Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is making it’s way to Europe on January 24, 2014. Namco Bandai Games, this past weekend at the London MCM Comic Con event, announced the demo will hit the European PlayStation Network and Xbox Marketplace in December. It will include a single player campaign, but also, an online campaign! The progress you make in the demo will be saved and carried on to the retail release. Specific details on what content will be featured and what the exact demo release date wasn’t mentioned, but we’ll be sure to let you know right here on Saiyan Island!

Also announced at MCM Comic Con was a limited edition, called the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z Goku Edition. It contains the Battle of Z game, along with Goku in Sage Naruto’s costume, a 25-centimeter figure of Super Saiyan Goku, and some “privileged content” focused around Super Saiyan God Goku. The Goku Edition will be for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

No news on the Japanese or North American demo or limited edition, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as it’s released!

  • Zero

    Can’t wait to try this out butt…..Vegito being dlc is jus…..it kind of irritates me. I wonder if they will they just skip is battle in the story?

  • MW100

    they don’t battles are changed to have team battles and they don’t have super buu gotenks absorbed, so instead of super vegito vs super buu gohan absorbed it will be ssj2 goku, ssj2 vegeta, ssj3 gotenks, and piccolo vs super buu gohan absorbed

  • Acrenor

    SCREW CHRISTMAS THE BOZ DEMO IS CHRISTMAS

  • Zero

    Butt judging from earlier vids, it looks like you can decide to have teammates or not….Wait, no Gotenks absorbed? Then is Mystic Gohan’s battle against him skipped to?

  • EKtor Manuel

    That goku figure was already on sale :s on ebay= Dbz master stars piece (well thats what ebay says :p)

  • MW100

    nope you have teammates no matter what you just decide if you want them to be cpus or other players across the world

  • MW100

    then just stay behind a mountain till all your teammates die. Hey maybe when that happens you’ll be angry enough to go ssj2

  • Vega D.

    Shiiit, online on a game demo? When was the last time that happened?

  • Afghan

    This game looks good but I still can’t over the fact it doesn’t have in game transformations, the ability to charge your ki and offline versus mode…

  • MW100

    you can still charge your ki

  • Afghan

    I’m sad to say you can’t :( It was reported by Nostal treevax

  • AiHina

    That figure’s just $15 in Japan, surely if Anime specialty shops still existed; it’d be there right now

  • AiHina

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    YES, JACKPOT, GOKU EDITION FTW, I can’t wait to add to me ULTIMATE DBZ COLLECTION… (^0^) /

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Me too…^_^

  • dill

    yes we do

  • dill

    same

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    ^_^

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Same, it’s funny that a lot of people like Zuri A are b####### and hating on this game, they just don’t want to admit that this game is AWESOME, all they think of saying is BT3 is the BEST, people I understand why BT3 is the BEST DBZ game, but that’s old & people should get out of the past & move on, try something new, I use to be like you staying with the same game and franchises but I moved on tried something new didn’t regret out, so give this game a chance you might end up liking it, but if you don’t like, not my problem.

  • kevin kantarama

    It was shown in few gameplay videos that you are able to charge your ki

  • kevin kantarama

    Great news, can’t wait to try the demo with online! Fantastic!

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Then his story should also be DLC.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    DBZ Abridge FTW…=D

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I actually like that idea, I don’t mind a certain change.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    @6WildGurr9:disqus

  • ImmaVegito

  • ImmaVegito

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Yep…^_^

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    PS3, my Xbox 360 is broken.

  • ventusiixii

    awesome awesome awesome, can’t wait

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    Lucky you I have to wait 1 more week because the stupid game store won’t get it until next week

  • DeathPoint Z

    Same here bro! This is awesome! :D

  • Danny123100

    …You should get that checked dude

  • Branks Artist

    So a DBZ game where they finally have co-op story play as well as battles… but it’s forced in every single battle? Dumb.

  • Javien Dawson

    Is it coming to PS4

  • MW100

    sadly no since namco bandai wants to make money and most of us dbz gamers are still on ps3 they released it on 3 instead of 4

  • moje

    no

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/Doflamingo45 Doflamingo45

    I’m not sure if I should get this. It looks promising but the fact that the last game (Ultimate Tenkichi) hyped me up so hard and then screwed me over in the end makes me question it.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Same.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    If you live in the Middle East, then you don’t need to import, it will come out, cause Middle East uses the the same region games/DVDs as Europe, which is a big plus for me & you… (^0^) /

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Yep…=D

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    This won’t screw you over like Ultimate Tenkaichi, if you played DBZ Legends before, think of it like Legends but 3D.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I’m glad, I’m sick of 1v1 gameplay every single year, it’s getting old, I relieve that they are trying something new rather than the same gameplay every year.

