Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden, the Nintendo 3DS exclusive fighting game based on the popular series created by Akira Toriyama, is getting very close to release now. With the Arc System Works developed fighting game launching in less than a month, it’s not susprising for Nintendo to announce that the game will be available for pre-purchase and pre-load very soon on the European 3DS eShop.
From October 1st, players with access to the European 3DS eShop will finally be able to pre-order Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden and start pre-loading it so that it can be played as soon as the official release day arrives. All those who pre-order Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden on the European 3DS eShop will also receive an exclusive 3DS Home Theme as well as the Super Nintendo game Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden 2. The pre-loaded game will be unlocked on October 16th.
Earlier this month new Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden English footage has emerged online. The footage has been taken from a Bandai Namco promotional event and showcases several playable characters such as Goku, Gohan, Gotenks, Raditz and more.
A few weeks ago a Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden playable demo has been made available for download on the eShop. The demo features a few playable characters and several Z-Assist ones, allowing players to try out some of the features of the game. If you haven’t downloaded the demo yet and want to learn more about the upcoming Dragon Ball Z game right now, you may want to check out a gameplay video taken from the currently available demo.
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is now available in Japan exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. The game will be released on October 16th in Europe and a few days later, on October 20th, in North America.
