Kanzenshuu wrote:While little is known about the game yet besides the visuals shown on the page, the magazine does draw attention to a mysterious figure watching the first battle between Goku and Vegeta from the shadows. With red hair, a scouter, and the Capsule Corporation logo on his sleeve, his identity is not made clear. The magazine poses the question to the reader as to who he is and what this means. Two cities of unclear nature are also showcased, with one in a Namek-like environment sporting a temple with a tree in the middle of what looks like a birdcage, and the other a “high-tech city” with which apparently has some sort of connection to “that machine”. Further details are, as always, expected in subsequent issues of the magazine.
No release date is listed as part of the game’s reveal. Over the past decade or so, most new Dragon Ball games are announced either in April or May with a release date in October or November later that same year. With Battle of Z just releasing earlier this same calendar year, it is certainly possible for this trend to shake up a bit.
