Two new characters have been revealed as playable in Bandai Namco's anime/manga crossover fighting title, Jump Force. Pegasus Seiya and Dragon Shiryu from Saint Seiya enter the ring.

Known as The Knights of the Zodiac in the west, the characters in this series fight representing a constellation or Zodiac sign. Pegasus Seiya is the main character of Saint Sieya, and he battles as the Pegasus — he's the character in the trailer utilizing the blue energy.

Dragon Shiryu, as you might imagine, harnesses the Dragon Constellation. The Saint Seiya series follows five warriors called "Saints" that each represent different constellations, so it's possible that we could see more characters from this series in Jump Force.

In the new Jump Force trailer, we see Pegasus Seiya and Dragon Shiryu performing numerous large, flashy attacks in battle, including firing a giant arrow, attacking with a huge energy sword, and even armor power ups.

Seiya and Shiryu join the likes of characters such as Dragon Ball Z's Goku, Vegeta, and Frieza, One Piece's Monkey D. Luffy and Blackbeard, Naruto's Sasuke Uchiha and Naruto Uzumaki, and more. Most recently, we saw Yugi Moto of Yu-Gi-Oh! announced and Bandai Namco released the first gameplay of the character last week.

Jump Force is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in February 2019.
