The 2012 Japan Expo is now over, but new content and information from the exciting event continues it’s way onto the Internet! The latest is Dragon Ball Z video games producer interview! Koji Nakajima, the producer behind several Namco Bandai games including Dragon Ball Z for Kinect, One Piece: Pirate Warriors, and Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, was at the event to talk about some of his works. YouTube user and Dragon Ball Z fan Treevax had the great opportunity to interview Nakajima-san about Dragon Ball Z Kinect as well as Dragon Ball Z video games in general. This includes talk about a potential Dragon Ball Raging Blast 3, the falsely confirmed Dragon Ball Z: Sparking Omega, and Dragon Ball Z Zenkai Battle Royal for PS3/360.

Just to be clear, Dragon Ball Raging Blast 3, Dragon Ball Z: Sparking Omega, and Dragon Ball Z Zenkai Battle Royale for PS3/360 are NOT confirmed in any way. The interviewers just express their interest and ask Nakajima-san about his opinions and if the games can become a reality. Rest assured though DBZ fans, according to the interview, Namco Bandai “will still continue making more [Dragon Ball Z] games.”

Anyways, enjoy the interview in the videos 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.

    Raging Blast 3 needs to Happen they cant leave it out like that with just 2 in it !

  • ssjbardock13

    OMG OMG OMG please let ALL OF THEM BE TRUE, Dragon Ball Zenkai Battle Royale on PS3= BADASS XD

  • ssjbardock13

    They better confirmed Sparking Omega real, or else I will Ultimate spam there face book page 24/7 non stop everyday all day & night XD 

  • ssjbardock13

    HELL F!@#$%^ DBZ WILL NEVER DIE, not coutning Kinect XD

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8wQURL-xG4&feature=related Kira

     XDDD Yeah Really DBZ Is Immortal

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_U7MU5OUS7FIH575VT4PNZNIDXU jermar

    raging blast should continue but with a combination of ultimate tenkaichi in it. i didn’t mind the up close (melee range) and far away (blast range) battles, however they have to take the rock paper scissors think out. basically what would make the perfect dbz game wold be ultimate tenkaichi graphics, raging blast 2 and budakai 3 fighting styles, tenkaichi 3 and raging blast 2 character selection (obviously with more characters this time), and ultimate tenkaichi story mode, thats my dream game, if any of you have anything to add that you think would make this an even better game please share, and of course anything you might want to take out whether its from my list or something i didn’t mention.

  • Sharnerius1

    In a way they did confirm something.They confirmed that raging blast 3 or Sparking Omega are a maybe.I’d love to see something like Zenkai battle royale

  • Mark Rose

    “Will you make PS Move version of Kinect”. I could answer that one. Unless the Kinect version is successful, I highly doubt it. And we know it won’t be.

  • ssjbardock13

    They should make a PS move of DBZ cause not a lot of people have an Xbox360 but I do plan to get 1 XD

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OJKG5PL72M2H5N6QFLWXLODEFU B

    GO to Facebook and like this page so Namco Bandai can consider this guys ideas!!
    “Nostal/Treevax page and the DBRB3 project”

    He has an entire outline of fan ideas that look very promising

  • Mark Rose

    I’m glad they’re interested in hearing what we want. LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD! STOP HALF ASSING THE STORY MODE AND ADD A LONG LIST OF CHARACTERS AND A SUPEIOR BATTLE SYSTEM! WE WANT DRAGON BALL CHARACTERS AND A FULL FLEDGED SZTORY MODE!

  • *Super~Sayian*

    ugh.. they should make an new yu yu hakusho game, or something new, hell even an new bleach, avatar, yugioh, digimon , megaman, inuyasha etc would be nice. but anyways, I hope this rumor is true, if not then budokai HD wll be the last dbz game I’m buying.

  • Damian Pawłowski

    or maybe some very good game with story mode only to beating freeza. But story with Movies and all characters to the end of freeza saga, and the next appendix with a lot of characters and new continous story mode to the end of cell saga ofcorse with story and characters from movies, and next appendix to end of buu saga with all of the rest movies. Maybe all of those will cost 120$ but the game will be amaizing.

    They don’t want to do awesome game with all characters because, they make a game with 50 characters and people buy them for 40$ so why we need to include all characters, people will buy a game even if there is only 50 characters. If we want to do all characters from dragon ball z the cost of game will be about 80$, but a games for PS3 and XBOX360 cost maximum 40$ so no one will buy this game it’s will be too expensive.

