BL-05 ============================================================== * Introduction * *BL-01* ============================================================== Welcome to my first ever FAQ, for Bleach: Heat the Soul for the Sony Playstation Portable (PSP). B:HtS is the first 3D cel-shaded fighter available for the PSP, based off the extremely popular manga and anime series "Bleach" by Kubo Tite. I'll assume if you're here, and looking at this FAQ, you're already a Bleach fan, and know about the story, so i'm only really going to cover the technical side of the game. So, please enjoy my first FAQ. ============================================================== * Version History * *BL-02* ============================================================== - April 15th, 2005: Version 1.00. First version, still *ALOT* to work on. Just wanted to get a basic move list out, and the other basics. ============================================================== * Games Modes * *BL-03* ============================================================== -------------------- * Options * BL-03-1* -------------------- Once you enter the Mode Selection screen, press Triangle to enter the Options menu. Here you can select: - Difficulty: There are 5 levels of difficulty, and the default value is 3. - Damage Level: Again, 5 levels, 1 being the lowest amount of damage, and 5 being the highest. - Key Config: X = Physical Attack. Circle = Weapon Attack. Square = Soul Energy. Triangle = Jump. The final option in the Key Config menu is to reset the keys to their default setting as listed above. - Sound: - System Voice: Let's you modify the system voice, when it actually does talk, you can change it from Default to Ichigo or Rukia. - BGM Volume: From 100%-0% - SE Volume: Sound Effects volume, 100%-0% - Save/Load: Gives you a Save, Load, Auto-Save, and Delete option. When you hit "Save" press "Left" once and hit Circle to save your game (You want the 2 symbol word (Yes) and not the 3 symbol word which is ("No")) ------------------- * VS CPU * BL-03-2* ------------------- VS CPU is just that, you playing versus the computer. You chose any fighter, and fight your way through the remaining fighters and yourself. ----------------------- OTHER MODES COMING SOON ----------------------- ============================================================== * Characters * *BL-04* ============================================================== 1. Circle will select the original outfit for the character, and Triangle will select their alternate outfit. X will bring you back to the prior screen. 2. "Super Guage" You and your enemy share a common Super Guage. It's split 50/50 at first, and each time you hit the enemy, you gain a bit, and he/she looses a bit. As long as you have any energy left in your gauge, you can attempt a super move (Square, quickly followed by X or Circle). Even if you have no energy in your gauge you can perform a super move, however if you miss, your character will be left panting for several moments, and you can't move or attack. 3. All characters can, by hitting Square twice use their spiritual energy to "stun" the enemy for a moment or two. The range of the spiritual energy differs for each character, but only by a little bit. 4. When you are on your second life bar, and low on health, your health bar will flash red. At this point you can press Square quickly followed by Triangle to raise your offense while lowering your defense. Additionally, when you use your spiritual power to stun the enemy, the area affected will be much larger than normal. **** ALL MOVES ARE PERFORMED FROM STARTING POSITION. I.E: **** YOUR CHARACTER IS FACING LEFT. ********************** ---------------------------- * Kurosaki Ichigo * BL-04-1* ---------------------------- Ichigo's main weapon is a sword, a "Zanpakutou" called "Zangetsu" that is really quiet large, as you'll see. Moves: X = A simple punch. X + Left = A middle level roundhouse kick. X + Right = Ichigo kick's forward and leans into it. X + Down = A small kick to the shin. X + Up = Ichigo performs a somersault type flip kick. Circle = A diagonal-upwards left to right sword swipe. Circle + Left = Ichigo's throw move.

Circle + Down x2= After the initial downwards swipe Ichigo jumps a bit and slashes downward with his sword. Circle + Up = Ichigo performs a small upwards jumping slash. Triangle x2 = Ichigo jumps, then dashes forward in the air Square -> X = Supermove #1. Ichigo performs a up-to-down vertical slash shooting a long range, very large projectile (Getsuga Tenshou, I believe it's called.) Square -> O = Supermove #2. Ichigo waits to be attacked, and if attacked physically. ------------------------- * Ishida Uryu * BL-04-02* ------------------------- Ishida's main weapon is for all intents and purposes an "Energy Bow" the he materializes at will.

