With just under two weeks until the launch of J-Stars Victory VS+ we’re rounding off our character profiles with, Ichigo Kurosaki.

After a week of covering some of the beginning characters found in the arcade brawler, J-Stars Victory VS+, we’re going to finish our character profiles with Bleach’s Ichigo Kurosaki. In case you’ve missed it, all week we’ve been looking at some of the characters from the game, including Son Goku, Luffy, Naruto, and Toriko, you can check them all out with the links on the names.

So, who else is in the starting roster of the game?

Name: Ichigo Kurosaki, or simply, Ichigo.

Anime or Manga property: Ichigo Kurosaki is the main character from the long running and popular Weekly Shonen Jump series Bleach. Starting back in August 2001 and is still running today with the anime of Bleach running from October 2004 till March 2012 and a few films to go alongside it. Bleach follows the story of Ichigo, a human with Shinigami powers, who is able to see ghosts which ends up leading him to meet Rukia Kuchiki, a soul reaper. Which in turn leads him on a crazy adventure full of epic battles, brilliant humor and ever escalating skirmishes with a number of foes over the many arcs of the series. It is a lot to explain in a short blast but trust, it is a great experience.

What he’ll bring to J-Stars Victory VS+: Within J-Stars Victory VS+ Ichigo has a lot of fast-moving, mid ranged sword attacks and rapid hit combos. Additionally Ichigo has a number of powers that he can charge up to increase his damage output and performance. Take note though, some attacks have a small delay between being used and making contact with your foe. As a plus however most attacks will send foes flying giving you some time to recharge, move in for an extra hit or even just traut. Land that first hit and keep the damage coming.

Other Bleach characters within the game include Rukia Kuchiki and Aizen Sousuke.

J-Stars Victory VS+ will be launching on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita on June 26. The game features 52 characters from 32 different Jump series, and we’ll be discussing more of these later this week.
