    While i did expect something to happen with the Vita release, this is ten times better then what i was expecting.

    • TheExile285

      Agreed. I was expecting another Pirate Warriors 2 fiasco >_>

      • Shady Shariest

        Why did you remind us of it ;(

        • TheExile285

          I’m sorry, I still haven’t gotten over it. ;_;

          Even if it means all of Namcos future Vita games are localized DD, I hope it doesn’t happen again.

          • Shady Shariest

            Neither have i…And i’m just working to get the molah for buying the Vita… (Along with Dis. D2, ofc)

            I wan’t it still to be localized… Maybe if they make yet another one ;( But sadly the Luffy statue might’ve been a “Sorry, we suck”- type of thing ;|

          • Not only am I not over it, I feel like I should still demand it, even if it’s a losing fight =(

          • Shady Shariest

            Me too, i would be more than up to beating up people to get the game here… :P

          • Aha, let’s not get crazy (you take that one suit, I’ll storm into the office)!

          • Shady Shariest

            ..Buh… I all ready set it on fire?
            edit:There’s also improvised explosives inside…So if you see a ketchup bottle, don’t shake it! :O

      • Highasthesky

        I’m assuming it works like this: If the PS3 receives a digital only release in the states, the Vita version will never hit shores. If the PS3 gets a physical release the Vita will get a digital release.

      • Vash bane

        what happened? dl only?

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          Yes, it was DL only on the PS3 and they skipped out on it for the Vita entirely.

  • Lawrence Hobson

    Great, another DBZ game.

  • Interface23

    If European Vita is retail I’ll buy it.

  • Suriel Cruz

    They did this, just so they can add Goku’s God Mode and the new enemie. -sigh-

    • Sardorim

      Which means we may not get SSJ4 after all as it would put SSJ God to shame… Siiigh. Guess I’m passing on this DBZ game too. No reason for me to play it when BT3 still will have the most content and it has SSJ4.

    • Anime10121

      Of course. That’s the entire reason the movie existed to begin with, so they could spam more games, figures, and merchandise.

      • Sardorim

        True enough. They will milk SSJ God and SSJ3 Future Trunks and Gogeta who haven’t appeared on console games yet. When the SSJ3 craze does eventually die down they’ll re-introduce GT for SSJ4. Will be a long wait though as Japan is loving all these new SSJ3’s.

        I still want SSJ Raditz and Nappa. >_>

  • Solomon_Kano

    Digital-only on Vita? Figured there’d be something if we got it at all, but I don’t really have a problem with getting it digital. So this is still good news to me. Wonder when it’s supposed to come out…

    • Vita’s almost an all DD platform at this point ;-; Well, I don’t mind; it’s better than not at all but I think a low distribution retail run couldn’t have hurt.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Certainly would’ve been nice.

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        My only problem is how high priced the memory cards are. Also I would like a bigger size than 32 GB.
        It’s cool that they decided to release it on the Vita… portable games + digital work well together imo.

        • To be honest, I don’t think I’d worry about the whole digital thing if I wasn’t concerned about Vita at retail. I like the incentive that Europe’s got with the games on a memory card. I think that’d be a good way to show off the independent games and be another means for retailers to make money on what’s quickly becoming a full digital eco system. Though I do believe DBZ was strong enough to sell at retail even on Vita.

  • Sardorim

    Digital only is far cheaper… They could cut so much out of the factor if they let more games release digital only out in the west, such as niche RPGs and strategy games.

    • Shady Shariest

      Agreed…It’s better to have people buy Digital games, and suffer occasional whiners, than limit Europe to the game-wasteland it is now…

      Another + side is that here up north digital goods are less limited in law than physical releases :)

  • Dinoegg96

    But I want a retail version for my Vita >.<

  • HassanJamal

    Well thats, i guess, better than they did with OP PW2. They didnt release a vita version at all :L

  • Adrian Duran

    Brazil is a part of Latin America

  • robloxDBGT2

    when will it come out in south america
