“Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans” Remake Coming
Published by 19 June 2010, 10:03 PM EDT

Almost exactly one month ago, our favorite inside-source, “Wasted Wisher“, told us that they were being put to work on approximately thirty minutes of new, traditional 2D animation for an undetermined, upcoming video game for the franchise.

Well, today we learned a little bit more about that project. As per his post on our forum:

Hey there, folks. Remember when I told you guys Toei would be making new animation cutscenes for a new Dragonball game, and I didn’t have a clue which game it would be for?

Well, now I know. The new animation is for a remake/ re-release of “The Plot to Exterminate the Saiyans”. The key animators finally received their first pieces of work for the new game, so I figured it out upon seeing the character models and layouts scanned from the original video.

According to my co-worker, he said the frame size for the animation was rather small, so it will most likely come out for a portable game system. (Maybe this is the Dragonball game slotted for the 3DS?) Other than that, I have no idea as to how the game is going to look like.

Oh, and one more thing…unlike in Dragonball Kai, where the new animation is basically just re-traced from the old footage, the animation here is all-new from the ground up. They’ll still be using scans of the old video for the layouts, but that’s just for reference (camera angles, positioning, etc.). As far as the actual animation is concerned, it’s being re-built from scratch.
