The lights are on
Spike, the development team behind the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi and Raging Blast games, is not the team behind Battle of Z.
Instead, the game is being created by Artdink, a studio that mostly specializes in Gundam and Macross games. Not many of its titles have been localized for the United States. Natsume recently brought its game Carnage Heart EXA to the PSP as a downloadable title. There are a few other Artdink games that made it to North America, but the one Game Informer readers are likely most familiar with is a little game called Tail of The Sun.
For more on the Battle of Z, you can check out the game's announcement trailer. The game should be available this year on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PlayStation Vita.
Our TakeYou know who I would like to see create a Dragon Ball Z Video game? CyberConnect2. Its Naruto games are always impressive, and Asura's Wrath had a lot of moments that seemed to be inspired by Dragon Ball Z's insane over-the-top action. Hopefully that development team gets a shot at putting Goku's immense power in players' hands.
