DRAGON BALL Z FOR KINECT™ to feature exclusive playable character and European anime episode
July 5, 2012 - In a blizzard of unbeatable Bardock brilliance, NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe today announced that Dragon Ball Z For Kinect™ will feature a double dose of thrilling exclusive content. The game will include the “Episode of Bardock”, an episode of the anime that has never previously been available in Europe. Dragon Ball Z For Kinect will also feature Bardock Super Saiyan as a playable character for the first time ever in the history of Dragon Ball video games.

Coming to Xbox 360® on October 5th, Dragon Ball Z For Kinect features all the classic action and intensity of the Dragon Ball Z universe, but with the unprecedented sense of immersion that only Kinect can deliver. With their very own fists, players will be able to unleash over 100 moves on their enemies, including the legendary Kamehameha, as they battle their way to victory in this ultimate evolution of the unstoppable franchise.

Developed by Spike Chunsoft Co. Ltd, Dragon Ball Z For Kinect is loaded with epic battles, famous attacks, and over 50 iconic characters authentically recreated from the original manga series. Dragon Ball Z For Kinect lets players unleash the full might of their inner Super Saiyan with no controller in the way.

Making full use of the Kinect sensor, Dragon Ball Z For Kinect will also support QR code functionality, allowing fans to hold up and scan special QR codes to unlock characters and power-ups in the game.

With ‘Story Mode’ and ‘Score Attack’ modes to choose from, players will experience the legendary story, battles and events of the Dragon Ball universe from a first-person perspective for the first time ever. The game’s dramatic fights use anime-style camerawork, with success depending on the player accurately recreating their character’s moves and attacks from key moments in the anime. The combination of CG cut scenes and unique controls lets players experience giant boss battles like never before, while the ‘Score Attack’ mode pits opponents against each other in ferocious 1-on-1 battles to decide the ultimate victor.

Dragon Ball Z for Kinect will blast its way into Europe on October 5th, 2012.
