RPG mobile game Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac will be getting two new festive updates as a part of Christmas celebrations, confirmed by the publishers of the game, YOOZOO Games. The announcement was made official about the two Christmas updates which will be coming to the game on December 16th and 23rd, 2020.
Christmas Updates overview
The upcoming updates to the game will bring the new Surplice Shion character, increased Underworld character summon rates, a Christmas-themed PvP mode and a brand new PvE mode called the Swim Club Ghost Story. Details of the same are given below.
1. New Character Surplice Shion
The former Grand Pope and Gold Saint of Aries are coming to the game for the first time on December 23rd. Surplice Shion was among the most powerful of Athena’s Gold Saints and has now been resurrected by Hades, the God of the Underworld. The upcoming Surplice Shion Summon will be open for a limited time, featuring double summon rates for the former Grand Pope.
From 16th to 23rd December, Surplice Shion will be available to all players in the Sacred Duel mode for a limited trial. Other Underworld characters such as Hades, Thanatos, Hypnos, Rhadamanthys, Minos, and Aiacos will all join the Legendary Summon.
2. Swim Club Horror Story
Another highlight of this Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac Christmas Update is The Swim Club of the Sanctuary Training Academy, which is taking a trip to the seaside and staying in an old castle for the night. When the night falls, however, something mysterious is bound to happen. Players can complete challenges in the new PvE mode Swim Club Ghost Story to escape from the castle. This new mode triggers random events every time the player makes a move, allowing them to choose from a set of skill cards and bring their own card deck. Completion of the event will also earn you unique rewards.
3. PvP Melee and Festive UI
Starting from December 16th, The PVP Melee will return with a festive Christmas theme. Besides, the game UI and the log-in screen will get a festive skin to celebrate the Christmas mood, and the update will also bring Fruits of Strife, a new Star Cosmo, and a new Saint Cloth – Poseidon’s Scale. Get ready to collect the items and unleash their power.
Brand new in-game items will also be available in the store, including a new Cosmo Fruits of Strife, a new Saint Cloth Scale of SS Poseidon, and a Season 1 Companion Gift. Along with all these, the game UI and interface will get a Christmas overhaul.
