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 February 2017.

Intriguingly, and very much following a trend seen with Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden, a free update to the already-released game in Japan is adding some tasty extras. Along with a fresh demo a free update to the game includes the 'Space-Time Radar' stage - it sounds intriguing, with players picking up fictitious radio waves in the real world that open up tears in the game's reality, with rare characters and battles emerging. It's a smart way to keep players interested while keeping their 3DS handy while on the move.

In addition the update has added online battles and rankings; that could keep players of the RPG busy for a while too.

As a refresher for the main game, the recent Western announcement trailer is below.

Hopefully these features will be there from day one for the release in the West, though we assume that's the case just yet.
