Who will win the big battle between Shinigami and Shinobi? No matter which side you are on. In Bleach vs Naruto 2.4 you can choose character you'll play, and also an assistant who can perform additional special attacks and give you an advantage in battle.
Two new characters from Naruto appeared in version 2.4: Jiraiya as a playable character and Hinata as an summoned assistant. At this moment the game offers a total of 36 playable characters and 21 assistants.
The gameplay is simple and similar to other classic arcade fighting games. You can move from left to right ( A D ), block enemy attacks (S ), jump ( K ), dash ( L ), attack your opponents with basic attacks ( J ), powerful special attacks ( U I ) or with help of your assistant ( O ). W key isn't used to move, but it can be combined with the attack keys to perform air attacks or blasts directed upwards. Using a block and attack ( S + J ) at the same time will activate one of the character's special abilities. If you get 3 bars of energy, you can activate the transformation using attack and jump at the same time ( J + K ). It'll increase speed, power and skills of your character.
To start the game, click on the title screen, then use the keys ( W S to up and down, A D to left and right ) to navigate the menu. Confirm your selection by pressing J or use K to return to the previous view. Player 2 chooses the character using and confirms by pressing 1.
