No escape from these new Bleach: Heat the Soul 5 clips

For some reason, Bleach: Heat the Soul isn't on schedule for a US release. Too bad, because these new gameplay clips from the latest game in the franchise (they're up to #5 now) look pretty solid. Fighting games are few and far on our handheld -- we'd love to see something other than Naruto on the horizon. Perhaps, someone, somewhere, will head our pleas for a US release of any of the Heat the Soul games. Onegai? Until then, we're simply going to have to import the games.

3. Connect your PSP to your computer using a USB cable.
4. Go to the PSP/GAME folder.

Super-exciting Bleach: Heat the Soul 5 trailer!!!!!

We love Japanese game trailers. Especially anime ones. This overly enthusiastic commercial includes one of the most energetic Ichigo performances we've ever heard. Maybe he's really psyched about this upcoming PSP brawler? Heat the Soul 5 somehow manages to extend the series to its fifth iteration (in the course of three years!) -- introducing new characters and fighting elements to the mix. With the current popularity of Bleach in the States, you'd think at least one of these PSP-exclusive fighting games would cross the Pacific. Right?

Bleach: Heat the Soul 5 screens show off tag battles

Some fantastic screenshots of the upcoming Bleach: Heat the Soul 5 have wound up on the interwebs today, courtesy of Game Watch. The freshly picked screenies depict the all new two-on-two tag gameplay at work.

It looks like the tag action will be the core of the gameplay as choosing the right type of tag team will determine special moves and the like. There are three different styles of tag teams: offensive, defensive, and technical. So far only 30 characters have been revealed out of a planned 42. A bit of a step down from Bleach 4's 51-strong roster, but who knows if any more hidden characters will pop up.

Currently, Bleach: Heat the Soul 5 is set for release in Japan on May 15th. Bleach 5 looks to be the biggest Heat the Soul title so far. Could it be the first one to cross over the Pacific and into North America?

More characters revealed for Bleach Heat the Soul 5

The Heat the Soul series continues to expand, as the cast of the popular Bleach series grows. The latest iteration of this PSP-exclusive (and currently import-only) brawler adds a few more familiar faces for series' fans. Hollow Ichigo (pictured, right) as does Renji, Ishida and a few more faces. To check out the recent additions to the line-up, visit the Japanese official page now.
