We recently mentioned that Europe was getting some Saint Seiya love with Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers for the PlayStation 3. As it turns out, Namco Bandai intends to bring the game to North America as a downloadable title on the PlayStation Network this coming November.
The fighter will feature around 50 playable characters and will include three story arcs (Sanctuary, Poseidon, and Hades), online multiplayer with character customization to differentiate your character from others online, and a seriously catchy 80s-style rock soundtrack that had me wanting more.
If you're a fan of Saint Seiya, here's your chance to show Namco Bandai that you want more of this kind of thing. It looks like they're testing the waters with a digital release, so make your voice heard.
