Download Bleach: Heat the Soul 4 PSP PPSSPP
Bleach: Heat the Soul is a series of 3-D cel-shaded fighting games for the PSP based on the popular manga and anime series Bleach by Tite Kubo. Each installment is developed by Eighting and published by Konami. All installments have been released only in Japan.
Unlike its predecessors, Heat the Soul 4 features a “Character Master” mode. In it, the player chooses a character and goes through a series of five battles and is usually faced with certain conditions, such as using only grab to inflict damage, in order to finish the battle. After the third and final battles, a multiple answer question posed by the character must be answered. Depending on the answer, the player is either rewarded 200 points, 50 points, or nothing. For each battle won, a random number of experience points will be added to the character’s total. As the level grows higher, bonuses such as voice tests and alternate costumes can be unlocked. The player is also given 100 points per battle; these go towards unlocking more characters and stages.
In each game of the series, the player controls one of many characters directly based upon their Bleach manga counterparts. The objective of each match is to reduce the opponent’s health to zero using basic attacks and special techniques unique to each character and derived from techniques they use in the source material. For instance, Ichigo Kurosaki’s use of his Black Getsuga Tensho (though only while using Ichigo’s bankai form) and Rukia Kuchiki’s utilization of kidō.
For some techniques, characters have available a “spirit gauge,” which depletes upon execution. Most techniques are not executed in real time, and instead have an accompanying cinematic that takes place. Furthermore, some characters can transform into certain alternative forms mid-battle, albeit until their spirit gauge is fully drained or the player cancels the transformation.
