The official PlayStation Blog announced today that the latest game for the franchise, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, was the best-selling digital game on the Vita in North America for the month of February 2014.
It is very difficult — especially compared to the reporting within Japan — to get concrete sales figures for video games in North America, particularly with licensed products like this, and even more particularly with digital sales. Regardless, it is surprising to see Battle of Z jump so high up the list, no doubt due in part to its reduced $31.99 launch price for PlayStation Plus members.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z was released worldwide at the end of January for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Vita. First-pressings (of physical releases) in all territories come packed with a download code for Son Goku in his Naruto “Sage Mode”. A playable demo of the game is available worldwide. The UK branch of Bandai Namco has promised downloadable content for the Vita version specifically that enables the Japanese voice cast in the game, which is otherwise only available as a selectable option in the console versions.
