DragonBall Game Project Age first trailer and screens!




Following the recent reveal of a new DragonBall Z game in development, Namco Bandai have – at their Level Up event in Dubai – officially announced the new title as DragonBall Game Project Age (working title), set for release in fall 2011 on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

DragonBall Game Project Age is being developed by Spike co. ltd, the same people behind past 3D DBZ fighters such as the DragonBall Z Tenkaichi and DragonBall Raging Blast series, however this time around Spike are supposedly working on making something different with the ultimate aim of creating a new landmark in the DragonBall Z videogame series.

Despite claims of creating a completely new game, it seems clear that Spike are attempting to take the series back to previous generations with claims of “Tenkaichi heritage!” in Game project Age. This may sound like a bad thing at first, but as many fans will argue, the Tenkaichi series was superior in replicating the high paced, explosive intensity of the DragonBall Z anime series, and based on the screenshots below, the game will definitely be more explosive and flashy than the past few titles released.

DragonBall Game Project Age also boasts characters that have been drawn straight from the original DragonBall Z manga series which is something that Spike were keen to do as upgrading the graphics has been a priority for the upcoming title. This graphical upgrade has also been extended to the environments and means that players will be experiencing totally destructable battlefields, realistic craters and energy beams cutting across the sky in a more realistic fashion than that of previous titles.

Fans of the original Japanese voices and music will be delighted to know that both are present in the enhanced story mode of DragonBall Game Project Age, and as well as this, Namco Bandai are also promising a special mode which will allow players to experience the brand new age of DragonBall Z. The controls for the new title have also received some thought and are being designed to be closer to those of the Tenkaichi series – something that fans will be delighted about based on complaints received for the most recent DBZ titles. It is also worth mentioning that the beginning of the new trailer (posted below) features a picture of Goku and Vegeta with rocks flying around the screen in an image which screams 3D – perhaps Namco Bandai are hinting at 3D compatibility for the new title? With so many contemporary games allowing 3D as an option this surely isn’t such a farfetched idea.

Are you excited for the new DragonBall Z title on the way, or do you think that it’s time the series was put to rest for a bit?  Be sure to let us know in the comments and don’t forget to check out the new Game Project Age trailer and screenshots below!
