Get ready…to play all your favourite Dragon Ball Z battles again.Again.Again.Again.Again. But this time, with visuals that will go…even further…BEYOND!
With all the subtlety of launching a gigantic ball of weaponised energy at the planet and calling it the Big Bang Attack, Bandai Namco has revealed that a new Dragon Ball Z game is on the way for the PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Here’s the scanned image from the upcoming July issue of Shueisha’s V Jump magazine, if you happen to be able to read Japanese, which shows off the very first Dragon Ball game for new-gen consoles:
While this version will no doubt recycle the same storylines the same way that Cape Town recycles their refuse and reasons why die Kaap is better than Jozi, there will be a new city featured that has some role to play in the game. Maybe. Probably. I don’t read Japanese dammit.
While I’m keen for a new Dragon Ball Z game with spruced-up visuals, I’m just hoping that this year Bandai Namco decides to kill the currently convoluted control scheme the same way that the manga regularly kills off Krillin.
A layout and input scheme that utilised what Dragonball Z Budokai implemented ten years ago for example, combined with the outstanding visuals? That’d take the game away from HFIL (Home For Infinite Losers and not Hell you damn censors) and into heaven.
Fat chance that that will ever happen, but let a fan have hope dammit. Or a dragon that would grant my wishes.
