J-Stars Victory VS – Saint Seiya, D.Gray-man Join the Battle

Posted on December 25, 2013

A new J-Stars Victory VS scan has been revealed today, with characters from Saint Seiya and D.Gray-man getting ready to join the battle! Specifically, it’s Pegasus Seiya from Masami Kurumada’s Saint Seiya as a playable character and Allen Walker from Katsura Hoshino’s D.Gray-man as a support character. Seiya will fight with his Pegasus Meteor Fist attack, while Allen will have his clawed left hand. This brings the total playable list of J-Stars Victory VS Characters to 23 and support to 10.

More characters are of course coming in the future. The magazine teases one of the villains from Hunter x Hunter, Hisoka, will be in the game in some shape or form. At least, there is a silhouette of him towards the bottom left of the scan, with a reveal of some sorts coming around the January 21st time frame.
