Konami is giving Dragon Ball Z fans plenty to be happy about this fall with two new games: Raging Blast
on 360 and PS3 and Attack of the Saiyans
on DS. Raging Blast is a fighting game that includes a massive roster of 70 DBZ characters in high definition goodness. Attack of the Saiyans is an adventure game where you use a three party system to travel through the DBZ storyline. I'm surprised they're still retreading the same anime storylines so many years later but with no new content on the anime or manga fronts the fans are probably happy to relive their favorite moments.
