Andromeda Shun is armed with a long whip that gives him more reach than the other playable characters in Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle. Phoenix Ikki lacks in that area, but he has swift combos and burning fists.
A note on the developer’s blog explains these videos were taken from a build completed in late July. The final game will have voiceovers during battle scenes.
The staff also teased a release date for Japan will be announced on August 19 along with pre-order incentives. Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle will be released this year in Japan. Europe will get the PlayStation 3 game in 2012. Unfortunately, this title will not be released in North America.
