Delisting

Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers was last confirmed available on PlayStation 3 in Europe on July 13th, 2016 and in North America on September 26th, 2016. The game was on sale in each territory through the respective dates and was likely delisted shortly after or before the end of 2016. However, it was not confirmed delisted until December 13th, 2017 when an anonymous tip was provided to Delisted Games.

Brave Soldiers was superseded by Soldiers’ Soul in 2015 which remains available digitally in all territories. Both games were published by Bandai Namco suggesting one of two possibilities for the delisting. One, that Brave Soldiers was under a specialized license that expired in 2016 or two, that the publisher chose not to keep it available digitally due to its middling reception.

Saint Seiya: Brave Soldiers remains available to download only in Japan and on physical media in Europe, Japan, Asia, South Korea, and South America. As of December 2017 Amazon still offers download codes for the North American version at $49.99. Play-Asia also offers several physical versions of the game.
