Saint Seiya Coming to PS3

Namco Bandai readying cinematic melee action title based off popular manga and anime.

If the usual pattern holds, we should be getting a first official online look at the PS3 conversion of Saint Seiya this coming week. (The above is not official artwork from the game.)

Namco Bandai is readying a PlayStation 3 conversion of the popular Saint Seiya manga and anime. Revealed in a two page spread in this month's issue of V Jump, the PS3 game is titled "Saint Seiya Senki" (which could perhaps be translated as Saint Seiya Chronicle).

Jump describes the adaptation's genre as "cinematic melee action." The various Saints will be facing off against countless enemies. Characters confirmed or the game include Cygnus Hyoga, Dragon Shiryu, Andromeda Shun, Pegasus Seiya and Phoenix Ikki.

While there are no gameplay specifics yet, Jump does mention that as you fight, you'll see messages from your fellow saints, shown at the bottom of the screen.

A release is set for this Fall.
