Background


Saint Seiya Soul of Gold cover
Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold is an original anime series that features, for the very first time, the gold saints as the main protagonists. This series consists of thirteen episodes and it was released on April 11, 2015.

During the events of the Hades Arc, the gold saints sacrificed their lives to destroy the Wall of Grief that kept Seiya and his friends from reaching the Elysian Fields. Following these events, Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold starts with the reincarnation of the Gold Saints in the lands of Asgard, where they have to face a new and dangerous foe.

Saint Seiya: Soldier’s Soul is the first video game to feature the gold saints with their respective God Cloths. This game was released for the PS3, PS4 and PC in Japan and Europe on April 12, 2015; subsequently, it was commercialized in North America on October 6, 2015.

Saint Seiya: Soldier’s Soul is an updated version of Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers. This new installment is a fighting game that features more playable characters, a longer story mode and better graphics.
This release has an improved Combat System that:
increases the game's speed
gives every character a new projectile called a Photon
includes more air combos

Moreover, the special attacks (called Big Bang attacks) are easier to land and they also have better animations and effects.
Another improvement is that different costumes can be selected as alternate outfits for the same soldier, and not as different characters (as in the previous installment). Besides, it’s the first Saint Seiya video game that includes the God Warriors , as well as the bronze and gold God Cloths.
