YOOZOO Games is teaming up with developer Tencent and Masami Kurumada – known throughout the world as the creator of Saint Seiya – to publish Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac, an rpg for both pc and mobile platforms. Saint Seiya is one of the longest (and most loved) running manga/anime franchises to ever hit the shelves.
Manga enthusiasts of Saint Seiya can recall the basics of this story – mystical warriors – called Knights of the Zodiac but better known as Saints in the actual manga who wear armor based on the Zodiac sign they derive their power and can tap its cosmos– who are sworn to protect the goddess Athena as she stands up to other Olympian gods who threaten humanity.
Fans will be able to choose one of the Saints, and in line with the original manga plot they must advance in combat during game progression. Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac is an action-packed, visually immersive game featuring stunning 3D graphics. Care is taken by the developers to emulate Kurumada’s classic style both with the characters, the scenes and fighting styles right out of the original manga. The game allows players to choose from hundreds of fighters allowing players to customize their team members and fighting strategy.
As an additional bonus, the game will contain a cast of some of Japan’s most famous character voice-overs, including such names as Jun Fukuyama (voice of Lelouch in Code Geass) and Yuki Kaji (Eren Yeager in Attack on Titan)!
