It’s time to take it to the next level! Sony has announced the demo release date for Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z in North America – December 17, 2013 for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. What time will it be available? Sony doesn’t specify what time the PlayStation Network will update with the demo, but in Anime Games Online’s experience it’s generally between noon and 11:59 PM.
The Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z demo will include the first 4 missions from the final game’s single player campaign as well as online normal battle with the option for 8 player co-op or a battle mode with 2 players in teams of 4. Data and trophies will be transferable from the demo to the full game.
No word on when European fans or Xbox 360 owners in North America will get a chance to enjoy the demo, but it will likely be the same week, if not the same day.
As announced last week, those with Japanese PlayStation Network or Japanese Xbox Live accounts will also be able to download the demo on December 17.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is the latest game in the legendary DBZ series. It will host team-based combat with up to 8 players, including 4 on the same team. There will be up to 70 playable characters, three of which are DLC. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is scheduled for release on on January 23, 2014, Europe on January 24, 2014, and North America on January 28, 2014.
