Anime News Network has updated with some more coverage from Anime Expo. At FUNimation’s panel, among other things, it was announced that “Budokai 2” (which is set for an August 15th release date for the PS2), will be using “Toriyama Shading”. We have all seen images which show the game will be cel-shaded, but I find it interesting they are calling it “Toriyama Shading” as a specific type of branding.
