Akira Toriyama’s Comments on Super Dragon Ball Z (Arcade Fighting Video Game)

Everyone on the staff1, who is more knowledgeable about Dragon Ball than a guy like me, and who love it very much, obsessed over reproducing the atmosphere of the original comic, and have finished up a truly enjoyable game!

Everyone, by all means please give it a play, losing yourself in the battle world of this hot Super Dragon Ball Z!

— Akira Toriyama
