Namco Bandai has been uncharacteristically noncommittal about the title of its next Dragon Ball game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, heretofore referring to the game as simply "Dragon Ball Game Project AGE 2011." However, that opaque stance cleared up today, as the publisher officially attached the moniker of Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi to the game and dated it for October 25.

Like the Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast games, Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi will be developed by Spike Co. Ltd. The new game will cover the Dragon Ball Z series and boast "a massive character selection." Namco Bandai is touting the title as "a new landmark game" in the franchise, with a revamped story mode and destructible environments.

Fans of martial arts-themed anime will also be pleased to know that Namco Bandai is prepping a new installment in its Naruto series. Titled Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, the game will be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2012.

In development at CyberConnect2, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations is the latest installment in Namco Bandai's long-running fighting series, and as with the new DBZ title, it will feature a large swath of characters that span every generation of its manga inspiration. This latest installment in the series has a particular emphasis for online play, and it also marks the arrival of fan-favorite ninjas Zabuza and Haku.