Circle = Ishida materializes his bow and fires at the enemy's chest. Circle x1(2,3,4)= Ishida fires at the enemie's chest twice, then lower at their legs twice. Circle + Left = Ishida dashes and blurs moving forward a good distance, facing the opposite direction that he started in (can pass through projectiles and enemies, if done properly) Circle + Right = Ishida's throw. Grabs the enemies wrist, turns 180 degrees and elbows them in the stomach knocking them down. Circle + Down = Fires an arrow at the enemy's legs. Triangle+Circle = Ishida jumps then fires an arrow downwards, at a 45 degree angle. Square + X (or Circle) = Supermove. If it connects, Ishida shoots an arrow, then dashes to to another position, and repeats, getting faster each time, and the final arrow is shot from point blank range. ---------------------------------- * Yasutora "Chad" Sado * BL-04-03* ---------------------------------- Chad's weapon is a... powered up left arm? I'll detail this better next update ^_^; X = A simple punch. X + Left = A straight forward powerful kick. X + Right = Chad slides forward a little bit and does a backhanded punch to the enemy's middle. X + Down = Chad kicks, as if he were kicking a football. X + Up = An uppercut. Circle = An overhead powerful swipe with his stronger arm. Circle + Right = Chad charges his stronger arm for a moment and then releases a powerful energy blast, it leaves him open for attack for a short while. Circle + Left = Chad's throw. Chad grab's the enemy and tosses them downwards into the ground (or if near a wall, they'll bounce off that first) Circle + Down = A backhand with his strong arm that sends the person flying. Circle + Down x2= Similar to his normal Circle move. Circle + Down x3= Chad finishes the combo by jumping in the air and lands a ground shaking punch on the downed enemy. Circle + Up = A jumping uppercut with his stronger arm. Triangle + Crcl = Chad jumps up high and as he lands punches the ground with his stronger arm, knocking down anyone close to it. Square + X (or Circle) = Supermove. Chad does a massive uppercut, then jumps up and shoots an energy blast knocking the enemy down, and lands before they hit the ground and hits them with another energy blast. ------------------------- * Abarai Renji * BL-04-4* ------------------------- Renji like Ichigo uses a sword called "Zabimaru" that looks like a normal samurai sword, at most times. X = A simple punch X + Right = An overhead axe-kick that lands on the enemy's head. X + Left = Renji leans back and performs a massive headbutt. X + Down = Kick at the enemy's legs. X + Down x2 = Kick at the enemy's legs, then stomach. X + Down x3 = Kick at the enemys legs, then stomach, then head. X + Up = A jumping kick to the enemy's head. Circle = Vertical up to down sword slice. Circle x2 x3 = A second and third sword swipe. Circle + Right = Renji's sword splits into longer pieces and reaches forward across the screen. Circle + Left = Renji's throw. Renji grab's the enemy's hand, pulls them in then does a forward slash across their chest. Circle + Up = Horizontal slash at the enemy's head. Circle + Up x2 = Renji does one horizontal slash at the enemy's head, then a second. Circle + Down = A downward slash at the enemy's leg. Circle + Down x2= Downward slash at the enemy's leg, followed by the extending sword attack. Triangle x2 = Renji jumps, then dashes forward in the air. Square + X (or Circle) = Supermove. Renji uses his extended sword to launch the enemy into the air, then uses his sword like a whip several times before smashing the enemy into the time. -------------------------- * Kuchiki Rukia * BL-04-5* -------------------------- Rukia has no weapon, so all her circle attacks in the game are spells. X = A palm strike to the head. X + Right = A sliding elbow to the stomach. X + Left = A powerful sidekick to the stomach. X + Up = Rukia jumps and flips, facing the opposite direction she started. X + Down = A sweep kick at the enemy's legs. X + Down x2 = Sweep kick followed by a rising kick. Circle = Rukia shoots an energy ball at the enemy. Circle + Right = Rukia shoots several small fireballs in an expending arc, with limited range. Circle + Left = Rukia's throw. Rukia grabs the enemy's head, jumps and spins around then kicks them in the head. Circle + Down = Rukia extends her hand and a small transparent blast of energy reaches out a decent distance, if the enemy touches it, they are hell by a binding spell for a moment. Circle + Up = Same as Circle + Down, but shot up and diagonally, if it hits the enemy they are held by a binding spell and fall to the ground. Triangle + Circle=Rukia jumps and shoots an energy ball downwards at a 45degree angle. Square + X = Supermove #1. Rukia jumps forward and knees the enemy in the head, and plants her hand on top of their head, before jumping, performing several hand symbols creating an explosion when she lands on the enemy's shoulder, which sends the enemy flying across the screen. Square + Circle = Supermove #2. Rukia fires a larger energy ball at the enemy. --------------------------- * Orihime Inoue * BL-04-6 * --------------------------- Orihime's "weapon" are her personal spirits. X = A punch to the enemy's stomach. X x2,3,4 = More punches to the enemy ending in an uppercut. X + Left = Inoue shoves the enemy. X + Left x2 = After the shove, she turns around and uh... Hits the enemy with her rear ^_^; X + Right = Inoue slides forward then uppercuts the enemy. X + Right x2 = After the uppercut, she jumps forward a bit and performs another. X + Down = A kick at the enemy's .. foot? X + Down x2,3,4 = More kicks at the enemy's foot. Circle = Inoue shoots one of her spirits "Tsubaki" at the enemy, in the form of a round energy ball. Circle + Left = Inoue's throw. Switch to a view behind the enemy, and Inoue performs several karate type punches at the enemy. Circle + Right = Inoue creates a triangluar yellow shield in front of her and dashes forward using the shield to smash the enemy. Circle + Up = Inoue twirls and shoots "Tsubaki" up in the air, which then zooms down to hit the enemy. Circle + Down = Inoue forms the triangle on the ground under the enemy then raises it upwards, knocking the enemy up a bit. Triangle+Circle = Inoue jumps and shoots "Tsubaki" downwards, at a 45 degree angle. Square + X (or Circle) = Supermove. Inoue hits the enemy with her triangular yellow shield, then summons "Tsubaki" in a small storm of energy, and throws him at the enemy for big damage. ------------------- * Credits * BL-05 * ------------------- Thanks go out to, CJayC for keeping the best video game FAQ site out there.
