‘Dragon Ball Z(R): Infinite World’ Goes Gold

– Development Complete on Final Dragon Ball Z Game for PlayStation 2 System that Combines the Greatest Elements from the World-renowned Dragon Ball Z Series –

NEW YORK, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Atari announced today that the development of the ultimate PlayStation(R)2 system Dragon Ball Z game, Dragon Ball Z(R): Infinite World, is complete! Representing the last “Z” title for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system, Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World combines many of the best elements from the previous Budokai and Shin-Budokai series, as well as the recently released and much-admired next-gen Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit, to deliver the definitive DBZ experience on the PlayStation(R)2 system. Moreover, Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World will boast several special features including “Dragon Missions”, new battle types, and dramatic cut scenes that enable fans to delve deeper than ever before into the Dragon Ball Z universe. Developed by NAMCO BANDAI Games, Inc. and rated T for Teen, Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World will be available in North American retailers on November 4, 2008 for the suggested price of $29.99.

The new “Dragon Missions” in Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World will include many famous scenes from the Dragon Ball Z series never before seen in a video game. A range of missions from time attack in the “Snake Road Mission” alongside other action and racing-style missions puts players’ strategy and quick-thinking skills to the test beyond simply showing off their deadly fighting skills.

But no Dragon Ball Z game would be complete without its fair share of spectacular battles. Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World uses a simplified battle system taken from the recently released next-gen Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit for thrilling hand-to-hand fighting on the ground, or flying leaps and aerial combat in the skies. Defeat your opponent by blasting damaging Ki attacks from the sky or by diving into him and launching an explosive smash attack.

The game features over 40 unique characters, not counting the various character transformations which multiply the playing potential. On top of characters, fighting techniques and battle stages, Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World also includes selected drama scenes from the previous games all presented using beautifully refined effects and shading techniques.

Dragon Ball Z marks the gold standard of anime-based video games. The catalog is currently comprised of over 30 games that have sold more than 12.7 million units since May 2002.
