Atari's slow collapse continues with the loss of the company's most lucrative franchise. No, not Ghostbusters -- it's Dragon Ball, which has produced approximately a billion video games so far. The franchise will now go back to Namco Bandai, the original Japanese publisher of the series. According...

Namco Bandai Europe just announced that it will rel...

This is the trailer for the upcoming video game adaptation of the Hollywood live action adaptation of the classic anime/manga series. The very existence of this game is ludicrous, but the trailer manages to go to a whole new level of ridiculousness with its cheesy narrator. According to the trailer,...

We salute you, PSP. Much like a brave (or fatally clumsy) soldier collapsing on a grenade before shrapnel pierces the entire squad's fleshy bits, Sony's portable platform has kept the latest licensed game all to itself. Based on the upcoming Dragonball: Evolution, which critics are optimistically ...

The game will be available in April, just in time for the movie's theatri...

According to the latest Shonen Jump in Japan, a game based on the upcoming Hollywood adaptation of the Dragonball movie will be hitting the PSP. It may be an exclusive, as no other platforms were announced. We're hoping it'll be just as totally awesome as Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game. Trail...

PS3 software topped the charts in Japan this week, thanks to the release of Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit. It's amazing to see that, years after the end of the series, the dedication to this popular manga/anime goes strong. Although this brawler is multiplatform, you wouldn't be able to tell from thi...

Completing the trifecta of designer, limited-edition DSes we've featured this week is this wonderful handheld customization from deviantART member SSJ4Maromaru. We really think we saved the best for last. If you're unfamiliar with the meme phrase scrawled on its lid, hit this goofy video up. SSJ4Ma...

The Dragonball universe and canon is one of the most well-known (though not loved) anime properties in the otaku mind-share, and developer NTL looks to be capitalizing on that with plans for an MMO. In beta testing since last summer, the game will be on 360 and PC and is expected to see relea...

Don't get us wrong, we used to like Dragonball Z. When we were, like, twelve. But with the announcement of yet another DBZ game coming to the Wii, we can't help but think of all the other deserving anime franchises that could use the gaming treatment. The import Naruto titles on the 'Cube were spe...

Take this! Take this! My playthrough of the upcoming Dragon Ball Z game didn't really have sound, and maybe that was a good thing. No matter how fun the game may end up being, the repetitive voiceovers in this new gameplay video will certainly irritate anyone. Watch the video, and tell me: do...

New York Comic Con had a great deal of games based on anime franchises. But, they were all on the DS. The one game that I had to play was the upcoming PSP Dragon Ball Z game. I got a chance to talk to some representatives from Atari and I had a blast. As you can see in the embedded video abov...

Atari loves releasing Dragon Ball Z games. Year after year, another fighter appears in the DBZ universe, and while they tend not to be awful, they're not all too memorable either. Shin Budokai: Another Road is the latest addition to the DBZ fighter genre, and if IGN's glowing preview is to be belie...
