Goku Returns to Save the WiiAtari today announced that Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 is in development for Wii and PlayStation 2. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 will deliver an extreme 3D fighting experience, improving upon last year's game with over 150 playable characters, enhanced fighting techniques, beautifully refined effects and shading techniques, making each character's effects more realistic, and over 20 battle stages. Some of the new characters will include King Vegeta, Nail, and King Cold. The environments have also been enhanced to feature day and night stages. The power of the moon in the night stages gives players additional ways to transform their characters and lets fans recreate some of their favorite memories from the show. "Atari is incredibly excited to offer the ultimate chapter in the Budokai Tenkaichi series with over 20 new characters that have never been seen in any other DBZ video games such as Nail, King Cold and King Vegeta and battle stages that fans will love," said Emily Anadu, Senior Product Manager, Atari, Inc. "Each year, the developers refine the game to bring fans closer to feeling like they are actually playing the show." Atari will also be implementing an improved control system for the Wii which will allow players to easily mimic signature moves and execute devastating energy attacks as they are performed in the Dragon Ball Z animated series. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 is set for release this holiday season.
