Tap The Touch Screen In Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butouden For A Special Move, Stand Still To Block

By Spencer . December 6, 2010 . 2:48am

image Namco Bandai rolled out a few more details about the fighting system in Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butouden. The Nintendo DS game has a button barrage combat system and uses the microphone for special attacks.


Seriously. One of the features of the game lets players shout super move names. So, how do you play Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butouden on a train where talking loudly is taboo? With the touch screen. You can pick special moves and the power level on the bottom screen.


Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butouden doesn’t appear to have a block command. Stand still and you automatically block weak attacks. Move towards an energy blast and you’ll deflect it.


The 3D fighting game comes out on February 3, 2011 in Japan. First print copies include a Dragon Ball Heroes trading card as a bonus.

    Good, like Phoenix Wright where it’s optional, I’ll just try yelling out for a couple of times.. The cover w/ the char montage looks good, funny Vegeta is in front of Goku on the card :) Will need to see more, the super deformed chars a kind of unique..

        Fuu…sion!! Kai should get to that part fairly fast :)

  • The voice controls is surely my favorite aspect of this game. lol.

  • On the topic of Dragon Ball: what ever happened to the contest that you guys held that finished a week ago? Did you hand-out the prizes without announcing the winners or are you still working on it? Just curious! Thanks for any answers!

    “Stand still and you automatically block weak attacks. Move towards an energy blast and you’ll deflect it.”
    So, stand still, you block, move forward, you deflect. Okay, WHEN can you get hit by energy blasts, then? They seem useless now (as they are in most of the games, but still).

    • It only counts for minor energy blasts. The deflection thing has been in loads of DBZ games since the PS2. Just get behind your opponent if you want to hit him with regular energy blasts.

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      If the person is standing still, moving sideways, moving backwards, charging up, they can get hit by energy blasts

  • I would love it if namco actually made a “complete dragonball universe” game sometime. I feel like the voice gimmick thing just would make any potential match broken

  • Sounds great!

    They should include special voice commands that unlocks easter eggs or special video clips, so that I’ll get the excuse to say “It’s over nine thoussaand!”.
