Namco-Bandai Unveils “Dragon Ball Game Project Age 2011”
Published by 11 May 2011, 9:52 AM EDT

While the rest of the Internet is busy talking about SoulCalibur V (which is admittedly pretty exciting), those of us following along with the Dragon Ball franchise have been waiting for additional tidbits on the so-called Game Project Age 2011, first revealed in Jump this past week.

The game was further unveiled by Namco-Bandai at their “Level Up” event in Dubai today. Details are still pretty scarce, but we at least have a teaser trailer!

What we do know is that “Game Project Age 2011” is indeed a working title and is subject to change. Additionally, FUNimation’s logo is present at the end of this first trailer, and Namco-Bandai US is already making these assets available to their associates, so the game is essentially confirmed for North American distribution.

Check out a couple new screen shots below:

As for a little speculation on our part, the game appears to have a different HUD from Zenkai Battle Royale (currently only in Japanese arcades), and while it will be another 3D action/fighting game, it does appear to be slightly different from the Sparking! and Raging Blast games from the last half decade, particularly with hints of a grappling system at close range. The trailer does end with a pretty fantastic shot of Goku in front of an enormous Ôzaru, so the prior claims of being faithful and as realistic to the source material as possible certainly seem more in reach than ever before.

As always, we will continue to update as we get more information about the game!
