FAKE: Dragon Ball Sparking! Omega announced for PS3 and 360

Post by fps_anth » Fri May 18, 2012 12:34 am

EDIT: Turns out it was actually fake.
The V Jump reveal for a "Dragon Ball Sparking Omega" game we reported on last week appears to have been fake. But there is a new Dragon Ball game in this month's V Jump.

The magazine has a first look at Dragon Ball Zenkai Battle Royal Super Saiyan Awakening, an updated version of arcade title Dragon Ball Zenkai Battle Royal. Namco Bandai also opened an official site for the game today.

According to the site, the update adds Super Saiyans Goku, Vegeta, Gohan and Trunks as new characters. The game will also have a story mode, and some currently unspecified battle system updates.

Look for the update in arcades in mid July.

It's not even coming to consoles from the looks of it.

I guess we have... Dragon Ball Z Kinect to look forward to.

I'm so confused.
This month's issue of V Jump has a first look at Dragon Ball Sparking Omega, the next PS3 and Xbox 360 entry in the Dragon Ball franchise.

According to reports from V Jump flying getters, Omega will be the "final form" of the Sparking series and will have the largest number of characters in Sparking history. A release is set for this Winter.

We'll hopefully have confirmation and official announcement later this week.

Somehow, it's going to top Sparking Meteor in the character department. In case you forgot, Arale was playable in that game. Arale.

I'm not sure what to think of this. If true, well, huh. It's probably be terrible, but here's hoping for more Dragon Ball GT characters to show up and more Toei animation.

I personally think this is incredibly fake, but I could be wrong...

AndriaSang is a reputable source. I'd be very surprised if it was fake.

We need to make a Dragon Ball Cycle image. I just can't do this anymore. If this is supposed to be our big Dragon Ball game, the return to form why wasn't it announced at Namco Bandai's press event instead of the Kinect game? You know, get impressions from the world's press, and if the game was half decent actually get some positive buzz for one of Spike's games. But I can't. How Spike got to make 5 different games on HD platforms is beyond me. They must be making these games on shoe string budgets and Namco Bandai can't hear the fan outcry due to the money stuck in their ears.

I smell some BS. I'll take this with a grain of salt. We are always promised a certain number of this and that in a DBZ game, and Spike still comes up short.

I'm making that DBZ Game cycle image because this is not mondo cool.

Maybe a character-creator with a wider amount of options?

The only thing I can really hope for in terms of what I'd want from this game is a brand-new animated short.

Instead of a straight-up character creator, it'd be funnier/better if they just had a "Fusion Generator" where you pick two characters, the type of Fusion, and then the computer does the rest and randomly generates a character you can tweak here and there based on the original two characters' attributes.

Sorry, I kinda derailed that. What I meant to say was, "Neat! Let's see if they can do it right and hold me over until an eventual port of Zenkai Battle Royale!"

I'm not believing. They also said that Ultimate Blast would be the last DBZ game from Spike and we end up getting a Kinect game from them.

This is what I mean:

(Thank you Mike)

It's 3AM, and I don't drink coffee so I'm surprised that picture isn't totally awful.

People claim that they see screenshots of SSj4 Goku and Vegeta, but I'm not buying it.

I don't see why this would be fake... In fact, this is probably the mentioned off-hand "Game Project Age 2012" shortly after Ultimate Tenkaichi came out.

If this doesn't end up looking like crap, and life stuff goes right, this may be the first DBZ game I buy full price at/around launch since Budokai 3.

Even if does look like crap, but has Selypa in it (in ~HD~), then I have to buy it anyway, because I am a horrible fanboy that aims to somehow irritate everyone because of it. Obviously. And if it has Zangya then I won't have to get RB2. =D

I have yet to buy a DragonBall game from this console generation. I don't think I've played any since Infinite World in 2008. I'm hoping this will finally be one that interests me enough to get it.

If this is real:

-Marginal graphical improvements over Ultimate Tenkaichi/Blast.
-New animation.
-GT characters.

That's all I'm asking for. Bare-fucking-minimum. :?

If it's real, it won't be based on Ultimate Tenkaichi's gameplay lol. "Sparking" is the main word here.

True.

Hopefully we'll get a new Kageyama song aswell.

According to Famitsu's website, not only is it real but it also has some Super Saiyan 4 Goku and Vegeta going on. (I'm guessing in the V-Jump announcement that we haven't seen yet)
