Dragon Ball Z Kinect Video Preview

Namco Bandai Games recently showed off some of their games in Las Vegas and Hamza Aziz from Destructoid was on hand to try out an early build of Dragon Ball Z Kinect.

How was it? According to Aziz, it seemed terrible! The Kinect didn’t read half of his attacks and the character players control pretty much stays in one place. As mentioned before, this is an early build of the game so much can change between now and the release date in October. We at Saiyan Island are certainly hoping for the game to be a success! Anyways, you can see Aziz’s full impressions in the Dragon Ball Z Kinect video preview below!

Dragon Ball Z Kinect (officially known as Dragon Ball Z for Kinect) is in development by Spike Chunsoft. It will feature over 50 playable characters and put players in a first person scenario as they act like the heroes and villains they love from the Dragon Ball Z series thanks to Microsoft’s Kinect. The game will be published in North America and Europe by Namco Bandai Games October 2012 for the Microsoft Xbox 360.

    is a tenkaichi 3 or budokai 3 remake or raging blast 3 so hard to ask for? if they did any of these things it would be so amazing, i cant get this game since i dont have a 360 and kinect and acording to this, its messed up atm but if they fix it it can be a good excercise =D

    Yup this confirms that this game is shit tier. Time to move on people and hope a company that actually cares about DBZ makes a decent game for this generation. We definitely deserve it for putting up with crap like Ultimate Tenkaichi.

    Special beam cannon is not his best attack :]

    “If you’re a super, super, die hard fan — you will definitely pick this up and not have the greatest time.” 

    ^This. Cause only a fan with no standards would go out and buy a game that they KNOW is crap.

    Ultimate Tenkaichi wasn’t crap it just had the same problem that Burst Limit did, it was missing characters the fans wanted wanted other than that it was a pretty solid game especially since it was the first DBZ game that allowed you to create your own character. The same will go for this game because it’s pretty much just UT in first person. I really don’t see what more can you see in a Kinect game. 

    Namco Bandai still does care for the DBZ community but their lack of ideas is causing the community to doubt them which I believe isn’t fair. At least they give us what they feel is good and actually listen to their fans instead of spamming us with DLC like Capcom does. There’s too many people in this world to listen to each individual person so it’s kind of hard for a game community to get down what the fans really want especially with all the games that Bandai has published. Personally, I believe that they should make a Budokai 4 but that’s just me :)

    It wasn’t just the characters, the game was a tedious QTE fest. I’ve been a diehard Dragonball fan since I was 7 and my friends are huge fans too and we all hated the game, it is rare for us to hate anything DBZ. It’s clear that they’re milking the franchise and selling us a sub-par game for a quick buck. Which is not only disrespectful but a huge shame, since there is potential for an amazing game.

    Then again this is just my opinion. I’m entitled to mine just as you are entitled to yours and IMO the recent games have been utter rubbish.

  • Jmenyfield

    Just to let you know I respect your opinion but that still doesn’t mean that we can’t chat about it LOL! It’s just so that we know that there’s no hard feelings between us and it won’t turn into a rage war later on. Even though UT was a QTE fest it still provided many things that previous DBZ games didn’t. A more destructible environment, skill in saving your ki(almost as skillful as when they had blast stocks back in Budokai Tenkaichi), create a fighter, and quick time event boss battles which was pretty fun. I had a lot of fun with Ultimate Tenkaichi and still do! Just for the heads up, NBGA is really considering going back to the real budokai tenkaichi style for DB: Project Age 2012 because of all the complaints which shows you that they are indeed listening so don’t give up hope!

    IMO the only bad DBZ games were Raging Blast 1 and 2 because they were trying so hard to be what they weren’t, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi other than that DBZ games have been decent. I  will not give up on DBZ games though since I’m a huge DBZ fan. If I do eventually see a DBZ game that pisses me off as much as Street Fighter x Tekken did I will just go find another game series since I have stocked up on a lot of potential popular anime….oh crap sorry for the long reply xD

    It was when he was fighting Raditz

  • GKage

    Well it’s developed by Spike and it has a dev time of a year. What else could you expect beside mediocrity?

  • ssjbardock13

    I can’t wait XD

  • ssjbardock13

    They did, its called Infinite World tbh, I love it more than Budokai 3, probaly its just me.

  • ssjbardock13

    There is a rumor they might remake it on PS3 & Xbox360 as Dragon Ball Z: HD Collection XD

  • ssjbardock13

    His best attack was HellZone Grenade, That move is fucking AMAZING XD


    all namco has to do is remake budikai tenkaichi 3 with better graphics that’s really all and this guy speaks the truth

  • ssjbardock13

    There is a rumor the might make I really hope its true that will be EPIC playing BT3 on HD XD

  • ssjbardock13

    I played a DBZ game similar to this, its actually quite fun if you get a hang of it, but I lost it :(

  • Boomer6574

     That’s stupid!

  • cloudsmiles999

    i agree i wanna see tenkaichi 3 imma die hard dbz fan but this is so just unrealistic for r generation right now 

  • ssjbardock13

    LMFAO, the funny thing is people kept asking its the same dbz game over and over again they wanted something new, when they announced DBZ For Kinect, people were all like O_O, oh f!@#, well people this is what you get when you keep complaining, no offence though.

  • Jmenyfield

    Well Infinite World is pretty much like Budokai 3.5 more than Budokai 4. There has only been 1 DBZ game so far for this generation that has decent sales and that’s DBZ Burst Limit, which tells Namco Bandai that the Tenkaichi style isn’t the way to go, but the Budokai style. 

  • cloudsmiles999

    yeah u make alot of sense man lol although ive never wanted them to change the game but alot of people r asking for it, its unfortunate 

  • ssjbardock13

    But look at the bright, there is a rumor, they might make DBZ HD Collection for PS3 & Xbox360, it could be Budokai Tenkaichi Collection.

  • cloudsmiles999

    o that would be so sick man id buy that in a heartbeat

  • Nelson Alves

    whenever namco decides to stop making dbz games they should make the last one ever be called Dragon Ball Z budokai and make it like budokai 3 but way more advanced like burst limit and fast paced but put every character in whole f***ing show idc if its normal ppl just ppl that have fought that are not main characters like king vegeta and master roshi characters like that and make them playable with epic intense fast paced movement, team specials, normal special and make everything just badass thats what im waiting for but i am a die hard dbz fan so im picking up this game =)

  • san_goku786

     that guy couldn’t do special beam cannon cause he didn’t have enough energy. when it showed him trying to do it on the side where it showed special beam cannon, the picture wasn’t lit up but it was dark. i hate it when people accuse or say bad stuff about dragon ball z games when they don’t even know what they are doing is wrong or there is a reason for it…….
