Dragon Ball Project Z Game Revealed, Check Out The First Trailer

Relive the story of Dragon Ball Z.


Bandai Namco announced some big Dragon Ball-related news during the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals. In addition to confirming a second season of DLC is in development for the fighting game, the publisher shared the first trailer for its new Dragon Ball Z action RPG.

The trailer, which you can watch above, doesn't showcase much in the way of gameplay, but it appears the game will recount the story of Dragon Ball Z. The video recreates some iconic moments from the series, such as the first time Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan during his battle with Frieza. We also briefly see him walking past a handful of familiar locations, including Capsule Corp. and the Kame House.

Now Playing: Dragon Ball Game: Project Z - Official Announcement Trailer

"True warriors are in a neverending search for the ultimate fight," the narrator says. "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."

The upcoming Dragon Ball action RPG is still without a proper title. Likewise, Bandai Namco hasn't pinned down a release date, but the game is slated to launch sometime this year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. It is being developed by CyberConnect 2, the studio behind Asura's Wrath and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy.

In other Dragon Ball news, six more DLC characters are on the way to Dragon Ball FighterZ. The previously teased Jiren will launch later this week, on January 31, alongside the newly announced Videl, while Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta and Broly from the new Dragon Ball Super movie will follow "soon." The remaining two fighters have yet to be announced.
