Bleach: Soul Resurreccion arrives west this summer

Bleach: Soul Resurreccion, due out in Japan as Bleach: Soul Ignition next month, is coming to North America and Europe by the publishing arm of NIS America.

“There are numerous anime-based video games, but many fall short in gameplay,” says Jack Niida, Producer at NIS America. “Bleach: Soul Resurrección faithfully represents the anime series with its beautiful cel-shaded graphics and combines it with amazing gameplay. The game style is simple enough for action game beginners, yet has enough features to satisfy hardcore players. The game follows the battle against the evil Arrancars, but there are times when you will be able to play as the enemy. This is especially exciting if you follow the manga closely, since you can be characters in the manga that are normally forgotten after being defeated.”

Soul Resurreccion offers playesrs over 21 playable characters, a “massive free-roaming action / adventure game,” cel-shaded graphics, “various game modes” including Story Mode and Mission Mode, and a “customizable character leveling system,” allowing players to unlock status enhancements, special abilities, and more.

It will launch exclusively on PlayStation 3 in August for North America and in September for Europe. A huge batch of screenshots and character art can be seen at the gallery. The debut trailer can be seen below.
