If you’re a fan of the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, well you will be pleased to hear that it will be making its way onto the Xbox 360. While this is definitely not the first time that the Dragon Ball franchise has been adapted for video game consoles, this is probably the first time that Dragon Ball Z will feature support for the Xbox Kinect. Yes, Namco Bandai has officially announced Dragon Ball Z Kinect which is expected to make its way onto our consoles come October later this year.
Players will have access to over 50 playable characters and will offer a “Story Mode” and a “Score Attack” mode. The former will offer players first-person battles and CG cut scenes based on the storyline of the series, while “Score Attack” will basically be one-on-one battles for points. And yes, you will be able to pull of Dragon Ball Z moves using gestures which has been described by Namco Bandai’s Vice President of Marketing, Carlson Choi, to be “no better feeling in the world for fans of the Dragon Ball Z series than standing in front of their screens and unleashing their own fists and raging blasts upon enemies with this game” Certainly sounds like fun. So, who’s looking forward to it? I know I am.
