Jump Force – Saint Seiya Reveal Trailer

Bandai Namco has revealed in a new trailer, that Seiya and Shiryu from the Saint Seiya series, will be joining the roster in Jump Force.

Appearing in iconic manga series Saint Seiya, Seiya and Shiryu are members of the Knights of the Zodiac, a group of handpicked warriors that have pledged to protect justice and peace across the world.

Pegasus Seiya is the Saint of the Pegasus constellation – famous for his unbending resolve and unbreakable mind. When in dire need, Seiya can call upon the power of the Gold Cloth of Sagittarius, increasing his strength to its ultimate limit.

The second playable character from Saint Seiya is Dragon Shiryu. Protected by the Dragon constellation, he is one of the calmest and most composed of all Saints. He is also one of the few Bronze Saints deemed worthy enough to wear the Gold Cloth. When needed, he can summon great strength from the Libra Cloth using its many weapons to defeat his foes.

The game features characters from these series: Bleach, Dragon Ball, Hunter x Hunter, Naruto, One Piece, Yu-gi-oh, and Yu Yu Hakusho. Death Note’s Light and Ryuk will be featured in the story mode, however, will not be playable characters.

Jump Force is set to launch in February 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A closed beta for the game will commence on October 12th and conclude on October 14th.
