Once the player has won the battle, his characters will earn experience points which will increase their stats and unlock new abilities.

This game will feature around 180 characters. Most of the cast from Bleach DS 2nd: Kokui Hirameku Requiem will return and the newcomers will include Shinigami Retsu Unohana, Yumichika Ayasegawa, Kaien Shiba, Jidanbō and Tetsuzaemon Iba, Vizard Shinji Hirako and Hiyori Sarugaki, and Arrancar Ulquiorra Schiffer, Grimmjow Jeagerjaques and Yammy, as well as the Números.
