M.o.o.t = Manofontitle from Anime Games Online
Greg = Namco Bandai Games representitive
M.o.o.t.: Alright, SaiyanIsland, this is Manofonetitle, I’m here with Greg Anderson, he’s one of the PR’s for Namco’s booth right now. We got Dragonball Raging Blast 2 on the booth ready for everyone to play. We only have a few characters playable right now but we’re going to try and find out what exactly is going on with the game. Nice to meet you Greg.
Greg: Nice to meet you.
M.o.o.t.: Alright so what can you tell us about this game? What’s it going to have that wasn’t going to be in the first one?
Greg: Alright, so one of the biggest things we’ve done is we’ve made some nice graphical improvements so we’ve got more polished graphics added to the gameplay. As you saw earlier from what the demo gave you, it was really nice. Very smooth, like it’s the anime. We’ve also added 20 more characters from the series, we’ve got Dabura, we’ve got Super Jamemba there, we’ve got Turles, we’ve also got 70 other characters, I can’t talk about any of those, but I can say that six of those characters have never been in any other Dragonball game ever.
And we’re talking like, across the span of Dragonball, from all the way from Super Nintendo, and they’ve never been in any game. And that’s something we’re excited about.
M.o.o.t.: Alright, sounds cool. So what sagas, what characters from each saga will be in?
Greg: We have all the way from Origins, all the way up to GT, we’ve got extra characters from the movies, if you’d notice we have Jamemba and Turles and such.
M.o.o.t.: What’s new to the story or main mode of the game that isn’t part of VS. mode or anything like that?
Greg: We haven’t really finalized all the details on the main mode, I can’t go into a whole lot of details. I would expect the sagas to be an element, but like I said, I can’t go too into it.
M.o.o.t.: Alright, well as far as VS. mode goes, are there going to be any new modes with that are there going to be tag modes, tournament modes, etc…
Greg: We’re still early in development, so I can’t say what modes are all going to be in, but there will be online VS. mode and regular VS. Anything else right now would be all on speculation.
M.o.o.t.: Alright, also, this is going to be going on Xbox and the Playstation, will any versions be available for Wii?
Greg: Not at this moment, but it will be on the 360 and the PS3 and it will be available this fall, there is no specific date yet, but sometime this fall, probably around October.
M.o.o.t.: Alright, well there you have it, that’s Dragonball Raging Blast 2, set to come out the 4th Quarter of this year. Thank you very much for your time.
