This rumor stating that Goku will appear in the next Super Smash Bros installment has started floating around the internet since yesterday. It originated from the IGN boards from a user named 100 Year Old Gamer which in itself gives zero confirmation and make’s it most likely false. Nonetheless he stated that a certain Super Saiyan might appear in the next game although it hasn’t been decided yet, here’s a quote.
When asked if “a certain Super Saiyan” would join Smash Bros (since Namco is involved), he said it “hasn’t been decided yet, but there is a chance”.
Given that Namco Bandai is involved with the next Super Smash Bros does give this rumor a slight chance of being true, however it is very unlikely. Thoughts?
Last year we reported that a Shonen Jump themed park was in the process of being built. It would include Dragon Ball Z, One Piece and Naruto themes. Bandai has now revealed several attractions involving this indoor theme park. Here’s a few of the Dragon Ball attractions.
“Let’s Unleash It! Kamehameha!!”
The player stands in front of an interactive screen and defeats enemies alongside Goku with the Kamehameha attack. The attraction costs 800 yen (US$8).
“Let’s Get It! Dragon Ball!!”
The player is given a Dragon Radar to help them search for the Dragon Balls hidden in the area. Those who collect all seven can call upon the dragon god.
A while back Namco Bandai posted on their Dragon Ball video games Facebook page (Europe only) that if they reach 100,000 fans they will announce something new. Well it as long reached the 100k goal and they have yet to announce “their plan to conquer the world” as they put it. Today they updated their Facebook page with this photo and message.
“Thank you all! You’re the best and if we’re here it’s because you. Getting more than 100 000 fans is an incredible milestone, you guys truly are a powerful force. The plan continues, stick around to be a part of it!”
A Spanish/Japanese publication known as MangAnime has released what they say is a confirmation of new Dragon Ball Z episodes due to the success of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.
Update: Confirmed fake. As expected this was nothing but speculation. The magazine that reported this is actually created by fans which originated from South America. That’s not to say there won’t be new Dragon Ball episodes in the future, we even have Dragon Ball Kai (Buu Saga) to look forward to.
Note that this is not 100% confirmed and is currently just a rumor. Thoughts?
A new trailer for Galaxy Mission 8 for the Dragon Ball Heroes arcade game has been released. It features scenes and fight sequences from this new mission including the new characters from Battle of Gods. Along with that the official site listed a lot of new cards for the players, we have provided the ones featuring Dragon Ball Z Battle of Gods below.
New Dragon Ball Z books known as the Chōzenshū 4 (Super Encyclopedia #4) and Chōgashū (Super Art Collection) have been released in Japan today. They contain a lot of old material from the original Dazenshuu but also includes new drawings and material from the DBZ series such as Battle of Gods artwork. Check out a few scans below which include a new shot of Goku as a Super Saiyan God. Follow this link for more scans.
Here’s the official trailer for Galaxy Mission 8 from the on going Japanese arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes. It features Birus and Goku as a Super Saiyan God from the new Dragon Ball Z movie, Battle of Gods.
We recently posted the raw full version of this new crossover anime special featuring characters from Dragon Ball Z, One Piece and Toriko along with a portion of it with English subs. I felt that a full English subtitled version deserved it’s own entry. Watch it here!
The official Dragon Ball Heroes website has been updated lately to preview Galaxy Mission 8 for their on going Dragon Ball Z arcade game. The teaser images show off villains from the Dragon Ball z movies including Birus from Battle of Gods! Check out some pictures below. The new Galaxy Mission releases May 16th.
Robot Underdog has released their 4th (4 of 7) photo for their upcoming live action Dragon Ball Z movie project. With this new photo we get another glimpse of Adult Gohan (which is Future aka Mirai Gohan, another hint at the movie’s storyline) along with another character seen in the background (perhaps Vegeta?). We have been covering this fan project just as we did with Dragon Ball Z : Saiyan Saga. I advise everyone to follow them via their official website for all the latest updates. Once all seven photos are released they will announce the exact project they have planned.
In a recent interview with FUNimation’s Sean Schemmel (Goku), it was confirmed that they are indeed currently working on the continuation of Dragon Ball Z Kai. Kyle Hebert (Adult Gohan) has also confirmed this via his Facebook account. Here’s the portion of the interview with Sean Schemmel confirming FUNimation’s involvement in Dragon Ball Kai : Buu Saga.
Tell us about some of the projects you have been involved in. What is your favourite project to date?
“Well of course, the Dragonball series has a special place for me in my heart, but there are other projects that were more “fun” for a number of reasons. Kappa Mikey comes to mind, which was a parody about anime. Recording both the audiobooks “Shit My Dad Says” and “I Suck At Girls” was a total blast to work on because those books are hilarious. But most recently getting to play Batman/Bruce Wayne in the iPad game Batman The Dark Knight Rises by Gameloft was really really thrilling. I consider it a major career highlight. I’m currently working Yugioh Zexal and I am about to finish the Buu saga for DBZ Kai.”
And here’s the statement from Kyle Hebert (FUNimation’s Adult Gohan).
Just got the blessing to announce I will be returning as Gohan for the Buu Saga of Dragonball Z Kai. No release or broadcast dates for now. For those who overlooked Kai because of the edits on TV, remember its UNCUT on DVD/blu ray. Pretty psyched to return to the role that began my VO career. Recording in a few weeks.
Robot UnderDog has released the third photo for their upcoming live action Dragon Ball Z project. It is a picture of (assuming) Goku performing a ki blast or perhaps the Kamehameha. They also explain a few things about their project, check out a quote from their blog below the new picture.
This photo is #3 out of 7 that we will be releasing. We appreciate all the support and feedback that you all have given so far and we look forward to continuing our journey as we lead up to the announcement of our live-action project. We will be announcing our plans on the 7th photo. We cannot tell you too much at this time but we’d like to clear up a few things. Many of you have been asking if we are doing a trailer or trailer series and the answer is no. Our live action project will be an actual project – not a teaser or series.
Additionally – the 7 photos released are not related to the story line that we will be doing for our live-action project. More details will be released soon on that. Until then – we hope you’ve enjoyed the photos thus far and we appreciate all your support.
A team known as Robot Underdog have announced a new project of theirs in which they will attempt to make their own approach to live action Dragon Ball Z. It is currently uncertain on what plans they exactly have, but they did release two photos showing off a live action version of Adult Gohan and Goku. New photos will continue to release until they announce this live action DBZ project. We will keep you all updated on their progress, but until then here are two really nice looking pictures.
Here’s a quote from their photographer via his website.
DBZ Future Destroyed
RobotUnderDog and I take on DBZ!
We soon will be announcing our upcoming Dragon Ball Z Project! My goal is to make a darker aproach than what you’ve seen online thusfar, while staying true what was makes DBZ so amazing.
DBZ has never been done right – RobotUnderdog steps up to the challenge to deliver. Before launching the project – 7 photos will be released, each with one of the 7 Dragon Balls uniquely placed within the photo. Follow @robotunderdog on twitter for all the latest updates and photos. I will make sure I will do DBZ justice.
