Let's re-skin a game and call it Dragonball

Post by Anonymous Friend » Tue Mar 23, 2010 9:21 am

What pre-existing game would you say could be re-skinned (with reasonable modification) and be a decent Dragonball title?

I was recently playing Dissidia and thought to myself "If you swapped in some characters, this would make a cool Dragonball game." Then I wondered what other games could be said the same of and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance came to mind.

Marvel vs Capcom 2.

Also, isn't Dissidia a re-skinning of Tenkaichi? That's how I viewed it anyway.

You could probably re-skin almost any Kirby game and have it feature Buu as the protagonist instead. (And reskin King Dedede as Babidi.) I'd have fun with that. :3

Wow. :D

Dynasty Warriors? That is if you want to disregard Sagas.

Wasn't there are Quake 3 mod or something? I somehow remember reading this years ago but at the same time I'm not sure if it would even make sense :shock:. Have to go look around.

Ah... Bid for Power. I remember waiting with bated breath for that to be finished. And waiting. And waiting. And waiting. And then it lost the DBZ theme and I lost interest.

Nice Choice!

Not sure how it plays but it looks similar to Super DBZ. Also that theme is catchy.

Some people have literally hacked Brawl to include character models from Tenkaichi Daibouken...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5g8mP2SYnM4

...as well as include a stage from it as well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iq4xMGAEXlY

Here are some other character hacks where they modeled other characters in Brawl to look like other characters, including Dragon Ball characters.
(Some of the annotations in this video are vulgar just to forewarn you.):

~Goku and Kuririn 1
~Goku and Kuririn 2
~Goku and Chaozu
~Vegeta
~Goku and Kuririn 3
~Vegeta 2

They've got many other hacks in that game too. It's amazing some of the ones they have now.

No seriously.

The scene: the World Tournament, and the Demon King has just grown to enormous size. Well there's only one thing to do, Goku.

JUMP TO HIS KNEECAP AND RIP THAT MOTHERFUCKER OFF. DRIVE YOUR FIST INTO THE BLOODY MESS OF THE JOINT. LEAP TO HIS HAND AS IT COMES DOWN AND TWIST THAT GODDAMN FINGER 180 DEGREES. RUN UP HIS ARM AND GO FOR THE EYE. TEAR IT FROM THE SOCKET.


Oh hey its chichi...and an O-prompt! Hmm...oh. oh dear. .... KAIOOOOOO

For some reason this thread just sent my brain into work with coming up with a concept for a Dragonball game in the style of Super Mario 64 or Super Mario Galaxy. The difference here is that you're collecting Dragonballs and making wishes rather than collecting stars.

No, Street Fighter is actually good.


I was referring to how some people say the Street Fighter is a copy of Dragon Ball, which is bullshit really.
