Eight minutes of Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden gameplay

Arc System Works-developed 3DS fighter out next month in Japan.

Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden

Bandai Namco has released new footage and details about the battle system of its upcoming Arc System Works-developed 3DS fighter Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden.

On the lower screen, the characters you select are each shown in frames. By touching their frame, you can switch between characters. Z-Assist characters, or support characters, each have their own frames. Touching them will bring them in for support. Each character has their own level of “Dragon Power,” and teams must be assembled within a limited amount of said Dragon Power cost. Teams are limited to five characters, including Z-Assists. Though it’s possible to form a team of three playable characters, or a team of one playable and four Z-Assist characters. During battles, you’ll go from land to air combat and can pull off fast and exhilarating combo attacks, including both “Ultimate” and “Final Ultimate” combos.

Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is due out for 3DS on June 11 in Japan.

Watch the new footage below. View some new screenshots at the gallery.
