Someone start a petition, this looks beyond awful.

He doesn’t even go SSJ2 in-game.

It’s still tolerable compared to most DB games’ box art, but it could be much better.

I think it looks fine?

SSJ/SSJ2 Goku is overplayed on boxarts but going off the other thread I expected something worse.

They've already got the FGC convinced so they needed to go with a generic boxart to attract people who play Dragon Ball Z games.

Lame box art but what’s the big deal? In NA and European we always get a different box art

This would be better but it makes it look like 17 is its own character lol

Put 17 behind 18 and use Janemba on 17's previous spot and we have a way better boxart.

The box art in and of itself is okay.

But the fact that it doesn't emphasize the unique 3v3 structure makes it a pretty bad one for the game. It doesn't really tell me anything about it other than "yeah, this is another DBZ fighting game I guess", when it's so obvious Bamco want it to be so much more than that.

That's some shockingly ugly line art. They could've used assets from the game and it would've looked better than this lmao

This looks pretty bad, honestly. It's generic Goku fighting pose and nothing else, even the art doesn't look great in comparison to how the game looks. It says nothing about the game other than it's a DBZ game.

This is basically my main problem with it, nothing tells you what kind of game to expect, they should've taken advantage of the 3v3 aspect and the fact that it is an actual fighting game to come up with a much more representative boxart.

This is pretty bad. There have been much better Dragon Ball,Arc fighters, and Bandai Namco boxarts.

I don’t know why modern Dragon Ball games are stuck with such boring covers. Is a simple groups shot to much to ask for?





Not saying these are all amazing but I’d take them over just generic Goku action pose. At least for Budokai 3 the darkness kind of gave it a minimalistic feel.
