He means a game completely based on DB, not the actual tournament. Personally, I love the idea! But, I doubt it.

Seeing how many characters they can put in one game, I don't really like the idea. I'm happy with the mix of DB-Z-GT characters. I'm pretty sure they'll add more characters from both Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball GT in future games.

I like the idea too. I doub it as well, and I think DB:AA (even though it never reached the States,) was the closest we will come to seeing another DB game, since developers are more focused on the larger end with Z.

It'd be funny if they found the fanfic of Dragon Ball AF and decided to make one or two what-if saiyans from it for a future Budoaki game. ha

I think there was a Vegetunks or something

What the fuck are you talking about? This topic is about what kind of things you'd want in a Dragonball Budokai game. I'm still confused on what the hell you are trying to say.... :?

A Dragon Ball Budokai game has been discussed to hell. I don't really see the point. Why in hell would we backtrack? We went from Z, to Z with more characters, to Z with GT and Dragon Ball, and then we backtrack? Like others have said, doubtful.

That good?

Well, it'd be an interesting challenge. XD As DB didn't feature frequent flying, nor massive ki-beams early on, as the characters who could do them were countable on one hand. So the system would have to be reworked quite a bit.

Ya. I think a DB Budokai would be good partly for that reason. You can more easily make a fighting game based on DB using conventional methods than you can a DBZ game. And I think Ki attacks would probably end up limited soley to Ultimates in such a game as well.

Flying would probably also be restricted to only occuring within Ultimates or something (since only allowing Tien, Tao, and Piccolo [and his minions] to fly would be problematic, especially without any ranged attacks save Ultimates). But ya, a DB Budokai would almost be pure martial arts combat.

I doubt we'll get one, since the series isn't seen as being as popular here in the states. They might make one in Japan though, and if that happened there could be a chance of a port. I doubt Atari would pass up the chance to make money when they don't have to risk a lot of their own to do it.

Anyway, my characters list for a DB Budokai would be:

Kid Goku
Young Yamcha
Roshi
Kid Krillin
Kid Chi-Chi
Pilaf, Mai, and Shuu (in robot)
Namu
General Blue
Major Metalic
Sergeant Purple
#8
Tao
Dracula Man
Mummy Man
Devil Man
Grandpa Gohan
Chaotzu
Tien
Yajirobe
Tambourine
Drum
Cymbal
King Piccolo
Young Piccolo
Kami
Piccolo Jr.
Cyborg Tao
'Adult' Krillin
'Adult' Goku
'Adult' Chi-Chi
Shen

Each would have various alternate outfits, either original, based on what's seen, or pallete swaps...

Arenas:
Grandpa Gohan's house
Dessert
Grasslands
Pilaf's Castle (Inside and outside)
Kame house (on Roshi's island)
Budokai Arena
Underwater Cave
Muscle Tower (Inside and outside)
Bottom of Korin's Tower
Red Ribbon Base
The Lookout
Baba's (Inside and outside)
King's Castle / City

Dragon Ball's not really known for battles, that's what Dragon Ball Z is for. So a fighting game based on Dragon Ball and not Z wouldn't do as well as the overly-ridiculously-intense Dragon Ball Z games. But yeah, Dragon Ball's always been a favorite of mine, and a game based on it would be good in my book.

But I'm more into the adventure/comedy aspect of DB, not necessarily the fighting.

Tis why I want both. I'd love a fighting game based on it, but an action/adventure title would be awesome too. Especially once you got to the Red Ribbon Army saga and beyond.

That's why they need to bring Dragonball Advance Adventure here.

I'm VERY tired of the budokai games.
Let's ready have an action-adventure/rpg game based of the whole DB Z GT saga, now THAT would be something!!

Ah, I forgot all about Cyborg Tao. Thanks, Xyex.

For the flying problem, I say have Kid Goku use Kinto'un, like in Ultimate Battle 22. That'd be pretty cool.

What would everyones ultimates be? This is what I think:
Kid Goku-Super Dragon Fist (The one from Budokai 3, with the shadow of the Oozaru)
Oozaru Goku-Mouth Blast
Adult Goku-Chou Kamehameha
Master Roshi-The Original Kamehameha
Yamcha-Sokidan
Kid Chi-Chi-Slice/Laser Beam Combo
Jackie Chun-The paralysis attack he used against Goku during the 21st Tenkaichi, or the attack where he sings the enemy to sleep
Namu-Diving X
Giran-Giru Giru Gum
Tao Pai Pai/Cybrog Tao Pai Pai-Super Dodonpa
Akkuman-Devil Beam
Tenshinhan-Kikoho
Piccolo Daimao-The attack he blasts Goku w/in Volume 12
Piccolo Jr-Growth, Reverse Mafuba
Shen-Mafuba

I couldn't think of any else. You all got any?

A Bulma flash attack would be funny! :lol: Anyway, what do you guys think the story mode would be like? I'd like to see something like Budokai 1 or Tenkaichi. A few what-if? storylines would be cool. Like Piccolo Daimao killing Goku or Pilaf actually getting to make his wish, LOL take down Daimao and Jr with one of Pilaf's mecha!

What would Korin's ultimate be? :shock: That'd be so awesome to beat the shit out of Daimao or Pilaf with Korin...

Ahh! Now I've got that meow mix song stuck in my head... :?

Nope, he'd be disqualified if he did use Kinto'un. Plus, even if it was allowed, it'd give him, along with the previously mentioned characters, an unfair advantage over the rest of the cast who neved did learn how to fly during DB.


And Yajirobe's ultimate move would involve him eating the opponent. =O
