This is for all Dragon Ball fans in the West who will finally breathe a sigh of relief. According to reports, Namco Bandai has revealed the US release date for Dragon Ball Z 'Extreme Butoden' that will now arrive with a boatload of bonuses, provided you pre-order the game from Amazon.
The company has announced the game's US release date via its official Twitter account, apart from revealing the fact that the game will indeed arrive with a plethora of pre-order bonuses for fans to dive into.
While there are several pre-order bonuses for the game that will be available when you pre-order it via Amazon, the bonus fans will surely talk about the most is an exclusive downloadable virtual console release of the 1993 Super Famicom game Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden 2.
Super Butoden 2 has never been made available in the US before. It was originally released in Japan when fans were going gaga over the Cell Saga.
"Super Butoden 2 had land-to-air combat and heavily featured Teen Gohan because he (spoiler alert) killed Cell at the end of the Cell Saga. It's super cool that those of us in America finally get an official means of playing it," a Twinfinite report states.
However, apart from the Super Butoden 2 content, there are also some bonus support characters added to the mix. Among those included are Kid Goku (from Dragon Ball), Garlic Jr, Super Vegito, Metal Cooler, Kid Gohan, and Naked Baby Goku.
As of now, Dragon Ball Z 'Extreme Butoden' is being developed by Arc System Works and is slated to release on 20 October in America for the Nintendo 3DS.
