SEGA pours more Bleach onto DS

The 3rd Phantom here next year.

SEGA has announced another adaptation of Japanese anime Bleach for DS, although strategy RPG will be the genre, rather than fighting, and the author and creator of the cartoon, Tite Kubo, will supervise.

He'll help create Bleach: The 3rd Phantom's entirely new and exclusive storyline, which has both familiar and never-before-seen characters you can chat to using an interactive dialogue system.

Experience from fighting - that old RPG staple - also features, as do upgradable abilities and powers. Bleach: The 3rd Phantom requires a mixture of these to overcome different situations. The main characters the Soul Reaper twins, for example, take different approaches but can combine to unleash ultimate moves.

You'll explore an isometric world but fight in 2D. And two friends can fight each other using Wi-Fi.

Bleach: The 3rd Phantom is due for release early next year. Head over to our gallery for the first screenshots.
