Namco Bandai Reclaims Rights To Publish Dragon Ball Games

Atari used to be the go to publisher for Dragon Ball games in North America. Not any more! Moving forward, Namco Bandai is the worldwide publisher for all games related to the anime series.


This fall Namco Bandai will release three Dragon Ball games: Dragon Ball Z: Raging Burst (Xbox 360 / PS3), Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo (Wii), and Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans (DS). The release window mirrors the announcement Namco Bandai Games Europe made last week.

    Atari’s cash cow is now gone! Hope they leave the option for Japanese/English voice selection like Atari has done for a while. Do they allow that for Naruto games (if Namco Bandai are involved with it at all)?

      Yeah, they’ve been doing that for Naruto games recently.

    Great, having Namco Bandai regain the rights should make things much more seamless and convenient. This also ought to make it more possible for something like Battle Stadium D.O.N. to be released here without Atari squatting on the exclusive North American Dragon Ball video game rights.

    This is good news, I guess. Atari mixed up the background music in most of the PS2 games afair. Especially with the Tenkaichi/Sparking series this was unforgiveable since they removed all the melodies from the TV show…

    This is awesome yet, I can’t help but feel sorry for Atari, its largest cash cow is down and theres only going down from here.
