Anime and gaming meet more than frequently, especially if you’re a fan of the Japanese style of game design, but NIS America is going a step further and including a PSN download of three episodes of Bleach (190-192) with all pre-orders of Bleach: Soul Resurrection. These episodes won’t come on a physical disc, but will instead be downloaded via the PSN, so I hope you have some room left on your hard drive. Still, I hear the show is pretty great, although I haven’t seen it myself.
What’s even more impressive, yet not surprising if you know how NISA works, is that the game will include dual-audio; both the English and Japanese spoken dialog will be available, with English subtitles. It’s always nice to see that option – always. And, frankly, with the PS3, there’s no excuse not to have it, even if the game is multi-plat. Sorry, I’m taking a stab at another highly-anticipated, quirky Japanese title hitting shelves next week. I’ll stop. Good news is that we won’t have that problem with Bleach: Soul Resurrection!
