The news that a new video game is being made for the well-known supernatural sword-fighting anime Bleach comes right after the release of the upcoming season of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War. The game looks very magnificent and action-packed.
A 3D-action role-playing game called Bleach: Soul Resonance has elements of both the upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash and the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series. The game’s website claims that players will engage in strategic battles with “familiar faces on a battlefield full of blades” and a “low-latency combat experience with weapons and swords.”
Bleach: Soul Resurrección for the PlayStation 3 was the last Bleach video game to be released in the United States (apart from Bandai Namco’s delisted Shonen Jump crossover title Jump Force). The ongoing project Bleach: Soul Resonance is being published by Nuverse (Marvel Snap). Below is a trailer for Bleach: Soul Resonance’s announcement.
Contrary to Naruto, one of the other “big three anime” series, Bleach hasn’t had a particularly long run of officially licensed video games that connect with fans in the same way as the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series. However, the early cutscene and gameplay footage featured in the announcement trailer for Bleach: Soul Resonance appears to change that.
Will This Be the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm of Bleach Games?
Bleach: Soul Resonance appears to be following the anime’s Soul Society and Hueco Mundo arcs—its first two main storylines—aside from having quite tidy-looking 3D renderings of the titular characters. In order to save his kidnapped pals Rukia and Orihime, the story’s protagonist Ichigo Kurosaki goes to war with the entire Soul Society and Arrancars.
Early gameplay footage from Bleach: Soul Resonance recreates legendary scenes from Ichigo’s grueling battles against the bloodthirsty Kenpachi Zaraki and the stoic Byakuya Kuchiki, perfectly mimicking the anime’s big-fight vibe. Despite coming from a pre-release version of the game, both gameplay clips seem to have a lot of potential.
Even Ichigo’s catchy theme song “Number One” by Shiro Sagisu and Hazel Fernandez can be heard in the trailer, which is a wonderful touch to get viewers pumped for some action. We’ll have to wait and see if Bleach: Soul Resonance will finally give the adored anime series the treatment of Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm or if it’ll be just another poorly developed licensed video game.
