Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden Shows Off More Of Its Assist Characters



Last week, we got a closer look at Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden’s 3DS demo from Bandai Namco, played by a lady who goes by the name “Honda Cheese”. She’s back with some more footage from the demo of the upcoming fighter by Arc System Works.



Honda Cheese says that the previous video was more about the basics, and if you haven’t seen it yet, then you should probably check it out first. Since she mainly used Goku and Gohan last time, she’s going to go with Vegeta and Buu, along with more details on their movements.


This time, she starts out with Vegeta and goes up against Majin Buu, at the 1:43 mark of the video. Depending on which characters that are going up against each other, there will be different opening moments.


She demonstrates some of the assist characters like Mr. Satan, who shows up and misses his punch. Great Saiyaman shows up out of nowhere with a kick attack when called upon. Recoome shoots a beam and is said to be easy to use. Korin helps out with a Senzu Bean that recovers your health.


We get to see some of Vegeta’s moves in the next part, where he goes from a combo into his Final Flash. Majin Buu counters back with his own special attack, and you’ll need to go through a button mash energy struggle to decide who takes the hit.


Then, at the 5:05 mark, she plays as Majin Buu and goes with the other four set of assist characters. We saw Turtle earlier while Honda Cheese played as Vegeta, and he basically just shows up to walk slowly across the screen to get in the way.


Tien Shinhan shoots his Tri-Beam from above, and the timing for it is important. Oob’s laser beam turns opponents into a chocolate bar, which momentarily leaves them open to attacks. Finally, Mercenary Tao drops down with a pillar, which can also be used to guard.


Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden will release in Japan on June 11, 2015 for Nintendo 3DS.
