Bandai Namco continues to roll in the reveals for its highly anticipated Jump Force game as it adds impressive names to the roster from franchises all over. The latest reveal is perfect for fans of the Saint Seiya franchise as Pegasus Seiya and Dragon Shiryu are both confirmed to be playable additions to the roster!
For those unfamiliar with the series, it's a Japanese manga series that follows five mystical warriors called - you guessed it - Saints. These saints are empowered by mystical energy called Cosmo as they swear allegiance to the Greek Goddess Athena against the other Gods that seek control over Earth.
This series spawned a few animated works and now it has joined the ever-eclectic Jump Force game alongside other big names in the anime / manga-verse such as Death Note, Dragon Ball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh, and much more.
We still don't have a release date for the ultimate anime and manga mashup but we do know it is coming next year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
