The lights are on
Battle of Z is a new take on the Dragon Ball Z fighter from a new developer, and we played through a short demo to see how the game is coming together.
Battle of Z opens up the combat arena giving players a full range of movement in 8-player battle royales. Video producer Ben Hanson and myself have been fans of the show since its North American airing on Cartoon Network more than 10 years a ago, so we decided to take a look at the new fighting system in action.

8 players? This really has peaked my interests.
It's about freaken time more than 2 people can be in the battle. It was so lame "tagging" people in during 2v2's. Now they can finally make a game that actually captures the DBZ feel.
One of the only new releases I want.
I could never get into dragon ball z. Its just the costumes, they bug me to much.
Super Saiyan God makes entire sense after you watch the movie. It seems odd out of context, however.
ehh i'll most likely wait till it gets cheaper to get/play it.
My wish for an amazing DBZ game has been long standing. At first I thought a Final Fantasy esque game would be amazing, and I still do think that, but with the technology we have now, I'd much rather they make an open world game with a customizable protagonist. The game would be full of adventure, fighting baddies, and hopefully would be non-linear with plenty of interesting side quests. It's a tall order, and I suspect it will always be a dream, but man it would be so awesome.
If they can include more of the movie villains like Turles and Cooler while having the cinematic Super/Ultimate Moves similar to Ultimate Tenkaichi, I'm definitely getting. I loved the wealth of characters that Raging Blast 2 had but I found the Ultimate Moves unimpressive, after all it's cool to see a part of the planet explode, and that they didn't include Omega Shenron in the roster.
I love this show. It's just so cool watching everyone beat the crap out of each other. I haven't really liked the games all that much since Tenkaichi 3, but this looks like it's shaking up a little. They really need an artstyle that nails it though.
I'm still waiting for them to make a true DBZ open world(s) action or rpg game. Not sure why pretty much every DBZ game has been a fighting one.
they mentioned Dragonball Z Kai and my colon erupted. I hate Kai so much. It's a soulless abomination and perversion of Dragonball Z
