“Dragon Ball Game Project Age 2011” (PS3/360) Announced
Published by 08 May 2011, 9:58 PM EDT

About a week ago, word began to leak around that a new video game would be announced in an upcoming issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump in Japan, with a Tales blog naming it as “Dragon Ball Game Project Age 2011”. This week, the game was officially unveiled in Jump:

Indeed titled Dragon Ball Game Project Age 2011 (at least temporarily), the new game is due out sometime later this year in the fall for both the PS3 and Xbox 360 from Namco-Bandai, and will be another 3D action/fighting game. No developer is currently listed, and details are rather sparse. As per the norm for Japanese announcements, the initial showcase says absolutely nothing of any real interest of substance:

(under “scoop”)
Drawing extreme DB action with super visuals!!
So INTENSE, you’ll be amazed! It’s the advent of a new style, with thoroughly recreated DB battle scenes on a gorgeous screen!!

You’ll feel like you’re really there, as never before!!
The facial expressions are super realistic, and the field goes flying!! The intense production really heats up the game!!

Autumn 2011
The battle begins on PS3 and Xbox 360!

(under the title information)
The project to take DB games to the extreme is set in motion!! The warriors’ battles enter a new dimension!!

(over bottom picture)
ACTION! DRAMA! SCALE! All these together create a super-class [of game]!!

[WHAT IS Dragon Ball Game Project AGE 2011?!]
It’s the project to create a new DB game, the likes of which no one has ever seen. By pursuing the most accurate recreation of the characters ever, we aim to make it the most lifelike!! Super anticipation!!

It appears to be an entirely new game (rather than a home port of, say, Zenkai Battle Royale currently in Japanese arcades). To be honest, however, any of this verbiage could have been pulled from any game announcement ever for the franchise. We will simply have to wait and see if any of this talk about realism and character expressions chalks up to anything.
