If you are a fan of Bleach and mobile gaming, then it is time you started crossing your fingers. Following the release of Bleach Brave Souls, the anime is set to get yet another mobile game thanks to a Chinese tech company known as Ourpalm.
The company, which shares a headquarter in Tokyo, has decided to distribute a new mobile game based on Bleach. So far, there are only plans to debut the game in China, but Ourpalm has in the past brought its more popular titles to English and Japanese audiences. Right now, the game is said to be about a year out.
This will not be the only anime-inspired mobile game that Ourpalm is working on. In coordination with Glee, the company will be rolling out a game based on the popular anime One-Punch Man. The app will be available to play in Japan and China, but fans are already petitioning for the game to be brought to the U.S.
If you are not familiar with previous Bleach mobile titles, then you may want to grab your phone and clear some space. Last year, Bleach Brave Souls made its debut in the U.S. and has continued to draw in users. Created by KLabGames, the game earns a reported $8,400 daily from iPhones users in America alone. As for downloads, the app is installed on average 8,300 times per day - and that’s not even factoring in Android or Google Play usage.
You can check out a description of Bleach Brave Souls below:
“RELIVE THE BLEACH STORY - Follow the Bleach story from the moment Rukia and Ichigo first meet. Develop your characters as you complete quests that recreate pivotal scenes from the story.”
Complete with customization options, Bleach Brave Souls allows players to battle others in a multiplayer mode and even develop their characters’ stats. The team-building game utilized a party of three players and even features special 3D moves which are voiced by original Japanese voice actors.
If you are not familiar with Bleach, then you can always take time to catch-up. Created by Tite Kubo, the manga was first published in 2001 by Weekly Shōnen Jump. Since its release, Bleach has become one of the most popular mangas in history as it still ranks as a best-selling series in both Japan and the U.S. Bleach has sold over 84 million copies in Japan alone, and the series has gone on to spawn spin-off media with its popular anime, video games, films, musicals, and tons of licensed merchandise.
