Namco Bandai Games have announced a Dragon Ball Z title for Kinect coming this October 2012. No screens or videos have been released as yet however a press released has mentioned that there will be over 50 playable characters (plus an entirely new character) and over 100 moves available including Goku’s Kamehameha. The possibilities for this game are endless; will there be a two-player mode where gamers are required to perform a successful fusion to become Gogeta? Will Piccolo’s weight shoulder-pads and cape be available as a pre-order bonus? It would definitely be a day 1 purchase if it is.
“There’s going to be no better feeling in the world for fans of the Dragon Ball Z series than standing in front of their screens and unleashing their own fists and raging blasts upon enemies with this game,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing, Namco Bandai Games America. “The Kinect sensor has truly enabled the development team to finally realize the dreams of millions of fans of both the classic games and the timeless original anime. This game will truly represent the next generation of interactive entertainment in the Dragon Ball Z universe.”
Choosing between ‘Story Mode’ and ‘Score Attack’ mode, players will enjoy battles and events following the story of Dragon Ball Z in first-person view for the first time. Dramatic battles use anime-style camerawork and require the player to move in the same way as their character and perform the same attack or movement from a particular famous scene, combining CG demo scenes and battle controls to experience giant boss battles like never before. In ‘Score Attack’ mode, gamers will be required to defeat opponents in 1-on-1 battles to get the highest score.
We’ll have more on this in the coming months.
