Bandai Namco Entertainment America, publisher of many video games based on anime properties such as Dragon Ball and One Piece, have announced the newest video game in the Dragon Ball lineage, tentatively titled Dragon Ball Game - Project Z. After several games that diverted from the original Dragon Ball story, such as the Xenoverse titles and FighterZ, this upcoming action RPG goes back to the original story of Goku, the main character of the series. The game is being developed by CyberConnect2, a development studio responsible for developing such games series as Naruto: Ultimate Ninja and .hack.
"Combining the fabled story of Dragon Ball Z with a proven video game development studio is a surefire way to create an awesome Dragon Ball adventure," said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. "We can’t wait to unveil the official name for the game and share more gameplay details with players!"
Dragon Ball Game - Project Z is scheduled for a 2019 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam.
