There has been speculation recently on the release date of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z. In the latest Weekly Shonen Jump. That speculation can be laid to rest, at least when it comes to the Japanese release date of the game, which will be January 23, 2014. No word yet on the American and European release date, but as soon as we hear something, we’ll keep you up to date right here on Saiyan Island!

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 PS Vita in Europe, North America, and Japan in 2014.

    If this is like any other dbz game, it should be released in the US in just a few days after Japan’s release… In a few cases maybe a day earlier at most so we will definitely have this before February :D

    If you want to import the game you go onto an import website like Play-Asia then order the game from there and you will get a copy of the game from Japan

  • John Ross

    Oh my god! Please release it the same day as Japan or at least around the same month, but before them. I have high hopes that this game will be release around January for North America. I want this game come out right after Christmas, they said early 2014, and release it around January will feel really EARLY. I know January, February, and March are early months, but I can’t help myself. I want the game NOW! ✖‿✖

  • AiHina

    Japanese release dates are usually Thursdays or Saturdays, so it fits in their frame

  • JaVonn Thomas

    I WANT IT NAO!!!!

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    really? good. the last few times i checked it hasn’t said anything.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

    have you, what games? and how do you know you were the first?

  • TheMarshy2

    Damn I was expecting to get J-Stars Victory Versus before this but okay this works too!

    lOl

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    A true gamer never plays games for graphics, they play for gameplay & fun…=D

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Me too…XD

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    =D

  • naruto ball z

    yah sorry )’:

  • Jhun Hoon

    If they didnt announce it being 50% complete i would expect the same thing

  • SUPERDEADLYKING

    lol

  • subsamuels

    Sell your xbox 360 and buy a PS3. If not then your not playing J-Stars because its a PS3 exclusive and there’s no PS3 emulators.

  • subsamuels

    Based on the roster screen it seems that only Gotenks SSJ3 is playable, no other transformations for him.

  • LawOfWrestling

    I’m expecting to see the game come out probably sometime between June – October 2014.

  • hellninja123 .

    hey bro if this come on january 23 than are we getting it earlier than them like we usually do

  • ryryvl

    How

  • LawOfWrestling

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but if a game comes out in Japan, doesn’t it take it some months for it to come to North America? And don’t DBZ games usually come out in October for North America?

  • MW100

    no the dbz games usually come in the same month for na and j . the only games from japan that ive played that took a while to get to NA were pokemon games pre-Gen 6

  • MW100

    so do we but complaining isn’t gonna make it come faster

  • LawOfWrestling

    Oh ok thanks. I got confused with One Piece Pirate Warriors 2. Japan got it so much earlier than North America did.

  • ryryvl
  • Ryzumaki

    Remember they delayed it, plus Japan isn’t always first nor last in selling copies, bound to be the same month

  • John Ross

    They said early 2014, not late 2014. :l

  • Caique Justino Deodato

    Naruto Storm 3 has released in North America before than Japan…

  • LawOfWrestling

    Alright I get it now. Mistake on my part.

  • Danny123100

    Yes dude we know it was on we all already saw it on saiyan island plus not to be rude but you also got the date wrong for the release date of J-stars

  • Goku’s Brother From Dif Mother

    Sigh* me too I don’t want this thing in 2014 any year I Want it November 2013 I Want the earliest date for this game I don’t wanna be spoiled but this game looks too awesome to wait for , and anyways how am I gonna wait when i’m literally hungry for handheld DBZ action!! Dragon Ball Z Battle Of Z :D November 2013!!!

  • Goku’s Brother From Dif Mother

    XD

  • Goku’s Brother From Dif Mother

    Well lets not go overboard arguing over the release date, were in for a suprise, especially Dragon Ball Z Battle Of Z Imagine Goku VS Bills Gohan VS Cell Vegeta VS Buu Trunks VS Broly or your own matches High speed action in air on ground this is the Game we all waited for Like if you agree }:D

  • 超サイヤ人神

    america either gets the game a week or two before Japan or a week or two after Japan and Europe is normally in the same week as Japan

  • AiHina

    Why would’t Japan of all places get a OP game first? When its usually their no. 1 thing, whereas Naruto is the opposite across the sea

  • DeathPoint Z

    we’ll have to wait and see.

