Bleach DS 2nd is one of the few good fighter games out there for the DS, too bad there's no English release

Bleach DS 2nd is a very well done game. How so?

Graphics: For a 2d fighter on the ds, this beats Jump Ultimate Stars. The graphics are smooth, vibrant, and truly fitting to the manga and anime. The screenshots on Gamespot don't do it justice; it just looks great in motion.

Some special attacks have videos in between, and I must say, I've never seen any better video quality. There is no pixelation at all. This is like DVD quality on your DS.

Sound: Top notch for the DS. Actually, the game is stored on a 128 megabit rom card, and the only other games that have that are Elite Beat Agents and Hotel Dusk. This means that there is a lot of room made for sound, and this game does not skimp on it.

Gameplay: Well, this is the most important part. The game has a 4 player mode, in which they are on the same field, however the field is divided into a "upper" and "lower" part. You can jump into either part of the field and fight off everyone or play it safer and fight only 1 person while the other two fight it out. Unlike Guilty Gear Dust Strikers, the four player scheme is done superbly.

Initiating combos and specials are a task, especially if you dont know the buttons for A, B, X and Y (for some reason, they use Japanese characters in the command list), however it easily pays off to learn some of them.

Overall, this game is a must have for anyone that wants a good fighter.
