The Japanese version of the demo allowed players to carry over progress to the retail version of the game, along with unlocking “Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan” Son Goku from Revival of “F” as a playable character.
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden launched in Japan 11 June 2015. First-press copies of the game come packed with bonus content, including a downloadable version of the Super Famicom game Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden 2 (previously included as a part of the J-Legend Retsuden compilation game; albeit now with replacement music). Arc System Works developed the game for Bandai Namco. The developer previously worked on the Bukū… / Supersonic Warriors games on the Nintendo GameBoy Advance and DS.
The game will be available in Europe 16 October 2015, in North and Latin America 20 October 2015, and in Brazil 23 October 2015. In America, Super Butōden 2 will be an Amazon exclusive pre-order bonus, while six Z-Assist characters will be available for all pre-order customers.
