Can you ever have enough Dragon Ball Z games? Bandai Namco Games believes no, you can never have enough Dragon Ball Z games. And in the case of smartphones, we sorta agree. The number of official DBZ games on smartphones can be counted on the fingers of one’s hand, and all of them are Japanese-exclusive. The recent reveal of Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle is therefore very much appreciated if it weren’t for the fact that it’s Japanese-exclusive again.

For those of us stuck with Dragon Ball-less smartphones, BamCo has released a new trailer for Dokkan Battle, which should either placate you because you can at least look at the game in action, or send you into a table-flipping rage as people from another country once again gets all the games that you want. You can check out the trailer below:

Bandai Namco Games has recently revealed more details about the upcoming fighting game Dragon Ball Xenoverse, mostly regarding the roster. First is that they will have both Beerus and Whis, the antagonists from the last DBZ movie, Battle of Gods. Next, they also revealed that fans can expect massive boss battles, one of which is against the Great Ape Vegeta. Those of you who are still playing Budokai Tenkaichi 3 on the Wii or PS2 (still an awesome game, right?) will be glad to know that it’s a properly scaled Great Ape now.

Beerus and Whis will be part of the Story Mode, and due to the story being primarily about time travel, it was suggested that the events from Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods can be changed depending on the user’s actions. You can also check out some screenshots showing off the Great Ape Vegeta in action:

Arc System Works has just released a lengthy trailer for the next installment in the Guilty Gear series of fighting games, Guilty Gear Xrd –Sign-. The new game is notable for using the Unreal Engine 3, which enhanced its normally 2D cel-shaded visuals and allowed for camera cuts that make the gameplay look like anime cutscenes.

As for the trailer, we weren’t kidding when we said “lengthy.” The whole video clocks in at 12 minutes, providing an extensive overview of the game and hopefully telling you everything you need to know if you’re still on the fence about scoring a copy:

Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- hits Japan on December 4, followed by North America on December 16.

Gruppo Alcuni has recently announced that the exclusive rights to the new feature film Pet Pals in Windland has been acquired by International Production Associates (IPA) for Japan. IPA will be joining Ro-In Entertainment as rights holder for the film, with Ro-In holding the rights for the MENA region.

Pet Pals in Windland follows the titular group of cute animals as they go up against their arch nemesis Crow Witch. The title takes its cue from the place that the Pet Pals live in, where everything works due to the power of the wind. The place is threatened by the evil Crow Witch, who seeks to get hold of the “Spinwheel,” which is responsible for generating the wind in the town. As expected, the Pet Pals are not going to let the Crow Witch get away with her dastardly plan.

Fans who have already scored a copy of Pokemon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire on the Nintendo 3DS are probably digging into their copies now and enjoying the remakes, but The Pokemon Company is not yet done releasing trailers in support of the games. However, their latest trailer is different because it’s not the average CM or even a bunch of gameplay footages. Instead, it’s a full on animated short. And it’s in English too!

You can check out the animated short below:

A bunch of pictures from Fox and Blue Sky’s upcoming CG animated adaptation of Peanuts is already floating around on the Internet, but for those of you who are skeptical of non-moving images and their ability to show a film’s quality, the official trailer has finally been released by Fox. And it’s in HD, too.

People who don’t want the franchise to turn into CG should be glad to know that it’s not trying to be realistic. In fact, the CG feels more like a cross between stop motion and the original 2D.

You can check out the official Peanuts movie trailer below:

The Peanuts Movie is directed by Steve Martino, and written by Bryan Schulz, Craig Schulz and Cornelius Uliano. The film is scheduled for a Nov. 6, 2015 release.

Fox and Blue Sky Studios have recently released a handful of new preview images for their upcoming CG animated Peanuts Movie. Based on the iconic comic strip and cartoon franchise from Charles M. Schulz, The Peanuts Movie marks the first time Snoopy and the gang will be portrayed in 3D Animation (okay, barring the 3D vigeogames.)

Based on the preview, the CG was used to portray a sleek cartoonish style instead of trying to depict the characters realistically. This bodes well for the production, as it means the visuals won’t get dated so easily.

We’ve previously posted an entry about a possible merger between DreamWorks Animation and Hasbro, but it seems like the merger has been put on hold. The supposed reason of the talks breaking down is that Hasbro’s stock fell when news of the talks got around.

Hasbro’s stock fell 6.1 percent after the merger talks became public, with analysts showing concerns over the logic behind the merger as well as DreamWorks’ steep asking price. Once word got around that the merger has been halted, Hasbro’s stock managed to recover by 2.7 percent.

Currently, there is no news on whether the merger is temporarily on hold or completely off the table.

After the success of Battle of Gods (and because of its open-ended nature), it is not surprising that 2015 will see another Dragon Ball Z movie titled “Revival of F.” The January issue of V-Jump contains a visual for said film, and aside from the reveal that the F in the title is for Freeza, it also features a few things worth noting.

First is that Whis and Beerus from Battle of Gods are back. Next is Freeza. Given how powerful Goku is now, it stands to reason that Freeza has gained a massive power-up. Mainly because if he retains his power level during the Future Trunks saga, he’s going to get curbstomped by the Z-Warriors.

The film also introduces new characters Sorbet and Tagoma, who are said to be remnants of Freeza’s army. Another noticeable thing is the new designs on their uniforms – the scouters and the saiyan armor all look slightly different, and Goku’s gi has a different emblem. Does this mean he’s been training under Whis?

Dragon Ball Z – Revival of F is scheduled to open April 18th in 2D and 3D formats.
