Dr. Wheelo, Jackie Chun Join Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden Game as Assists
posted on by Daryl Lee Hale
This year's 26th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday that the Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden Nintendo 3DS game will include Dr. Wheelo and Jackie Chun as Z Assist characters.
Dr. Wheelo, antagonist of the Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest film, is a scientist with a cyborg body who experiments in biotechnology.
Jackie Chun is an alternate identity that Master Roshi uses to enter a tournament and disguise himself from his students. The character is a parody of martial artist Jackie Chan.
With "Z Assist," Bulma and Chichi (among other characters) will provide support to players via Bulma's inventions from Capsule and Chichi's fury (which fills the screen with a giant speech balloon of her venting). Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (Super Saiyan God SS) form Vegeta will also appear as a Z Assist character in the game and is available through a code on Japanese tickets for the Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' film. Players can employ "Ultimate Arts" finishing moves, and the game will feature unique layouts and stages.
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden will ship in Japan on June 11 for 5,690 yen (about US$47), and first copies of the game will come bundled with a Dragon Ball Disk Cross disk featuring the version of Frieza that appears in the Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no F (Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F') film, a product code to download the Super Famicom (Super Nintendo) game Dragon Ball Z Cho Butoden 2 game to the Nintendo 3DS, and a card for Dragon Ball Heroes featuring the film version of Goku. If players have save data from the Dragon Ball Heroes Ultimate Mission 2 Nintendo 3DS game, Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta will appear within Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden.
The franchise debuted on the Super Famicom system in Japan with Dragon Ball Z: Super Butōden in 1993. Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butōden was released for the Nintendo DS in 2011.
