    The sprites look nice, the game looks alright at worst and I really like DB, but another iPhone game… >_> I knew something was up with the title and image not being clear, but… Oh well, I’ve still got Hard Mode of DB:AA and Origins 1 + 2 to finish.

    • GH56734

      I wish there was Origins 3 as well, to tie the remaining loose threads and finish Young Goku’s story… But that’s very unlikely to happen :(

  • So…this will be an episodic title covering the entire manga or is this a standalone RPG?
    I’m quite interested how this could go. Looks like Attack of the Saiyans but with the entire early DB story.

  • While I’d rather see them finish Origins on the 3DS, it’s pretty cool to have a Dragon Ball game that covers mostly everything.

    Can you imagine if Raditz took a time machine back to the past and met chibi Goku? Yea, not so tough now, are ya brother!?

  • OlimacFTW

    There are good developers and sadly, they are wasting their talent making games for smartphones.

    • That’s where the money is these days. I’d love to buy it on 3DS instead. If they did episodes at $4 a pop, that would be a lot of fun.

      I really like the 16bit look the game has

  • Ty Austin

    I was concerned they were going to abandon the RPG style they took with Attack of the Saiyans. Kind of hoping for a sequel, but I’ll take a prequel.

    I’m just sick of the all the freakin’ fighting games.

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    Bulma fighting?!

  • this sprite art style reminds me of that awesome Dragon Ball Adventure game for GBA

    • ElAbuelo69

      who’s dat hot cop?

      • Its Kiruko from Shinmai Fukei Kiruko-san

        • ElAbuelo69

          thanks bro :D

  • Happy Gamer

    The old school, pre Raditz dragon makes such a great RPG world. The sheer amount of places Goku visits, Capsule technology, lore etc. As a kid I loved the older Goku super Saiyan arcs, but looking bad, the “original” Dragon Ball was so much more creative and fun.

  • WolfDuo

    Don’t see why that haven’t just brought out a Dragon ball / dbz RPG. It’s not like people haven’t been asking since the 90’s.

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans, developed by Monolithsoft evidently does not exist. Forget about the Legacy of Goku trilogy as well …

      • WolfDuo

        Yea.. That’d be true IF I was talking about hand helds.. I’m talking about next gen consoles like 360/ps3

        • JonathanisPrimus

          At no point did you mention home consoles in the post I replied to.

          As an aside, PS3 and 360 aren’t next gen consoles anymore. PS4, and Xbox One are their successors.

  • They should seriously make a hardcore console Dragon Ball RPG. With Kid Goku of course. Getting a bit tired of DBZ games honestly.
