    Day 1 purchase.

  • fairysun

    Namco Bandai is on the roll with video game anime lately ….

    • Pdugna

      Yeah and with alot of support some of the bigger ones are coming West like jojos

  • Ferrick

    kinda wished that it went up to Elysium arc =/

    but oh well, will buy

    • L Lawliet

      It will cover the Elysium Arc. Not completely though. :(

      • Koibito888

        We don’t know that, they still might.

    • Aoshi00

      yeah, it will have covered the whole Hades arc until the very end including Elysium if they meet Hades. guess they would just skip Hypnos and Thanatos w/ text or cutscene? Totally hyped for this game and can’t wait, spanning 3 arcs.. actually they should do a pre-Sanctuary game starting w/ the Galaxian War, Black Saints, and Silver Saints, like the first Golden Legend on the Famicom. guess I’m just being greedy lol (been watching the old episodes lately)

      Lightning Returns, Brave Soldiers, Drakengard 3, Beyond Two Souls, gonna be busy..

      • GVmanX

        Color me unenthused. Dimps is reusing assets from SC, and I’m honestly doubting that Hypnos, Thanatos, and the God Cloths will be in this game even though they’re so important to the plot. I also hate how they said there’d be over fifty characters despite how most of ’em are just the five main Bronze Saints in their different cloth variants. They’re better be some moveset differences between them.

        • Aoshi00

          yeah, they probably won’t, I actually didn’t think there’d be too many chars, I know they would count the Surplice ones as different ones. I don’t think they would count the Hades bronze as separate though. Still, the fact that Poseidon arc is featured in a Saint Seiya game for the first time ever (w/ all the veteran seiyuu returning for the Marina Generals too) is a big enough draw. At first I thought it would be only Sanctuary (yet again) plus Poseidon and Hades themselves and that’s it. now we have Sanctuary, Poseidon, Hades Sanctuary, and Underworld, this game is a lot longer than I expected already. I liked Sanctuary Battle and pre-ordered this already. The only thing that would get me more excited is for them to feature Asgard one day (yes, it’s not in the manga, but still a major part of the TV series)

          I would be cool if they would release the new animation drawn for the Pachinko machine, as unlockable extra maybe.. I would even buy it on a DVD or blu-ray..

          • Koibito888

            Seiya V1, V2, and V3 are all separate characters and the same goes for all main 5.

          • SoundMatch

            Goddamit it they need to make the entire series even if on separate BluRay discs for each arc. I hate how we never get a fulfilling complete package. Cloth variants shouldn’t count as separate characters.

      • Koibito888

        You know we actually don’t know that for sure. Yes I’m fairly convinced that they will be coping out on God Cloths but there is a few images of a nearly completed roster and there is some space. At the bottom there are only three spaces at the end of the Hades Arc section. One should obviously be going to Hades but two spaces just before him are open. I don’t see anyone else getting those spots. It makes too much sense for Thanatos and Hypnos to be playable. Plus, the trailers never show Marin and Shaina but I highly doubt that this means they won’t be in.

  • TheMightyKamina

    It’s too much wishful thinking,that i want the divine cloths in this

    • Lifestreamer

      Nah, I want them too, and Seiya’s “God cloth” from the Tenkai Hen: Josho movie (it appears after the credits for like 5 seconds lol), even though the Pegasus Kamui is prettier.

      • SoundMatch

        Apparently it is the Glory form of the Pegasus Cloth. Glory being the cloths for angels as seen in Next Dimension. I WANNA SEE THE CONTINUATION OF IT SO BAD. Seeing Seiya know there is something wrong and realizes the truth and tries to fight against Apollo once more. Damn.

        • Vash bane

          off topic ND sounds awesome so the name of it is glory cloth? so its beyond divine or like right in-between?

          • SoundMatch

            Its the cloth of Angels. Touma’s is called “Sleeping Angel”. If you mean divine like the god cloths (or blessed by a blood of a god) then no. I’m guessing it may be made be Hephaestus (I call him Hepatitis) making it close to a gold cloth.

    • Koibito888

      I really want them in but I’m really scared they won’t be in. If you’ve seen the roster, different cloths count as characters (so we really only have like 40 different characters with four versions of Seiya, Shiryu, Hyoga, and three of Ikki and Shun being separate characters) and there is no space left out of the still unrevealed characters for reasonable God Cloth placement. Unless they awkwardly make them costumes for V3’s, I’m doubting they will be in D:

  • leingod

    Looks awesome. I specially like that characters actually look like their anime counterparts now, as opposed to the “plastic figure” look that previous games had.

  • Learii

    I hope they bring J-Stars VS to usa and more anime games

    • Koibito888

      They probably cant with J-Stars. Not because it wouldn’t be popular, because they know it would, just with the rights being weird over here it would cost too much to bring it over here.

      • Learii

        what you mean by cost too much?

        • Koibito888

          The rights to each series here are awkward so to bring it over here, the company would have to go and buy rights to every single anime represented in the game over here (even if they have them already in japan) just to put it over here subbed. It’s way too much money for any game company to spend on one game.

          • Learii

            well they bring project x zone over tho so why not they do the same with this one

          • Koibito888

            Probably because they don’t have to buy the japanese rights to their content and then come over here to separately buy all the rights over here as well. With Project x Zone it’s not as complicated as all that.

  • Vash bane

    wait if they are going hades then will there be the other two gods aswell(I havnt looked up info of this game in awhile so I don’t know the roster)?

  • Koibito888

    Galaxian Wars/Tournament mode confirmed, also Marin, Jabu, and oddly enough Ichi.
