Blade Battlers hits the Web

Sony gives the four-player PS2 fighting game its own publicity page; confirms a handful of characters.

Sony Computer Entertainment has posted an official Bleach: Blade Battlers Web site that gives some preliminary details of the game, according to Game Iroiro. Bleach: Blade Battlers is a fighting game based on the popular manga penned by Tite Kubo and serialized in manga magazine Shonen Jump; naturally, the game will draw on the manga and anime for its characters and settings. According to the official site, the game supports up to four players onscreen at once--the confirmed characters so far being Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Kuchiki, Orihime Inoue, Yasutora Sado, and Uryū Ishida.

Finally, hope for a good PS2 Bleach game. The other two were straight up ass. The only good one was for the DS but that was made by Treasure, who are gods, so here's hoping.

I hope they put yourichi or Soi Fon and it should have a wide selection of characters including all of the 13 captains and vice captains including aizen so i can wipe that smug look of his face as i hit him with either flash release or Ichigos or renjis Bankai I dont remember their names cause its japanese but any way COME OUT SOON i need Bleach - iness and ive seen all the episodes so far ; need Bleach(yourichi is hot)

First off this isn't old it just got annouced 2 days ago and I was the one to find it (go see on the Heat the Soul 3 board) and second the Wii version (like all Bleach games on Nintendo systesm) is made by Sega and will be WAY different, but since I haven't heard good thing about fighters on thw Wii I hope this most likely last PS2 installment is great

This is one of the few anime/manga adapatation's that has hope to be good, since the developer has 1st party "suits" poking at them with the "make it somewhat good so it sells to both fans and non fans alike" stick. US release? Doubtful would have been covered at e3 in some shape or form.
