Dragon Ball Z fans rejoice! Everyone else ... um ... be indifferent! There is now a Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit demo on Xbox Live Marketplace. The demo features two different battles and absolutely no tutorial. We've plowed through it a few times now, and we feel confident in saying that it will you will get much more pleasure out of the demo if you: A) enjoy the show and, B) have any idea what you're doing. Those in column A might not care too much about column B though. We'll put together a video later today (because we're masochists ... and we kinda maybe sorta used to watch the show ... in high school ... religiously).
To say that the anime series Dragon Ball Z has remarkably long legs is a bit of an understatement. Considering the series was officially ended over ten years ago and they're still making games based on it ... well, words fail us. This was back when SEGA still had a console in the race. Hell, the N64 and wasn't even available by the time the series was over, and the original Playstation had only been available for a month in Japan. The point is, you see, Dragon Ball Z is old. It is, however, apparently still popular enough to create a 360 game based on it. Entitled Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit, it looks to expand on the fighting formula set by the Budokai series. It uses cel-shaded graphics and it looks pretty damned good. At times, the trailer is nearly indistinguishable from the original series. If you're a Dragon Ball fan, you'll probably want to keep your eye on it.
