Dragon Ball Z to Have an RPG Released on 3DS
The latest issue of V Jump magazine out in Japan has revealed a treat for Dragon Ball fans across the world. Bandai Namco has been announced to be creating a new RPG for the Nintendo 3DS set in the Dragon Ball universe. The game has been reported to be titled “Dragon Ball: Project Fusion” and is slated to have a release in 2016 in Japan.
Not much is known about the game, such as release price, game mechanics, character roster, exact release date, or whether there are any plans for localization. The very little we know of the game comes from pictures from the magazine, which features a picture of a Super Saiyan Goku doing a fusion dance with Super Saiyan Broly. However, it is unclear how this game will fit with the storyline of the manga and anime, if it will at all, considering Broly is from the movies, which are widely regarded as non-canon.
With any luck, Dragon Ball: Project Fusion will be brought over internationally to see a release outside of Japan. The last Dragon Ball game from the RPG genre to be released out to the western audiences was “Attack of the Saiyans” by Monolith Soft. Perhaps they might be the company developing the game. If not, hopes that Tri-Crescendo could potentially work on it since they have worked with Bandai Namco in the past.
