DBZ: Bukuu Tougeki
"Bandai says the follow-up to the popular GBA game is coming to
Nintendo's dual-screen handheld later this year. According to the
latest issue of Shonen Jump, Bandai is currently making a sequel to
Dragon Ball Z: Bukuu Tougeki (Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors).
While Bukuu Tougeki was released on the Game Boy Advance, the sequel,
titled Dragon Ball Z: Bukuu Ressen, will be hitting the DS. The game is
in development for a fourth quarter 2005 ship date in Japan.
Dragon Ball Z: Bukuu Ressen is a 2D fighting game with a team battle
system similar to Capcom vs. SNK 2's ratio system. Each character has a
different "dragon power" assigned to him or her, which ranges from one
to seven depending on strength. The player is free to organize a team of
up to three characters within a designated number of total dragon
powers. From the character select screen, it seems that the game will
have a total of 16 characters, including Goku, Gohan, Super Sayan Goku,
Piccolo, Cell, Android #20, and Android #18. Shonen Jump reports that
some of the characters--such as Dende--will be dedicated to supporting
the battling members, suggesting they won't be controllable fighters.
Broli, Freeza and Majin-Buu are also seen in screenshots in the
magazine, though it isn't known if they are player characters or just
Additional screenshots show that the DS's top screen will be used for
combat. The bottom screen features pictures of three characters and will
most likely be used for summoning them into battle or ordering them to
execute unified attacks. The game also features a story mode similar to
Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors, although the addition of branching
plotlines has been implemented." - credit to lior fridman &

Tenkaichi & Super Sonic Warriors 2 Scans
Time2killswitch, from secretsaiyan posted scans from 'Guttsu,' which
includes Budokai Tenkaichi, and what appears to be Super Sonic Warriors
2. Their claim states that it is Chou DBZ, but it is not possible
for the arcade game to have such low resolution of graphics and the fact
that there's a Nintendo DS there. Our best guess is the first is a
scan of Budokai Tenkaichi, and the second two scans are from DBZ Super
Sonic Warrior 2.

Dragon Ball Z Game by Street Fighter's
There's more great Dragon Ball Z news. The producers of Street
Fighters are going to make a Dragon Ball Z game with cel shading for the
PSP. Thanks to omar agosto
for contacting me regarding this...here's the article from Gamespot
about this new game:
"Noritaka Funamizu's Craft and Meister dev studio breathes new life into
Dragon Ball Z franchise.
Since his retirement from Capcom in March, Noritaka Funamizu, the
company's former executive director, has been relatively quiet. He
established an independent game development studio, Craft and Meister,
but said little about his business plans.
That silence was broken today in the current issue of Shonen Jump. The
popular weekly revealed that Craft and Meister is currently working on
an arcade Dragon Ball fighting game for Banpresto. The game will be
titled Chou Dragon Ball Z (Super Dragon Ball Z).
A number of screenshots in the magazine reveal that Chou Dragon Ball
Z plays with 3D graphics rendered in cel-shading, similar to past
PlayStation 2 releases of the franchise.
Chou Dragon Ball Z will be Craft and Meister's debut title and is slated
for release before the end of the year. Funamizu is best known as the
producer of Capcom's Street Fighter II series. He founded Craft and
Meister with ex-Capcom producer Katsuhiro Sudo. In addition to Chou
Dragon Ball Z, Craft and Meister is also developing a single PSP title."

Gamespot, also released an article similar to the one that was
previously posted on IGN. The pictures that they released are the
same as IGN so that's that, however, they have a
Developer's interview video so you might want to check that out.
"...We managed to check out a bout between Goku and Kid Buu, which took
place in a rocky canyon stage. Graphically, the game is similar to
Budokai 3 but with a bit more of a realistic look to it. The characters
themselves are faithful to their television counterparts, but Spike has
backed off the full cel-shading in Budokai 3, with the result that the
character models are sharper around the edges and are more defined in
appearance. In addition, character models will now be modified during
fights as each character takes damage. For instance, Goku started the
fight with a relatively clean uniform, but at the end of the fight (in
which he barely managed to defeat Buu), he was noticeably bruised up,
and his outfit had numerous tears and scrapes in it.
Another big change is in the appearance of the stages themselves.
They're actually bigger than in Budokai 3 and incorporate new breakable
objects. In the canyon stage we saw, there were a number of rock pillars
scattered around the center of the area; these are fully breakable and
result in extra damage--and some impressive explosions--when you happen
to throw your opponent through them. In another interesting twist, some
of these breakable objects will reportedly have power-ups hidden inside
them, allowing you to grab extra health or energy during the course of a

Budokai Tenkaichi VIDEOS:
Watch them now at IGN
"Rather than focus on a particular saga as the previous games did, for
instance, Tenkaichi retells almost the entire DBZ story from scratch.
Beginning with the arrival of Raditz in the Saiyan Saga and ending with
the Goku's last journey in the Kid Buu episodes, Budokai should now hit
every major plot point in the series' history. The only real question is
just how much content from each saga will be in the game when it's
finished (because Atari itself doesn't even know yet since Spike and
Bandai are still finalizing the plotline at press time). I guess that
means you'll just have to wait until later on to find out of Vegeta's
first Super Saiyan transformation and subsequent humiliation of the
androids make it in.
Speaking of Vegeta, you can expect to see him in the lineup along with
more than 60 other combatants -- the most ever in any Dragon Ball Z
game. In fact, just about every character you can think of has made the
final cut for Tenkaichi with some of them being a little less
traditional than expected. The entire Ginyu Force (yes, including Guldo),
all the Androids, all the Saiyans, every bad guy, and plenty of other
surprises (giant monkey anyone?) will join up returning favorites like
Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, Trunks, Frieza, and Ginyu so that you can recreate
all your favorite battles...

is flying toward the PlayStation 2; publisher unclear whether game is
bound for US gamers. Tokyo-- Goku and the myriad inhabitants of
the Dragon Ball Z universe will be returning to the PlayStation 2 this
fall, says Bandai. The new game, Dragon Ball Z Sparking!, is a 3D
fighting game that will feature more than 40 characters from the popular
anime series. Developed by Spike, Dragon Ball Z Sparking! will cost
7,140 yen ($66). There is currently no word on whether Sparking!
will make it to the US market. According to Bandai, Dragon Ball Z
Sparking! will feature a 3D battle experience: Matches will take place
in the air, on the ground, and everywhere in between. The game will play
in a modified first-person perspective, with players viewing the action
over their fighter's shoulder. So far, only three characters have been
confirmed for the new game: Goku, his rival Vegeta, and Janenba, a
character from the motion picture Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no Fushion!

Dragon Ball Z franchise. Known simply as Dragon Ball Z Sparking!, the
new game is said to be more action-oriented with an emphasis on greater
movement and freedom. Of course, there will still be hand-to-hand
fighting combat in addition to more than 40 different selectable
characters in all. It is said that the title should be also completed in
time for a release in Japan later this year.
There's still no word from Atari regarding an American release of Dragon
Ball Z Sparking, but considering the enormous success of the previous
games on PS2 and Atari's exclusive publishing rights for the franchise,
we expect that an official announcement is imminent." -

I was watching television and managed to take a
pretty good screen capture of the

so check out
