If you gamer-type anime fans were holding out hope that the game attached to the Dragonball Evolution flick (yes, of course there's a game; it's a movie. Hello?!) would turn out less horrific than the film looks these days, well...you probably shouldn't read on.


That said, Wired has shots from the game, which unfortunately decided to try and emulate the film version of the characters rather than looking remotely like the original anime/manga characters. In terms of actual gameplay it looks like pretty standard fighter fare, so it might not be awful, depending on whether you like the look of the movie. Make sure to hit Wired up for their whole collection.









UPDATE: Giant Bomb has more....if you want 'em.

Okay it doesnt look that horrible but that aint DB in my eyes
For the makers of the DBE game this is how a Dragon Ball game should look like.......................

The game will be better than the movie. The recent DBZ games have been imo amazing.

I wonder if it'll run on the same engine as the recent DBZ games

More screenshots at Giant Bomb!  Then again, maybe you should just avoid it.

Yeah but he's died more than once on the show from what I remember.  I remember him running down that brick road in the sky for like 10 episodes or something.

Yeah I remember those episodes, on one episode he fell off and had to run Snake Way again.

In defense of this awful looking game, name me the LAST video game based on a movie that was good!
I'm probably the most optimistic about the movie (meaning that I didn't hate every second of the trailer), but this game has no good reason to come out. No video game based on a movie ever deserved to be made.

My god, are they TRYING to make this movie franchise as awful as humanly possible??? I mean, you've already got a perfectly good series of games that have done pretty well and proven to be competent, so why the hell would you put in movie versions of characters in a game that are based off of anime characters that already have several games???

@YotaruVegeta: Spiderman 3 the game was excellent even though the movie sucked.
