Last week we reported Namco Bandai Games filed two trademarks – one for Dragon Ball: Ultimate Butouden and the other for Dragon Ball Zenkai Battle Royale. Ultimate Butouden was confirmed yesterday via a scan and today Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale is also confirmed!
The thing with Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale is that it is an arcade game (like the one you would play at an actual arcade or Chuck E. Cheese) so that likelihood of it coming to North America is pretty low. For our Japanese fans, the arcade game is set to debut February 4, 2011.
Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale seems to be like Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team in that two characters can be on the same team. In the trailer below, for example, you’ll briefly see Piccolo holding an opponent (Android 16) and then Goku charging a Kamehameha to shoot at the opponent. The graphics looks very nice and detailed, possibly better than Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.
There official website, db-zenkai.com, is live, but contains nothing more than a splash image and the trailer below.
Thanks so much to Ty Morris for sending this interesting bit of news to us!
