The newest in the long line of Dragon Ball Z fighting games, previously known as Dragon Ball Game Project Age 2011, has received release dates and a new name, decided by the fans themselves.
Currently under development by Spike, developers of the Tenkaichi and Raging Blast games, Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi features destructible environments, an enhanced story mode and graphics based on the original manga series. While the game clearly draws from many aspects of past Spike-developed games, they are making changes to the battle system to make it more accessible to new players while retaining depth for the more hardcore fans. Among the biggest additions to the new story mode are boss battles with giant enemies, such as Great Ape Vegeta pictured above.
The full character roster hasn't yet been released, but considering the myriad of fighters available in previous games, there will likely be a wide variety to throw down with. Dragon Ball GT characters are also confirmed to appear in the game.
The new name was decided by fans after publisher Namco Bandai reached out through message boards and other social channels. The choices were: Tenkaichi Z, Saiyan Rising, Awakening Saiyans, Ultimate Tenkaichi, and Saiyan Warriors, with Ultimate Tenkaichi making the cut.
Here's the North American trailer from Namco Bandai:
The game will launch on October 25th in North America and October 28th in Europe this year on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
