It Looks Like Namco Bandai Is About To Announce A Dragon Ball Z Game For The U.S.

By Spencer . June 21, 2013 . 2:11am

imageNamco Bandai has a panel at Anime Expo this year titled "Bandai Namco Games Presents: DBZ." Holding a panel for last year’s Dragon Ball Z HD ports doesn’t make sense so this is most likely for a new game – probably Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z. This fighting game was revealed earlier this week and will have Super Saiyan God as a playable character.


Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PlayStation Vita in Japan.


Another panel for Naruto held by Bandai Namco Games and Shueisha will take place the day after the Dragon Ball Z panel. I wonder what they will reveal at this panel since CyberConnect2 just finished developing Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3.

    It’s already got an english site and the vita version is listed

    • Duc PC-QB

      Vita ? excellent !!!

    • TheExile285

      You are my hero right now! I was fearful Vita would get shafted again like with pirate Warriors 2

      Edit: oh wow, there’s a trailer too. It’s basically Tenkaishi with 4 player teams. Looks good (IMO)

    • Solomon_Kano

      Vita version getting localized!? Yessssss.

      Trailer says it’s developed by Artdink. Interesting.

      • Sango

        Its Dbz, it’ll get localized. The Dbz games we got for the psp did.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Yea, I take no chances when it comes to Vita games lol. DBZ or otherwise, nothing’s certain there.

        • Spider-Man

          Dragonball Heroes: Ultimate Mission for the 3DS?

          • Tre W

            Not to mention Ultimate Butoden for DS. That one especially made me a sad panda. But at least the DS was region free.

          • Sango

            Lol, I said psp right? We did a good amount of Dbz games for the psp. It would be cool if we got Legacy of Goku 1 & 2 plus Buu’s fury for the 3ds remasterd.

    • Aoshi00

      Nice trailer… it’s a bit sad Vegeta/Horikawa Ryo sounds a bit old now, really coarse when he yells. He used to be one of my fav seiyuu, sounding so youthful, cool, and handsome.. The Andromeda Shun that never became hades except in the drama CD/soundtrack

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      It kind of reminds me of a DBZ game I played on the PS1. It was only released in Japan and it had multiple characters on the screen battling. There was a bar at the bottom and it showed which team was winning. Once you overwhelm the enemy (or other player) by filling the bar completely with your color, your character did an attack via a cutscene and hurt that enemy.
      Of course it probably won’t play like that…

        • Musashi234

          Dragonball Z Legend heh So many Hours put into that game!!

      • John Ross

        It probably will since you said all that lol. Good eye. :)

      • ssj3gokou24

        It was called db legends

  • Spider-Man

    I’d rather have an HD port of Tenkaichi 3. Anyways, trailer.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I’d take Tenkaichi HD in addition to this, but I won’t say rather. This is looking good enough on its own.

    • Fango

      no thanks jeff

  • Virevolte

    A multiplayer Tenkaishi game… Let’s wait & see :/

  • Zohard

    Dragon ball Z again, what kind of joke is this ! Not even funny man ^^”

  • Randy Marsh

    Piccolo and Krillin are alive during the final battle with Frieza? Nothing makes sense anymore!

    • Aoshi00

      In the 2nd DBZ RPG on the NES, all the Z fighters were available against Freeza too..

      • Randy Marsh

        Ahh, never knew that, the only DBZ RPG I played was one for the Super Famicom.

        • Aoshi00

          I think in Super Saiya Legend, some extra Z fighters were also there against Vegeta and Freeza, but it was a great game, the first RPG on the Super Famicom, I loved the music..

    • Sango

      Yes… that’s when Freiza kills them.

  • JMaster3000


  • Solomon_Kano

    Good to see they’re even bringing the Vita version.

    Maybe the Shueisha panel will be for JoJo? It’d be a nice surprise and I’m not really sure what else they’d have to show, unless they’ve got something they haven’t even announced in Japan yet.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      I was thinking about JoJo… maybe I’m always thinking about it…

      • Solomon_Kano

        You’re definitely always thinking about it lol.

  • Spirit Macardi

    I wonder if this panel will also serve as confirmation that Funimation will be dubbing the new movie, since the DBZ games always have an English voice track but the new characters have yet to have an English debut.

  • The number of DBZ games is over 9000 now.

  • SirRichard

    Please, please for the love of god make the Shueisha panel be for Jojo, I’m importing the game already but I would double-dip no questions asked.

  • Musashi234

    If it comes with the Battle of Gods Movie that would be amazing!

  • Anna Scruton

    Maaan. I wanted that DBZ 3DS game. Oh well :(

    • TheGameTagerZ

      I got it and it’s not THAT great. But it is different.

      • Anna Scruton

        It just looks fun imo, I’d like to give it a play.

  • Ni

    Nambai EU already uploaded the trailer

  • Steven Higgins

    I havn’t played a DBZ game since Infinite World. If it is Battle of Z I will get it.

    Slightly off topic: Has Battle of the Gods been dubbed? If not they could use this game to get that to happen.

    Farther off-topic: Still waiting for an NA ver. of DBO.

  • S- Class Wizard KaRamo

    i want a Naruto game for my vita
