    I think I’ll pass on DBZ Kinect. I’ll wait for a better game like Budokai HD.

  • Shogunreaper

    Probably be a bad character like ssj3 vegeta, but then again this game is going to be bad either way so it doesn’t really matter.

  • AuraGuyChris

    But I don’t wanna be a Super Souiyeh!

    I love Dragonball Z with a passion you couldn’t imagine. But I’m going to pass on this game (although I might just buy it as a collectors item) and watch the anime on Youtube ! It is such a precious franchise, so publishers need to take care when releasing games, they need to make sure they are putting out quality, the last good DBZ game was Budokai 3. 

  • Spider-Man

    Pass! I’ll wait for a game where I can sit down with a controller. Not flail around.

    (Yes, I’m aware of other media ;)

    “…only in Dragon Ball Z for Kinect” huh?

    Dragon Ball Heroes was promoted with this guy last year and released with him last year. Sure, not outside Japan, not on a console/portable we can get our hands on easily but it should isn’t first and it isn’t a good game which will make him feel individual or significant.

    This was already done in 1995 with Dragonball VR VS by Sega

    Yes in Japan they had virtual controllers for that game

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    That Bardock episode was a bit nonsensical. How is it that he timetravels if he was supposed to die?

    • Fidelis

      Another result of the continuum shift

    • Guest

       That wasn’t written by Toriyama just so you know. It was an adaptation of a manga one shot that was done by some chick (but I think Toriyama did approve)

      • Rav

        I believe the original bardock special was not written by toriyama either, he just created the character design for him

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    The brilliant scientist goes Super Saiyan!


    •  Now I wonder if that dialogue was thrown in for shiz and giggles. lol

      • OatMatadoQuatro

        The dub staff didn’t know Japanese pretty well according to rumors

        • Then shouldn’t the Funimation re-releases include the dialogue that was suppose to be there?

  • One more reason to become a Super Sigh-an ! *sigh*…

  • zero254

    I smell a flop.

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    If Stat Wars Kinect flopped…I do not see this achieving success.

    Tenkaichi 2 with my Wii mote and Nuchuk was enough…I loved it!

    I would rather pick up Budokai HD and Tekken Tag 2 for some real fighting prowess.

  • DemonicX

    Yeah….I think I’ll pass.
