Indeed. That is the stratagey guide, but it means there will be a game. What it's about, what it looks like, etc, is still unknown.

But why would they put that up for the strategy guide, if their's no details about the game at all?

It's for those impatient types who like to order the guides earlier, get them before the game, and have (at least in their minds) mastered the game before they ever pick up the controller.

Personally, I like to learn as I go, but whatever. At least it gives us confirmation!

I'm like that too, but I don't think we really need a confirmation, it pretty much certain that B3 is coming out (at least to me). Hopefully, the story mode would be placed back instead of the Dragon World quest thing.

Dragon World would have been much better if they'd done it as I'd imagined it upon first hearing about it. A fully 3D world (Probably different evrionments/maps, one for each arena) that you wonder around hunting Dragonballs down, fighting in 1 on 1 to 3 on 3 battles as you encountered the other characters who were also searching for the DBs.

As it stands in B2 Dragon World would have done better as an acutal board game of sorts, not a video game.

However, I do hope B3 has some form of a story mode. Either based off the movies (either straight ports or an original way of tieing them together) or somthing new all together.

Yeah, Dragon World really isn't that good. It doesn't seem to live up to its possible standards at all.

Let's hope this one lives up more to what's expected..

.. What are the chances Chao-Zu will FINALLY appear in a fighting game?

About as much as Chi-Chi i'd expect. :cry: The little guy's been getting shafted here. Him and the rest of the Ginyu Force. And I want Zarbon back! I ruled with him in the first game.

Hmm.. Chi-Chi. I'd expect her in a Dragon Ball Budoukai, but not DBZ. Guess it's the same with Chao-Zu.

Speaking of, it's kind of a same that it's just another DBZ game. Move on to another series, guys! Give GT a better game! (Hey, I like GT.)

I didn't really like Zarbon or the Ginyu characters at all. The characters I would like to see are the movie characters, having Brolly, Janemba and Pikkon would be cool additions.

Dragon World just doesn't seem to match DBZ to me, but it would have worked with Dragon Ball. DBZ had too much emphasis on fighting, I thought they got it right in the first game, but the first game was a bit too short.

I wanted to see the cut scenes like Gokuu going super saiyan 3, but they got rid of all the cut scenes, that was the one of the downsides of dragon world.

Zarbon was one of my favorite 'early Z villains'. I'm not really sure why, he just seemed cool to me. I just wish he'd had an ultimate...

Brolly would be cool, but Pikkon is a must. Even Olibu would a cool addition. Hmm... Mabye Budokai 3 will techincally be a Budokai Complete? You know, doing the entire story mode, Raditz - Uub (the ten year after tournament). Complete with team battles!

So... let's see. What matches would that add up to? (Player char(s) on the left.) This is LONG!
Saiyan Saga
Piccolo & Goku Vs. Raditz
Gohan Vs. Piccolo (Training)
Goku Vs. King Kai (Training)
Z Warriors Vs. Saibaimen
Z Warriors Vs. Nappa

Gohan Vs. Vegeta (Maybe, maybe not. Not sure about that one.)

Vegeta Vs. Final Form Frieza
Goku Vs. Frieza
SSJ Goku Vs. Frieza

Trunks/Androids/Cell Saga(s)
Trunks Vs. Cyborg Frieza & King Cold
Trunks Vs. Goku
Gohan Vs. Goku and Piccolo (Training)
Yamcha Vs. Gero (Android 20) (Giving the Humans some 'air time' so to speak.)
SSJ Goku Vs. Android 19
SSJ Vegeta Vs. Android 19
Piccolo Vs. Gero
Vegeta Vs. Android 18
Z warriors Vs. Androids 18 & 17 (From when Vegeta went down and Trunks jumped in to help.)
Piccolo Vs. Android 17
Trunks Vs. Vegeta (Training)
Android 16 Vs. Cell
Tien Vs. Cell (Same as earlier, 'air time' for the Humans)
Super Vegeta Vs. Cell (second form)
SSJ Trunks Vs. Super Vegeta (trying to stop him from letting Cell achieve perfection)
Super Vegeta Vs. Perfect Cell
Super Trunks2 Vs. Perfect Cell
Gohan Vs. SSJ Goku (training where Gohan goes SSJ for the first time)
Hercule Vs. Perfect Cell (Cell Games start here... why not? This would be fun... though maybe better as just a cutscene.)
SSJ Goku Vs. Perfect Cell
SSJ Gohan Vs. Perfect Cell
SSJ2 Gohan Vs. Perfect Cell
SSJ2 Gohan Vs. Super Perfect Cell
Olibu Vs. Pikkon (Maybe... though I doubt Olibu would ever be included)
Goku Vs. Pikkon!

Buu Saga
Gt. Saiyaman Vs. Videl (training for the Budokai!)
Videl Vs. Spoppovitch
Vegeta Vs. Pui Pui
SSJ2 Gohan Vs. Dabura
SSJ2 Goku Vs. Majin Vegeta (Seperate Character!)
Gohan & Supreme Kai Vs. Majin (Fat) Buu

SSJ3 Goku Vs. Majin (Fat) Buu
Mr. Buu Vs. Evil Buu
SSJ2 Gotenks Vs. Super Buu (RoSaT)
SSJ3 Gotenks Vs. Super Buu (Lookout)
Mystic Gohan (Separate Character!) Vs. Super Buu

Goku & Vegeta Vs. Super Buu3
Vegetto Vs. Super Buu3
Goku & Vegeta Vs. Gohan, Piccolo, & Gotenks (Inside Buu)
SSJ3 Goku Vs. Kid Buu
Vegeta Vs. Kid Buu

:D Hehe, glad to see someone agrees with me! My fingers are sore after typing all that, heh. Yeah, the fights alone would add up to maybe five hours, add in all the cutscenes for the story and yeah... very big bang for your buck there. 8) Oh yeah.

Plus, of course, team battles and lots and lots of characters. Everyone listed would be playable (Chatozu is included in the Z warriors Vs. Saibaimen/Nappa part). Plus Roshi (Gotta have 'The Man' :P ) and anyone I may have missed.

Maybe even toss in a few bonus sagas. Maybe Garlic Jr or one or two movies (Cooler's Revenge, Super 13, Brolly for example). To bad we'll probably never get that game... :?

Well, now that I think of it, most of those fights would probably be cinemas themselves. Like the Yamucha VS Jinzouningen 19 and 20 would be in a battle screen but the actual activity would be game controlled. Like in an RPG when the fight's guided for you. Also, some of them, to follow story, would probably be like "Sorry, buddy, no wins for you here. :D"

EDIT: But, I wouldn't really expect the movies, and the Afterlife tournament probably would be pushing it. But seriously, great idea.

I'd still like a PS2 GT game, though.

Well, some of those could be player controlled still.

And then, there's an idea I just had. Instead of always playing the 'good guy' you always play as the guy that wins in the end. That way you don't have to beat the blasted AI just watch your guy lose in the cutscene. That was rather annoying in B1.

I agree with a lot of the comments here. Story mode from BDK1 was great, and story mode could've been a lot better if it had been in complete 3-D. I wish they could make a mix between Legacy of Goku RPG style and the Budokai fighting.

A 'Fighting RPG' as I call it. You'd have fights (at least bosses) in traditional fighting game style ala B1 & 2 while still having exp., attack/defense/KI points (a.k.a. a Powerlevel). You'd level up as you played and SSJ3 Goku post Kid Buu would be able to beat the snot out of, say, an un-trained Raditz with, like, one punch. :lol:

And now, I must go to bed.
