Bleach: Soul Resurreccion coming to PlayStation 3

Bleach fans finally get a true next-generation gaming treat

While video games for hit titles Naruto and Dragon Ball Z have fared well on recent gaming systems there is another equally solid and stylish anime which has failed to receive the gaming love its fans deserve. Bleach is the title and while it’s been seen on Nintendo Wii in a ni-fu, ni-fa experience and on DS in older-school RPG and fighting game formats it’s still lacking in that solid, next generation experience.

Bleach: Soul Resurrección will hit PlayStation 3 this August and will be published by NIS America. Tite Kubo’s manga and anime follows the character Ichigo Kurosaki as he becomes a Soul Reaper (deputy actually) and the battles that follow with lost souls called Hollows and their various forms. There is a ton of back-story already laid out and Resurrección takes up well into the storyline where battles rage against the Arrancars (top level, advanced Hollows folks). Fans will know exactly what this means but for gamer’s familiar with Naruto and Dragon Ball Z, you can expect a very stylish action oriented gaming experience that’s heavy on story, contains an amazing anime look, signature moves and voices from the anime as well as 21 characters from the anime/manga. It’s an action-adventure title with story and mission modes and some leveling up chances through a character map.

More to come as the title was just recently announced so check back for more. From these early screenshots and the trailer (found on Resurrección site) Ichigo looks to be getting a solid PS3 outing. For fans, we can only hope this is true.
