A Specter Of Bleach: The 3rd Phantom Appearing Here


bleach3p Sega went into spin-off mode with the third Bleach game for the Nintendo DS. Bleach: The 3rd Phantom isn’t 2D fighter it’s a strategy RPG with Bleach characters. Will Sega USA take a gamble and bring it to North America?


Signs point to yes! A retail listing at Gamestop says Sega plans to ship Bleach: The 3rd Phantom sometime in September 2009. Sega has not officially announced Bleach: The 3rd Phantom so the date is probably a placeholder, but the timeframe seems logical. A fall release would be a year after Bleach: Dark Souls, the last Bleach game Sega brought us.


When Bleach: The 3rd Phantom came out in Japan we dug into it. Really dug into it. Check out our impressions of tactical Bleach if you missed them.
