Namco-Bandai has announced that the upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z fighting game for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Vita will see its North American release 28 January 2014, within one week of its Japanese release.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z Launch Date Announced
Put on your Scouters and get your Super Saiyan Hair dos ready! NAMCO BANDAI Games America today announces that Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z will officially launch on January 28th, 2014 in the Americas for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita (digital only).
This newest chapter of the much loved Dragon Ball Z series of video games takes-on the classic Dragon Ball Z manga look with its clean/sharp lines and vivid colors; creating a much more stylized look and feel to all your favorite Dragon Ball Z characters and environments.
The single player campaign will feature expansive environments in which to wreak havoc and destruction upon enemies and bosses alike. Savvy players will utilize all of the character control features to guarantee their victory including the ability to issue team orders to attack, defend, or heal other team members. Players will also be able to take on the most hated and feared Dragon Ball Z enemies in co-op team play or take the battle online against other friends for up to eight players.
The company has also released a slew of new screen shots to promote the upcoming game, which showcase some of the new giant boss characters revealed this past week in Japan:
Worth noting to Kanzenshuu readers/listeners/fans is that the names of the Battle of Gods movie characters in the screen shot file names are “Beerus” and “Whis”, which follows suit with the style guide here at our site. None of the screen shots showcase the characters’ names written out within the game itself, however.
Additionally, the trailer provided alongside the screen shots — an update of the previous trailer with the new release date — specifically says “noChala”, which likely means that FLOW’s version of “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA” from Battle of Gods — which was showcased in the latest Japanese trailer for the game — will not make it into international versions.
