posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
"Team melee action" game ships in Europe on Friday; N. America on Tuesday

Namco Bandai Games Europe began streaming a launch trailer on Thursday for the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z fighting action game for PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and Xbox 360. The video also celebrates that the official Dragon Ball Z Facebook page has received 200,000 likes.

In the "team melee action" game, up to four players can play cooperatively, or eight players can engage in a massive battle royale. The game will feature four different battle types, and a full-featured solo play. The game has online multiplayer support, and players can work together on attacks such as "Synchro Rush" or boosting each other's health via "Revive Soul."

Players can also form "dream teams" such as the "ultimate Son Goku team" (composed of four different forms of the hero from regular to Super Saiyan God) or a team of all forms of Frieza. Players can take on colossal bosses in 360° all-range battles. The game has 60 exclusive missions and over 70 different playable fighter characters, including the God of Destruction Birus and his companion Uis from this year's Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods film.

Namco Bandai Games will release the game in North America for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita (digital only), and Xbox 360 on January 28. The game will be available in Europe on Friday, and it shipped in Japan on Thursday. Namco Bandai Games has confirmed that the game will also be released in Latin America and Brazil.

The limited "Goku Box" edition will include a 25-centimeter (9.8-inch) tall figure of Goku in Super Saiyan mode designed by Hiroyuki Nakazawa, an artbook that includes work-in-progress visuals of characters and game stages, and a collector's box. Bonus digital content includes Naruto Uzumaki's Sage Mode costume for Goku.
