Bleach: Paradise Lost is a mobile title for iOS and Android that takes certain gameplay mechanics from games like Pokemon GO. The game is being described as a "Bankai 3D tap RPG", which will overlay Bleach's world overtop ours. Like the Pokemon in GO, the Hollow will randomly appear in the real world, and it will be up to players to become a Shinigami and defend their portion of the city from being destroyed.
The free to play game will feature turn-based 3D combat, allowing players to access special abilities that stem from the series. The game will take place in Karakura Town and the Soul Society, and is expected to hit Japan later this year.
Bleach: Paradise Lost is based on the original Bleach manga by illustrator Tite Kubo. The manga ran in Shonen Jump from 2001 to 2016 and since has inspired a number of video game adaptations. Bleach has also been adapted into a television series and several animated films, with a live-action adaptation in the works as well.
For those unfamiliar with the series, Bleach follows the adventures of high school student Ichigo Kurosaki, who one day meets a Shinigami named Rukia Kuchiki in his bedroom. Most are unable to see her or the world of the hollows, dark spirits who roam the world and attempt to engulf lost souls. Kurosaki ends up taking most of her powers after she saves his life, and takes over for her as a Shinigami while she recovers, setting off an epic adventure that blends high-octane action with the world of the supernatural.
