Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden Heads West for 3DS in October

October 16 in Europe, the Middle East, Australasia & October 20 in Americas

Bandai Namco Entertainment announced on Tuesday that it will release Arc System Works' Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden fighting game for Nintendo 3DS in Europe, the Middle East, and Australasia on October 16. It will then release the game in the Americas on October 20.

The fighting game features over 120 characters (only about two dozen are playable, the rest are Z Assists characters) from Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball franchise.

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 shipped in Japan on June 11 for 5,690 yen (about US$47). First copies of the game in Japan came 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 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.
