Namco Bandai announces Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection
Developer Namco Bandai has announced they will be releasing Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and an estimated launch widow of late 2012 to early 2013. The collection will contain the original Budokai and Budokai 3, but oddly not Budokai 2. There is a trailer for this game you can watch here:
So what do you g1's think? Are you going to pick up this game when it comes out? Do you think they should have put in Budokai 2? Leave a comment down below and tell me.
Despite being based off an anime, I've actually been hearing good things about this fighting game series. This new one looks a little bit interesting.
so much hyyyyyyppppppeeee
Some faith in the DBZ Fighting games have been restored!
Budokai HD Collection w/o Budokai 2?....What kind of collection is this!?
I love Budokai 3 & all, but the removal of combo-based capsules (blue capsules) & Utlimate Ki techniques turned into one hit moves, instead of the awesome pre-combo - to -> special ignition attack into Ultimate special move from the earlier Budokai 1 & 2 (this mechanic made it awesome for Mind-games in matches), was a little bit of a turn-off.
Anyhow, I wish they would include the PSP versions in HD remastered format for the PS3/X360...Those games had amazing fighting mechanics!!!! Imo, better than all other Budokais, even more than Budokai 3, (sans the Tenkaichi series & gorgeous cinematics) & completely underrated at that too.
*Prepares Flame Shield, for incoming blast!...Bracing for impact!*
Having missed my copies of the Budokai series, I'm actually excited to replay them again! What perplexes me is the absence of Budokai 2!
Didn't like Budokai 3?
it's not a collection if u leaving out the one in the middle, also doesn't every game pretty much have the same shit as the previous installment plus some more?
Unnecessary, graphics don't look improved at all (probably only applicable to Budokai b/c they went cell-shaded), and Budokai 3 is the same as Budokai 1 except a little more (each game you had to play from Saiyan saga through Cell, but in 3 you get Buu, GT, and some movie storyline). BIG DBZ fan, but I just don't anticipate this doing well. And the trailer itself? Just the opening to Budokai 3.... nothing original. Bleh.
I was excited at first but then I saw the Graphics that look completely unchanged so I'm going to pass.
No offense, but totally unneeded. I still own Budokai 3, and have owned the other titles. Budokai 3 is by far the best DBZ game ever made, and while it is perhaps cool for people who missed out on this, I don't think it's needed.
What a shame. Liked Budokai 2 the most and appreciated even more after having played 3. Might be b/c i just don't like GT because Toriyama wasn't much involved in it except for "art director"
This HD remake should actually contain all three of them where as the DMC remake should have left the second one out. I think Capcom and Namco somehow got the wrong letters.
Budokai 3 best DBZ game ever.
I've been a fan of this series since i was a kid and played all of them and the first one for a great game and the 3 was AMAZING and the second is just the 3rd but with a weird over world for the story mode and less characters so I can see why its not there when they can have a way better version there, but it would be great to have all three games from my fighting game childhood remastered.
BUDOKAI 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *mouth foams up as i scream like a little girl and fall down out cold on the ground* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58WHM_keAgo My loveing youtube video i did of all the awesome super moments.
Budokai 2 is my favorite, but it really doesn't matter because I already own the game twice, same with Budokai, both for PS2 and GC. Plus, I think the Gamecube controller the best one anyways.
budokai 3 is the best thing ever since sliced bread, also why did this happen just after I bought the ps2 version? :(
I've only ever played Budokai 1
Not even Dragon Ball Z 2: Super Battle?
Looking forward too this. Me and my friends played B3 the other day and it is a lot of fun. The graphics still looks good on a ps2 with component cabels. Cell shading FTW. Gonna be great o play it in HD with my fightstick :P
It's sad.. The greatest action anime of all time... and NO ONE can make a decent fighting game based on it...
