Bandai Namco have announced a brand new Dragon Ball game called Dragon Ball Project Z. The game will be an action RPG title, and more news will be available during the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals taking place on January 26.
During the last Dragon Ball livestream where Bandai Namco were supposed to deliver some big news on Dragon Ball FighterZ and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, they only introduced a new Dragon Ball card game called Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission.
No real news was announced for either Dragon Ball FighterZ or the Xenoverse franchise. Well, unless you count the upcoming Photo Mode for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, in which case there's that, but we can't really describe that update as revolutionary.
At the end of the livestream though, Bandai Namco did state that we would be getting some news that "all Dragon Ball fans will love and enjoy", hinting at a possible brand new Dragon Ball IP, or a sequel to one of their existing DBZ games which are, in all honesty, nothing short of brilliant.
The news on whatever they've decided to come out with were to be delivered at the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals, which will take place on January 26. We did not like that fact one bit because announcing an announcement was not what we were hoping to see when we tuned in to watch the livestream, so you can understand our disappointment.
However, Bandai Namco seem to have heard the displeasure of their numerous fans as they have just now teased a brand new Dragon Ball game on their official Facebook and Twitter. The game is called Dragon Ball Project Z.
It is simply described as an action RPG game, and Bandai Namco reiterated that more info about the game will be available at the DBFZ World Tour Finals, where they will apparently announce even more news, most of which will be related strictly to their Dragon Ball FighterZ title.
In the comments section of their tweet, fans were quick to ask as to why on Earth Bandai Namco did not announce the new game during their livestream, to which they simply replied "we would have loved to but we could not."
Nevertheless, we have to admit that the fire is very much back. Bandai Namco have managed to raise our expectations and stir up some hype once more. We will be keeping a close eye on the World Tour finals where we will learn much more about the upcoming game. As soon as we know more, we'll be more than happy to let you know.
