The Bronze Knights have been summoned to a war more terrible than anything they have yet encountered: a war against Knighthood itself!
Seiya, too, is called to action. Now he and his fellow Bronze Knights must decide, once and for all, whether to join Princess Sienna in her rebellion against Sanctuary, the headquarters of Knighthood. But the Master of Sanctuary is waiting for them. If Seiya and his friends ever want to find peace again, they must pass through the 12 palaces of the legendary Gold Knights...and defeat them all!
