European fans of Dragon Ball Z have to wait no more as Artdinks first try at the Dragon Ball series, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z releases across the continent for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PS Vita (as a digital only title). Battle of Z is the first game in the series to allow 8 players at once to brawl it out over 19 different maps (including night and day variations). The game has a large roster with over 70 characters (including DLC and transformations), 60 missions to complete based on the original story and what if scenarios, a bunch of cards to collect to increase your stats and a large focus on online co-op and battle royale gameplay.
Those in America will have to wait until the 28th of January to get their hands on the new team based brawler while the Australian release date which was originally set as the 23rd of January seems to have been quietly pushed back by retailers to January 31st. Check back for our full review of the game which will be coming in the near future. You can view our impressions of the Battle of Z demo here.
