This is the game you've been waiting for.

The missions in the game are simple to figure out on your own without a guide, but I can't wait until it comes out in America so I can read the cut scenes and have the English voices.
The game keeps all of the original characters from Blade of Fate, but changes some of the moves, and to the boring characters such as Kon and Nemu they've added enough moves to to make them fun to play as from time to time, even if they don't become your favorite characters in the game. On top of all the old characters, they added:
One of my biggest complaints about the first one was that you couldn't play as hallows. But in this one you can play as:
So with all these characters, they've bumped it up to a grand total of 41 characters, all completely unique with character specific special and super attacks.
Along with more characters, they also made the story mode a good bit longer, as well as added quite a challenge to several of the levels.
As far as I can tell so far, the game has all the modes as the original. When completing fights in each mode, you earn money, which you may use in the Urahara Shop to buy Spirit Cards, costumes, event graphics, character graphics, bonus graphics, background music, sound effects, and character voices.
Spirit Cards you buy can be put into your deck, which you use during a fight to give you advantages or put other players at a disadvantage for a certain amount of time. You may have 5 decks.
The one thing I couldn't stand in the first one that they didn't change in this one is the fact that each characters special and super attacks can be preformed either with the right button combinations (quite a lot like Street Fighter) OR by simply taping Sp.A, Sp.B, Sp.C, Sp.D, Sp.E, SuperA, SuperB, SuperC on the touch screen ~ NOTE: this is the most Special and Super attacks any one character can have, most characters have less attacks.
So for some this may come as a disappointment, because the point of a fighting game is learning the moves - but for others this may be a great feature, and it's certainly great for younger gamers.
Sadly, I can't say much about the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Or the single card play. But the multicard play is really fun, me and my brother still play it at least an hour or two a day. This game IS a 'Must Own', no doubt about it. This is the perfect Bleach game, as well as the perfect fighter on the Nintendo DS. Go get it.
