2015 will be remembered as a really good year for Dragon Ball fans, with the release of the new anime series Dragon Ball Super and multiple video games featuring Son Goku, Vegeta and other characters from the popular series created by Akira Toriyama.
Later this year a really interesting fighting game based on the series is going to be released in North America and Europe on Nintendo 3DS. The game, Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden, promises to be a really good game even for those who aren’t fans of Dragon Ball, as the game has been developed by the team behind other popular fighting games such as the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series, Arc System Works.
A few days ago a Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden playable demo has been made available on the North American 3DS eShop, featuring a variety of playable and support characters. If you cannot download the demo and just want to see how the game plays, you may want to check out a gameplay video taken from the demo which has surfaced online recently. You can take a look at the video right below.
Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden comes with plenty of Z-Assist character that can be summoned during a match to keep the combo going and more. Some of these characters aren’t available from the start and have to be unlocked in a variety of ways, such as Yakon, who can only be unlocked through a special promotion now available in Japan. We don’t know if these characters will be unlocked straight away in the Western release, but we will definitely hear more about the matter very soon.
Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden is now available in Japan exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. The game will be released later this year in North America and Europe.
