The First Next-Gen Dragon Ball Z Title Gets Announced, And It Looks Incredible
I have a confession to make. I am a child. I am already quaking in my boots for the chance to return to Dragon Ball Z. The most recent title, Dragon Ball Z Battle of Z didn’t live up to the hype and was only on last gen systems, but it seems that at last we are getting our first next-gen Dragon Ball Z game.
A few days ago a new “Dragonball” game was outed by the Japanese press with some screens. The screens were all from the Dragon Ball Z saga though, so I’m not sure why the press release simply calls the game “Dragon Ball New Project.”

Today, after the leak, Namco Bandai has released the first three screenshots, which you can see right here.
Interestingly enough, the game is on PS4, PS3 and Xbox 360, with no mention of an Xbox One version. Whether that will eventually be in the pipeline or is off the cards completely is unknown at this point. There’s no word on a release date either.
However what we do know is that the game will have a new character bearing the emblem of Capsule Corporation, and you can see some of him in the screenshot up above. The new Dragon Ball Z is also promising characters with facial expressions “never seen before” and new cel shaded graphics that are only possible on PS4.
The only thing that worries me is the above screenshot. In one of my favourite Dragon Ball Z games, Raging Blast 2, the character models and animations looked fantastic but the environments looked really dull. I hope that this won’t be the case, so we’ll have to wait for a gameplay trailer.
Otherwise, colour me giddy like a school girl who just got a wink from her crush.
A new teaser website has been launched in honour of the game, which promises that a trailer will be released “soon.”
