NAMCO BANDAI GAMES ANNOUNCES DRAGON BALL: RAGING BLAST FOR NEXT-GEN CONSOLES
Classic Hyperkinetic Dragon Ball Action Blasts onto the PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360
Leading video games developer and publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., announced today the highly anticipated fighting title, Dragon Ball®: Raging Blast for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. Featuring the series’ trademark combat battle style, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast will deliver a host of enhanced gameplay features, including completely destructible environments and stunning HD graphics that lend a deeper layer of immersion to the Dragon Ball universe.
Developed by acclaimed game studio SPIKE, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast culls over 70 characters, including transformations, from the Dragon Ball Z tome to battle against each other throughout pivotal moments in the Dragon Ball series. Dragon Ball Z aficionados will be able to relive epic battles as their favorite heroes and villains from the series and also experience alternate universe moments that were left out of the original anime and manga series.
New interactive and destructible environments lend an enhanced layer of intensity to the battle as characters can now take massive damage from being smashed into mountains, buildings and debris during intense battles ensuring epic Dragon Ball Z signature moves are delivered faithfully with devastating results. On top of classic signature moves, characters also benefit from a new “Super Rising” special attack system which allows players to quickly fly upwards throughout massive battle stages, adding a new layer of strategy and tactics to the melee.
“We’re ecstatic to work with such an accomplished studio as SPIKE on a high caliber action packed Dragon Ball game for the next-gen systems,” said Todd Thorston, director of marketing and public relations at NAMCO BANDAI Games America, Inc. “This next evolution in the Dragon Ball video game franchise will deliver more explosive action and a sense of immersive intensity that hasn’t been seen before in the series.”
Dragon Ball: Raging Blast for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system will be available this Fall 2009.
