Even though the hottest console on the market right now is the Nintendo Switch, Dragon Ball Game Project Z is skipping Nintendo’s little console that could. The upcoming action-RPG is being developed by CyberConnect2 and will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Steam for PC launching at some point in 2019.
Bandai Namco announced the news with a brand new trailer for home consoles and PC where it makes it clear that it’s not coming to the Nintendo Switch. The game is also another retelling of the Dragon Ball Z story arc. Yes, for like the 1,000th time.

The game follows the story of Goku yet again. This time following his arc from when he rivaled Piccolo up to his fight with Raditz, his journey across Snake Road to King Kai, his showdown with Vegeta, and eventually his epic battle with Frieza.
It’s kind of disappointing that they’re going back over this story again. It would have been way cooler if they did an entire game based around the Tournament of Power, which was far more epic than anything in the standard Dragon Ball Z arc.
Anyway, we don’t actually see any in-game play, but we do get plenty of cinematic sequences, where see that CyberConnect 2 is relying on traditional cel-shading for the game. It’s nowhere near as dynamic or as eye-catching as the more per-pixel 4K cel-shading that Arc System Works used for Dragon Ball FighterZ, but hopefully the gameplay will compensate for the stale visuals.
Then again this all depends on if we get something closer to Asura’s Wrath rather than CyberConnect2’s lackluster Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm games.
We’ll have to wait to find out more about the game, but something tells me that it’s likely not going to match the quality of Dragon Ball FighterZ.
