I've said this before, I'll say it again: an RPG of this quality that's focus on the original Dragon Ball would be absolutely perfect. The show itself, especially in its origins, is a parody of fantasy tropes in general. And Rpg system where you help NPCs, grind out monsters, and explore an open world is perfect for the Dragon Ball setting. Just thinking about it makes me mad since its such a perfect fit, and it'd be really easy to fit in newer stories that mesh well with the comedy centric tone of Dragon Ball.
DB Online (the MMO) was literally this
I got lots of nostalgic DB feeling from it, especially the quests that brought you to the past.
This! And it made lot of sense. I really loved the atmosphere of it.
Instead of ''you are member of one of these races, somehow, without explanation and will work for time patrol'', there was actual lore.
I don't think I remember it right, but all humans were part Saiyans and it was explained in some way, so it wasn't weird that there were whole world of them running around and you had Namekians, Dragon and Sorcerer clan and Buu, good and evil, offspring of the original Majin Buu and it was set like more than 100 years after the end of Z.
It was the sequel that everyone kinda wished for and dealt with absence of Goku and Vegeta creatively and I enjoyed it a lot.
Sure, the designs were a bit off sometimes... but man, I take it back, as playing Kakarot where all NPC's are basically RR Army Skull robots.
I really don't get this Japanese mindset of approaching their own franchises. Everytime, something is developed outside of Japan, be it Legacy of Goku in US, DB Online in Korea and other IPs, there is ton of creativity and new stuff, that somehow fits and is enjoyable.
When Japan handles the same IP, see Xenoverse or Kakarot, they are like ''OK, let's create something groundbreaking, leave everything as it is, but add either boring and repetitive quests to it, with minor designs or add Character Creation system, tell people it's time patrol and yadda yadda and leave the story of Z, as it is... just toss in Turles with the fruit, but not on Earth, but Namek and that will blow people's minds!''
