Heading back to the early days of the Dragon Ball story, players will control Kid Goku as he sets out on fantastic adventures with his friends. The title faithfully reproduces the uniqueness and special humour of the early Dragon Ball series, while adding an original blend of action and adventure to the mix. With the original Japanese music and voiceover included for maximum authenticity, Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo offers fans a dazzling new experience with the characters and universe they know and love.

The visuals in Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo take the series to a new level by faithfully reproducing on-screen the original drawings of legendary Dragon Ball artist Akira Toriyama down to the finest pen strokes. Thanks to the high-quality, state-of-the-art graphics, fans will be able to immerse themselves in the Dragon Ball universe like never before.

Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo faithfully adapts the original storyline of the epic Dragon Ball saga with its unique comical charm and epic action adventure overtones. Taking place during the Red Ribbon encounters, players will assist Kid Goku as he journeys through his path of personal evolution battling beasts, bandits and martial arts masters. Kid Goku will meet and befriend life long comrades and overcome formidable evil miscreants, including Red Ribbon Army, Emperor Pilaf, and the venerable King Piccolo.

With a simple move of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, Goku can fire off intricate combos, initiate classic moves, and execute his signature Kamehameha ultimate attack with ease. Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo also incorporates pseudo RPG elements which enable Goku to earn money to purchase power-up items throughout the game. Featuring in-game collectables, a host of unlockable characters and modes as well as state of the art Wii, Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo will provide a thoroughly engaging and accurate portrayal of Kid Goku's early formidable martial arts years.

Game modes include Story mode which follows Kid Goku from the Red Ribbon Saga to the King Piccolo Saga with the ability to replay previously completed stages, and the unlockable VS mode where players can take different unlocked characters into battle.

With in-game collectables, a host of unlockables, and more fun, fights and adventure than ever before all delivered in dazzling 3D, Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo is the definitive Dragon Ball videogame experience coming to Wii this autumn 2009.
