Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden Gameplay Trailer Released at Japan Expo

During a recent presentation at Japan Expo, Bandai Namco games showed off a new gameplay trailer for Arc System Works’ upcoming 3DS fighter, Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butouden. The trailer is pretty hefty, featuring a glimpse of various features and modes, as well as highlights of the 20 playable characters. One notable information provided by the trailer is that the fighters have different characteristics to differentiate one from the other beyond visuals. For instance, Goku has increased speed and range, while Goten has exceptional defense against aerial attacks.

First Screenshots for Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butouden

A few days ago, the first news regarding a new 2D Dragon ball fighting game for the Nintendo 3DS were published all over the net.

What we do have on hand are a couple of screenshots that were posted all over the net, showing the game itself in action. You can check the screenies below:

Nintendo of Japan to Cease Production of Original 3DS XL Models

Nintendo of Japan has recently announced via their official website that the original 3DS XL, regardless of color and model, will soon be discontinued. The announcement is odd considering that a range of colors for the original 3DS will continue to be produced and sold.

The possible reason for the 3DS XL being discontinued is a push for the new Nintendo 3DS and 3DS LL, which has been released in Japan last October. The newer models a re required to use Amiibo figures in game, so it makes sense to push them over the older models.
