Bleach: Shattered Blade, originally published as Bleach Wii: Hakujin Kirameku Rondo (BLEACH Wii 白刃きらめく輪舞曲(ロンド)?) in Japan, is the second installment in the Bleach Nintendo Home Consoles series and currently the only installment to be released outside of Japan. The game was released in Japan on December 14, 2006[1] and in North America on October 9, 2007,[1] with a European release planned on February 29, 2008 and Australia's release was on the 28th of February 2008. Although the anime outside Japan has not yet reached this point in the series, the game will be a direct port of the Japanese version for American and European consumers, similar to the US release of the game.

A new character has been designed specifically for this game, an arrancar named Arturo Plateado (アルトゥロ・プラチアド Aruturo Purachiado?). This character's appearance is similar to that of Grimmjow Jeagerjaques', though Arturo's hair and hollow remains, which also take the form of half a jaw bone like Grimmjow's, are fairly longer. Unlike most other arrancar, Arturo was self-made. Arturo can also disguise himself as anything from Gotei 13 captains to zanpakutō spirits. He once raided the Soul Society, but was sealed beneath Sōkyoku Hill by the Soul Reapers 2000 years prior to the start of Bleach. When the Sōkyoku was destroyed during Ichigo Kurosaki's rescue of Rukia Kuchiki, the seal placed on Arturo was broken and he was freed. The game has so far received mediocre reviews. GameSpot gave it a 3.5 score. IGN gave the game a 6.3 out of 10.