  • DeathPoint Z

    Ain’t that the truth! :D

  • DeathPoint Z

    No one can replace that guy, he’s legendary! I’m just another fan that loves the whole Dragon Ball franchise. ;)

  • Amando O.S

    What an incredibly stupid comment

  • Amando O.S

    Personaly i dont know why, but a dont care about the game, i’m much more excited about brave soldiers, already pre-orderet it

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Thanks…^_^

  • DeathPoint Z

    No problem.

  • Kevyn Carr

    what are your psn names, i wanna play against strong player so i can get better faster

  • Revered

    They already have a north american advertisement like this. They wouldn’t release the game a whole year after this.

  • Revered

    Still disappointed. The DBZ games stopped being good after Tenkaichi 3 on PS2. This looks bad.

  • John Ross

    Why? This looks way different.

  • hellninja123 .

    yup thats his symbol ” ^ 0 ^ /” and just like my bro DeathPointZ i am another fan that loves the whole Dragon Ball franchise

  • hellninja123 .

    Did Someone Say Legendary

  • Chris Short

    DBZ ultimate Tenkaichi and DBZ budokai HD collection, im very persistant in dbz games ever since budokai 1 ive always tried to complete all the games 100% same with naruto and one piece titles, and ive managed to get 3 world firsts under my name among them 3 series and 2 nearly world 1sts but in the top 50 for 2 other titles among them 3 series.

    you can find out on mutiple leaderboards regarding who got games first to 100% platinum and my username is among 1st on every one of them sites, if you ever need proof i can show you easily :)

  • DeathPoint Z

    Oh and how’s your game going? Last time I check, this game has been showing lots of improvement than those other dbz games that sucked. So sorry that your disappointed and lost faith because of those horrible dbz games before it.

  • MW100

    what are you talking about infinite world, the raging blast games, and somehow i even liked ultimate tenkaichi more then sparking meteor. cause sparking meteor i beat the whole game on hard in 1 day. also sparking meteor/bt3 lies about its roster it doesn’t have 150 i counted and i saw about 100 less characters and the 100 subtracted aren’t even the carbon copies. the characters that were in sparking meteor and not in the games mentioned above were useless ones that have stock moves

  • dbz4life

    dbz bt3 have much characters but you dont even play with half of the characters

  • dbz4life

    i want the demo

  • dbz4life

    or just wait for the demo first (if they ever releas it)

  • PrincessZelda2020 .

    No, it doesn’t matter, you need to read the articles more carefully, dbz games releases when they’re schedule to release, Ultimate Tenkaichi came out in North America on Oct 25, 2013 because it was schedule for that day, however Japan received it in December, not every game releases in Japan first.

  • Ivan Morales

    im not sure if anyone has said this yet but u can preorder it now but besides that i found a youtube vid and he was showing us that on gamefly they have a realese date as march 31 2014 which btw is one day after battle of gods came out

  • hellninja123 .

    Nappa:Vegeta look the wild traitor
    Vegeta:try to catch it nappa and make sure you get a critical(smiles evily)

  • DeathPoint Z

    xD

  • Paige Vongola Alexandre

    Great now I’m going to buy this for the same reason I bought Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. They have each other’s outfits, I can’t right now, I just can’t. PS: Why not on PS4

  • thomas

    man I wan t dbz budikai tenkaichi 3 game bra that was made for ps2 they should bring it to ps4 there is no dbz game that could be bettaer than that all dbz game are wack story mode is wack they should make the game like tenkaiichi 3 or 2 they have every body like gt and u can turn to monkey and all saiyen like if u agree

  • Marco Balanco

    I understand how you feel and I’m sorry to say this but I don’t think they’re really gonna remake Budokai Tenkaichi series. For the reason I can understand why is that we should move forward instead of moving back to the past. I can understand and see why Budokai Tenkaichi is so awesome but bringing it back is not gonna do anything good and it will might as well be boring since going the same story and gameplay after the game you already tried. BoZ is not perfect but it’s something new yet almost has some same style as Budokai Tenkaichi and Ultimate Tenkaichi.

    TL;DR Forget mentioning old stuff like BT and move on to new stuff like BoZ

  • john clear
