    This is an SRPG, and a pretty good one really. You get upgrade points each time a character levels up and can apply those points to either further buff their stats or to teach them new active/passive abilities by upgrading their Zanpakuto. It's quite well done and has a 30 level dungeon after you've beaten the main game, with unlockable characters, so there's plenty to do as well.

    We see what you did there, but this one's an SRPG not a fighting game [​IMG]
    Anyway played the US version of this, great game if a bit long-winded with the text.

    There's no 1st and 2nd phantom.
    1st was Souten ni Kakeru Unmei (J) or Blade of Fate (U) & (E) -> fighting
    2nd was Kokui Hirameku Requiem (J) or Dark Souls (U) & (E) -> fighting
    3rd was 3rd Phantom (J), (U) & (E) -> SRPG
    4th was Flame Bringer (J) -> side scroller action

    It's a good game but the designs of the twins are a little on the meh side.

    I don't really like them.

    Is in-depth knowledge of the Bleach universe crucial to enjoying this game? Because I stopped watching the anime long ago, but this looks pretty fun as a game.

    So close and yet so far away.
    I'm wondering pretty much the same thing, plus does it spoil anything if I have watched the anime till about 70the episode with the Bountou?

    It's really a fun game, but it does spoil a litte if you haven't seen the start of the arrancar saga. But they only show two/three important characters, soo...

    But I do recommend watching the start of the Arrancar saga

    I started platying the USA version while still in the Bount arc, when I got to the chapter in game that started showing Arrancars I watched the anime till about episode 122, so I at least knew who the arrancar where.

    And for people who are gonna play this game... ENJOY!

    there is no need at all to know about bleach.

    at least the first few chapters are all even before bleach actually starts, dunno about later on in the game but i think mostly gets more or less good explained.

    i just don't like some translations like Soul Reaper ... this just doesn't sound right ... they should have let it Shinigami or else translate as DeathGod ...

    I agree, Shinigami sounds just sooo much better... But I wasn't that annoyed by it since I undubbed it, so their voices where from the (J) version, that made up for some of translations. (the text said Soul reaper, but the voice said Shinigami xD)

    For people watching the anime with subs, I recommend undubbing it, it is much better!
