This year's 27th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday that the Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden Nintendo 3DS game will include Launch, Grandpa Gohan, and the tournament announcer as Z Assist characters.
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.
