Dragonball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi confirmed, release date announced!

Namco Bandai have announced today that the official name for the upcoming title, previously only known as DragonBall Game Project Age, will now be known as DragonBall Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi.

DBZ: Ultimate Tenkaichi was the rumoured name for the upcoming game after fans were asked to vote in a poll created by Namco Bandai EU, a poll in which it was stated that Ultimate Tenkaichi was the preferred name by Namco Bandai. Rumours were then further fueled by European retailer, Play.com, who listed the game on their website under the new name.

To celebrate the new name, Namco Bandai have released a new action packed trailer for the game which nicely shows off the manga-style graphics, as well as the recently revealed Oozaru Vegeta story mode battle.

Also announced today was the release date for the game, which will be “available on all European shores” for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on October the 28th, and in the US on October 25th.

Information has been flying in on the new DragonBall Z title thick and fast ever since the opening of the Japan Expo in Paris. Namco Bandai marked the occasion by releasing another trailer.

The latest trailer puts fans of the series at ease thanks to the inclusion of Goku‘s Super Saiyan 3 form – a form which all but confirms the fact the game will feature characters going up to at least DBZ’s final saga in which the warriors face off against the mighty Majin Buu.

Fans will also be pleased to see that Spike are doing everything they can to stay true to the original series, even going as far as to take entire combos directly from the show as they happened punch-for-punch on-screen. In fact, the entire game boasts a much more cinematic feel than its predecessors, with giant boss battles and quick time events woven into the fabric of the earth shaking battles.
