This week’s 2013 #47 issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump as well as today’s December 2013 issue of V-Jump in Japan finally reveal a release date — 23 January 2014 — for the Dragon Ball franchise’s next mainline fighting game outing, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z.
Namco-Bandai has yet to reveal a release date for international (specifically North American and European) versions of the game, though we do already know that the Vita version will be digital-only in our own territory.
Additionally, today’s issue of V-Jump reveals more of the giant boss characters that players will battle against in the game:
Ōzaru Bardock, Hildegarn, as well as the “core” version of Metal Coola join the fray in Battle of Z!
Namco-Bandai also released the second full-length promotional video for the game, which showcases much of what was already seen in the most recent English video, but also showcases FLOW’s version of “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” and provides the game’s pricing structure.
On the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the game will run ¥7,480, with the Vita version running ¥6,480.
