No Saiyans for Smash?
While Goku is busy readying himself for the upcoming release of Dragon Ball FighterZ on the Switch, fans of the popular anime character have supposedly been discussing the possibility of him making a cameo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. According to Comicbook.com, Goku's English voice actor Sean Schemm
Should we be surprised?
Update: The servers appear to be back online. Before the launch of Dragon Ball FighterZ at the end of September, Bandai Namco is this week testing out the game’s online infrastructure. As previously announced, an open beta for the game was going live today to stress test the game and also give players a...
Frieza's big bro
EVO 2018 has fully delivered in terms of fighting game announcements. We've been informed about the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct, saw a new trailer revealing the DLC characters in BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and found out Windjammers was on its way to the Switch. Bandai Namco's cont
A friendly fighter
Fighting games aren't always the most accessible. Thankfully, the team behind the upcoming Switch release, Dragon Ball FighterZ, is making an active effort to buck this trend. During an interview with Eurogamer, the producer of Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tomoko Hiroki, spoke about how this particular fighter appeals to a wider...
We heard yesterday Bandai Namco would be holding an open beta test for Dragon Ball FIghterZ in August, and now it's also revealed a brief glimpse of the two new fighters coming to the game. Base Goku and Base Vegeta will be available in the other versions of FighterZ early August, and presumably
What you Saiyan?
It was rumoured earlier this year, but today's E3 2018 Nintendo Direct confirmed what we all wanted to hear - Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming to Switch. The critically-acclaimed brawler made quite an impression on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and now it's the turn of Nintendo fans to see what the fuss is all about. Amazingly, Nintendo...
Sega's former mascot wasn't designed to fight Mario at all
Remember Alex Kidd? If you're a younger gamer than you'd be forgiven for answering in the negative. Sega's former mascot had his brief moment of fame during the 8-bit era but was unceremoniously swept aside when Sonic arrived in the early '90s, and has been relegated to a bit-player in the...
Or even a Nintendo DS one, for that matter
Dragon Ball FighterZ is pretty special, but it's not coming to Switch - not yet, anyway. While Bandai Namco continues to mull over the potential of a Switch port, fans have been digging into the options of the PC version to come up with some interesting findings - one of which relates to scalable graphics
Remember motion controls? Well they're back! In Dragon Ball form!
Bandai Namco has released a new live-action trailer for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, which launches on Switch on 22nd September. The game - which is already available on PS4, Xbox One and PC - features characters from the famous manga and anime series, and on Switch will offer local...
Dramatic battles on the go
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was one of the earliest third-party retail games to be confirmed for the Nintendo Switch, though firm release details have taken a while to emerge. Bandai Namco has now confirmed that the title will head to both North America and Europe on 22nd September. In terms of Switch-specific features...
Horsepower isn't the issue
The world certainly isn't short of Dragon Ball games, but Dragon Ball FighterZ - unveiled at E3 - certainly stands out from the rest. Developed by Arc System Works and sporting a team-based combat system not entirely unlike that seen in Capcom's "vs" series of titles, the PS4, Xbox One and PC title looks set to...
Local play and, um, optional motion controls
Back in January a number of titles featured in the Nintendo Switch presentation from Japan, notably in a sizzle reel of upcoming games. One of these was Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, and we now have a better idea of when that game will arrive. Bandai Namco in Europe has confirmed an Autumn / Fall release...
Boosts Nintendo Switch hardware sales, too
We've been awaiting the usual Media Create Japanese chart results, but due to Golden Week in Japan the data hasn't been forthcoming as yet. As we've had requests for what information is available, we've picked up the Famitsu magazine charts from earlier in the week to tide us over. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe,...
There have been many Dragon Ball games over the years, and one universal truth exists: they seem to get better as time goes by. Early efforts on the SNES, Mega Drive, PlayStation and Saturn left a bad taste in the mouths of series fans, but lately Bandai Namco's Dragon Ball Xenoverse sub-series has redressed the balance neatly...
Here's hoping they'll come with the Western version on day one
It can be hard to predict, at times, which enticing and notable releases will make it out of Japan to the West. It was certainly good news, then, when Bandai Namco recently confirmed Dragon Ball Fusions for a 13th December release in North America; it'll arrive in Europe sometime in...
Better late than never
Dragon Ball Fusions arrived not too long ago in Japan, and we've been admiring its slightly wacky trailers and footage. Recent ratings and listings pointed to localisation for this one, and now it's official - it'll arrive on 3DS in North America on 13th December, and February 2017 in Europe. In case you're unaware, this...
Is it our turn?
Dragon Ball Fusions is a title we've followed with some curiosity out of Japan. The latest 3DS title utilising the popular IP offers turn-based gameplay, but a key hook is the ability to fuse characters together for interesting results. So far it's arrived in Japan but there's been little solid indication of a Western release, but...
3DS games lock out top five
The Media Create chart results are out in Japan, and they make happy reading for Nintendo and an assortment of 3DS game publishers. Titles on the portable hold the top five software positions, with hardware sales also showing a modest boost. Starting with software, Etrian Odyssey V has made its debut at number one - its...
Also goes in-depth with Etrian Odyssey's races and classes
While last week was packed full of Nintendo news, Famitsu took a step back this week with only a handful of Nintendo games featured. However, they're some big ones; an in-depth preview and a review for Etrian Odyssey V and a review for Dragon Ball Fusion on the 3DS make this week's edition...
Out in Japan soon
We've had a handful of exciting Dragon Ball releases in recent years, with Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden being a decent entry on the 3DS. The next portable arrival in Japan is going to be Dragon Ball Fusions, which is out soon. Though we don't have Western release information yet, it's interesting to see the direction this one's...
It looks... interesting
The Dragon Ball franchise is big business for Bandai Namco and its partners, appearing in various forms across multiple platforms. In August the next 3DS entry will make its mark in Japan - Dragon Ball Fusions. It's an RPG and, as the name makes clear, allows players to fuse characters together in strange combinations, while...
Bandai Namco keeps busy
Bandai Namco isn't shy of work, churning out a lot of titles for its own franchises and in partnerships with other companies. Its diverse offerings keep coming, as a 3DS RPG called Dragon Ball: Project Fusion is confirmed for release in Japan in 2016. It's a huge franchise, and the core detail of a 'fusion between Goku and...
It's over 9000!
There have been reports suggesting that Namco Bandai may be bringing the arcade title, Dragon Ball Heroes, to the 3DS in Japan: it's a Japanese card-based arcade game, originally released in late 2010 and developed by Dimps. The 3DS version will apparently be called Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission, and is said to include a...
