Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden

2015 is a really good year for fans of the Dragon Ball series, with a new video game based on it released earlier this year, Dragon Ball Xenogears, and another one that will be released on Nintendo 3DS later this year called Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden. The game, which is the latest entry of a series that’s been going on for quite some time, has been developed by Arc System Works, a team that fans of fighting game surely know as it’s the team behind excellent fighting games such as the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series.

If you have never heard of Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden before and would like to see the game in action, you definitely need to check out a brand new trailer which has been released earlier today during the Japan Expo 2015.  The trailer, which can be found by going at the end of this post, showcases several playable characters such as series protagonist Son Goku, assist characters, gameplay features and mechanics and more.

Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden has been released in Japan last month and a playable demo has also been made available a few days before release. The demo includes playable characters Goku, Kid Gohan, Vegeta, and Majin Buu, and support characters Tien, Recoome, Korin, Turtle, Super Uub, Mercenary Tao, Hercule, and The Great Saiyaman. Save data from the demo also allows players to unlock Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Goku in the full game. Unfortunately we don’t know if or when the demo will be available in the West but we will surely hear more about it as we get closer to October, when the game launches in North America and Europe.

Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is now available in Japan exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. The game will be released on October 16th in Europe, Middle-East and Australia and on October 20th in North America.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
