Bleach: The Blade of Fate on the DS brings a couple of twists to the traditional fighting game, by bringing the action to both screens and allowing up to 4 players in combat. In addition to battling on the top screen, gamers also build a Spirit card deck, which the user can access to cast status changes on themselves or their opponents in the bottom screen. Wi-Fi capabilities allows 4 players to battle each other at the same time. With a burgeoning cast of 28 characters, gamers can spend hours experiencing furious fighting gameplay, and unlocking personal character stories, all based on the series story arc.
Based on the popular animated series Bleach, The Blade of Fate features an awesome cast of more than 20 characters, including Rukia, Kon and Ichigo, all voiced by the actors from the TV show. The Blade of Fate adds a twist to the traditional 2D fighting game with a new battle system that lets you venture between upper and lower split-plane battle arenas. You can also build Spirit Card Decks to strategically access powerups that perform special attacks, cast healing spells, displace opponents or stop them from using their own Spirit Cards. Up to four players can take to the streets to fight enemies in wild combat via the Wi-Fi capabilities of the Nintendo DS.
