Girl (or boy) troubles, acne, peer pressure, not being able to get served cider down the local off license, strange things happening to your body... you thought you had it bad back in the tough old days of puberty, right? Well, looking at Ichigo Kurosaki, your teenage days were a sunny walk along the riverside. Imagine throwing in dealing with otherworldly nastiness and the ongoing battle between good and evil too.
Such is the world of Bleach. Blessed or cursed (depending on your feelings on this sort of thing) with the ability to see spirits from the afterlife, 15 year old Ichigo spends a lot of time being able to see Soul Reapers. These helpful chaps defend us from other 'not of this world' creatures called Hollows. When Ichigo stumbles across Rukia, a wounded Soul Reaper, he must take on her fight against the bad guys.
Players will use the Wii Remote to hack and slash their way through the hordes of evil. You'll find the high powered weapons and super attacks you'd expect to find in the animated series, along with 32 characters to get to grips with.
You'll also get the chance to engage in a fast and furious multiplayer mode in 3D arenas lifted straight from the series.
If nothing else, Bleach ought to make you feel a bit better about your own days of angst and self doubt...
