I am so very happy that game developers have finally figured out that a Dragon Ball game doesn’t have to be entirely focused on fighting; and for that matter, always taking place during the Dragon Ball Z timeline. Finally, the adventure manga/anime Dragon Ball will get the classic side-scroller game it deserves; maybe a few decades too late, but it’s coming and that's all that matters.
It’s name is Dragon Ball: Tenkaichi Daibouken, and will be a Wii exclusive game. The best part is, for a game on the Wii it looks absolutely beautiful; with cell-shaded graphics that appear as if they were lifted directly from the anime itself. Siliconera states that this game has not been announced for an international release yet, but bets the farm that it will get one.
I have been waiting for a game like this forever. Dragon Ball lends itself more to an adventure type game than a fighting game, and what better way to convey this adventure then a semi 2D-3D side-scrolling game. What do you think? Would you buy this for your Wii if it was released internationally?
Funny thing is, this is probably another after effect of Dragon Ball: Evolution.
