Playable Demo of Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden Released onto Nintendo 3DS eShop


Despite not being released into the UK and Europe for another two months distributor Bandai Namco Entertainment have today released a playable demo for the upcoming Arc System Works developed fighting game; Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden.

Featuring 2D Sprites and classic ‘old-skool’ fighting mechanics this playable demo of Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden will offer a fair example of what you can expect from the game when its released onto the Nintendo 3DS later this year. The demo itself features four characters; namely Goku, Gohan, Vegeta and Majin Buu, and two gameplay modes – Battle Mode and Versus Mode.

Battle mode sees players against the CPU with three characters being used in one and one battles with the aim of being the first to defeat all characters. This particular mode also allows characters to be ‘switched out’ at any given time; just like a really tag-team mode in other fighting games. Versus mode on the other hand is a simple ‘offline/adhoc’ gameplay mode with the same rules applying.

Bandai Namco Entertainment have also teased that if the demo reaches more than 10k downloads then they will reveal a special code which unlocks access to another playable fighter – so get downloading. While the demo is free it does have a usage restriction; as the demo can only be used thirty times afterwhich you won’t be able to access it.

The demo for Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden can be downloaded from the Nintendo 3DS eShop right now within the UK and EU, with the game itself coming out on the 16th October 2015 within the UK.
