Players will be able to explore huge levels, defeat boss enemies, collect Dragon Balls, and journey through the DBZ universe, including places never fully unveiled in the animated series.
"Atari's Dragon Ball Z games have succeeded because of their ability to authentically capture the distinct characteristics and exciting action of the series," said Matt Collins, Director of Brand Marketing for Atari. "We are thrilled to offer fans, especially those who may not have seen the very beginning of DBZ, a new spin on the franchise by allowing players to journey virtually anywhere in the DBZ universe, from the Saiyan Saga to the Cell Games. With its intense action and expansive environments, Dragon Ball Z: Sagas gives fans the DBZ adventure they've been waiting for."
Featuring the greatest Z-Warriors, including Goku, Vegeta, Trunks, Piccolo and Gohan, Dragon Ball Z: Sagas spans six different story arcs that pit players against such infamous DBZ boss enemies as Frieza, Cell, Nappa, Captain Ginyu, and Raditz. With fully destructible environments, the ability to upgrade characters' superhero skills and a wide variety of exciting missions, Dragon Ball Z: Sagas offers fans the most authentic interactive DBZ experience yet.
"This is an exciting time for Dragon Ball Z," said Gen Fukunaga, president of FUNimation Productions, Ltd. "The launch of DBZ Sagas gives fans their first-ever DBZ action-adventure game and Atari has again done a great job enhancing the interactive DBZ universe."
In addition to Atari's release of DBZ Sagas, FUNimation is launching the DBZ Ultimate Uncut Special Editions in April, which gives fans their first chance to see the beginning of Dragon Ball Z uncut and Cartoon Network is reintroducing DBZ in May.
Rated 'T' for Teen, Dragon Ball Z: Sagas retails for a suggested price of $49.99 on PlayStation 2 and Xbox, and $39.99 on Nintendo GameCube.
