Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden arrived on 3DS in the West in October 2015, and we thought it was rather decent. The lack of online multiplayer was a sore point, however, though we were given hope when it was confirmed for an update in Japan late last year.
It's taken quite some time, but Bandai Namco has now revealed that 'The Extreme Patch' will arrive on 7th April in Europe - no North American date has been given at the time of writing. In addition to adding online versus fights, it includes a Training mode, an Extreme Survival mode and new Z-assist characters. Beyond that there'll be the usual balancing tweaks and adjustments.
It's a hefty - and free - update, and the addition of online matches may prove tempting to fans on the fence. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
This is awesome, I was never on the fence with this game, it is just that money is short, but if Dragon Ball Fusions release here I will buy it for sure!
Good news. Very fun game.
It's a bit later on, but that's pretty ne-
Wait. SSJ4 Broly and Gohan?
...I, um....I need to go.
Awesome, the survival mode sounds great!
Well that's a selling point.
I have a reason to buy this game now!
@Jab187 I completely agree the lack of online is the reason I didn't pick up the game as well , now I will definitely be picking up a copy .
I probably will get this now, the demo was pretty fun and the perk of the Super Famicom game as a download is great value for the eShop version.
I need to try out this demo... maybe I will check it out on my lunch rather than playing Pokemon... unlikely but it might happen lol
This game needs an extreme English dub. I have this game and I stopped playing because of all the screeching the Japanese voices do. It's shrill and uncomfortable to listen to. I would instantly pick this game right back up if they changed that.
Might have to get this if the update comes to the states too!
I will be able to summon bingo-dancing Vegeta and Broly SS4? Best Dragon Ball game ever..
I had given up hope this was coming to the States, and traded it away for Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7, without making a backup on my SD Card first...not exactly my brightest move...oh well! Time to unlock those Assists again...it was pretty fun though, so not that big of a deal I guess...
Tried the demo before the game released the sprites look very good but the gameplay just doesn't feel as tight as other 2D fighting games the new online mode looks cool but like I said the gameplay just doesn't live up to the DBZ name.
Release the SNES version. I was in the hospital for 4 months and missed out!
Awesome, now we just need it stateside.
I need to go pick this game up immediately. I wanted to buy it but this is the type of game that needs multi-player. It's why I have no interest in buying Star Fox Wii U. They had online in the DS game...
@Mario_maniac Is the only way to get the SNES game by downloading this game?
Is there a way to turn off the voice acting in the full version?
And now I Actually am interested in this, I was biding my time until we got this update...
@Mario_maniac That was only for the pre-order or hardware bundle. Its not available as a bonus anymore, at least not on the EU eShop for me.
I would buy the game right now if it was still a bonus, I really want that SNES game.
Time to buy this!
CHA LA HEAD CHA LA!!
@AyeHaley I got codes for the Super Famicom game and theme when I downloaded it in Australia just hours ago. It actually says in the update trailer in this article you will get codes for the both from the eShop too. If you couldn't see the offer in the eShop description, it's hidden by one of the arrows you need to press to extend information (a different arrow from the one hiding the description of the game).
@McGruber Yeah, through the eShop purchase of the 3DS game is the only way nowadays, but I'm only speaking for Europe/Australia. But tbh the Famicom game is pretty reliant on knowledge of Japanese; I didn't expect cutscenes to go for very long. Even the buttons they added on the bottom screen (to restart the game or check the also-untranslated control scheme) are in Japanese. I thought at least that stuff would have been changed.
@Jab187 Same, now I might have too pick this game up
@Gen0neD game would suck then english voices sound like nails on chalkboard so annoying
Great. Just great. I had bought the game, but i won one of those competitions to get a free copy. Neat. When i downloaded it it said preview version, and since i got it a few days before release, i assumed it meant early access. Now when i download the patch, nothing happens. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.
Always better to have the option. Some (like you) prefer the Japanese and some (like me) prefer the English. Your response seems as though I insulted you. Which was not my intention. So, no apologies here. DBZ is the ONLY anime that I demand English dub for. All my other anime, I prefer in Japanese. But yes, it's shrill and I would like an update for that which I paid for.
Looks like I'll finally pick this up!
$20.99 on the North American eshop! Definitely picking it up today
