Starting this fall the famed video game publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment America has announced that the Z Fighters will be finding themselves at home on the Nintendo 3DS and the New Nintendo 3DS XL in their first game on the handheld. Set to launch on October 20th, 2015, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden will be released at local retailers, but also on the Nintendo eShop this fall thanks to developer Arc System Works.
With Arc System Works at the helm, it’s not surprising to see Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden supporting its high paced and excitingly energetic 1-on-1 2D combat actin to the handhelds while boasting 20 playable characters and the supporting cast of 100 characters that fans will recognize from the long running franchise. Through going online with local multiplayer, fans will be able to take on their friends in their long awaited dream matchups.
“The DRAGON BALL Z franchise continues to delight gamers around the world, most recently with this year’s release of DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “DRAGON BALL Z: EXTREME BUTODEN lets players take DRAGON BALL on the road while delivering a tight and engrossing fighting game experience developed by one of the most respected 2D fighting game developers in Japan.”
DRAGON BALL Z: EXTREME BUTODEN will be available at video game retailers and the Nintendo eShop throughout North America and Latin America starting on October 20, 2015 and will follow up with a launch in Brazil on October 23, 2015 exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL handhelds.
