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.
