New Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers Features Shion Gameplay


The debut of Namco Bandai’s latest release in the Saint Seiya series of 3D fighting games, dubbed “Brave Soldiers,” is only a few weeks away. By way of promotion, a new gameplay preview video was released, this time featuring Gold Saint Aries Shion, who will be a bonus download character included in the first run of the Japanese release.

Aries Shion is notable for being one of the most powerful Saints in the series, and for also being the catalyst to several significant events in the series, including succession to the status of Pope, the choosing of Aiolos as his successor, which eventually lead to Gemini Saga’s betrayal and his own death. Though not even death prevented Shion from having a hand in things as – SPOILERS ALERT – he enacted a grand plan from hell along with other dead saints in order to save Athena and the remaining Saints, as well as finally put a stop to Hades.

You can check out the video below:

Brave Soldiers is set to arrive in Japan on October 17, and will also be released in a special limited edition Pegasus box full of extras.
