Yesterday, unlike the accidental trailer drop for Dragon Ball FighterZ’s second DLC season characters, the Bandai Namco Twitter account posted a new trailer for DRAGON BALL GAME – PROJECT Z on their Twitter and YouTube accounts during the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour finals tournament.
The trailer shares brief footage of Goku’s journey from the beginning of DragonBall Z with his son, Gohan, to the well-known Frieza Saga, where he first took on the iconic Super Saiyan form to fight the evil emperor, Frieza. Yet, not much is shown regarding game-play besides Goku walking in a forest, and in front of Kame House and Capsule Corps. Most of the fights shown in the trailer are presumably in-game cut-scenes, but that’s a guesstimate on my part.
Nevertheless, the narrator in the trailer shared a few words about the game–as iconic moments from the Dragon Ball Z Anime & Manga appeared. Here’s what the narrator said.
“True warriors are in a neverending search for the ultimate fight. This is the story of the mysterious Dragon Balls. A story about determination, despair, and hope. This is the story of Goku, the one they call Kakarot.”
Based on the footage shown in the first trailer, there’s no telling how much content the developer, CyberConnect2 will cover in this Dragon Ball Z Action RPG game. If I were to assume the game’s footage is to be taken–as the game’s start to conclusion, we’re left with two arcs being covered. These are the Saiyan Saga (Raditz, Nappa, and Vegeta) and the Frieza Saga.
However, I believe there’s a chance that we’ll see this game reach the source material’s final arc before DragonBall Super (the Buu Saga). Though I can see them only covering up to the saga that focused on Future Trunks, the Androids, and Cell. Nonetheless, this game’s first trailer was well-received by many fans online. Based on the path the development team is going, it might become a cult-classic.
Furthermore, I believe the game’s current title may be a placeholder–as Bandai Namco may reveal its real-title alongside its release date. Moreover, according to the trailer, the game will release on PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Sorry Nintendo Switch fans. CyberConnect 2, “the studio behind Asura’s Wrath and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy,” according GameSpot.com, are developing the title.
We’ll update you all when more footage and details are shared about DRAGON BALL GAME – PROJECT Z from Bandai Namco or elsewhere.
