Bandai Namco have decided to resurrect the Dragon Ball Budokai Tenkaichi series after a 15 year hiatus - Dragon Ball Sparking! Zero. A 3D fighter using huge destructible arenas, the game faithfully brings the legendary fighters and their respective powers to the game so that players can recreate their favourite battles.
The game, once again developed by Spike Chunsoft, will use Unreal Engine 5 to bring the game to life with a new level of fidelity not seen in the series before.
"After more than 15 years, we are happy to bring one of the most beloved DRAGON BALL game franchises to new heights, giving players what they have been waiting for while introducing it to a whole new generation," said Arnaud Muller, CEO at Bandai Namco Europe. "DRAGON BALL Z: BUDOKAI TENKAICHI pioneered 3D action battles and DRAGON BALL: Sparking! ZERO continues the legacy while adding new genre-defining features made possible only with the latest game platforms to deliver one of the most immersive anime game experiences of all time."
The game’s gravity-defying battles promise to ‘shake the earth, break the heavens’, with each DRAGON BALL character’s signature destructive powers and Ki abilities showcased in stunning detail with damage capable of destroying entire parts of the arena.
