"Having sold more than eight million units combined since May 2002, the Dragon Ball Z brand has proven popular in the interactive entertainment sector," said Matt Collins, Director of Global Brand Management, Atari. "With such an enthusiastic fan base, it is important for Atari to continually offer Dragon Ball Z games that authentically recreate the series, and we are confident that Dragon Ball Z Budokai: Tenkaichi will be the best DBZ® game ever."
The game has already met critical success. In its review of the game, IGN.com said, "Bandai and Atari have consistently shown that they're dedicated to making their annual line of Dragon Ball Z games better than the titles that have come before them. Year after year, the team has carefully listened to fans and critics alike and addressed concerns and complaints to make a much more playable product. This year continues that trend with Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi, the fourth straight fighter to follow Goku and friends in their search for the mythical Dragon Balls."
Developed by Spike, Dragon Ball Z Budokai: Tenkaichi is the only 3D Dragon Ball Z game to combine fighting and flying in wide open, destructible environments. With the ability to battle in the air or underwater, players have the unprecedented power and freedom to experience the intensity of Dragon Ball Z in an all new way. Offering more than 50 playable characters, multiple gameplay modes and a combination of melee and energy attacks, DBZ Budokai: Tenkaichi promises to be one of most exhilarating Dragon Ball Z games yet.
Rated 'T' for Teen, Dragon Ball Z Budokai: Tenkaichi for the PlayStation® 2 is available for a suggested retail price of $49.99.
