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.

hmmm intresting , intresting indeed
This DBZ advent has great potential and I can't wait to see content for it. ^_^
I'm kinda over Dragon Ball Z, I loved the Anime and the PS2 games however I'm just over the stories being retold over and over. @~@
Dragonball will never get an RPG because if its given to a great studio and they create one hell of a fighting system for land/air/and under water in an "actual" open world that's destructible (I.E. JUST CAUSE 2 not the gameplay or destruction just the open world) with all the creatures roaming around like on the show and every single iconic location/city and planet for you to explore and battle. It would put an end to these weak fighters and milking the franchise because that's all anyone would play.Imagine actually having to fly around Namek looking for the Dragonballs then you're forced to hide behind mountains or underwater to avoid Frieza, Zarbon and Dodoria because they are randomly travelling around the planet looking for the Dragonballs as well and destroying villages as they go
Finally this game is getting the care it deserves
Another new developer. Why not let NetherRealm have a go with the DragonBall franchise?
I want an open world DBZ game. I grew up watching DBZ and even skipped a soccer practice once to watch an episode I had been waiting for. I don't care about fighting games, but I would love to play as Goku or a created character and level him or her up to an unstoppable force.
