Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Z Has Fighters From Cooler’s Revenge And Other DBZ Movies

By Spencer . November 21, 2013 . 2:13am

When Namco Bandai announced Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z they confirmed characters from the latest Dragon Ball Z movie Battle of the Gods would be in it. The game also has Cooler from Dragon Ball Z: Cooler’s Revenge and Legendary Super Saiyan Broly from Dragon Ball Z: Broly – The Legendary Super Saiyan.


Each form is considered one "character" in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z which explains why there are three different Coolers you can play as.

    they should make a DBZ RPG for 3DS

  • TheExile285

    But no GT characters ;_;

    At least there’s Brolly, I guess :/

    • JonathanisPrimus

      I remember watching an interview with the game’s producer, and when asked he went “Do you like GT?” and the person declined. GT isn’t nearly as bad as the majority of the movies.

      • Bobby Jennings


      • Sardorim

        So true. Many of the movies weren’t all that great. Such as that Tarble Movie. Ugh.

        Many would love to play as SSJ4 again on consoles.

    • luckgandor

      Sometimes, I fantasize about Pan being a playable character. I know she has been playable in a few instances in the past, but there’s a clear lack of GT love overall and it’s disappointing.

      • TheExile285

        Pan was playable in DBZ Infinite World for PS2. Her move set was kind of meh IMO though.

        • luckgandor

          I feel like she should have been playable in every DB fighting game going forward. And while not canon, giving her a secret super saiyan form would be really cool. I don’t know how other fans would take it, but I grew up watching DB, DBZ, and DBGT and I would love it.

      GT has some…good charcters like the ss4’s and omega shenron but GT wasn’t made by the original person of DB and DBZ so maybe that’s why we don’t see a lot of GT characters on games and you gotta admit, GT wasn’t that good even hardcore fans didn’t like GT besides the ss4’s and omega shenron.

  • Zangetsu777

    If this is the last DBZ game on current generation. They should at least give us most/all of the characters. And I mean all the characters from Dragonball, Dragon Ball Z, & Dragon Ball GT.

    • fearlubu

      Hopefully nothing from GT now that its no longer canon.

    • Koibito888

      They really don’t need to. First off PS3 still has like 3 years of life left, there is plenty room for more. Second, they made the right choice sticking to Z and not GT. There are a few who want those yes but the greater population of fans do not care about GT and they took that into account so good on them. The idea with this game is not at all to pump out the next game with more characters but to try something new, make transformations play different enough (finally) and to solidify a new foundation for further games to play off of if this one succeeds. Plus there are not that many DB characters that compare well to DBZ characters in one game.

  • Kaihedgie

    Wait wha? Whis is playable?

    • Bobby Jennings

      This. I’m hella excited for and will be using him.

  • The Watcher

    Not gonna lie, I scrolled down a bit and saw for a quick second that Cooler was flipping the bird.

  • fairysun

    Nice, Broly !!
    Always love his brutal fighting technique.

  • Sardorim

    Great. We can get a couple of movie villains but we gotta pay extra for Super Vegito who actually appeared in the manga during a major Saga called the Buu Saga!

    Where’s Buutenks?!

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      To the developers’ credit they know nobody cares about Android 13 so they put Vegito as extra to get more money.

    • Dinoegg96

      Actually, Super Vegito is a pre-order DLC, so you don’t have to pay extra for him

    • Husky Davies

      When Vegito has been in previous games that were much better than this…

  • Spirit Macardi

    Dear lord, I’m hoping now that they actually get Chris Guerrero (aka General Ivan) to voice Cooler instead of the person who played him originally!

    Yeah he was only the voice of him in the Abridged Series, but the thing is he’s also an official VA with Funimation. He’s played the Narrator in Toriko, some bit parts in One Piece, and the short guild leader who hits on Erza in Fairy Tail.

    • British_Otaku

      That’s only going to happen if you are lucky that Andrew Chandler isn’t available at all AND they don’t pick someone else who is frequently available (due to Chris making a good impression, being favoured by the voice director or something.

      It isn’t impossible like I thought when I was up to the “Abridged Series” part of your post, especially if he is in the States, in Texas and works with FUNimation frequently.

      There will be some backlash of course over the streams being crossed.

  • Wouldn’t it be more efficient to say who’s not gonna make the cut? “New Character” info is about all we’re getting, but I won’t deny it’s a little repetitive seeing as we”ve had a roster the size of the Tenkaichi games for example.

    Still though, I really like the direction this game is taking, I hope that it plays just as well when the time comes! It’s been too long since we’ve had a really good DBZ experience.

    • British_Otaku

      You are British if I recall correctly, so you didn’t get a chance to play this game at the MCM Expo earlier this year in October? >_> Then again I guess I live in London and I would be too lazy to travel to Birmingham to play something or get a less important signing.

      And yes, the character line up isn’t really surprising anyone when Broly and Cooler are mainstays and people are on edge for things like DB or GT content or more obscure characters. Tenkaichi spoilt us, but having standards isn’t so bad even if we lash out over a single character sometimes. :P

      • Yep! I’m indeed British! But… I’m all alone… in Scotland… IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE IMPORTANT. Then again Scotland is getting two days of Comic Con next year, so it’s not all doom and gloom!

        For me personally, going to London would be more trouble than it’s worth and expensive, else I’d have totally went earlier this year. They get so much more on show than what I had gotten – Goodsmile went… GOODSMILE!! I was mad… Yet despite being limited, I did spent £117.40….

  • Husky Davies

    Interesting concept. Now when are they releasing a real -and complete- DBZ game? Been waiting since PS3 launch. They got so close with RB2 and suddenly they decide to quit the series and go with this and that Ultimate Tenkaichi crap -_-

  • Vash bane

    NOOOO! lol ssj broly a ki type :( … still going to use him though XD
