Dragon Ball Sparking Zero: New Interview

The team is open to criticism and consists of enthusiasts, with Jun Furutani himself being a big fan.

The local split-screen mode will ultimately not be available, not due to the developers, but because of issues related to Sony and Microsoft, making split-screen adaptation complicated. They are trying to find a solution, but for now, there won't be split-screen.

This wouldn't be the first time such a situation has occurred; the situation may still evolve, with the team being aware of the demand. Developers mentioned that adapting games to the Xbox Series S is particularly challenging.

Characters from Dragon Ball GT will be included, possibly in the base roster or as DLC. The game will also include fusions (Gogeta, Vegito, Gotenks).

There is no precise release date at the moment. The team is working on the game and wants to avoid rushing to release an incomplete game. They are taking their time, considering a release in late 2024 or 2025.

A complete story mode will be present, following and evolving from Tenkaichi 3.

Graphics have been improved compared to the trailers already seen. The graphics team, even better, has addressed criticisms regarding hair, for example.

Outfits can deteriorate during fights, and fights are designed to be longer than the old ones.

The game's cover art is already ready and follows the style of the old drawings, potentially those of Nakatsuru.

Several other trailers will be released in the coming months, each showcasing new features.

Characters from Dragon Ball movies will be included, possibly up to Gohan Beast.

Special effort is being put into backgrounds for a better immersion, as the human eye is more receptive to immersion through backgrounds.

The team is very attentive to the community on Twitter and through emails to improve the game with feedback. Ryo Mito himself has asked to gather feedback from around the world. Constructive feedback is particularly appreciated.

    Nice, I wasn't sure if the Sparking Meteor match and commentary right before the new trailer was just for advertising.

      My guess is that the team got overhauled somewhere during covid and the new producer (who hasn't done anything of note as far as we know) wants to make his mark with this game and is also a diehard fan of Dragon Ball.

      It’s actually totally because of Sony. Microsoft loves shit like this. We already went through this song and dance when they did the same thing with Fortnite and Minecraft a couple years ago.

              if the problem is series S they should honestly just release split screen on PS5 and pc and force xbox's hand and let them make split screen a series X only feature similar to the baldurs gate situation

                Get real, Toriyama is a shadow of his former self, his art is much worse now and unlike Dragon Quest, he doesn't even try when it comes to Dragon Ball.

The only thing we have from him recently i could use as an argument is some ilustrations for Super Hero and some of the corrections he used to make for Toyotaro

                That's always the case with covers; they've done this with western comics for decades. There's dozens of covers where superman is being a total dickhead, so people pick it up to figure how that happened and it's irrelevant to the actual comic.

      It has the same problem Kakarot does where they give Goku the same model over and over. They're also trying to emulate FighterZ who heavily edits their models and relies on perspective shots to make their characters look as good as they do.

      Safe Bet is anyone who didn't fight Goku and any Z movie villain not named Cooler/Broly, but some names i'm thinking are gone:
      King Vegeta, Kid Chi-Chi, Cyborg Tao, Cui, Great ape forms for anyone but Vegeta/Baby, Fasha, Nail, Evil Buu, Buu (Piccolo)
      Low Chance of Hirudegarn, Turles, Janemba making the base game, they all have reasonable popularity, either as characters or for their fights.

    Good, first thing on the list is getting every character from the last game not already in the base roster back in this game first. I don't give a frick what Toei or Bamco wants to push, they know damn well the prestige this series had back in the day and I won't let them half-ass it (easier said than done).

      Lol as soon as the 164 roster got revealed and people realized some characters weren't going to make the cut they switched up and now characters like King Cold and Appule suddenly don't matter.

      The low standards this fanbase has would make your head spin.

        I'm aware, that relevancy shit is hurting rosters. No one cared about canon or, we just liked having all those guys from the anime and movies together fighting each other and forming teams, some with a theme and a bunch of mix-match shit for fun.

        Unique movesets don't mean shit either, everyone knew the deal and still enjoyed themselves.

        >Toei
        still hilarious how they lost the rights to the games and anime
        [...]
        Appule and Freeza Soldier really don't matter and never did. Unfortunately, most of the cuts will be characters that matter like Pilaf Machine and Babidi. It's not like this makes or breaks the game though, especially if they still get in as DLC.

        >Appule and Freeza Soldier really don't matter and never did.
        And yet they were still added and even got merchandise. No one gave a frick about relevancy except for you modern day homosexuals who need everything to be canon or true to the source material at the cost of a fun game or just fun discussion in general. Raditz is suddenly now irrelevant, never mind when it comes to following the same tired ass story over and over again, guess who's usually right there at the beginning, and I'm not even a Raditz fan.

            Isn't this the argument that people tend to use? Now that's a no-go? I thought this was 'content' that was being removed. Isn't more 'content' a good thing? This is just a game to frick around and have fun with, isn't that what people cry about nowadays, people not having fun and enjoying things? Tenkaichi is enjoying things personified as a game.

        It's supposed to be a sequel to BT3 but they're actively taking characters from the game out and making you pay for them later.

        And it's likely they aren't even replacing them with lesser known characters from Super, like Ganos or Katopesla. Those guys would be lucky to even be DLC. You won't be seeing characters that aren't already in Xenoverse.

          There's a lot more aspects that make BT3 what it is than just the roster, and based on this interview + the Battle Hour panel, they're taking it all into account. That matters way more.
          And now that I think about it, they soft confirmed Devilman too, so that's nice.

            The roster, and the fact that small-time characters like Cui and Appule were able to make it in the game were one of its most admirable features.

            It's been almost 20 years and Dragon Ball games still skimp and sandbag. The two characters in pic related are probably never making it out of throwaway Dokkan and DBH units.

        Frieza soldier won't be excluded. Why? Because you need fodder in the Namek, Bardock, Resurrection F sagas for story mode and you can fit 10-15 different characters as costumes for one slot only. He's too convenient to be cut. No, they'll trim fat in OG, movies and GT. Forget about General Blue, Arale, Salza, Garlic Jr, Nuova and Eis, etc.
