imageJump has new details about Bleach: Soul Ignition, Sony’s upcoming Bleach game for PlayStation 3. Players will be able to customize characters using the Soul Orb system, which should look familiar if you played Final Fantasy X. The system has players move on a board and capture orbs to strengthen their characters.


Speaking of characters rivals Coyote Starrk and Shunsui Kyoraku are confirmed as playable characters in Bleach: Soul Ignition. Coyote is ready to strike in his second form. Shunsui, armed with the Katen Kyokotsu, has an original technique made just for the PS3 game.


Bleach: Soul Ignition is scheduled to come out sometime this year.

  • Not another game with the Sphere Grid, it was only good in FF-X.

    • godmars

      Not even then by all counts if memory servers.

      • Nah it was awesome in FFX because it was simple to use but it was rewarding. Unlike FFXIII were it became to pretentious and limiting.

        I actually like the fact Soul Ignition uses this system since it gives the game an illusion of depth. Now if only the stages were to be more pacier then what we’ve seen via gameplay videos.

    I’m really looking forward to this, I wonder how they’ll handle the last fight and how many of the little fights they’ll skip.

  • Bakuryukun

    Neat, I liked the Sphere Grid, and I like Bleach. This is a-okay with me.

  • Well I guess of course Shunsui would have an original move made for the game…Kubo never revealed a bankai for him, lol. Anyway, this game has gotta come out in CONUS, I must have it, I love Bleach to death and this game sounds just as good as Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm. I hope SONY brings it to us, please! (And Stark, I guess that means Lilynette is in it too, I love their JPN voice actors)

    • Ren

      Only on the sequel. They will also probably put a battle relevant costume system.

  • We need Don Kanonji!

    • BWAHAHAHAH! That would be interesting (with the Karakura Superheroes, Jinta, zomg!)

    • Yu_TheKing

      Yesh, The spirits are always WITH YOU! ;D

  • Im not looking forward into this game. Bleach is overall crappy series and i don’t reccomend it to anyone. It’s not worth of watching.

    • Yu_TheKing

      … Seriously?

    • Well excuse me. Bleach is phenomenally epically awesome in my opinion, and in others it certainly does have its moments.

    • then why are you here retard

    • This game will be good

    • Bleach is a great series ever made, it has all different foes and allies along with new skills and attack. Plus the characters are cool and its really good. The story line is great and its not childest like other animes.

  • FFX

  • I cant wait till this game comes out it keeps geting better and better
