In partnership with gaming giant Tencent and author Masami Kurumada, Yoozoo Games has launched a new mobile RPG based on the popular ‘80s manga Saint Seiya. The game has already leapt to the top of the highest-grossing RPG charts across various Asian territories, and its wider global release is your chance to join the action.
Fans of the manga will be in familiar territory, as Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac draws heavily from the source. You play as a Saint, one of the warriors tasked with protecting the wise goddess Athena from rival Olympian gods. As an RPG, there’s plenty of storytelling and dialogue to enjoy, with a number of notable voice actors from Attack on Titan and Code Geass amongst the cast. The story is interspersed with challenging turn-based combat, with you and your party taking on powerful foes using a range of flashy attacks (launched with hadouken-style battle cries).
Your party is made up of the characters you collect and select as the game progresses. There are plenty of familiar faces from the manga and anime, and hundreds in total to discover – each with their own star rating, abilities and statistics. The graphics are true to the anime aesthetic, but rendered in full 3D making battle sequences particularly dynamic.
