Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 takes the series' acrobatic and intense 3D combination of flying and fighting to a whole new level of nail-biting excitement, with over 100 playable characters, 15 vast and vibrant 3D destructible environments, and nine different game modes, including single and multiplayer battles allowing players to do battle with friends. In addition, the European game boasts six extra new characters and a new battle arena not present in the previously released US version.

The innovative Nunchuk controller is perfectly suited to Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 and the game's frenetic fighting action, allowing gamers to get physical, mimicking the characters' moves to pull off devastating attacks and combos.

In addition to the unprecedented number of characters, wide selection of massive 3D destructible environments and abundance of game modes, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 features in-game transformations, which players can trigger in real-time, making battles even more dramatic and exciting than ever before. Using the Nunchuk, players will be able to mimic signature moves as they are performed in the Dragon Ball Z animated series, such as Goku's Kamehameha, moving both hands to execute this devastating energy attack.

Yes! After a two year hiatus DBZ returns to Nintendo!

DBZ on Wii! Finally! Since Budokai 2, I thought Atari and Bandai Had stopped making DBZ games for Nintendo. Now I'll be able to play DBZ in the comfort of Wii!

hmm I liked Budokai 3 better than all of them.

Tenkaichi was great and this will rock if it utilises the remote so you can slap Vegeta in the direction you wave it. Or fire ki blasts with the sound effects coming out of the controller. What if it was taken first person and you could have scouter benefits and lock on with the remote? Possibilities are endless.

Love Dragon Ball Z fighting games. I wish so much that this would be 4 players.

JD said:

They should make a Wii exclusive DBZ fighting game. Then that could have four players. That'd be cool.

I didn't really like the camera angles or the hard to execute move system in Tenkaichi, but if they fixed these thigs then I'll brobably play it.

Dragon Ball Z has been out of style for years now. LET IT DIE, MAN!

Hey Noah of Nintendo Bunker, shut up.

Who cares what's in style? As long as somebody likes the shows or the games then it doesn't matter.

LordRandom said:

This is looking to be the most complete DBZ fighter ever; Transformations, free flight, cinematic attacks, and the next one that comes onto Wii will be even greater, rest assured.

How in heavens name are you able to play dragon ball z on a motion sensored controller?

Some of the guys in the game look creepy, I'm having nightmares tonight.

I bet you get to use the Wiimote to do fusion and other whatnot. Just wave it in the fusion dance way, but if you get it wrong... CHUUUB-BIE!

Avatar

Kirby4Wii said:

It's obvious isn't it? You put the Wiimote and nunchuck controller next to you and shove them forward to do the Kamehameha move, just like many DBZ fans have probably fantasized doing in the past.

Avatar

ganon said:

Cool I hope you get to be Majin Buu.

Avatar

LordRandom said:

Another thing you could do: Control Yamcha's spirit ball or even redirect the Kamehameha like Goku does in ep 3 I think. I wonder how you become Great Ape (Oozaru)with saiyan characters such as Turles, Nappa etc.

This title alone will make me buy a Wii.

ss4luigi12 said:

This game is gonna be awesome, this will be the closest I've ever gotten to shooting a real kamehameha wave (haha). It would be cool if you can fight with more than 2 people at a time, you would be able to actually perform a fusion dance. I'm getting it the day it comes out. Oh and I would also like to add that Noah of nintendo bunker sucks, he sucks bigtime.

Avatar

LordRandom. said:

Ss4luigi12, can you actually DO the fusion dance perfectly to the minutest detail? More to the point, do you know anyone else that can do it? And in case you're wondering, yes I can do it. And yes, my friends think I'm mad because I can do it with a straight face.

Avatar

ganondorfrules said:

The game would be awesome if you could have 4 players in it. Rest assured the show may be out of date or style or whatever you guys call it, but the games still rock like Budokai 2. I hope they don't do that thing in the story mode with the map thingy, that was lame. And on Gamecube the characters would speak japanese but you could read the english. It really annoyed me because I wanna hear them in english. But yeh it will be an awesome game, remember it's not about the show it's about the game and how you choose to play it.

In my opinion cel-shaded graphics are cool. It looks like a cartoon to me.

