No 3DS Game In First Half of 2011?
Published by 13 January 2011, 9:30 AM EST

Almost immediately after Nintendo unveiled the upcoming 3DS at the most recent Electronic Entertainment Exposition (E3), Namco-Bandai announced they would release a Dragon Ball game for the platform. No specific title or even time frame was given. Nintendo has unveiled their tentative 3DS game release schedule through Spring 2011, and no Dragon Ball game appears on the list (though the recently-revealed Naruto 3DS game is on there).

The next game due out for the franchise is Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butōden, a fighting game for the existing Nintendo DS, dropping in Japan 03 February 2011 for ¥5040. The game has not been announced for distribution outside of Japan just yet. The game is available for pre-order on CDJapan and Play-Asia — note that standard Nintendo DS games are region free (though it sounds like 3DS games will not be), so rest assured that you can import and play Ultimate Butōden on your system, though the text will be entirely in Japanese, as should be expected.
