Developer Spike Chunsoft and publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment announced at The Game Awards that their up and coming arena fighter, ‘DRAGON BALL: Sparking! ZERO’, will be coming to PC via Steam, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series consoles. A new entry to the Budokai Tenkaichi of yore, Sparking! Zero brings the classic arena fighting game series back for a new generation after 15 years of deep sleep. No release date has been confirmed.
DRAGON BALL: Sparking! ZERO brings the series forward to a new era by harnessing the power of Unreal Engine 5 and pushing the envelope for gameplay and features in an arena brawler. DRAGON BALL: Sparking! ZERO also brings the franchise back to the original Japanese naming convention, where the original DRAGON BALL Z: BUDOKAI TENKAICHI was titled DRAGON BALL Z: Sparking!
This is the DRAGON BALL fighting game players have been waiting for, bringing a new sequel for one of the most beloved game series based on the franchise to a new generation of players. It has been more than 15 years since DRAGON BALL Z: BUDKAI TENKAICHI pioneered arena brawlers, and DRAGON BALL: Sparking! ZERO continues the legacy while adding new genre-defining features made possible only with the latest game platforms to deliver one of the most immersive anime game experiences of all time.
