Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butouden Will Be Making Its Way to the West This October


Arguably the only complaint fans ever had with regard to Arc System Works’ much-anticipated 3DS 2D fighter Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butouden is that it was announced only for Japan. It was a very big problem for Western fans because the 3DS is region-locked, so no – unless they plan on importing the console itself, Extreme Butouden was pretty much a no-no.

Thankfully, a new announcement from Bandai Namco Games allays EU and NA fans’ fears of being left out – as the 2D fighting game is said to be making its way to Europe, Middle East, and Australasia on October 16, followed by North America on October 20.

Bandai Namco has also released an official synopsis and features list:

2D Dragon Ball Z fighting returns with fast-paced, hard-hitting action in Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden! Featuring over 100 characters from the Dragon Ball Z universe, feel the destructive power of bone-crushing blows as you execute and chain together multi-hit combos.
