GTarcade, the publisher of popular mobile RPG game Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac, are announcing the return of their 2-day invitational online mobile esports event, the Jamir All Star, that will take place between April 10th and 11th in partnership with Huawei.

In this highly competitive tournament, eight of the world’s best Saint Seiya Awakening PvP players from Europe and Americas will go head to head for a prize of $10,000. The turn-based game that takes inspiration from the popular manga series Saint Seiya has proved extremely popular since its release in 2019 with over 30 million downloads worldwide. Last year’s first Jamir Championship Final livestream saw 350,000 viewers across all streaming platforms.

In Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac, players can relive the epic saga of the manga series and play as their favourite characters called Saints. Every character from the series brings unique skills to the table and a player’s strategy is extremely important when deciding the outcome of a battle against another player. The game has found great popularity in Europe and Latin America and there is a strong PvP community of Saint Seiya Awakening players that hone their strategic skills to compete in top tournaments.

The Jamir All Star, themed Road to Master, will bring together the strongest PvP players for a chance to earn the title of the world’s best Saint Seiya Awakening: KotZ player. Seven matches will be livestreamed in 4 languages, English, French, Spanish and Portuguese, across Facebook, YouTube and Nimo TV. The lineup also features some unseen encounters between highly popular players from Server E (Europe) and Server A (Americas).

The Jamir All Star will also kick off a larger Saint Seiya Awakening: Knights of the Zodiac 2021 esports program. To support existing champions as well as up and coming players, official training camps for esports commentators and players will be available later this year, with more details to be disclosed in fall 2021.

There will also be a number of exciting reveals and announcements for other GTarcade games arriving in 2021.
