Namco has you covered with Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo
. The Wii exclusive 2D platformer recently went gold and will be in stores by October 20th, at the budget price of $30. This side-scrolling actioner focuses on the lesser-told adventures of young Goku as he searches for the seven dragon balls (surprise surprise) in an attempt to obtain them before the Red Ribbon Army does. I've never been a big fan of the Dragon Ball series outside of a brief interest in middle school, but this game should help die-hard fans get the taste of the Dragon Ball Evolution movie out of their collective mouths.
