Rumor Guide Update: Additional Ozotto Video Game Plans
Published by 14 March 2016, 2:34 PM EDT

As noted during Episode #0398 of our podcast, the original Japanese Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn discs for 1996’s Idainaru Dragon Ball Densetsu actually contain text files with stories, reflections, and funny anecdotes from the game’s development staff. In the text file, Graphic Artist “N” notes, while discussing the various characters unfortunately left out of the game:

Apart from that, we had designs on putting in Gogeta, Majin Ozotto, or even an original character (designed by the great Toriyama-sensei, natch), but due to the constraints of the schedule, we ever so regretfully had no choice but to abandon them.

“Majin Ozotto” (translated in-game as “Ozotto the Super Monster”) was an original creation from the 1994 Sega arcade game Dragon Ball Z: V.R.V.S. The monstrous villain would have been relatively contemporary to this game’s development, but unfortunately the schedule kept him, miscellaneous other characters, and even a brand-new Toriyama creation away from the final release.

This tidbit has been added to the “All DBZ Video Games Are Rushed, Unfinished Products” entry in the “Video Games” section of our “Rumor Guide“.
