Red Sun Gamer Episode 1 – The First 30 Minutes Of Bleach: Soul Resurrección

By Red Sun Gamer . June 29, 2011 . 3:31pm

Calling all Bleach (and Dynasty Warriors n’ Sengoku Basara?) fans, the guys from Red Sun Gamer, Martin & Steve, have put together a video of the first 30 minutes of Bleach: Soul Resurrección out for the PS3 – replete with game mechanics commentary and on-the-spot translation. The video highlights the story mode gameplay of the first two playable characters, Ichigo Kurosaki and Uryuu Ishida, and introduces the grid-based ability unlocking system for leveling up the huge roster of playable characters, enemy bosses included.


This is Martin and Steve’s debut collaboration video with Siliconera. More quick looks from Red Sun Gamer of other Japanese games are in the works!


Bleach: Soul Resurrección is expected to hit North America on August 2, and Europe in September. NIS America’s localized version will feature both English and Japanese voiceovers.

    Ranbu no Melody!!!!!

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Noo, why did he canceled the opening!? I wish these guys knew a bit more about the anime/manga before setting up and play this but eh…

    Anyway, the game looks pretty entertaining.

    • The opening is hawt, I love that song! 

      • Crimson_Cloud

        Same here, awesome song indeed.

      • DanteJones

        Ranbu no Melody (the one in the video) and Last Moment are awesome, I agree. :D

    • DJmizuhara

      For the next Episode I’ll include the full opening just for you. ;)

  • Arcm

    I preordered it on NISA’s store earlier today I cannot wait. : )

    • NISA Store doesn’t charge you until your order ships right?

  • epiphaniesarefun

    I really liked this :)  I’m looking forward to more!

  • Genjo

    wow thanks for 30 mins showing how the game is like hope you guys do more something like this it would give viewers more feel what those juicy games are like XD

  • Suicunesol

    I wish they showed a battle with an actual arrancar. >_>

    …it looks entertaining. Though I feel like the crowds of enemies aren’t dense enough.

    Co-op would be great for this game too.

  • eilegz

    FF X sphere grid?

  • PrinceHeir

    this looks ace :P

    sadly im not a fan of the franchise though :P

  • DanteJones

    Hey guys, thanks for this video walkthrough of the game! It looks amazing and I’ll definitely be picking this up when it comes out, I love Bleach. :D

  • Mister_Nep

    Wow RSG is working with you guys? I’ve been listening to their podcast from the very beginning.

    Well I must say it’s a perfect fit for both sides. Just wonder if Martin will behave throughout the videos though. He can tangent into NSFW topics from time to time.

    Glad to see RSG on the site. I’ll definitely look forward to future collaborations.

    • DJmizuhara

      lmao…thanks Mister Nep… I’ll be on my best behaviour during the videos don’t worry about that, I know when to switch it off. ;)

    • DJmizuhara

      lmao…thanks Mister Nep… I’ll be on my best behaviour during the videos don’t worry about that, I know when to switch it off. ;)

  • jugun

    Looks boss 

  • At first I thought I wanted this game. Nevermind! Should have been a fighter instead.

  • Cant wait for this game, the video makes me want it even more. Kinda glad it’s something besides another fighter, the franchise is flooded with them. Still gonna call it “Soul Resurrection” like on the commercial, I’m no good with Spanish accents,lol.

  • DJmizuhara

    Red Sun Gamer will post Episode 2 of Bleach highlighting the other in-game characters various environments as well as Boss characters too, stayed tuned.

  • I was hyped for this game, but i wish it had been a fighter. I wonder why someone doesn’t make a One Piece fighter that plays like storm. That would be interesting

  • Thanks for all the encouraging comments gents. I’m a latecomer to the Bleach world. In fact, if bleached white is the highest belt color then that would make me a black belt noob. Looking forward to doing our next Bleach roster romp intro video!

    Sorry, but I’m gonna have to disagree with people who think this looks good.  It looks so EMPTY and bland, and the fighting system looks less interesting than your average Dynasty Warriors style hack and slash.  I guess this is for people who love simplistic musou games or don’t care what they’re playing as long as it’s attached to a Bleach license.  I’m glad to see this in depth video though, to show me what this game is all about instead of having some blind faith in NISA like I might otherwise have done. 

    I’m certainly voting with my wallet on this one and NOT buying this game, in the hopes that NISA doesn’t get any ideas that they should move away from their bread and butter RPGs.  Leave the licensed anime action games to someone else (and heck, even in that often criticized category, Gundam Musou 3 looks tons more entertaining than this).
