    Sorry, this is completely unrelated, but here’s an interesting story to run if you haven’t already seen it: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=657221

    • bloodiOS

      So, it would appear that Microsoft’s machine lacks hUMA ;)

  • Dede Ogbe

    Cannot wait to play this on my Vita

  • Zancrow

    This….really doesn’t do it for me.

    • LastBoss

      Do you message people on Youtube?!!!

      • Zancrow


  • SuperLuigi

    Day 1! Don’t care that I will have my xb1. Still playing this, lords of shadow 2, and lightning returns next year.

    • bloodiOS

      Lords of Shadow 2 really should’ve been out this year. I’ve been waiting for it for far too long.

      • SuperLuigi

        I’m hoping this delay is to further polish the game. I for one am happy it is coming out at all. I thought los1 was said they did not sell enough to make a sequel.

        • bloodiOS

          I hope they really make a game to remember (in a good way). After all, whether it sells or not, it’s the last game of this saga, so might as well make it the best it can be.

          • SuperLuigi

            I have always wanted to play as dracula sides that meh wii fighting game. I’m excited

        • Solomon_Kano

          LoS sold well (by Konami’s numbers, it’s the best-selling CV ever) but, going in, MS didn’t know if they’d get to do a sequel or not (hence the after-credits bit).

    • Budgiecat


      • SuperLuigi

        Never seen the anime so I don’t find it too appealing.

  • Nhiroz

    I don’t understand what just happened haha :-)

  • SuperLuigi

    Basically imagine this is a mech game like armoured core except your dbz characters. That’s the best way for me to describe this game lol.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    Looks like Gundam x DBZ, lol.

    • Budgiecat

      Not really. Thats what Zenkai Battle Royal is. Which I’m still wondering why they didn’t just port that instead since it was already made and still gets updates

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Yes really. Looks like it uses a Gundam system for team play, which I wouldn’t be surprised if they borrowed the system actually. It’s good, it just looks weird with DBZ .-.

  • Ivan Junior

    A generation is already ending and we didn’t even get one good dbz game. Praise DBZ Budokai HD.

    • Zancrow

      You mean the Budokai HD which didn’t even include Budokai 2?!

      • TheGameTagerZ

        1 & 3 was good enough for me (as much as I loved playing 2 as far as fighting). Budokai 2’s board game was bad though.

        • Zancrow

          I liked Budokai 2’s story mode. : p
          Was fun with all the What If scenarios and characters.

  • http://popculturesocialclub.com/ DreamDrop♥

    I’m okay with this.

  • Frankiedf

    Oh, it’s DBZ Legends in 3d.

  • refrain

    Why is Goku a SSJ but Krilin is still alive?

    • SuperLuigi

      It doesn’t follow the storyline completely so you can play 4 player.

  • TimesTicking

    What was that thing at the very end?
    Fake Save Data Owner: On

  • Aldridge517

    Teen Gohan’s hair is too big, Frieza’s (1st form) face looks nothing like it’s suppose to. Tiny nitpick.

  • MrKappa

    There is like no gameplay, was the person playing not very good or something?
    This looks worse than Raging Blast which was 5 times worse than Tenkaichi.

    • SOLOmio

      and 10 times worst than Ultimate!!

  • SOLOmio

    I didn’t saw a decent combo! and like Mrkappa said the guy playing really does suck! they still have 10 months from this year and about 5 or 6 months of the next to listen to fans or suggestions and prefect this game!

  • Elvick

    I think it looks cool.

  • Pyrofrost

    I think I’m more interested in the new movie.

  • Kobracon

    This….actually reminds me of an ooooold PS1 DBZ game that wasn’t a fighter. It featured you and several other key characters beating the crap out of a boss. The more you beat up the boss (with simple one button attacks with ground pounds and uppercuts) the more a morale like gauge fills up.

    When its full, the character that last hit will perform their signature move in awesome cutscene like fashion. This seems like that, so i’m gonna say this isn’t a fighting game. Will wait to see more. Would be cool if I was right.
