Bandai Namco has lifted the lid on the next game in the popular Dragon Ball fighting game series. The new game, which is provisionally titled Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi, will be a follow up to the incredibly popular Dragon Ball FighterZ game, which is available on the Nintendo Switch family and other platforms. The official title, platforms, and a release date for the new Dragon Ball fighting game was not announced. You can check out the teaser trailer for Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi down below.
Let’s just hope Bamco does a better job with DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi then they did with the DBZ Kakarot next gen upgrade. Certain individuals couldn’t import save data from save data utility when you transfer save files and if you managed to import the save data from last gen it wouldn’t load properly. If you had already purchased the dlc on last gen the game wouldn’t recognize it, it wasn’t compatible. The trophies wouldn’t auto pop if you already have the platinum from last gen, alot of individuals including myself ended up starting over even tho i completed everything 100%
After playing past Bamco games like DBZ Kakarot, and Sword Art Lycoris i’d expect a rocky release. SAO Lycoris had duplicate loot exploits and the crafting system required no crafting materials at the official release. The in game SAO shop opened months after the official release and the cube system has extremely low RNG. Just thankfully now you get more daily quest and cube tickets. At the official release the online aspects literally took forever finding a lobby, because SAO games aren’t AAA they have a small player base despite the success of the anime. Same with other fairly popular anime based games like Tokyo Ghoul, even at release most online lobbies aren’t active.
Despite the success of DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi i’d hold off jumping on that hype train with Bamcos track record. Im currently anticipating Sword Art Recollection the sequel for Sword Art Lycoris, but im not jumping on that ban waggon expecting it won’t be a buggy almost unplayable experience at the official release.
@nikki_boagreis i never had issues with Kakatot, i own both the PC and Switch versions but mainly play the Switch version, game runs very well, yes the low background textures are a bit distracting but the character models look as they should. I’m personally excited for Budokai Tenkaichi 4.
It might be time to move away from Z in the title for these fighting games. But instead of replacing it with Super, just use the S by itself instead. Kinda wish the anime & manga did this, too, to stick with the Z & GT naming schemes.
I agree with the sentiment, but the marketing with Z in the title too big to phase out. There’s still people who don’t realize the original is just called Dragon Ball and the Z was only added when they brought it outside of Japan (Z is just called Dragon Ball in Japan is what I’m trying to say)
No way… Budokai Tenkaichi 3 was one of my favorite games on Wii. Looking forward to this if it’s anything close to that!
Budokai Tenkaichi and FighterZ are two different spinoff games with very different gameplay.
As someone who’s childhood was heavily, HEAVILY influenced by the Tenkaichi games in their youth, my brother and I are HYPED for this announcement: here’s hoping it comes to Switch
I’m not sure what to think of this. On one hand, I loved the Budokai Tenkaichi series (specifically 2 and 3) and I hope they manage to top the roster of 3 especially now that they have a plethora of new characters and forms thanks to super. On the other hand, I think 3D fighters are outdated and I prefer 2.5D fighters, and I’m worried the game is going to be rushed like previous installments and they’re going to give us lazy alternate costumes (if we get alternate costumes at all) and little to No what if content (would it kill them to fuse cell saga future Trunks with Buu saga Gohan?). On the tentacle look growing out of my side, if they’re bringing back old series, then there’s hope for Fusions 2.
I understand that the amount of Dragonball games can make it abit hard to keep up but Sickr, if you’re reading this, there is a notable mistake here.
Dragonball FighterZ is it’s own thing, it has nothing to do with the DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi games. In fact “Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi” was released on the Playstation 2 ages ago and even received 2 more sequels after that, this is simply the next game in that series.
So yeah, I hope this clears anything up.
