This week’s April 2016 issue of V-Jump in Japan provides new updates on the forthcoming Dragon Ball: Project Fusion video game for the Nintendo 3DS.


The main character and “Pinijji” will travel throughout the game world, which consists of a fusion of various times and places from the series. The mystery behind how the world ended up like this is will be a key part of the story. Since time and space are all jumbled up, you can potentially run into any character from any point in the series (which, allows — for example — Dragon Ball GT-era Pan and Boo-era Videl to coexist, etc). As the hero you will recruit characters into your party, which you can then fuse together. Even fusions that would normally be impossible are enabled by the mysterious armband the characters wear. The main character will also be able to fuse with Pinijji. The promotion provides a tiny glimpse of the Broli/Goku fusion, who is hyped up as being potentially more powerful than Vegetto. In one of the screenshots, Trunks tells you that you should “gather energy” by recruiting more allies. The promotional manga tie-in — set for serialization in Saikyō Jump — starts in May, and the deadline for fan-made fusion submissions is 18 March 2016.

The Project Fusion video game for the Nintendo 3DS, developed by Ganbarion, is scheduled for a nebulous 2016 release in Japan. A teaser website is open at

    So… I guess back in the 2000’s, it was all about recreating the story (to death). Now it’s all about warping it around. I guess this new approach is fine… *if* done correctly. At least it’s something different.
