‘Lil Goku won’t be left alone to take on the Red Ribbon Army in this action ‘n adventure, button ‘n stylus game.  You - - that’s right, you! - - the eager player will be able to play as his buddies Krillin, Bulma and Yamcha, among others.   You won’t be left alone to take on the Red Ribbon Army, either. If you so choose, you can harness the as-mighty-as-a-spirit-bomb magic of Wi-Fi and play co-op with all your alien-smashing buddies on their DS's.

You know, those visuals actually make it look like this could be a really fun pick up.

Dig Deeper into Dragon Ball

Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball franchise is about the adventures of Goku and his friends from his early childhood to his death and beyond. It begins with a young Saiyan boy named Goku after falling of a cliff and losing his memory, and leads on to an adventure of a lifetime!