Vegeta said:

Aw, come on! I know you're all looking forward to going against me as a computer player while you're using Kakarot and beating the crap outta me on easy mode. Well I'm not buying into it. If you do that then I'll personally visit you and make a misery of your life. If not, I'll just get Chris Sabat to do it for me. (CS: STFU!). Oh, forget it! Well, I hope you at least enjoy the other aspects of the game as well. I would appreciate it if someone played as me to beat the crap outta Kakarot at some point. But who fights the computer in any mode other than story or Tenka'ichi Budokai mode anyway? A sadact, that's who! So for those of you that play games well, enjoy it while you can *flies away*. (Goku: Ignore him, he just doesn't like to act happy).

I hate to agree with Noah, but DBZ is out. Naruto is the new thing. Kage Bon Nunjustu!

Vegeta's cool, I mostly play as him. And hey Vegeta weren't you supposed to go super sayin 5 in the gt series?

Vegeta said:

It's not my fault Bulma brags so much. Sometimes I just can't understand Earthling women.

kiki itachi said:

Does anyone understand women, no I don't think so.

And I thought you said you watch DBGT.

I do, I saw every episode I think.

(Flies into the room) You're not the real Vegeta! (Pushes him out a window) (Slaps kiki itachi for thinking he was real). My work here is done (Flies away).

random hero said:

Kiki itachi, no they don't. I'm just hoping they make a wii exclusive one that utilises the wii-mote's motion sensing capabilities - imagine having to do the action of a kamehameha to execute the move! Or thrusting opposite hands forward and back to launch ki blasts! That would be awesome.

Avatar

Lord Random said:

Hey, who here honestly believes that it's the real Vegeta on here? I don't, but I go along with it because whoever's doing it is just role playing. There's nothing wrong with that, is there? It's just that some people (someone cough cooler cough than you and noah of nintendo bunker) get all stressy about it. Chill, guys.

Well it's about time someone stood up for us instead of whine at us.

Hey Vegeta it's in reverse to me, I beat the crap outta Goku with you.

I agree with Noah (even though he's a wii-hating moger).

Hey said:

kiraMeki, you didn't say it right. It's Kage Bunshin no Jutsu. Vegeta, Goku, go combine to make Super Vegerot.

Vegeta + Goku said:

It's either Vegito or Gogeta.

Cel-shaded is cool.

Lord Random said:

It's quite sad that the DragonBall story has finished. I wish a new series would be released. Oh well, all we can get by with now is the video games, which aren't always brilliant. This one's looking good though and I look forward to it.

Uforia77 said:

DBZ Tenkaichi was the first DBZ game that actually felt more like DBZ than Street Fighter. This will be a sweet fighting game!

Avatar

Lord Random said:

Well I've got to say how disappointed I am with the transformations in that they're all the same. I was really looking forward to a cinematic transformation into Great Ape/Oozaru with Saiyan characters. Saiyans with scouters (Nappa, Bardock etc) would use an artificial moon, regular Vegeta would get Bulma to shoot him with blutz waves. Kid Goku and Gohan would only be able to do it against Saiyan characters who use the artificial moon. Neat system eh?

Avatar

ganondorfrules said:

The game looks awesome, I can't wait for it. I never played the first Tenkaichi but I've played the 1st and 2nd budokai and I own both. But this one looks crazy as in awesome.

Avatar

ganondorfrules said:

Yea but apparently after DBGT finished they announced that they were making DBGT the lost episodes. But this time Goku was an adult at the end of them and they were planning on bringing in the new form super saiyan 5 into it. But they made it so Vegeta was the first person to reach it because I personally got sick of Goku winning nearly everything. Other than that this game looks cool.

Avatar

ganondorfrules said:

Yea I use Vegeta most of the time because he is my best character along with Krillin and Tien because they have really good moves. Like the valiant fist that Krillin uses, volleyball fist that Tien has and the big bang attack of Vegeta's. Also the final flash and Vegito is the form of Vegeta and Goku when they use the potara earrings. Gogeta is the form when SS4 Goku and SS4 Vegeta fuse together in the final episode against the last dragon.

Avatar

Lord Random said:

Come on, surely I'm not the only person disappointed by the transformations! They're all exactly the same in terms of animation. On the earlier games, some of the transformations had cutscenes to go with them e.g Super Buu absorbing a random character in Budokai 2. Shame really. At least the fusion cutscenes are still there. But I was really looking forward to seeing Vegeta throw the artificial moon in the air and then grow 20 ft and get all hairy and then BAM! Vegeta Oozaru. Oh well, one can only hope for such things in a later game.

