'Jump Force' Roster Update: Pegasus Seiya and Dragon Shiryu from 'Saint Seiya' Join Fighting Game

Pegasus Seiya and Dragon Shiryu from the Saint Seiya series will join Jump Force when the Bandai Namco fighting game debuts in February.

A new gameplay trailer dropped today showcasing Pegasus and Dragon taking on the likes of Frieza, Toguro and Black Beard using cosmic powers. Take a look at the Saint Seiya gameplay trailer in Jump Force below.

For those not familiar, the Saint Seiya series (or Knights of the Zodiac) was a manga published in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1986-1991. An anime adaptation from 1986-1989 follows the protagonist, Pegasus Seiya, who trains to participate in the Galaxian Wars to save his sister. He's joined by four other warriors, and together they become known as the Saints.

The Jump Force trailer shows off a variety of Pegasus' attacks, including an energy wave and the Pegasus Arrow Seiya can launch from a distance.

Dragon Shiryu is another hero from the cast of of Saint Seiya, often the calm one of the group as well as the strongest. Using his Rising Dragon Punch, Shiryu unleashes a devastating uppercut or rising kick to send opponents flying. The new Jump Force trailer even shows Shiryu's Excalibur attack, forming a large blade of cosmic energy on his right arm. This attack can cut through just about anything.

Both Dragon and Pegasus can transform into their Bronze gear (shown in the trailer) that increases their strength and mobility. They join a roster that includes 20 other confirmed fighters. Currently, the roster includes Yugi Muto, Goku, Vegeta, Frieza, Luffy, Naruto, Ichigo, Rukia, Aizen, Sasuke, Sanji, Sabo, Blackbeard, Zolo, Yusuke and Toguro from YuYu Hakusho, Killua, Gon, Kurapika and Hisoka from Hunter x Hunter.

Jump Force is set to release in February for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
