  • Summary: Bleach: Dark Souls on the Nintendo DS brings an exclusive storyline, expanded cast of playable characters and fast multi-plane fighting action for up to four players via Wi-Fi. Players build a power-packed Spirit Card Deck and collect power crystals to augment their spirit card powers on the lower screen and dish out moves that directly affect their opponent's gameplay. With a burgeoning cast of 44 characters including the ability to play as Hollows, players can spend hours experiencing furious fighting gameplay and unlocking personal character stories all based on the series' story arc.

  1. A well rounded game. It had the “hot key” feature that I love for those of us who fail miserably at those button combos. Being able to play all the characters from the previous title plus several key characters from previous seasons of the show is definitely a big plus.
  2. Not just in the fighting genre, this is one of the best games on Nntendo DS, and this is saying a lot if we consider the huge portfolio of the console. We hope the other two Bleach installments currently on the way for Nintendo DS arrive Europe in this way: perfectly translated to Spanish and keeping is fun online mode.
  3. The action-game geniuses at Treasure have managed to make the game both accessible and challenging and add enough story, Spirit Cards, and characters to justify this sequel. [Nov 2008, p.100]
  4. Bleach: Dark Souls improves upon what was already a fantastic game, and belongs in your fighting game collection.
  5. It’s still one of the best fighting games on the DS. While that might not be saying much in that context, it’s still got plenty going for it.
  6. Despite its short story mode, Bleach: Dark Souls is a great Beat 'em up, because of its numerous fighters and a great multiplayer part.
  7. Bleach: Dark Souls is a good fighting game, focusing on the most important aspect: its playability. It might no be revolutionary, but it's a good game considering that it's based on a license.
