Jump Force’s Latest Trailer Reveals Saint Seiya Characters Pegasus Seiya and Dragon Shiryu
Bandai Namco Entertainment released a new trailer for Jump Force today, revealing that Saint Seiya characters would be joining the battle.
Arena fighting game Jump Force from Spike Chunsoft and Bandai Namco Entertainment is on the road to becoming, if not already being, one of the most insane crossovers for manga and anime fans ever. Characters from Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto, Death Note, Bleach, Hunter X Hunter, and Yu-Gi-Oh! have already been unveiled, and today a new trailer revealed that characters from from Saint Seiya will be entering the fray as well.
Specifically, Pegasus Seiya and Dragon Shiryu will be joining the battle in Jump Force. For those who don’t know, both characters are part of the Knights of the Zodiac who protect and keep peace throughout the world. Seiya is the Saint of the Pegasus Constellation, hence his full name, and in addition to his steadfast nature, Jump Force also portrays his ability to call upon the Gold Cloth of Sagittarius to increase his power in a pinch.
Meanwhile, Dragon Shiryu is the Saint of the Dragon Constellation, and is very composed and skilled. For his strongest attacks, Shiryu calls upon the Libra Cloth, which you can see in action in the trailer. This new trailer also gives us our first glimpse at a new Mayan stage infused with elements from the Shonen series featured, just like other stages in Jump Force.
You can check out the trailer introducing the Saint Saiya characters below. Jump Force is currently set to hit PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime in February 2019. You can currently pre-order the game on Amazon.
