The Magic Box has updated and we finally have a release date set for “Dragon Ball Z 3” for the Japanese PlayStation 2 (which we already received as “Budokai 3”): 10 February 2005. Also, it will have “… additional characters from the DBZ movies and Dragon Ball GT.” Note that we simply have no idea […]

As you may recall, both Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z have been released on DVD in Japan over the past two years, in the form of three huge (not to mention hugely expensive) boxed sets, known as “Dragon Box” sets. There have been three so far (because DBZ was split in half) but there […]

To further support the theory that “Budokai 3” is quite an unfinished product (see our “Rumor Guide” for all sorts of details), I have come up with some audio files that seem to suggest Chibi/Little/Kid Goku was originally intended to have his own “Dragon Universe” storyline. What is really sad is that it sounds like […]

It never occurred to me that I should probably check the audio on the first “Budokai” game. I wanted to check the announcer recordings of DBZ1 vs DBZ3 with characters like Zarbon & Dodoria to determine concretely if they were left-over recordings, or new ones done specifically for the third game. What I found was […]

For proof that Bulma is (or was intended to be?) an actual character in “Budokai 3” in some capacity, look no further than the “exclusive bonus DVD” that came with the Collector’s Edition of the game. During some of the behind-the-scenes shots of actual voice work being performed on the game if Tiffany Vollmer, FUNimation’s […]

Atari has put up a new page with the first actual information screen shots from the upcoming “DragonBall Z: Sagas” (which seems to now no-longer have the word “Evolution” in the title). Join the Z-Warriors on their epic journey from the Saiyan Saga through the Cell Games. Battle their enemies. Gain power from their victories. […]

GameSpot seems to be the first with their “Budokai 3” review, written by Ryan Davis, who gives the game a not-too-shabby 8.2 for a final score. If you’re a Dragon Ball Z fan, you want this game. It re-creates the DBZ experience better than any other offering before it. And while there’s definitely a lot […]

I decided to go through all of the sound files on the North American release of “Budokai 3”, extracting them one-by-one from the game’s programming on the disc. Within these audio bits, I found the announcer’s… well, announcements for the characters’ names (you know, “Goku vs…!” and so on). A complete list of what I […]
