Update: Read our hands on impressions of Dragon Ball Z for Kinect here.

I think Microsoft would say something like, "You are the Super Saiyan" if they made a commercial Dragon Ball Z for Kinect. Spike Chunsoft’s yearly Dragon Ball game utilizes the Xbox 360 Kinect sensor and brings your jabs into the game. There are over 100 moves from the anime series to learn like Goku’s Spirit Bomb, Vegeta’s Final Flash, Piccolo’s Special Beam Cannon, and of course the Kamehameha. Dragon Ball Z for Kinect also reads close range attacks like uppercuts, hooks, guard (as if you’re boxing), kicks, and a charge up motion to restore ki.


Dragon Ball Z for Kinect will have over 50 playable characters from the series including: Goku, Piccolo, Krillin, Yamcha, Raditz, Frieza, and a brand new character.

Characters and powerups can be unlocked by scanning 20+ QR codes with the Kinect sensor.



Dragon Ball Z for Kinect will retell the Dragon Ball Z saga, this time from a first person perspective, when Namco Bandai releases the Xbox 360 game in October.

  • dbz kai really it cuts out alot and doesn’t even go past the frieza saga come on man thats just when dbz gets goooood…..

  • its super saiyan bardock from the new OVA :p and i dont know why everyone is hating on this i think they should at least give it a try before judging it,even tho the commercial was stupid i think the gameplay looked really cool..

      I’ve seen the OVA and read the manga of it as well, I assume it was a DBZ that didn’t appear before in a DBZ game (well SSJ Bardock is consider one, but as a transformation as oppose to a completely different character).

      I’m interest in it, but it doesn’t seem like the game will last long or sell very well despite being a DBZ game. Though I wouldn’t mind the workout and the actions are interesting.
