Dragon Ball Fusions 3DS Game's Promo Shows Fusion Characters
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of Bandai Namco Entertainment's upcoming Dragon Ball Fusions Nintendo 3DS game began streaming a promotional video for the game on Friday. The video previews the game's gameplay elements, including the Fusion system, the character creation, and the game's roster of characters from the first Dragon Ball to Dragon Ball Super.
The game is slated for August 4, and will retail for 5,700 yen (about US$52). The Nintendo 3DS bundle 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).
The game's Nintendo 3DS bundle includes a New Nintendo 3DS LL (XL in North America) unit with a Dragon Ball Fusions themed design (seen right). The bundle also includes the unit's documentation, warranty, a copy of the game, an original menu theme, and the contents of the first print limited edition.
First print limited editions will include a download code that allows players to use Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Son Goku immediately from the start of the game, and a "Gohanks EX" card that can be used in the Dragon Ball Heroes arcade game.
A manga adaptation of the game debuted in Shueisha's Saikyo Jump magazine on April 1.
