Dragon Ball

In the past few months a few new games based on the popular Dragon Ball series have been made available on a variety of formats. Aside from the home consoles and PC game Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Bandai Namco has released two other games based on the series on Nintendo 3DS – Dragon Ball Heroes Ultimate Mission 2 and Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden, a 2D fighting game developed by Arc System Works. Earlier today the Japanese publisher has confirmed that a new compilation release will be coming next month in Japan, including the two Nintendo 3DS games.

The new release will be called Dragon Ball Extreme Heroes W Pack and it will include the already mentioned Dragon Ball Heroes Ultimate Mission 2 and Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden. The pack will be released in Japan on December 17th for the price of 10,280 yen.

Of the two Nintendo 3DS games based on the popular series by Akira Toriyama included in the new release, only Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden has been launched in North America and Europe. The game is an excellent 2D fighting game developed by Arc System Works, the team behing the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series, featuring an interesting gameplay experience and several playable characters taken from the series such as Son Goku, Son Gohan, Vegeta, Frieza, Cell and others.

The Western release of Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden has also come with an interesting pre-order bonus. All those who pre-ordered the game have received one of the previous entries of the series, Dragon Ball Z Super Butoden 2, for free. The game has been originally released on Nintendo SNES years ago and features a rather interesting gameplay experience.

The Dragon Ball Extreme Heroes W Pack will be released in Japan on December 17th. Of the two included games, only Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden is now available in North America and Europe.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
