After several weeks of speculation and potential sightings on European Ratings Board Bandai Namco Entertainment have today officially confirmed that Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS this year within the UK; as Herve Hoerdt, Vice President of Marketing & Digital at Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe, explains:
“Following the success of DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE, we wanted to keep on bringing awesomeness to our fans and make them as happy as ever. BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe is listening to fans and will keep on surprising them over the next few years! In the meantime, everybody will enjoy a high quality fighting-game based on one of the most emblematic Anime & Manga ever created!”
Developed by Arc System Works, the fighting-game-studio which brought us BlazBlue and Guilty Gear franchises, and featuring iconic 2D sprite gameplay Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden allows Nintendo 3DS users to fight with over 20 popular characters while an additional 100 characters will be included as support roles.
It’s core fighting mechanics will remain true to the original Butoden games that were released onto the Super Famicom (SNES) in Japan many years ago; whereby traditional fist-fighting replaces the over the top energy beam attacks we have all become too familiar with.
Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden is already available in Japan, and has been for a few weeks now; but starting from the 16th October 2015 the game will be made available within the UK and Europe for the Nintendo 3DS platform.
