Dragonball Kai Anime Launches With DS Game


For Dragonball Z’s 20th anniversary Toei is remastering the series and cutting the fat to make Dragon Ball Kai. The anime will air in Japan on April 5. Namco Bandai quick to capitalize on the situation bumped Dragonball Kai: Saiyan Raishuu from a late May release to April 29.


Unlike other Dragonball games this isn’t a fighting game. It’s a Dragonball RPG is set during the first arc of the series and includes an original story. Players control Goku and a team of other characters that can link up for Sparking combo attacks, some of which are originally created for the game. In battles you have three party members that can be swapped out with reserve members. Switching characters is one the battle system’s seven commands. The others are: fight, technique, ultimate, item, run, and endure. Beat up enemies and customize your stats to make a powerful fighter, a speedy fighter or a support character. I wonder what it would be like to play the entire game with Goku as a support character feeding healing items to Krillin.
