Jump Force Adds Pegasus Seiya and Dragon Shiryu from Saint Seiya
Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe revealed today the addition of Saint Seiya characters – Pegasus Seiya and Dragon Shiryu – to the roster of their upcoming popular fighting game, Jump Force.
Fans of the Saint Seya will be pleased to know that Seiya will be able to summon the Gold Cloth of Sagittarius and Shiryu will be able to summon the Gold Cloth of Libra, to increase their strength.
Check out the reveal trailer of Seiya and Shiryu in Jump Force, featuring some gameplay footage:
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.
Also revealed today is the Mayan City stage, where Jump Force fighters will do battle across ancient ruins of the Central American civilization.
Jump Force will be available in February, 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
