Japanese gaming blogs are currently busy posting a couple of new PSP games based on an upcoming issue of V Jump. Bleach: Heat The Soul 7 is set to arrive sometime this year in Japan apparently. Previous games of the long running 3D fighting series always come out in May but it's looking unlikely this around. After Naruto, Gundam and Reborn!, Dragon Ball is another series that will get a team based fighting game for PSP. The game will be called Dragon Ball Tag VS and it's also set for release sometime this year in the country.
