Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z – March 31, 2014 Release?

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is making it’s way to North America, Japan, Europe, and Latin America for the Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, and Sony PS Vita. Namco Bandai Games has not yet officially announced a release date, but a GameStop (USA) employee has snapped a picture of a list that includes a March 31, 2014 date. Amazon.com and GameStop’s official website have also listed the game’s launch date as March 31, 2014.


Is this really when Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z will be released? We at Saiyan Island don’t think so, at least not for North America. The main reason is March 31, 2014 is a Monday. Games published by Namco Bandai are released on Tuesdays in North America so our guess is the date is just a placeholder. To be honest, we would not be surprised if the game was released this year. Saiyan Island took a look back at history, and Dragon Ball Z games are announced only a few months before the release date. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z was announced just last month in June, which would according to past releases, put the release date in the October-November timeframe. Again, this is just speculation on our part. We’ll definitely let you know the official release date as soon as it’s confirmed. For now, take a look at the release and announcement dates of past Dragon Ball Z games as a source of our speculation:

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is the latest game in the legendary DBZ series. It will host team-based combat with up to 8 players, including 4 on the same team. The game is confirmed for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PSVita in Europe, North America, and Japan. No release date has not been announced yet for either region at this point in time.

    I hope it’s released this year :) This game actually looks promising.

  • Zenkai

    Seeing how Dragonball Z Battle of Gods was released on March 31, 2013, they may be doing a new yearly trend for new DBZ stuff.

    Also this game features Super Saiyan God, so they may want people to buy the DvD and watch the movie before introducing stuff related to the movie.

    Just my 2 cents.

  • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

    March 31, 2014 is the end of this fiscal year. That’s just a placeholder date meant to signify they plan to release the game this fiscal year, but aren’t sure of the date yet.

  • Yonathon Pham

    The more time, the better. :)

  • Ryan Bowman

    I can’t wait till it comes out in America and for the 360!!!

  • John Ramirez

    Says November 12th, 2013 on an European site.

  • aj33zy_R3d

    I absolutely LOVE Dragon Ball Z and Naruto Shippuden! This Game actually looks like it’s going to blow many people away to me Raging Blast 2 > Ultimate Tenkiachi but this Game HAS MY BOY GOKU IN GOD FORM?! PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!!! I don’t care when it’s released as long as they take their time with this one.. Ultimate Tenkiachi was trash.. Not saying it didn’t have potential I still bought and played it a little bit beat it then got rid of it.. I am a Dying Naruto and DBZ fan at heart so not a lot of either games disappoint me as long as we get it I don’t care!!! I’m still looking forward to Jump-All-stars the most though haha!!!! AHHHH ANIME FREAK.. xD It’s in my blood yet a lot of others too!!!!

  • Keijuan Joseph Archer

    That sounds much better. I’ll be knee deep in the next gen by 2014.

  • romo vincent

    link plz

  • ryryvl

    I feel like there giving so much time with release date to include gt and other things the fans want

  • narutonatsu

    That will would be really stupid to release it next year!

  • John Ross

    Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi was not trash. -__-

  • Hysterical Gamez

    Ultimate Tenkaichi was almost as bad as DBZ Kinect.

  • thecrows2332

    I hope Australia gets it as well.

  • John Ross

    Did you even play both the games? And I don’t think Dragon Ball Z Kinect doesn’t looks that bad either because kids will love to play this game.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I was right, I have a feeling that this will release next year, the later the better… (^0^) /

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    True, tbh I bought something similar to it, lol, wish I did not…:P

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Not really, cause it’s better so they can take their time making the game PERFECT… (^0^) /

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Dragon Ball Z For Kinect was a lot worse than Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, Ultimate Tenkaichi was a far better game than Dragon Ball Z For Kinect, tbh kinect killed 2 of my favorite gaming franchise, Sonic Riders & Dragon Ball Z, but Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z brought it back up, I can’t wait for battle of Z…(^0^)

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    True, Ultimate Tenkaichi FTW, Ultimate Tenkaichi>Kinect…(^0^)

  • Gohan7861000

    Yosha now Dbz and naruto are on my list!

  • killacobra4u

    The later the better is right so they can get it all right and done for our sake

  • ryryvl

    prob and they might give us a new trailer that will include ssj god and gt

  • Zachary Harmon

    this is completely wrong. Just saying. The creators said specifically it will come out this fall. And gamestop has had release dates wrong several times.

  • romo vincent

    how do u know did that say that

  • romo vincent

    when is there a website

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    Hey guys go to a website is called team-upeu they said the game is coming this winter

  • Fahd Al Zarooni


  • Zimsuo9000!

    They should also release it on the PS4. :)

  • ssj god

    they should also release it on ps2 :)

  • Goku’s Brother From Dif Mother

    Someone filmed it already

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    See here

  • Cody Ryan

    I’m sorry to say, but they discontinued the ps2′s in February of this year… So it”s safe to say they won’t be making ANY PS2 games anymore…

  • Cody Ryan

    Quiet’s right…. The longer they take to make a video game, the better. Or have u known we NOW are seeing a new Kingdom Hearts 3 coming out on PS4 when the last Kingdom Hearts game (KH2) was released on PS2 7 years ago in 2006… It’s 2013, n we finally are excited for that as well… Longer they take, the better the controls, the better the graphics, the better the story, programming, audio, physics, all that involved. If they just release it now, the public is gonna complain that there is too many bugs already n they need to work them out again…. N no.. updates, can only fix so much. Once a game is made n pressed to the disc, there’s absolutely nothing else they can do to fix gameplay…. Not by much… :P

    gamestop dude told me november

  • Android 1

    I was hoping for Budokai 4 -_-

  • Simon

    Awesome. ^

  • Matthew Peterson

    Yep. Pretty sure November is where itll be released. Pretty much every DBZ Game is released in November.

  • Matthew Peterson

    That is true. Gamestop is pretty inaccurate when it comes to release dates.

  • Matthew Peterson

    Besides the fighting style and low character roster, Ultimate Tenkaichi was a actually a really good game.

  • Matthew Peterson

    Yea, it wasn’t. I mean, it had the most beautiful graphics, it had beautiful scenes from kai, and the story mode was the most accurate of all DBZ games. Plus, it brought Hero Mode.

  • Matthew Peterson

    Hell ya. I think that SSJ Bardock came at the wrong time. DBZ KInect ( UT 1.5 ) was the worst game to introduce him. Thank god he might be in BOZ since the creators wanted to see chilled in the game

  • Matthew Peterson


  • Percy Saiyaman

    Are you serious right now? the ps2 stopped making games in 2009 come on be smarter than this and anyone who owns a ps2 should have a ps3 or an xbox 360 dont be so dumb

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    It’s going to relese in 2014 go to namco bandai website they said the relese date 2014

  • kilo192212
