Blazblue Developer Bringing Dragon Ball Z To 3DS

According Japanese comic magazine V Jump, Blazblue and Guilty Gear creator Arc System Works will be bringing the popular Dragon Ball Z anime to the 3DS in the form of Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden this summer. According to the article, the game will be a traditional fighting game of the sort Arc System Works is known for, and will feature both one-on-one and team-based combat. Set to feature over 100 popular characters from across the DBZ universe, though it is not known as of writing how many of those characters will be playable. Extreme Butōden will also mark Dragon Ball Z‘s first appearance on the 3DS console.


Dragon Ball Z has revitalized the gaming world as of late, with the upcoming Dragon Ball Xenoverse, which drops on the 24th of this month, being the 15th game in the series to appear on a home console. Xenoverse features a brand new storyline in which villains known as the Timebreakers rewrite the DBZ timeline for their own evil ends, and it is up to the player, as a custom character of their own creation, to stop them.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
