Dragon Ball Fusions 3DS Game Ships on August 4 in Japan
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The July issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine revealed on Saturday that Bandai Namco Entertainment will ship the Dragon Ball Fusions Nintendo 3DS game on August 4. The game will retail for 5,700 yen (about US$52). A version bundling a Nintendo 3DS console with themed plates will retail for 23,700 yen (US$215).
An earlier issue of Weekly Shonen Jump had described the game as follows:
You (the protagonist) and Pinijji wish for Shenron to start the greatest and strongest martial arts tournament. He grants your wish, and the "Jikūichi Budōkai" (Number 1 in Time Space Martial Arts Tournament) begins!
Naomi Shindoh will voice Pinijji in the game. The game will put a large focus on fusion characters. By using a Capsule Corp-made bracelet, new fusions called "EX Fusions" have become possible. New fusions include Karoly (Kakarot (Goku) x Broly; spelled the same way as "calorie" in Japanese), Gorillin (young Goku x Krillin), Krigohan (Gohan x Krillin; a pun on the word chestnut rice), and Prillin (Piccolo x Krillin).
A manga adaptation of the game debuted in Shueisha's Saikyo Jump magazine on April 1.
