Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Z Demo Hits PS3 And Xbox 360

By Spencer . December 17, 2013 . 3:46pm

Namco Bandai released a demo of the team fighting game Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z. Players can choose characters like Goku, Kid Gohan, Krillin, and Piccolo. Unlike other Dragon Ball Z fighting games, battles are four on four fights and you can make a team of four Gokus.


The Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z demo has four missions to try in single player mode, a co-op mission, and battle mode. Save data from the demo transfers into the retail game which comes out on January 28, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Namco Bandai will also bring the Vita version over as a digital download.

    Playstation Blog Store Update says the Vita demo is up too.

  • TheExile285

    *Sigh* It’s out for Vita too.

    • Pdugna

      Feels nice on Vita….except the healing friends part were you touch a certain part of the screen to heal them….think it was upper left was 1, lower left is 2 and then then upper right is 3 and lower right is 4…funnily enough I played Krillin the most during the demo because he is support.

  • JonathanisPrimus

    I’m pretty sure the Vita version I’m playing right now exists ;)

  • Masa

    Everyone else’s thoughts on the demo? Was hoping it would be as good as the budokai games…., its not though, its pretty terrible.. :(

    • Byron Kerrison II

      Similar to Budokai Tenkaichi? Maybe.
      Similar to Originial Budokai? Nah.

      It’s not bad but I haven’t been able to play co-op or versus modes due to every match I join never starting (host is absent or match already started)

  • Nanaki

    It seems like an updated, more refined version of Dragon Ball Z: Sagas in terms of gameplay.

    • KnifeAndFork

      More like a take on the arcade game Zenkai Battle Royale, with DBZ Legends as sort of side inspiration

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    is the Vita demo available on other region PSN store, or is it NA only?

    • malek86

      EU demos are coming out tomorrow.

  • Billy Kostyra

    i just played the demo on the Vita ! and i find the gameplay is very similar to
    Dragon Ball Z Legends on the ps1 !! don’t you think ?

    I didn’t expected artdink to use the exact same sound effect for the boss warning as their macross game. Made me giddy.

    What do the bumpers/paddles mapped as on the consoles? Plus clicking the sticks? Just curious.

  • GameWinner

    Vita demo is out too. Played a good round. :3

  • Anthony Birken

    The comedy in that marriage chat during the Raditz fight~

  • Sergio BriceƱo

    Controls seem worse than you average DBZ game.

  • WolfDuo

    The games pretty decent. I could see it being really fun during online co-ops for major bosses on high difficulties.
