    Bleach dark souls is a very fun fighter for the ds, there are alot of great characters and alot of your favorite bankais are in here even ikkaku's bankai, story takes place right after the events of saving rukia and is basically like a filler in the series, this game feels great, fighting is tight very responsive, character roster is very large, a very flushed out story mode, arcade mode,Bleach dark souls is a very fun fighter for the ds, there are alot of great characters and alot of your favorite bankais are in here even ikkaku's bankai, story takes place right after the events of saving rukia and is basically like a filler in the series, this game feels great, fighting is tight very responsive, character roster is very large, a very flushed out story mode, arcade mode, survival mode, versus the only negatives i have to say this game has is the inclusion of worthless characters, you can play as a nurse and a random soul reaper who throws rocks and little hollows who serve no purpose, there are sometimes slowdowns when you fight with four people on the screen only happened in the final fight, but other than that a great game and worth owning !

  1. 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.

    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]

    Bleach: Dark Souls may feel late to the party for those of you that import, or keep a keen eye on the Japanese gaming scene (even if you don't directly participate), but despite the gigantic gap between Bleach Japanese and US releases, there's still no denying that Dark Souls is one of the best pocket fighters out there, and a seriously impressive package on DS.
