Coming stateside in Portuguese, apparently.

Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle may be coming to North America, if the ESRB are anything to go by. The organization recently assigned a “Teen” rating to the game.

For some reason, though, the game has retained its Portuguese title (Os Cavaleiros do Zodíaco: Batalha do Santuário). And [some of?] its dialogue, too.

Here’s the ESRB’s description:

This is an action-adventure game based on characters from the Knights of the Zodiac comic book/TV show franchise. Players assume the role of mystical warriors who punch, kick, and use magical attacks to defeat human-like enemies (e.g., soldiers, demons); extra points are awarded for multiple attack combos. Battles are accompanied by slashing sounds, shockwave effects, and colorful explosions; damage is indicated by depleting health meters. A few cutscenes depict additional acts of violence (e.g., characters impaled by rose stems and arrows). Portuguese translations of the words “damn” and “a*s” (e.g., “Drogo! Nem consigo arranhar!” and “Vim te dar uma surra!”) can be heard in the dialogue.

Saint Seiya: Sanctuary Battle has already come out in Japan and Europe.

We’ve mailed Namco Bandai for comment.

    Hopefully it comes to the USA.

    I think it’s because this game will be released in Brazil next month. It’s the only Region 1 release so far. And Portuguese in this case is Brazilian Portuguese.
