Latest Game Releases and Movie 13 Update
Dragonball Z Movie 13: “Wrath of the Dragon”
The final Dragonball Z movie will be released on DVD this fall. Current sources have the release date listed as September 12, 2006. This movie contains the exciting battle between the Z Warriors and the demon Hildegarn, the only use of Son Goku’s awesome Dragonfist attack in the Z series, and the origins of the sword carried by Trunks. Movie 13 is one worth owning, so keep an eye out for it later this year.
Super Dragonball Z
The latest Dragonball Z video game is an arcade port to the Playstation 2 console. Developed by some of the very same people who created the classic fighting game Street Fighter II, Super Dragonball Z is a fighting game in the same vein as its legendary predecessor. Super Dragonball Z boasts a roster of only 18 playable characters. While this may seem rather limited to many fans of Dragonball, it allows for each of the characters to play in a unqiue way with individual move sets. This is favorable to some fighting game fans over having 100 characters that are nothing but generic copies of each other with identical move sets. July 18th, 2006 is the scheduled release date for this game. That is not far off, so be on the look out for this one real soon.
Dragonball Advanced Adventure
I was wrong, this game finally arrived on our shores and is now available for the Gameboy Advance. One of the best 2D platformer/brawlers I’ve played, I highly recommend this game.
Dragonball Z Budokai 3 Special Edition
Also, don’t forget to grab Dragonball Z Budokai 3 Special Edition if you see it and haven’t picked it up yet. At only $19.99 with battle engine fixes, additional playable characters, Japanese voices option and other additions over the original version, it would be a mistake to pass it up. Check my previous news update on that title for information on grabbing the right copy.
