Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 4 Rumored To Target September 2023 Release
Bandai Namco’s Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 4 is rumored to be targeting a September, 2023 release window.
According to Reddit user Drillucidator, who claims to be a GameStop employee, the recently announced Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 4 is targeting a September, 2023 release for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and likely PC. Their source is an alleged Bandai Namco employee who was “shopping around” at their GameStop outlet.
The GameStop employee mentioned their excitement for Budokai Tenkaichi 4, to which the Bandai Namco employee said that he said he couldn’t share details on the game. However, he did share that the publisher is targeting a September, 2023 release window for the game. He also mentioned that Bandai Namco have a new line of action figures releasing along with the game.
As with all such rumors, we urge our readers to take this information with a grain of salt, especially since the alleged release window of September, 2023 is merely 6 months away.
Recently, Bandai Namco lifted the curtain on the fourth title in the Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi series, titled Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 4, during the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour 2022/2023 finals event. An official release window has yet to be announced, however.
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi is a series of fighting games developed by Spike based on the Dragon Ball manga series by Akira Toriyama. From 2005 to 2007, Namco Bandai Games published the series under the Bandai brand name in Japan and Europe and under the Atari name in North America and Australia. Atari’s involvement was effectively ended when its PAL distribution network was absorbed into Bandai Namco Partners, and since 2010, Bandai Namco has also handled publishing in North America for upcoming Dragon Ball Z games.
A third-person camera angle from “behind the back” is used in the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi games. Similar to Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors, which was released for the Super Famicom, special forms are treated as individual characters with unique stats, movesets, and fighting styles.
