Update: Dragon Ball Project Z Is A New Dragon Ball RPG Coming This Year
Announced right before the conclusion of the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour finals event, Dragon Ball Project Z is an RPG set in the world of Dragon Ball. Unlike Dragon Ball Xenoverse, which focuses on telling a new story set in that universe, Project Z returns to the series' roots, retelling the classic story of Dragon Ball Z from the beginning.
The trailer showed off several scenes from Z in a 3D cel-shaded style. We only saw a brief glimpse of gameplay, showing Goku walking around places like West City and the Kame House and doesn't offer many clues for how, exactly, the game will play.
A press release for the game, however, has offered some additional details that weren't clear in the trailer. The game will be an action-rpg, and you will play as Goku. It is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and It is being developed by CyberConnect2 (known predominantly for the Naruto Shippuden series). And finally, Dragon Ball Project Z is only a code name and its official name will be revealed soon.
The game is set to release sometime this year. You can watch the full trailer announcing the game below.
