The latest update also brings two new game modes to Saint Seiya. The first is called The Shrine. In this mode, you will have to complete the trial of the Element. Successfully completing this will net you an SS Cosmo. The second is called The Coffers which will be an opportunity to earn yourself some gold coins.

The final update is a reminder of the upcoming PVP competition. Registration to take part in the Jamir Championship closes this Sunday. So if you fancy yourself as a pretty decent Saint Seiya player, don't forget to register to take part in the 18-day competition. 

If you're unfamiliar with Saint Seiya Awakening, it's an RPG that's based on the popular Manga and Anime. You assemble a team of Saints, through Gacha mechanics, and then take them into battle. Some will synergise better together than others, so it's up to you to find combos that work well for you.

Saint Seiya Awakening is available now on the App Store and Google Play. It is a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