  • naruto_fan_desia

    the problem with xbox that there are alot of hackers i mean i saw my friend who play naruto in xbox they already have  like 2 people who are 99999999 i mean in the first month of its release……….
     so im stickin with my ps3 ;p but if u want to play some xbox for its exclusive games buy it and have fun

  • naruto_fan_desia

    plus if ull buy an xbox the game that i recommend is bluedragon its a game that akira the creator of dragon ball made its rpg and really amazing

  • ruderhymer

    yes yu yu hakusho or bleach fighting game would be cool on ps3 but if I am not wrong Namco Bandai doesn’t have the rights of Bleach, Sony does

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KMVC2AHUM6A6GYY2VMIFBFBGIU SuperdeadlyKing

    yes…..digimon…….how i miss it, though i still need to watch the newer seasons but i loved 1 and 2 and 3 until it got depressing with that d reaper thing lol i still liked it though.

  • http://twitter.com/samael789 samael789

     So.

    You want them to confirm a game that some random asshat made up 4 years ago? And if they don’t you will break the law?

    Where is the logic?

  • http://www.facebook.com/dewayne.glass Dewayne Glass

    yes agree then need to make a new bleach game cause bleach is bad ass im a bleach fan myself and i dont understand why its only one bleach games.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_U7MU5OUS7FIH575VT4PNZNIDXU jermar

    i dont know about you but i would, especially if they had all the characters, ive been waiting for that since forever 

  • shafiq95

    GO MAKE A DAMN BURST LIMIT 2!!!!!

  • EA575

    A thousand times this! I’ve been waiting forever for a sequel! But I understand Dimps is busy with the Street Fighter series to work on a new DBZ game.

  • EA575

    Is that Matsuyama in the background??

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KMVC2AHUM6A6GYY2VMIFBFBGIU SuperdeadlyKing

    dimps lost the rigghts, its a shame to because i loved burst limit’s game play though im not a fan of those set pieces in it

  • Scott Baker

    Yes it is

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001891356167 Devante Williams

    ok so this interview can be watched in english but the naruto interviews can’t? HORSESHIT!

  • Scott Baker

    the only real digimon games they make now are for DS and there not been translated into english yet and proberly wont

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    Interview for DBZ: Ultimate Tenkaichi Lite? ROFL

    Give me an interview for the Budokai collection. At least that is an UPGRADE to an older game.

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    And screwing up Sonic games. xD

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    GO MAKE A DAMN BUDOKAI 4!!!!!

    Which would be basically burst limit, but something just urked me about that game. If they fixed the mechanics to be more Budokai-like I’d be all for it.

    They just need to give it to a new developer. Spike is atrocious.

  • ssjbardock13

    I was only joking =D

  • ssjbardock13

    I know about blue dragon I tried it its AWESOME its game I will pick up when I get my xbox360 then I will get Bayonetta and maybe Halo but mostly I will spend time do Xbox Live Arcade like Banjo Kazooie.

  • ssjbardock13

    They are making a new Digimon game on PSP coming on July 19.

  • ssjbardock13

    Ah one of my favourite childhood moments digimon is EPIC, I remember my cousin got into it was AWESOME, also the game on PSone Digimon Rumble Arena was EPIC I hope it comes on PSN XD

    Also I have a lot Digimon figures before XD

  • ssjbardock13

    Indeed XD

  • BlackFlameKiller

    I just want zenkai battle royale also the kinect game looks like garbage

  • ssjbardock13

    Wait, did I add you on PSN, I feel I know you from somewhere.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    according to neogamespark, (youtube channel) budokai 3 was an incomplete game, their was suppose to be more to it, So an budokai 4 is possible, but less likely since its one of those games can’t be revived for an sequel for unexplained reasons that are beyond me. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.marrero.315 Alex Marrero

    The Developers left the DBZ scene.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    that explains why tenkaichi was made.

  • BlackFlameKiller

    yeah we’re friends on there 

  • ssjbardock13

    Oh yeah, cause I haven’t been on PSN for 2 n months cause I am on vacation, oh and I finally picked up White Knight Chronicles II & I also got Tales of Graces F and I am picking up Spec Ops: The Line today XD
