Best beat’em up on the DS? Probably. But even better for those who have flirted with the property it’s licensed from. Like me, you might not have read any Bleach before encountering the game - your interest being aroused instead by the pedigree (developers Treasure are responsible for classics across nearly every platform of the last fifteen years). But get to know the characters a little, and it’s even more fun pitting them against one another. Four-way matches, extravagant costumes, screen-swamping special moves, lovably pompous fight-talk, plus a story mode - all makes for an engaging five-minute bash.
