Brave Soldiers is a fighting game featuring over 50 characters from the Saint Seiya manga. The super gauge in the game is referred to as the Cosmo Gauge (小宇宙ゲージ Kosumo Gēji?), which characters use to perform their finishing attacks, Burst Dash (バーストダッシュ Bāsuto Dasshu?), Burst Attack (バースト攻撃 Bāsuto Kōgeki?), Seven Senses Awakening (セブンセンシズ覚醒 Sebun Senshizu Kakusei?), and their special Big Bang Attacks (ビッグバンアタック Bigu Ban Atakku?). A character's strength can be increased through the use of an Orb (オーブ Ōbu?). The Saint Chronicle (セイントクロニクル Seinto Kuronikuru?) game mode has the player progress through battles based on the three main arcs of the original manga: the Sanctuary arc, the Poseidon arc, and the Hades arc. Also in the game is the Galaxian Wars (ギャラクシアンウォーズ Gyarakushian Wōzu?) mode, a tournament mode.
