Atari may be in the process of cutting costs by selling its studios and licenses to other game publishers, but one property it isn't giving up is the Dragon Ball Z license. The anime has been the basis of several games for consoles and handhelds alike and will be the subject of two more this year.

First up will be Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai: Another Road for the PlayStation Portable. The game is the sequel to the series' debut on the PSP, last March's Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai. Another Road adds a new story, an enhanced fighting system, and more than 50 new fighting skills and ultimate attacks to the 3D fighting game. The game is currently scheduled to be released in March.

The second portable Dragon Ball Z offering is Dragon Ball Z Harukanaru Densetsu for the Nintendo DS. Unlike Another Road's 3D fighting core, Harukanaru Densetsu combines card-based gameplay with role-playing elements. The game is expected to be released this spring.
