

      I am joining the ranks of biased people here, sir! SS is the best anime I had in my childhood. The game on ps3 looks great also!

      • Arcana Wiz

        yes it looks ^.^

    • leingod

      Heh, same here. I’ll miss the Asgard guys, but what we’re getting is already awesome… and looks way superior to the previous game.

      Now, if there only was a Captain Tsubasa game in the works…

  • Demeanor

    Very very very good, the best ones. And this pretty much ensures that God Cloths will be in, yeah!!! My favourite Saint will always be Shaka though. I wonder if they’ll pull any stunts like making Saori playable, that’d be fun! XD Also, I wonder if the different cloths for the 5 protagonists count as 5 characters or 15… or even 20.

      That’s so cruel.. Saori-saaaaan!!!! Sad for Pokkle in HxH Chimera Ant too :(..

      Anyway, so glad the Poseidon-arc is finally featured in a Saint Seiya game after over 20 yrs.. love the translation in this trailer.

    • leingod

      Heh, Saori is so freaking useless. The other gods at least give a fight.

  • leingod

    Can’t wait for this game to release! And I still wanna know if the latin american version will include an english language setting, since it’ll be way easier to get than the european one (for me).

    • Koibito888

      Why not just get the US version? (unless you aren’t from the US lol).

      • leingod

        Maybe I will, but I usually prefer physical copies… that’s why I’m aiming for the others (US one is digital-only)

        • Koibito888

          See I prefer physical too, that’s why it kills me to get the US version but don’t you want to show that we have fandom over here? The entire point of us getting a US version is to test out if it’s worth it to bring Saint Seiya stuff over here. If everyone imports it then to them it will look like we don’t give a crap over here.

          On the flip side if we prove we have a fandom, that could open their eyes to the fact that we actually do love Saint Seiya over here and that could mean even more merchandise, maybe even a dubbed game over here one day. That’s never gonna happen though if we don’t at least try with this. I mean we’re in a time where it’s been long enough since the lack of success of the anime and where we’ve bought enough stuff out of country that some company is finally asking “huh. I wonder if US actually does like Saint Seiya” and this might be the last time they wonder that if we show that we don’t. That’s why I’m getting it and it’s probably best if there’s any hope for merchandise over here now.

          • leingod

            I get your point, but I’m not from the US :P … you were right when you joked about it before. I’m still getting the US version if the LA one doesn’t have an english option though (the previous game didn’t)

          • Koibito888

            Ah see when you said maybe you would get the US version I assumed, my bad haha. I do hope more people get the US version though, I really want them to realize the fandom here.
