Complete BT3 Info and Discussion Thread [UPDATED 10/02/07]

Post by Xyex » Sun Aug 05, 2007 2:02 am

The other thread got mucho sidetracked by the fakes. And personally, I hate sifting through pages of information looking for just one thing. SO! I've decided to do my best to consolidate... everything. As such, I'm creating this new thread to be 'the place' for new information. This first post will be updated with new information as it comes (and I have the time for such updates). So, without any further ado...

* Sonic Sway
- "Sonic Sway" Dodge your opponent's attacks!
"Sonic Sway" is a technique that enables you to gracefully dodge your opponent's attacks. If your opponent hits you with a smash attack while you are dodging, you will successfully avoid your opponent's attacks! Launch a counterattack while your opponent is off their guard!! (Translated from official site by Futabatei Shimei)

* Z Burst Dash
- "Z Burst Dash", superspeed movement that surpasses Dragon Dash
"Z Burst Dash" is a move in which you move even faster while using Dragon Dash! It is an astonishing 1.5 times faster than Dragon Dash!! On top of that, you automatically circle behind your opponent when you get close to them. Dodge your opponent's attacks, and attack them from behind! (Translated from official site by Futabatei Shimei)

* Blast Combo System
- "Blast Combo System" Perform original combos!
You can now fire a blast while performing combos! You can put blasts to ample use at the end of combos since you can perform them quicker than before. You can perform a greater number of combos by incorporating blasts! (Translated from official site by Futabatei Shimei)

* Z Counter
- "Z Counter" Heated struggles to get behind your opponent!
You can teleport behind your opponent in an instant when you block their melee attacks! However, if your opponent blocks your attack, they will teleport behind you! An exciting series of offensive and defensive maneuvers with which you struggle to get behind your opponent is born!! (Translated from official site by Futabatei Shimei)

* 161 characters

* 30 Arenas

* 10 Game Modes

I don't think there was any art of Oozaru King Vegeta other than that which was presented on the official site.

But this is a handy topic!

Hmm. I seem to remember seeing one at some point, though I suppose I could be wrong. Ah well, I'm sure someone will be able to cofirm its existance or lack there of eventually.

Were the GT Kid Goku and Alternate timeline Gohan officially confirmed? They're not on the character list, but they have pictures.

Caejones is correct. The character list is only for those who have appeared in the characters section of the site. This is to prevent accidental duplicates (like listing SSJ GT Kid Goku now, and then again when he shows up on the site) as well as preventing the really good fakes from squeezing into the list, etc. They are officially confirmed through screenshots and videos, but they are not yet up on the official site.

Here are a few more artwork:

King Cold: http://img253.imageshack.us/img253/3555/kingcoldcv5.jpg

Nail: http://img253.imageshack.us/img253/4272/nailua1.jpg
Super Gogeta: (can't seem to upload it right now, will try later)

I also think it would be a good idea to post the new revealed modes and combat features, like the sonic sway and such. And maybe some of the more relevant (cool?) screenshots.

I'll find the videos later or tomorrow.

Heh, you posted while I was editing. XD Had already located Nail, King Vegeta, and King Cold, but thanks for the Gohan. And apparently I missed adding Gogeta before cause, I've had him since I first posted. But, now they're all up. I've got 28 artworks on my PB and I've got 28 posted.

And yeah, I'd thought of adding the new modes and features information but I hadn't felt like digging up the blurbs for them on the Atari boards (if that post is even still there). I could see adding a few screenshots to go along with that information, sort of a show and tell thing. I'll make a few adjustments to get it ready for later.

Soooo...I don't know if it's been mentioned anywhere yet (at least not in this current thread - 3rd edition) but IGN.com has a listing of November 13 as the domestic (as in the US) release date...at least for the Wii version. Though I guess it's pretty safe to assume that that date will also apply to the PS2 version as well.

Yep, so there you have it....November 13....

Why is there just a random SSJ Vegeta in there? Shouldn't there be a Base and Super Vegeta as well? I really hope this one isn't yet another stand alone Vegeta.

I believe that is Super Vegeta. Base and SSJ Vegeta are already there.

Okay, so the same thing still applies though. I hope Super Vegeta isn't another stand alone character.

Nope, I'm pretty sure it's a one handed Masenko. Which makes some people suspect his alt costume might be one armed Gohan.

There is a pic of him doing the Makankosappo on a different scan though. So yes, he does have that move.

Probably not, it's probably just a late update.

Also new features shown
http://dbzs.jp/meteor/p_features/03.html

EDIT

Seems like you can recieve stuff for your meteor game if you have data of the previous 2 games (Though i could be wrong). old information shows that you unlock stuff for the previous 2 games rather than stuff for meteor (Kinda silly really)

Also some Wifi info (Wish i could read Japanese)
