Out of nowhere video game publisher NIS America has confirmed they will be bringing Bleach: Soul Ignition to North America as Bleach: Soul Resurreccion this August!! Check out the press release and trailer below!
NIS America, Inc. is proud to reveal today the summer 2011 release of Bleach: Soul Resurrección, a heart-pounding action game for the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) computer entertainment system . The new game is based on the popular animated BLEACH series from VIZ Media, and is the first BLEACH game for the PS3™ platform. “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.” “BLEACH is one of the most popular anime and manga properties to ever be released in North America, and the new Bleach: Soul Resurrección video game incorporates many familiar characters and storylines from the series,” says Aadil Tayouga, VIZ Media Licensing and Brand Analyst. “We look forward to the success of this new release and to working closely with NIS America as they add an exciting new dimension to this celebrated property.”
Based on the popular manga/anime series, Bleach: Soul Resurrección depicts the battle between the Soul Reapers and the army of evil Arrancars that threaten the peace of the world. Bleach: Soul Resurrección gives players the sensation of single-handedly destroying an army of monsters and evil spirits with lightning-fast swordfighting action. Gamers can re-live the experiences of various characters from the anime by closely following the original story. The environments are faithfully reproduced with beautiful cel-shaded 3D models that will satisfy even the most devoted fans. Bleach: Soul Resurrección will give gamers an unparalleled anime action game experience.
