Dragon Ball Sparking! Zero Has Been In Development For 5 Years

Outlet IGN recently interviewed Dragon Ball Sparking! Zero producer Jun Furutani to discuss the recently announced title. Several interesting comments are featured here, including how this game’s intentions differ from the other Dragon Ball fighting games.

FighterZ was made for eSports, Kakarot was for the story, and Xenoverse was for making an avatar in the game world. However, “The focus [in Dragon Ball Sparking! Zero] is to push the limits of how much a player can completely immerse themselves into the world and how intensely [they] can make that [happen].”

Additionally, Dragon Ball Sparking! Zero has been in development for five years, with the in-game environment being emphasized thanks to Unreal Engine 5.

Dragon Ball Sparking! Zero marks the long-awaited return of the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi series, announced at The Game Awards after many years.

It features meticulously recreated legendary characters and their iconic powers, engaging in monumental battles within vast, destructible arenas.
