Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Z Shows Us A Gotenks & Buu Team And Twice The Tien

By Spencer . January 23, 2014 . 2:02am

All fights in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z put players in a four fighter squad. You can make interesting combinations like putting Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks on the same team with Kid Buu or a group with two Tiens. Here’s a look at some of the parties Namco Bandai suggests for the game.


Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z comes out this week on PS3, Xbox 360, and Vita in Japan and Europe. North America gets it next week.

    No love for Yamcha ;_;

    • Shippoyasha

      At least we all remember Yamcha’s infamous scene

      • TheExile285


    • Remember in Budokai 3? “WooOOOooolf Fang Fist!” Does less damage than one of Goku’s punches.

  • Torraint

    they can pick kamesennin for the fourth bald character instead of 2 tiens

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      technically, Tien can split into 4 bodies so it’s not that weird after all

    • tarbis

      or Piccolo

  • Two Tiens, Krillin and Nappa. The ultimate bald team.

  • Derry Santoso

    Whats the point? Theres no VS CPU/ offline free battle mode in this game!!

    • TheExile285

      What’s the point of what? Its obvious this is a MP centered game >_>

      • luckgandor

        An offline vs AI mode is an extremely important aspect of a portable fighting game. It lets you pick it up where ever you are, makes it easier for trying things out, and overall it’s just a really convenient feature to have for those times when you just feel like pummeling the AI for a brief 5 minutes. Omitting it is a poor design choice.

        • TheExile285

          While I agree with that, this isn’t a Vita exclusive. Also, where exactly was it confirmed the game wouldn’t have any offline options outside of Story mode?

          • luckgandor


            “The game’s only single player mode has you punch, kick, and blast your way through the usual sagas…” In any case, what I really want is a DBZ game with a roster as large as Budokai Tenkaichi 3’s.

          • TheExile285

            Well that is disappointing, Thanks for the review though.

      2014 and people still don’t have internet the slightest bit of internet?

      • British_Otaku

        What if two people are in the same house and want a good lag less match, where they can punch their friend for cheating, chat and all… It means if a friend comes over and wants to play something, it is basically worthless.

        99.999% of my fighting game time have been played with local multiplayer (not just because online is recent, even now it isn’t that different), often with friends, cousins and siblings.

        It’s not the fact we people don’t have net: it’s the fact people don’t gave good speedy net for online games, especially in America. Heck, I know waaaay too many people using their phones to get a bootleg wifi signal. And mainly that comes from people not having a net provided in their area in most cases.

        • leingod

          And some people just don’t CARE about online. I know I don’t.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    to bad the gameplay felt like Sagas

  • Jrocy247

    Sooooo…I can safely assume this goes up to Buu Saga, I question why Super Vegeta is DLC?…Or was it Vegito?

    • tarbis

      That should be Vegito. I believe it was a typo.

  • leingod

    Played it for a while, and totally disliked it. A shame, I was kinda hyped for the game, but its multiplayer-centric gameplay just doesn’t appeal to me :(
