Bleach: Dark Souls, known in Japan as Bleach DS 2nd Kokui Hirameku Requiem (BLEACH DS 2nd 黒衣ひらめく鎮魂歌(レクイエム)?, lit. "Bleach DS 2nd: The Black-clothed Flickering Requiem") is the second Bleach game for the Nintendo DS. The game introduces new characters, adds new moves for the older characters as well as introduces new game modes. Bleach: Dark Souls also includes Hollows of varying sizes, for players to fight. The number of Reifu cards in-game are also increased from the original, and more cards (four cards, instead of the previous game's two) will be displayed on the touch screen during battle. The Wi-Fi battle mode has been improved to make it easier to play online.[1][2] The game's theme song is "Resistance" by High and Mighty Color.
