Namco Bandai Games Japan has revealed King Kai, one of Goku’s trusted teachers and mentors, will be playable in a Dragon Ball game for the first time ever! That’s right, the goofy, but wise blue master will be in Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butouden for the Nintendo DS! He’s appeared as part of the story or as a boss in Dragon Ball Z: Super Saiya Densetsu (SNES), Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku (GBA), Dragon Ball Z: Buu’s Fury (GBA), but has never been playable until now!
As you can see below, he throws wood, drives you over with a car, and blasts you with magic telephone voodoo! Seems like a blue Hercule, don’t you think?
Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butouden is the latest fighter in the Dragon Ball line-up of games. It will cover all of the sagas released or planned for release in Dragon Ball Kai, including the Saiyan Saga, Frieza Saga, Cell Saga, and Buu Saga. The game is slated for release in Japan on February 3rd, 2011 for the Nintendo DS. No North American release date has been announced yet.
