The fans must keep buying them, because there are two new Dragon Ball Z games on the way from Namco Bandai. DBZ Raging Blast 2
, the sequel to last year's fighting game, brings more destructable environments and the new Raging Soul system, which sounds something like SSB Brawl's final smashes if you ask me. Raging Blast 2 is coming to the 360 and PS3.
The PSP is getting DBZ Tenkaichi Tag Team
, the first DBZ game to feature 2 vs. 2 combat. The story mode Dragon Walker takes you through the entire DBZ saga, which covers a ton of ground and characters. The roster reflects this too--over 70 characters from the series are playable and customizable. This is a pretty ambitious fighting game, especially for the PSP.
Both of these titles will arrive this fall.
