Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is the latest release in the long running series of 2D Butoden games, though most of them have missed the US entirely. The US got lucky this time and has gotten Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden this week, but one feature that we knew was missing will be coming after all.
Online gaming has become more and more prominent in the current game landscape, with fighters being a big part of that. For those that have trouble getting friends together often enough, this is a great way to play against other live players.
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden seemed like an excellent candidate for online play, but with its release in Japan and now the US, that is completely missing. However, according to leaked V-Jump scan, which has been translated by ShonenGamez, the game will be getting just that in a future patch.
The scan also indicates that the game is planning a collaboration with the just recently announced Dragon Ball Heroes’ Super Saiyan 4 is coming. In that case, it is a Super Saiyan 4 Gohan, so could he be added as a character in the future? We’ll just have to wait and see.
This scan is obviously only talking about the Japanese version for now, but one would have to assume the Western version would also get these patched in, or at the last the online play. Regardless, you can buy Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden exclusively for 3DS now.
