    Just copy Budokai 3 and call it a day. I’d buy it. Though if the environments are that detailed, it’s probably a Tenkaichi type and I never really cared for those.

      I just want the arcade DBZ game. I don’t like the tenkaichi series but Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale isn’t the tenkaichi series but it is free roaming.

      • Hakai Ouji Vegeta #BADMAN

        It’s still developed by Spike Chunsoft… just waayyyy better.

    • Makoto Yuki

      Yep Budokai 3 is the best DBZ game, Tenkaichi is good but I don’t like the split screen when playing with friends

      • MaskedHeroxx

        split screen was jus fine I beat u jus lost alot

      • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

        Budokai 3 was my shit son! Ahhhh the memories of playing every day during the summer of 6th grade….I miss those days. Tenkaichi 2 was probably the best and only good one out of the series. 1st was kinda poor and the 3rd had too many clones, condensed story and just fell flat after a while.

        • I freaking loved Tenkaichi 2 back in middle school! Those were the freaking days, bro!

    • MaskedHeroxx

      Budokais were alsome I got them all but that Tenkaichi.when playing on a high level that game was the best and anybody who says it wasent obviously wasent that good

      • samsneeze

        Yes, because a person’s skill level directly dictates the overall quality of a game, not the game mechanics themselves.

        • MaskedHeroxx

          It dose bcus if your good enff you will know how to bring out the best in your characters & game mechanics

    • WolfDuo

      Thats too easy for them. If they did that, they’d have nothing to create for their next release… I personally think they bring out incomplete games, so that they have something to bring out each year.

  • Masa

    I’m still hoping for the day these games have a story mode built around a custom character where you can be a hero or villain but i’m guessing this will be the same old game we always get, same story told over again and an awful combat system………

    Sucks being a huge DB fan, when will we get a good damn game!

    • Ann Weschenfeller

      Super Dragon Ball Z, Advance Adventure, Sparking Meteor and Attack of the Saiyans were decent games, among others…

      • Anime10121

        As much as I wanted to like Super DBZ, I just couldnt, it played horribly to me. It was advetised to me as a DBZ game that played like Street Fighter (my favorite fighter) and it failed to live up to that :(

        Never cared for any of the others you listed though… Well I did like Advanced

        • Ann Weschenfeller

          Well, true, it wasn’t a truly competitive fighter at all, but I still enjoyed it. As for Attack of the Saiyans, it was nice seeing a SNES-like RPG with Dragon Ball and no silly card combat system. Really enjoyed it even if it lacked overgame or NG+.

          • Anime10121

            I wanted to like Attack of the Saiyans, my younger bro bought it for his Wii? Gamecube? cant really remember what it released on, I just remember it not being all that fun to me (he loved it though, but he was a straight away DBZ fanboy) :P

          • Ann Weschenfeller

            It was released for DS only…sold way too little to have a sequel, sadly :(

          • Anime10121

            Ok, I looked it up, that one I’ve never played. I was thinking about DBZ Sagas with my comment!

          • Ann Weschenfeller

            Oh my god hahaha …Sagas was just painful! You should really try AOTS then.

          • Anime10121

            I might later on…gotta catch up on the backlogue of stuff I already have first :)

          • WolfDuo

            Yea, definitely try AOTS. If you like RPG’s, then you’ll like it. It’s a pretty well rounded game.

  • David García Abril

    I thought that at this time they would make it next-gen only.

    But then again, considering how expensive making games is in this day and age, I guess it’s for the best.

    • Ann Weschenfeller

      I know it’s selfish, but I’m happy about it. I’m forcing myself into not getting a PS4 until my 360 backlog is all gone, and I’d hate missing this one.

  • Ann Weschenfeller

    So far (and I’m crossing fingers here) it looks good. I dig the Dragon Ball Online flavor it seems to have, too. I hope they let us create female Saiyans, as well as Nameks and Majins this time, just like DBO.

  • Shippoyasha

    I just wish that the shadows look a tad bit lighter to make it look more cartoony.

    • Ann Weschenfeller

      True that…it looks good, but a little bit plastic like. I loved the shaders they used in Ultimate Tenkaichi, more like Kanzenban cover style.

    • Samuel

      Pretty sure this is pre-alpha footage, the environment’s look really bad. Those rocks in the third picture look like they came from the PS2 Era. The character models look great, pretty sure the final product will look amazing its the gameplay that I’m worried about.

  • Kaien

    The 2nd screenshot has no link to bigger version.

  • Shady Shariest

    I think they have made some weird choices… Looking at the list Xbox One is not mentioned… Even tough it would take minor-medium effort into making the same build work on one.

    • Ann Weschenfeller

      XBox One isn’t sold at Japan yet…I guess that’s the main reason.

      • Shady Shariest

        AAAAAAAAAAAAAA. I keep forgetting about that!
        It isn’t sold here either yet :X

    • Anime10121

      Probably aint listed because the Xbone aint available in Japan yet, and its a japanese teaser site.

      • Shady Shariest

        Yes. That. Might…Be it… Maybe. ;x My memory…

  • Kornelious

    Well….Hopefully because it’s on the PS4 it might have a an actually GOOD battle system….But we will have to see…..

    • MaskedHeroxx

      I agree …im hype all the was until I actually play it and decide if the battle system is good, if not ill be hype for the next on (repeat)

    • WolfDuo

      Well, as long as they don’t over-simplify the buttons for the game. Games like UT are a insult to fighting games.

    • British_Otaku

      There were good battle systems designed for GBA and SNES Dragon Ball games, we have every reason to think the system may get worse given their record with the 7th generation.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    playable Scrooge Mcduck please

  • kenshinx13

    So help me there better be couch multiplayer this time or I will give up. It’s a (sort of) fighting game, there is no excuse for no couch multiplayer

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Budokai was a good fighter but Tenkaichi had the genuine DBZ feel. Hope the game gets to be more like that. Anyway, on that screenshot, a red-haired dude, maybe a custom character?

  • Sachiko Shinozaki

    No one wants a DBZ Ultimate Tenkaichi 2. Give us Raging Blast 3.

  • Hiro Oozora

    Can we get another Super DBZ please

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I see a custom fighter unless thats God Mode Trunks XD

    I kinda hope they do something new with the story….. 50 games of the same thing got olddddddddddddddddd

  • Mika Moreno

    I like the way it looks so far! But i really hope it’s not another fighting game, there’s enough of those already…

  • KrazyBean

    Tenkaichi 3 was like the last genuinely amazing DBZ game I played. Burst Limit and Raging Blast 1 were alright but all the games after these…meh.

    I’m still cautiously optimistic for this game. The graphics look nice but I personally would love a DBZ game with Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm graphics. Of course, graphics don’t mean a thing if the game plays like ass.

  • RunningWild1984

    We need Arc System Works to make another DragonBall Z game. With 2D HD sprites.

  • Matty

    Well since PC is getting these amazing Naruto games from Bandai Namco.. I guess I can hold a shred of hope PC could get this game.

  • TalesOfBS

    PS4 and no Wii U port?
    Well, getting it on 360 or maybe not getting it at all. I see no reason why they are going for a 500k install base and ignoring a almost 2 million one.
