Namco was in a fighting game announcement mood today, as Soul Calibur V isn’t the only fighting game to make news headlines. Namco Bandai followed up their Soul Calibur V news with the announcement of a brand new Dragon Ball Z game for the Xbox 360 and PS3, using the interim title Dragon Ball Game Project Age 2011.

The game is being developed by Spike with a heck of a lot of changes being made to the core mechanics of the game, while at the same time the aim is to keep many of the accessible fighting features the same. Some of the new features includes even bigger energy blasts that do massive amounts of damage to the surrounding environments, allowing players to create massive craters with ki-fireballs.

But destruction and bigger kamehamehas aren’t the only thing being offered up in the latest DBZ title…
An enhanced story mode drops players into the rich Dragon Ball Z universe, filled with beloved characters and powerful enemies. An accessible battle system allows gamers of all ages will be able to hold their own in fast-paced battles, while still retaining tactical depth for hardcore fans.

The game is scheduled to appear at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con in July, where gamers will be able to test-run the game for the very first time. As usual, be sure to check out the Official Namco Bandai Website for further updates on this newest DBZ project.
