The Bleach Nintendo Home Consoles series is a series of fighting games based on the anime and manga Bleach and published by Sega. Three games were released, one for the GameCube and two for the Wii.


Bleach GC: Tasogare ni Mamieru Shinigami

Bleach GC Tasogare ni Mamieru Shinigami (BLEACH GC 黄昏にまみえる死神?, lit. Bleach GC: Soul Reapers Meeting in the Twilight) is the first installment in the Bleach Nintendo Home Consoles series. The game was released only in Japan on December 8, 2005. It features gameplay similar to the Power Stone series, and traditional 2D fighting games.


Bleach: Shattered Blade

Bleach: Shattered Blade, originally published as Bleach Wii: The Naked Blade's Glistening Rondo (BLEACH Wii 白刃きらめく輪舞曲(ロンド) Bleach Wii Hakujin Kirameku Rondo?) in Japan, is the second installment in the Bleach Nintendo Home Consoles series and currently the only installment to be released outside of Japan. The game was released in Japan on December 14, 2006[1] and in North America on October 9, 2007,[1] with a European release planned on February 29, 2008 and Australia's release was on the 28th of February 2008. Although the anime outside Japan has not yet reached this point in the series, the game will be a direct port of the Japanese version for American and European consumers, similar to the US release of the game.

A new character has been designed specifically for this game, an arrancar named Arturo Plateado (アルトゥロ・プラチアド Aruturo Purachiado?, literally Silver Arthur in Spanish). This character's appearance is similar to that of Grimmjow Jeagerjaques', though Arturo's hair and hollow remains, which also take the form of half a jaw bone like Grimmjow's, are fairly longer. Unlike most other arrancar, Arturo was self-made. Arturo can also disguise himself as anything from Gotei 13 captains to zanpakutō spirits. He once raided the Soul Society, but was sealed beneath Sōkyoku Hill by the Soul Reapers 2000 years prior to the start of Bleach. When the Sōkyoku was destroyed during Ichigo Kurosaki's rescue of Rukia Kuchiki, the seal placed on Arturo was broken and he was freed. The game has so far received mediocre reviews. GameSpot gave it a 3.5 score. IGN gave the game a 6.3 out of 10.

Bleach: Versus Crusade

Bleach: Versus Crusade for the Wii was released in Japan on December 18, 2008 and developed by Treasure Co. Ltd. Scans depict a roster of characters in line with the manga storyline. The gameplay has been changed substantially from its predecessors featuring battles in a three-dimensional battle field. The game supports online play through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Visitors to the official website were allowed to vote for which two characters they wanted on the cover of the game; the winning pair was Ichigo and Rukia.[2]
