    Argh… When I go to Japan few month ago, i dint play this game, now feel like can play in 3ds but lets hope it goes to US version as most Dragon Ball game come out in US, lets hope this too.

    • Just Tim

      I think this will have a good chance to get localized, since the merger days got most (if not all) Dragon Ball games got localized outside Japan.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    I can smell the frame rate from here.

      • They suck….that’s right I have the balls to say they stink.
        This is absolutely horrible, those graphics are under PSP’s Dragon Ball Z Tenkaichi Tag Team.

        This game blows…
        Handhelds deserve better, don’t port us stuff you aren’t willing to put time into.

  • Chogokin

    I wonder when the GvG style game will get a system release.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    -All right gentlemen we need ideas for an original character!
    -Pan+Different clothing=New character

    • Just Tim

      LOL, that’s like saying Toriyama is being lazy again with the art! xD

      • OatMatadoQuatro

        Well, Tori admitted he was getting tired of Dragon Ball by the Buu arc. Even Krillin said once that Tori was getting lazy drawing Goten and Trunks doing Fusion but you’ll be surprised with how far this can get. 

        -Now this is harder guys! A new male character
        -Draw Goku, put all his hair in the air, new clothes, color him for two minutes and you get… New character
        *Audience claps*

        • Is it even confirmed that he drew any of this? I doubt he’s involved in EVERY SINGLE Dragon Ball related game/movie/show.

          • JonathanisPrimus

            No, Toriyama has never been used in marketing for Heroes outside of being a consultant to the Episode of Bardock mini-manga his apprentice did. Toriyama has no involved even with the Dragon Ball Heroes manga series in V-JUMP.

    • Grenalie

      Good old Toriyama same-face.

  • Areuto

    So………………female super sayian? next there’s gonna be a female president….

    • Just Tim

      …already happened in the Philippines, twice!

    •  Already happen in Liberation Maiden. She can also do a Kame wave in her robot.

    • Hoshi星

       “female president”

      >My girlfriend is the president ;p

  • harmonyworld

    Aw yeah!
    Female super saiyan FTW!!!

    • Areuto

      -Insert Sexiest Joke here-

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I really hope that this trend will continue.^_^ More Arcade exchanted port coming for consoles or handheld is always a plus for me as there are a lot of gems that never come out of Japan and the only chance we can play the game is only when they come to any handheld or consoles.

    More TCG game for 3DS will also be nice.^_^ Monster Rancher Trading card game anyone?^_^

    • Solomon_Kano

      More arcade porting indeed. I really want that light gun game Squenix put out. I can’t remember what it was called but it had you running around a city fighting other players online and it looked awesome. And that Transformers looking game they had. That one’s getting a 3DS game (which I also want), but it’s a different genre so I hope they port the arcade version to PS3.

  • Female super saiyan ftw~

  • Eduardo Schmidt Bertazzo Silve

    really?? wtf was this graphics… 3ds can do WAY BETTER! 

  • Nicholas Stewart

    Always like to see Broly owning up the good guys

  • RaikageV

    It’s for 3DS, not DS? It looks so crappy. ^^”
