Less than a week after the release of Naruto x Boruto Ninja Voltage, Bandai Namco has published another anime/manga based game. Saint Seiya Cosmo Fantasy is a gacha game promising gamers over 100 characters from the Saint Seiya universe to collect and power up. The game has extremely simple combat mechanics, with players only having control over when to execute their heroes’ skills. Combat is complemented by some visual novel style cut-scenes. Outside of combat gamers have access to the typical gacha game arsenal of modes, including an arena, events, and more.
Saint Seiya originally started out as a manga featured in Weekly Shounen Jump in 1985. It has since grown to be a franchise that includes anime, films, video games, and more. The series follows Seiya from as he becomes a saint (special mystical warrior), as well as his numerous fights in the Greek mythology filled universe he lives in. Cosmo Fantasy was originally released in Japan as Saint Seiya Zodiac Brave in 2016. As with other Bandai Namco Entertainment games, players should be aware that Cosmo Fantasy does not offer cloud saving and the game will need to download a lot of data when you first launch it.
Saint Seiya Cosmo Fantasy is free and contains in app purchases. Here is a trailer and an excerpt from the game’s Google Play description with more information:
