We don't know anything about this damn game, and it seems to have a lot of original content. I think we should organize somehow and try to get info from Japanese people, or, at least, someone that could translate Japanese for us.
As far as I know, there are 3 new types of characters:
- Bansui Amatsuki: Seems to be the villain of the game.
- Unknown: A big elite-looking hollow.
- Original Enemies: Some elite-looking humanoid hollows.
You can visit the videogame's official page for "more info":
Whatever, it's impossible to find anything about this game in the net, nothing is nothing.
I'd like to know what this game is about, as I guess you all do, too. Let's see if we can get something out of this ;) :P.--Lon-ami 18:11, December 17, 2009 (UTC)
I'll see what I can do, but it'll be slow-going at best. I'm not good with translating long blocks of text, such as those which feature in the character descriptions--thanks to their complicated clauses and grammar and idioms etc.--but I might be able to help a bit. If/when I can, I'll probably write what I can get on the "Bansui Amatsuki" Talk page and probably the Talk pages of the admins. Let me know if you think somewhere else would be better.

- Those places are ok, but don't forget to post you updated them here, too. I've make a similar post in the Spanish bleach wiki, and I'll use this post to update whatever advance we make there, too. Thanks for the help ;).--Lon-ami 20:16, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry for the brevity of this, but trying to decrypt any info on this game with my sporadic knowledge of Japanese grammar is very tough and slow-going at best. Since the links to this game on the Japanese site itself had their data as images rather than text, I turned to the Japanese Wiki on this game, so I've no idea how accurate it may actually be. I plan to put more info on the appropriate pages as I can arrive at it, but I must warn: my data could be wrong, as it is derived chiefly from the Japanese Wikis and my own imperfect knowledge. However, seeing no big progress on the issue yet, I'll do what I can.
The title Hanatareshi Yabou (in you guys' romanization, it should be ~ Yabō) seems to translate "Loosed Ambition(s)" or "Unleashed Ambition(s)." Hanatareshi seems to be some archaic adjective formed from the verb hanatareru (with a stem hanatare-) "be loosed, be freed," the passive form of hanatsu "loose, free." Several manga and anime seem to be using this deliberate archaism to affect a sense of elegance and conservative language; another example is using the old adjectival ending -ki (corresponding to adverbial -ku), e.g. tsuyoki (instead of usual tsuyoi) "strong," which matches tsuyoku "strongly." Yabou means "ambition(s), aspiration(s), designs," but can also mean "treachery" (prob. < "ulterior motive"). This sense "treachery," though, is not the most primary, so since English "ambition" can also have a negative sense, I would keep it.
The game revolves around Bansui Amatsuki, a former Shinigami who "wields a shocking amount of reiatsu" even for a captain-class Shinigami. Long ago, he was a gifted researcher who specialized in souls and reishi, and devised many inventions long before the founding of the Technological Development Bureau (which Urahara founded and Mayuri Kurotsuchi now runs). The phrasing confounds me, but apparently he believed that by suppressing the Hollowfaction process, he would eliminate the need for the Shinigami as a martial force (but don't hold me to that, the sentence is very labyrinthine to my eyes). Some of the text even looked like he was regarded as Urahara's esteemed mentor, but this is difficult to interpret.
However, he was enmeshed in a dispute with the authorities of Soul Society (man, Central 46 just can't stop fighting with people, can they? :) ), betrayed by the Shinigami, and banished from Soul Society. Because of this, he harbors a deep grudge against the Shinigami, and "plots the destruction of the world."
I started a little bit of work on the others, too--who are named in the Japanese Wikis. One of the Hollows (the chief and biggest one, I'd guess) is called "Shemihaza" (シェミハーザ Shemihāza ; my romanization is unconfirmed), apparently named for the famous fallen angel of demonology.
Though this is as far as I've gotten, and it could be riddled with mistakes, I hope this helps set the ball rolling. I'll continue doing what I can, and please let me know if you have any questions--I'll try to answer them. Adam Restling 04:34, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

Bansui's Resurreccion Edit
I finished the game some days ago and while I can't point out much since I don't understand japanese, there are some mistakes in the pages related to the game.
Starting here: http://www.jp.playstation.com/scej/title/bleach/hanatareshi/chara4.html The hollow that appears here is in fact Bansui's Resurreccion. It appears right after Bansui is defeated and when we defeat him Bansui reappears, lying on the ground until he dies, so it's pretty sure they are the same being.
Problem here is that the abilities that appear on the Resurrecion section of Bansui's article aren't shown when he fights in resurrecion. They seem to be abilities completely distinct of it and some seem to be used by the Hollows that appear here: http://www.jp.playstation.com/scej/title/bleach/hanatareshi/chara5.html
Also regarding Bansui, his skeleton-cane seems to be his sealed Zanpakuto, because he's holding a scythe when Ichigo's group fights him. Again, I can't be sure because I'm unable to interpret japanese, but that must be his Shikai.
At least Bansui's page will need a lot of cleanup, I'm afraid.