Avatar

ganondorfrules said:

I don't care much about cutscenes, though they would be good to see. But I'm happy the wii is bringing a fighting game of DBZ status, as long as the game's good I can overlook any character flaw no matter the graphics or whatever.

This should be the best DBZ yet. I'm just curious on how the controller will be used.

Vegeta + Goku DOES equal Super Vegrot. Read the comics and see.

Kuririn said:

Hey Ganondorfrules I'm angry with you! My name is Kuririn, not Krillin! And anyone who says my name is Krillin must die!

Kuririn said:

Sorry about that outburst everyone. I just get ticked off easily because I don't have any fans. It makes me so sad. *Sniff Sniff*. It's not that I'm crazy or anything. Oh, It's time for my pills. What? No, no, no this isn't because I'm crazy, no, no, no! *Hysterical Laughter* Hahaha! *Sleeping injection gets put in me* Uh, uh. Zzzzzzzzzz. JD: Hey! There's Krillin again!

I'm not against Dragonball games but damn its time to change. Dragon Ball broke my anime spirit because they keep on making cheesy games like Super Dragon Ball (the one that got out not long ago). Man it sucked really bad, but I think Tenkaichi is ok.

wii-mote dude said:

I keep acting like the characters when I play tenkaichi. So this is going to be perfect for me! Although I hope that they don't put in those ape-things. I never liked them.

DarkVic said:

I've always liked the past DBZ games, especially Budokia 1, 2 and 3. I think with Wii technology this game will be great!

Captain Jamesman said:

It looks the same as the first Tenkaichi.

Must..have..wii said:

There's way too many of these games.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

It looks like there will be characters that were never in the show! That's just messed up. And what's with that fat yellow alien thing? That's an insultation! But I think I'll get this game because I like Tenkaichi the best.

Avatar

ganondorfrules said:

That's because he and the others we have never seen before were in movies.

Avatar

Captain Jamesman said:

Really? Well that solves it. I never watch the DBZ movies.

Pazzy said:

I say Tien and Android 17 are the best characters.

Brawlsucks said:

After buying Tenkaichi 2 for playstation, I realised that this game will be the best Tenkaichi game out. I can't imagine how good it will be using Wii.

Captain Jamesman said:

The PS2 version's already out?

I liked the DBZ games but the movies are way better but still I think this game takes all.

Harock said:

Yer but PS2 sucks.

Avatar

z-guy said:

Pros: More combos, more characters, more modes and new powerup graphics. Cons: Roshi, Tao, Yajirobe now can't stay in the air. They peddle their feet then fall (annoying), whoever thought of this idea should get seriously slapped around, these characters are useless. The sky used to light up when a super would hit your opponent in Tenkaichi 1 (which was awesome), now all you see is a puff of smoke. Tenkaichi 1 and 2 kind of even out but 2 has the edge with more characters and combos.

Avatar

OG Bugaboo said:

This game is directly transfered over from the PS2 version. No graphics difference, just the controls. After renting it for the PS2, I'm pretty confident that this game will take over many hours of my life! 120+ characters and forms? Yes, please! The feel of it is like a combination between budokai 3 and tenkaichi 1. There's a lot of new stuff here. It may take a while to learn everything with even one character.

Ezekyle said:

Honestly, I thought dbgt sucked. There was never any melee fighting just a bunch of people flying around and talking, talking some more and shooting lots of energy blasts at each other. Don't get me wrong I loved dbt and dragonball, but dbgt was so boring I couldn't watch it.

I like dbz better than dbgt.

I have this game on the Wii. It's totally awesome. Playing as the Saiyan Apes is great!

Hey Vegeta, I might get this game and I'll pick you to beat Goku, seriously I will (no offense Goku, you're still okay).

I getting this game for Christmas hopefully, and wow they have 120 characters that is awesome! This game is a must for DBZ fans.

That yellow alien thing just happens to be the coolest character in the game. JANEMBA!

I can't believe they have the characters from the movie DBZ: Wrath Of the Dragon. Did anyone see that movie anyway? I did. It was good but not awesome.

Don't pick either of them! Pick me, Freiza! Use me to destroy both of the Super Sayain's! Hahaha.

I'd use vegeta and goku over freiza any day.
