Development of Dragon Ball: Battle of Z Will Be Handled by Artdink

According to a Siliconera report, the next Dragon Ball fighting game from Namco Bandai will not be developed by Spike, which handled the previous Budokai Tenkaichi and Raging Blast games. The dev in charge this time around will be Artdink.

This is interesting to note because Artdink’s forte is mecha games, judging by their critically acclaimed videogame adaptations for the Gundam and Macross titles. This should bring some fresh new ideas to the upcoming DBZ fighter, which admittedly is growing stale despite being consistently good.

Dragon Ball: Battle of Z will have ports for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PS Vita. The titles will see a Japanese and North American release, though specific release dates have not been announced yet.
