Furthermore, one player of the game, Palantiriel, has created a Saint skin for the game which is being added in the next update. The Galactic Redemption skin of Gemini Kanon is available to anyone who logs into the game between today and 3rd February.

“I have been a fan of Saint Seiya since I was a little kid, when I saw there was a phone game available I knew I had to get it! I decided to participate because it looked like a fun challenge, like an art prompt,” Palantiriel said.

You can download Saint Seiya Awakening from the iOS App Store and Google Play for Android. It’s a free to play title featuring in-app purchases.
