imageNamco Bandai made a scaled down a Dragon Ball fighting game for smartphones. Dragon Ball: Tap Battle lets players do techniques like Final Flash with ease. In between fight scenes, there are action events where you can tap to deal even more damage.


Dragon Ball: Tap Battle supports Bluetooth connectivity for real time battles. You can fight with a friend and hit them with a wireless Kamehameha. Dragon Ball: Tap Battle will cost 350 yen ($3.75). The game will be released for iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and Android devices with version 2.3 or higher.

    Big new movie comes out, so Namco Bandai ports over an arcade card game running on PS2 hardware, and releases this. Yay : /

      Kind of a sad indication on how low DBZ seems to be on the priority list these days when this is the merch it gets… ah well. I guess you couldn’t expect too much for a franchise of it’s age?

        Well, to be fair, there’s still the hope that they’ll give us a console port of Zenkai Battle Royale (the Gundam Vs. like arcade game using GGPO) sometime in the near future. The most recent update added the new jackal/rabbit god character from the newest movie, so it’s probably only a matter of time before they give it the port treatment.

        On the other hand, as long as the game is still making money, Bamco is likely not in that much of a hurry…

      Card game isn’t bad but since you sound like the guy that goes for Graphics over Gameplay you wouldn’t like it regardless. And I’m not even a DBZ fan but the card game was a fresh and new experience for me.

    How is this “bad” ? I mean you literally have seen almost nothing out of it and already it’s crap ? I’m glad to see a 2D HD DBZ game for instance, and the other pictures of the game look really nice.

    As for a franchise “its age”, One Piece and Naruto and cute, but Dragon Ball is undeniably in that top 3 out of thousands of mangas. Also, there has been dozen of video games, the only reason it stopped is because the games became terrible. Rumor goes they were working on a new and more ambitious title last year, which is why we only got terrible crap like dbz kinect and the half assed budokai HD. Let’s hope we’re getting a new worthy dbz title on ps3 and xbox for the end of the year. While having a NICE mobile game going ;) .

    Looking good for a cell phone game. But it needs a video. Dragon Ball Z unconventional games have a history and I doubt serious gamers will get it without a video, no matter if they are fans or if the movie is about to come out.
