Bleach: Versus Crusade for the Wii was released in Japan on December 18, 2008. Scans depict a roster of characters in line with the manga storyline, featuring Neliel, Nnoitra, Ichigo with his hollow mask and Grimmjow's released form to name but a few. The gameplay appears to have been changed substantially, showing a split-screen during multi-player fights. It is a one-on-one fighter, but players pick a partner character for various team-up attacks and other maneuvers as well as being able to switch between them. It supports online play via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and can be played with the Classic Controller or GameCube controller in place of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk.
- Unlike other installments, it was developed by Treasure Co. Ltd. Visitors to the official website were allowed to vote for which two characters they wanted on the cover of the game; the winning pair was Ichigo and Rukia. The amount of time for the bankais and specials have all been extended.
- The game has 25 playable characters, less than the game before it. Athough most of the Espada are playable characters, only Espada 4-10 are playable. Stark, Barragan Luisenbarn, and Halibel are not, but Ulquiorra Cifer, Nnoitra Jiruga, Grimmjow Jeagerjaques, Zommari Lerouz, Szayel Aporro Granz, Aaroniero Arruruerie, and Yammy Riyalgo are.
