I was checking the australian ratings and saw that this game was rated recently.

For reference, this is an Arc System Works 2D fighter for the 3DS that's coming out Thursday in Japan. The playable roster is only 25 characters and includes the new version of Goku from the latest movie. It also has an assist system which contains characters from both the original Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z.
Here's the most recent trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5W68VhEGa28

I'm honestly kinda surprised.

The last Dragon Ball handheld game we got was awhile ago, right?

Considering the recent success of Xenoverse, I see it coming to Canada as well.

Big ol suck it to everyone that forgets Canada is a part of NA. >(

Man, the roster is garbage. :(

I really want another Dragon Ball fighting game with Dragon Ball characters in it like Roshi or General Blue. This game doesn't even have Yamcha or Tien.

I was worried this wasn't going to come out after Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butōden on the DS not being localised. I would imagine this would come out around the same time as the Resurrection of F movie.

Really excited to get my hands on this.

Glad to see it's coming over. I was a bit worried Bandai Namco wouldn't bother to bring it over because it's a 3DS release and we never got Ultimate Butoden.

Saves me having to import too.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

This is the game that will finally make me buy a 3DS, although I was a little disappointed when I found out that this game won't have a online mode... :(

Great news. Thought this wouldn't get localized at all.

If it does come to the US, I believe it'd be the first Butouden game to release over here since Ultimate Battle 22.

For some reason, I was thinking this game had a much bigger roster, and one filled with a lot of OG Dragon Ball characters. Did such a handheld game exist at some point? I feel like it did.

I'm thinking about doing that, but I'm going to keep it on the off chance that it does come over, but as a digital only title.
I feel like I can never tell whats coming over physical or digital with Namco, but they've been surprising me lately with physical releases of JoJo's ASB, Jump Start Vs, and Godzilla, but then again those are console games so who knows.

There isn't really any reason to expect that this isn't coming. Ultimate Butouden probably would have been released if it hadn't come out so close to the 3DS' launch. I think it was in the same month.

Honestly, I wish we could get a translated 3DS port of that instead, sort of like how NA got Inazuma Eleven.

Bandai Namco has been extremely weak in terms of 3DS support though. I am still hoping it'll get announced

Unless this is eShop exclusive, I doubt it's coming out in August.

Any impressions? I heard no online and mediocre combat, which kind of puts me off.
The full game is not out in Japan yet, only the demo.

Famitsu gave it a surprisingly tepid score of 29/40 (7/7/7/8), but who knows if that really means anything.
