In Bleach vs Naruto 2.5, Shinigami and Shinobi once again have to fight for a title of the strongest kind of warriors. Which side will receive your support in this conflict? It's your choice. Choose your warrior and an assistant, who will help you during the fight. Start a series of clashes in which you will finally find out which world is more powerful.
This version adds four new characters - two playable and two assistants. Three new characters from Naruto: Jugo, Karin, and Suigetsu Hozuki. A new character representing Bleach is Soifon.
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.
