Bandai Namco US teased this on Twitter today. We don't have much details about it yet, but we do know it will release yhis year.

Also, expect more details on the 26th-27th when the finals of the FighterZ tournament are taking place.

The only Dragon Ball Action RPG games are the Legacy of Goku series of games (as far as I know), so hopefully this will be some sort of a spiritual successor to those?

Either way, I'm interested. I prefer ARPGs over turn-based ones.

There was DBZ Sagas back in the day for PS2, GCN, and Xbox as well.

It was pretty awful. I never sent a rental back to Blockbuster so fast.

 

I'm curious what they're going to do and who's developing. They could probably take Xenoverse as a base and develop the movement and make the fights generally quick unless they're boss battles or something. Hopefully it's another original story, too.

Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans was turn-based but I remember it being really good. It's a shame it never got continued.

I just hope they don't do the same they did with Leyend of Goku/Buu's Fury and let us use someone else other than the Saiyans/Piccolo

I haven't dabbled in many action RPGs (just Ni no Kuni and soon the sequel) but I'm pretty sure it'll fit Dragon Ball like a glove if they do it right.

I hope it has a character creator. That's been one of the funnest parts of Dragon Ball for me.

First look at the game is a render of Goku and Gohan.

The artstyle resembles CC2's, so it looks like the Naruto Storm developers are the ones behind this game.

I don't see anything about CC2? I think their name would be romanized so we'd be able to read it.

Interesting that they're going for the early DBZ art style. I like it. I'd have preferred a game in Shintani's style, but this is great, too. I'm guessing this'll change artstyle based on the arc. If it goes to the end of Z, I'm happy with the look. If it goes into Super stuff, not so much lol. Though, I guess it could be a completely original story that takes place in the early Z timeframe.

Amen to that. An action RPG is a nice change of pace, but retreading the same old 30 year ground for the hundredth time doesn't become excusable just because they're doing it in a different genre. And they've been doing so well the past few years giving us unique, interesting premises.

Of course, time will tell. They could very well take this thing in a completely different direction than it looks.
