Namco Bandai to Release Dragonball Z Budokai HD Collection

In case flailing like a spastic nerd isn’t your preferred controls for a Dragonball Z game, then Namco Bandai’s recent confirmation of an HD remastered collection of the Dragonball Z Budokai games may give you exactly the kind of Dragonball Z fighting experience you crave.

For the uninitiated, the Budokai series is a cel-shaded 2.5D fighting game series that was released on the PS2 and Gamecube, which is considered by fans as the first Dragonball Z-licensed game that actually did justice to the license. While not the kind of fighter you’re used to if you cut your teeth on Street Fighter, it allowed fans to relive the fights in the anime – complete with supersonic speeds, aerial flights, and planet-busting beam attacks. The Budokai series is also noteworthy for being the first Dragonball Z fighting game that allowed characters to transform in-game.

The Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection contains Budokai and Budokai 3, and will feature high resolution (completely remastered, instead of upscaled, they say. To me, it looked like it’s a higher resolution render with oil poured to make it all shiny) graphics and support for trophies and achievements. There’s no specific release date yet (besides “winter!”), but Namco has stated that it will only come out for the European market at the moment. There’s no word on whether they plan to release one for the US market.
