    So in other words, slow news bout this game huh? Time to start stating the obvious. Next headline: goku’s gi is orange!

    • Bobby Jennings

      It’s not Namco but Siliconera D:

  • SuBw00FeR

    Shhh, more screens are good!

  • Tsuna Plz.

    • British_Otaku

      I think he’s pretty safe…
      Kazuki Muto is a whole ‘nother thing with a short franchise, cancelled early I hear (even if the anime and manga go for the usual 10 volumes/26 episode length with some decent closure) and unlike YYH and HxH, it wasn’t announced side by side with Kenshin.

      • IsaacGravity

        Busou Renkin was still a great trip though. Definitely hoping for some Kazuki action. Ageha from Psyren (another short and cancelled early series) too.

        Also hoping for Kinnikuman, Yoh, Nube, Kenshiro, a Joestar (preferably Johnathan as he’s my favorite but Jotaro is a more likely), Train and Seiya.

        EDIT: Also forgot Oga w/ Baby Beel. How could I forget those guys?!

  • leingod

    Well, I remember Ichigo was pretty cool for a while…

    • Freud_Hater

      Yep. Back then…

    • I still find him cool. Not at much as he used to, but still cool

  • fyi1191

    This is probably the best Ichigo form. The rest are vanilla-choclate-strawberry milkshake.

  • Looking at the Namek stage, it just feels like the Ultimate Tenkaichi environmental physics engine will play a role in this game.

    • British_Otaku

      Ultimate Tenkaichi didn’t really have “environmental destruction” as much as set pieces to be damaged in a very set way, after following the rock paper scissors script of the game. >_>

      The whole game functioned in a very inorganic way to the point where this will be more comparable to any real time game with a few destructible parts (Storm? Clash of Ninja? Tenkaichi? Raging Blast? Valkyria Chronicles? List goes on?) or a texture for smashing.

  • anthony apduhan

    Needs Tsuna, Yugi, Hiruma Youichi, Vegeta, Sasuke, Kaiba and etc.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    watch out Ichigo powers turns into who ever he fights………

    Ichigo: Truns out I’m a saiyan that ate some devil fruit and had a fox demon sealed in me when I was a baby

    • GameTaco

      “And that’s how I got my soul reaper powers back this time.”


      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        Kon: “you forgot! you are also the king of games, a hit man, has unknown Buso Renkin powers, Japanse foot ball player, a Hunter….ahh am I forgetting something?”

        Me:” God*

        • 657rod

          A demon that eats mysteries(Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro), and has 2 take care of the son of the king of hell(Beelzebub)

        • konsama

          I never said that!

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            >__< I see what you did there

    • Spirit Macardi

      And thanks to his voice actor, he’s also a Power Ranger x3

  • Michael Connell

    Anyone besides me more interested in seeing Ichigo and (Future) Trunks fight?

  • Minos


    Don’t these guys read the Manga?

    This is not his Zanpakuto.

    • British_Otaku

      It doesn’t matter.

      When we have a video game crossover based on half a dozen ongoing works, chances are one of them may have a current plot where the lead character is a baby (Medaka Box did this for a period – Bleach changes Ichigo’s sword like most women change clothes), you don’t pick the character state with less presence in the public eye and less moves shown off when you can pick the default we have seen for like a decade or something.
      The big forms and moves which showed up a few chapters or episodes ago will be lucky to make it in.

    • Christopher

      I read the title, and thought “hmm…I wonder how long till someone says it is not his Zanpakuto…”
      I honestly thought there would be more. XD

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      Oh that twist confused me more than CLAMP with Tsubasa.

  • Rini11

    Where is Urameshi and Gon?This doesnt look like it is gonna have Koma support:(

    • British_Otaku

      This seems to be images from an announcement focused on Ichigo.
      We will get our trailers or extended footage of your favourite in due time.

  • TheExile285

    I hope they will let him use his hollow powers in this.

    Final getsugatensho would be nice too but probably unlikely.

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      Yes the Hollow mask is sweet. I sometimes feel they used it for little time similar to Venom in Spiderman 3.

  • Byron Kerrison II

    I wanna see Urameshi’s Spirit Gun vs Goku’s Kamehameha.

  • 657rod

    (Waits for the hollow mask).

  • Kevin Schwarz

    I will be truly interested in import if they add characters from Medaka Box, Saint Seiya, D.Gray-man and Black Cat.
