A Closer Look At Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Z’s Sage Mode Naruto Costume For Goku

By Spencer . September 17, 2013 . 1:04am

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 included a DLC code that gave Naruto a Goku costume. If you want to see the opposite, Goku dressed as Sage Mode Naruto, pick up a first print copy of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z.



Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is different from other Dragon Ball fighting games. It’s a team based fighting game where characters are assigned in one of four roles. Siliconera spoke to producer Shuhei Sekii who explained how each character type works. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is slated for release next year on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PlayStation Vita.

    It looks half-Goku and half-Naruto. LOL!

  • Namuro

    Kishimoto-sensei must be thrilled LOL.

    But just imagine though… SSJ God Form + Sennin Mode + Kyuubi Chakra Mode…

    • yomachaser

      So a fox/frog dude made of fire but with a monkey tail and the whole thing is then on fire again!?

    • zaidandzhadow

      SS God is a shit really.

      • Namuro

        Well, just to match the Golden aura on the Kyuubi Chakra mode, how about SSJ3 instead then?

        But ya know, I’ve always liked SSJ3 form best! Even more than SSJ4 or any other fusion forms.

        • zaidandzhadow

          Of course, SSJ 3 & 4 fanboy over here (me)

    • Flamboyant Ass Nigga

      SS god is just a goku kaioken lv 3 imo.

      • Namuro

        Oh, is that how it is? I haven’t seen the film yet, so I thought the red hair thing is like a link to the red fur on SSJ4. With Goku looking the same, but redder, it makes sense that it’s a Kaio-ken technique.

        …Dang, I got spoiled right there… I’ve been dying to find out what the God form is all about…orz

  • Oni123

    the headband makes him look more like super saiyan Bardock =)

  • Flamboyant Ass Nigga

    It just dont fit.

    • Virevolte

      Well, I find it not bad. It gives to Goku’s wardrobe a little more variety.

    • RichyGaming

      GTA Lover, need I say what happens today?

      • zaidandzhadow

        Sliconera tastes player, need i say that your murica crap doesn’t go with us.

        • RichyGaming

          Siliconera tastes players? The fuck, dood…

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      it doesnt….

  • Well there’s something you don’t see everyday…Goku has toes…

    • Fox

      You do see that every day.

      My favorite “alternate” costume in every game is always Goku’s Namek outfit… where he’s barefoot.

      • Bobby Jennings


      • Maybe, but most of the time he’s wearing his boots. In fact, it’s rare for ANY Dragon Ball character to have their feet showing. Hence the joke.

        • The Watcher

          You were saying?

          • I said MOST of the time. Learn to read. Jeez. Can’t anyone take a joke?

          • Nanaki

            People react strongly to the littlest things. It can’t really be helped.

    • Guest

      Your point?

      • See those boots there? They are on his feet most of the time. It was a joke.

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      Ha, I guess he removed them since he is flying

  • Well, I think he looks more badass with that costume than Naruto does!
    Then again, this is Goku we’re talking about, I challenge you all to find a costume he’ll lose his coolness in wearing!! IMPOSSIBLE, RIGHT?!

    • RichyGaming

      A pink dress

      • He would then appeal more to fangirls, and potentially Chichi. I’d say he’s building character.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      make him wear woman swimsuit

      • I’d rather that instead of Boku no Pico, hell even I’d tap it.

    • erza’s bunny outfit?

      • That’s not so different than Inuyasha without ears! I’ve seen worse trap combinations on Valentines day >_>

  • Bobby Jennings

    Looks nice.

  • TheExile285

    I stlll think he looks badass

  • Syn

    Them PS2 graphics….so sexy..

  • fyi1191

    Gotta have,
    KA-ME-HA-ME- *teleport behind and* RASENGAN!

    Now, Vegeta/Trunks in Sasuke’s current outfit.

    • It would suit Vegeta better, imo.

  • D. Collins

    I just cannot get hype for this game. Dragon Ball Zenkai Battle Royal is something i could have gotten hype for.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Okay,That looks Awesome!
    Whats next Gintama?

  • Zertan

    So am I expecting Goku in Luffy’s outfit soon?

    • British_Otaku

      It’s been done if you count official figures and crossover merchandise.

      One Piece has had a crossover manga with Dragon Ball, multiple crossover anime projects and cross merchanising from figures to their movies and anime (Kai and One Piece, not the original one naturally – Look up “Dream 9”). Nowadays, I would expect to see Toriko content in either one given the marketing push by TOEI.


      It’s more bizarre that Namco Bandai who own the rights to nearly every cartoon license ever (exaggeration) on note in a gaming sense, don’t experiment more with crossovers in games set in a single universe like this one. They published Super Robot Wars, Namco X Capcom and Project X Zone after all, a few costumes from One Piece in a Dragon Ball game or Adventure Time nods in their Ben 10 games shouldn’t be much trouble at all. They definitely shouldn’t be expected to come at an extra cost to consumers, though I suppose they “can” do whatever they want and see if second week buyers pay up for a Naruto costume in spades.


  • Zonder88

    Kamehameha no Jutsu

  • fearlubu

    Its kind of weird seeing goku’s toes…

  • leingod

    That looks pretty cool, but I’m more curious about the gameplay…

  • fairysun

    The only cloth that fits Songoku very well.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    His head still looks like an autumm tree to me. Does the character have different animations with that outfit like Naruto in Storm 3?

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I rather have them swap outfits

    Gin-chan would be livin’ the dream.

    “It’s San Gigu !”

    • zaidandzhadow

      Fuck the jump there’s no more gintama anime :(

  • This article’s header image surged my power levels to critical.

  • Masengan

    It’s something Bardock would wear.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    When Goku put on the costume, little did he know that he would start suffering from numerous side effects. He started acting like an asshole to those around him, became a chain smoker and an unusually large fan of rowers and he kept hearing narrator voices in his head.


  • Suzaku

    For anyone curious, this and the Goku costume for Naruto in Storm 3 go back to a premium collaboration that Kishimoto and Toriyama did for Naruto’s 10th anniversary book.

    • Namuro

      That’s awesome! But looking at Naruto…it seems as if he’s constantly in Super Saiyan form in those clothes LOL.

  • vgbnd

    Only now do I realize how ridiculous Goku’s hair looks. The orange, red and yellow together doesn’t do it for me. He looks like an angry sunset.
