Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z gets Naruto-tastic launch day bonus

If you're planning on picking up the upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z, you may want to consider investing in a pre-order before the game is released. Today, publisher Namco Bandai revealed that the fighter will include two different pre-order bonuses at two different retailers. One will grant access to Super Vegito, while the other lets players assume the role of Super Saiyan Bardock. Which retailer gets which? We have no idea!

No matter where you pre-order the game, you'll walk away with a little something special. Anyone who gets the first batch of releases will be able to dress up Goku in the Naruto Uzumaki Sage Mode costume. Namco Bandai loves cross-pollination, doesn't it?

Not sure if the game is for you? Well, you're in luck--we had a chance to check it out at the Tokyo Game Show, and recorded a quick video showing it off. Take a look:

    Another DragonBall Z fighting game???? Even as a huge, avid fan of the anime from start to finish, this is naseous. Why does the GameBoy, Nintendo DS and Wii get the action adventure/RPG games and all the consoles get(outside of Sagas) get uninspired fighting game that looks horrible and does the anime no justice whatsoever? Naruto gets 2 action adventure games, InuYasha gets a somewhat decent DS game, Bleach gets an action adventure game only in foreign countries, yet DragonBall Z gets cookie cutter fighting game after cookie cutter fighting game. I think the fans(at least the ones I've spoke to) are tired of this treatment. Namco Bandai could make a fortune abandoning the fighting games and starting with DragonBall and making some kick ass RPGs like Attack of the Saiyans

    That game looks horrible. I lost interest in these games after Burst Limit. They don't follow the series and it's just the same flying around in awkward 3D environments, no unique ideas or moves.

    This made me pre-order when I read the title.

    Which retailer did you (or are you) going to order it from?

    *Looks around to make sure it is safe.* GameStop :P

    I wonder which character they'll give away? I'm going to go for SSJ Bardock. I find it absolutely rediculous that you have to pre order for SSJ Vegito, considering he's been playable in most DBZ games without the need for preorder. Mine as well get something I haven't played before, right?

    Indeed. Works for me.

    That's what you get for acting the mickey!!

    A true saiyan always sprinkles when he tinkles!

    I can't stop laughing
  • Shnubby - September 19, 2013 2:07 p.m.

    I am real super sand!
  • Frieza - September 19, 2013 5:03 p.m.

    Beh! Super pooper scoopers are just legend-eh!
  • Shnubby - September 20, 2013 12:47 p.m.

    You'll see, Freezy Pop! I'm stronger than an ant... if an ant were... THIS BIG!

    Here will be no local co-op in this game. Only online co-op. It's a shame, but that's he way it is. You have to pre order to play as Super Vegito? I can understand Super Saiyan Bardock, but... Super Vegito? Why? He was in all the other games and you didn't have to ore order to get him. And it's not like he's a What If character, so... why? I'm glad that we're finally getting a console game that has a style similar to Zenkai Battle Royal though. This might be the first game to actually be worthy of replacing my Budokai Tenkaichi 3! I just hope there is a satisfactory amount of characters to play as (and by that I mean everybody in the series).
