It has been revealed today that Sony is working on a videogame adaptation of the manga series –Bleach.
No gameplay details have been etched out at this point, but the premise of the comic itself points firmly at the kind of thing that could sensibly be expected. Conforming to some of the more popular themes within manga, Bleach will carry a full quota of teenagers, demons and crazy weaponry.
The Tite Kubo comic tells the tale of 15 year old Ichigo Kurosaki. He had been going about his usual adolescent activities when one day he bumped into a goddess of death. Naturally, her supernatural powers were immediately transferred to his good self, cursing/blessing him with the ability to see ghosts. The logical course of action, obviously, was to set about finding Hollows (or lost spirits, to the layman) and performing some soul burials. So that, presumably, is the task that will also be laid out in the game.
As soon as any extra details present themselves, more news may follow.
