Is Namco Bandai Charging Up For Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Butouden?


imageIt appears Namco Bandai has a new line of Dragon Ball games in the works. The publisher filed a trademark for Ultimate Butouden in Japan, which screams Dragon Ball Z.


Actually, Namco Bandai had a Dragon Ball Butouden series in the past. Three Dragon Ball Z: Super Butouden title were released for the Super Famicom. The last Dragon Ball game to bear a Butouden subtitle was Dragon Ball Z: Shin Butouden for the Sega Saturn.


Namco Bandai also registered Zenkai Battle Royale. Since "Zenkai" is a Saiyan-only power we’re guessing that’s going to be for another Dragon Ball game.


So, what system(s) do you think Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale and Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Butouden will be on? I recall Namco Bandai had a Dragon Ball game in their tentative 3DS line up. *checks* Yup, they do.
