Bleach: Dark Souls, known in Japan as Bleach DS 2nd Kokui Hirameku Requiem (BLEACH DS 2nd 黒衣ひらめく鎮魂歌(レクイエム)?, lit. "Bleach DS 2nd: The Black-clothed Flickering Requiem") is the second Bleach game for the Nintendo DS. The game introduces new characters, adds new moves for the older characters as well as introduces new game modes. Bleach: Dark Souls also includes Hollows of varying sizes, for players to fight. The number of Reifu cards in-game are also increased from the original, and more cards (four cards, instead of the previous game's two) will be displayed on the touch screen during battle. The Wi-Fi battle mode has been improved to make it easier to play online.[1][2] The game's theme song is "Resistance" by High and Mighty Color.


Taking place right after Aizen's defection from the Soul Society, a festival is being held. Ichigo and the others attend before going home. However, some special Mod Souls have been accidentally uncovered by a member of the Department of Research and Development; one of the Mod Souls, Kai, takes the form of the researcher and takes his fellow Mod souls away. However, some of the Mod Souls begin festering with hatred and transform into copies of Hollows, such as Shrieker and Grand Fisher, causing havoc throughout the seireitei.
