Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection Arrives This Winter
Namco Bandai has announced that their wildly popular Dragon Ball Z Budokai games will be receiving the HD facelift this Winter, as Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection is due for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The visually remastered titles will also include such enhancements such as achievement and trophy support, although there is curiously no word on whether or not this collection will include multiplayer support (although this really should be a no-brainer at this point). You can view the trailer for the announced collection below:
Now, DBZ fans will be let down that Kenji Yamamoto’s score for the games have seemingly been replaced with new music, which is a real shame considering they were a large part of the games’ charm. It is also very important to note that this collection is omitting Dragon Ball Z Budokai 2 for whatever reason – while it wasn’t as universally loved as the others in the series, it would still be nice to have it in this collection.
On another note, Namco Bandai has also announced that the upcoming Dragon Ball Z For Kinect (due out on October 9 for Xbox 360) will include two exclusives: the ability to play as Super Saiya-jin Bardock, as well as the “Episode of Bardock” anime special, which has been exclusive to Japan up to this point. Yep, the sole inclusion of that anime special will have die-hard DBZ fans purchasing this game, which honestly looks to be rather mediocre at this time – that’s marketing 101, folks.
