So is this one going to be as underwhelming as every other game since Raging Blast?

Ah yes, another DB game.

Hyperbolic Time Chamber


I've always hated that dub term. What is the word "hyperbolic" even doing in it? Is the time chamber exaggerated in some manner (I guess it is really large)? What's wrong with Room of Spirit and Time?

You use that image every time a new DBZ game comes out. You need to get a new joke.

Maybe it had something to do with the japanese word for it and fitting it on the mouth flaps.

The word "hyperbolic" does not necessarily imply "relating or pertaining to a hyperbole in the literary sense". Hyperbolic can also relate to hyperbolas, or curves, including the concept of theoretical non-Euclidean timespace arrangements created through mathematical curves.

As to why they translated it as such, I don't know - maybe they wanted it to sound "science-y" or something. The original name for it is 精神と時の部屋, or "Room of Spirit and Time", a pretty bleh name imho.

That's exactly what I was thinking.
Anyway, unless this "next-gen" DBZ game is Zenkai Battle Royale, I think I'll pass thanks.

What do you mean "fair"?

Considering the Xbox One is out in Japan in a few months and this DBZ game is all but certain for either the end of the year or early next year at the earliest, if there isn't an Xbox One version mentioned here, it probably isn't happening.

Microsoft won't be launching the XBone until September in Japan, so I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't bothering themselves with it. It is very similar to the PS4, so they could probably port it fairly quickly if they wanted to.

These games need better gameplay, animations and graphics.
There hasn't been a good console DBZ game since the PS2 days.