  • John Philipson

    how does that work, how would the middle east get it before japan since the game has been in development since the beginning, explain how you get it on the 19th

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Leak release.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    That sucks, which region is your Wii U?

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    USA region

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Oh no wonder store release late, cause I got mine on October 14th.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    EPICNESS…=D

  • DeathPoint Z

    Has the similarity as DBZ Legends, but more bada$$ and better fights.

  • DeathPoint Z

    Same here. The 1v1 was rather getting old. My friends and I always say that it would be cool to have a team battle and work together to fight enemies instead of, beat one enemy, wait for other opponent, fight opponent, beat opponent, repeat process. Or if people didn’t go and mod their game and cheat there way up (Which tells me how sad it is that they have to cheat their way up to enjoy a game). Now Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z will be a game that all DBZ fans and players alone can enjoy. :)

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    You are lucky and what do you think of sonic lost world

  • 超サイヤ人神

    I have a 360 my ps3 is broken !

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Yep…^_^

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    It’ AWESOME, I will give it 9/10.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    That sucks, we have the opposite…:O

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    I will get my copy on Sunday or monday

  • John Philipson

    Leak Release? where did you find this leak from

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    NICE…^_^

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Gamestreet.

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    Yeah Iam so excited

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    My friend bought Sonic Lost World NTSC yesterday, I told I bet your brother is excited to play it…=D

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    I don’t have any brothers or sisters that’s why I said Iam so excited and not saying me and my brother are excited

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    Why did you like my comment

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Cause you’re an AWESOME guy…^_^

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    Why

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    O.o

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    What

  • Jussi Knuutila

    I already have that figurine, so I don’t need to buy the collectors edition :P

  • 超サイヤ人神

    It will probably look similar

  • TK

    That is a somewhat cool special edition (but also lame as well because it’s not an exclusive statue), but I already have that statue. This game looks good but not good enough for my money.

  • Guest

    Sorry but I believe having only co-op is not s good idea. Yes, there were some moments in DBZ where people fought 2v1, 4v1, 2v3 etc. But most of the battles were primarily 1v1. Having co-op is a good edition, but at least they can give us an opportunity to fight alone…

  • FreshSaiyanPrince

  • Mustafa Al-sayegh

    So you can only get the game on ps3 right?????

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    To me is doesn’t matter what they’re doing is good enough for me & I know who you are, you can’t fool me FreshSaiyanPrince

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Same here…^_^

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Yep…^_^

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    True…^_^

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    PS Vita & Xbox 360.

  • DeathPoint Z

    Yep. :D

  • Abdulla Buhamood

    I just got my copy I give sonic lost world a 10/10

  • FreshSaiyanPrince

    Sorry about that, it was a double post lol

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    AWESOME… (^0^) /

  • Garikai

    Is the demo gonna be on vita?

  • person

    i really like the idea of multiple people i just wish there was a option like in tenkaichi tag team to pick 1v1 as well and since this is ps3 im surprised they cant add it on this for 2v2, 3v3, and even 3v1 or somthing would be cool to have

  • Andre Dotie Jr.

    It was confirmed that the vita will be the only system that doesnt get the demo and also when the game launches it can only be purchased as a digital download for the vita.Namco Bandai is screwing us over and Im confused on how can vita owners get the pre order bonus when the game is digital only but Im still not gonna let that stop me from getting it for my vita and my xbox.

  • Alex Shinsuke

    Ohhh cmon they wont even try too release for pc it’s ashame…. Q^Q

  • anthony robillard

    this will be such a good game im hopeing for what if charters or what if dlc in my opion they add a whole new perspective

  • anthony robillard

    yes yes you can

  • anthony robillard

    well ps4 and xbox 1 are having software problems

  • anthony robillard

    yes

  • anthony robillard

    really you think its a bad idea its awsome

  • anthony robillard

    both lol

  • FreshSaiyanPrince

    I believe that having ONLY co-op is bad idea. I have nothing against the co-op features in the game, but battles like Super Saiyan Goku Vs Frieza, Gohan vs Cell, should be 1v1. It wouldn’t be right to see the battles so altered to the point where the main story loses it’s originality

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    I have never seen a guy complaining about there’s no vs demo, playing online is a better gaming experience than offline vs, but oh well can’t blame you everyone has a different opinions though.

  • Chris Short

    any hints yet as to a release date?

  • Kevyn Carr

  • Fabio Gutierrez
