Finally, Dragon Ball Z fans can finally learn a little more about the new Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi game announced by Bandai Namco in March. Named “Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 4”, while the last game that Bandai Namco discontinued was Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, which was released in 2007, it seems that this new installment has finally given this fighting game series a comeback. Good name. Bandai Namco has filed a trademark called “Sparking! Zero,” and if the discovery of the trademark is an indication of what’s to come, we hope to hear about the new game soon.
The mark in question is in the Patent and Trademark Office database (via Gematsu). It was removed on September 26 by Bandai Namco, and as with most of the trademarks seen before it was revealed, it lacks any interesting details that could reveal more about the game.
Sparks! Mark Zero in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi
We don’t know much about this game based solely on this brand, but if you know the old fighting game Dragon Ball Z under the Budokai Tenkaichi brand, it’s not hard to understand how the two properties are connected. Budokai Tenkaichi is actually a Western name for a fighting series, and every game that follows these naming conventions is released as a new game, but in Japan, the series is called “Dragon Ball Z: Sparking!”. ” The first game in the series with this name after Dragon Ball Z: Sparking! Neo followed by Dragon Ball Z: Sparking! Meteor concludes the last of the three main games. With that in mind, it looks like the new fighting game will be called Dragon Ball Z: Sparking! Zero if this new sign is an indication of what’s to come. Although Japanese gamers are already familiar with the name “Sparking! “, accepting this in the West and adding “Zero” at the end can mean a kind of soft reset for the series, seeing how it happens. It has been a long time since the third game appeared. Of course, the name can be a Japanese name, and other games take the name convention from Budokai Tenkaichi when you see how Sparking! It’s not a registered trademark in the United States, so don’t expect the new game to take that name in the future.
Nothing about the new game has been announced since it was first revealed, so we don’t yet know what kind of Dragon Ball Z story and arcs it will unfold first. If the previous Dragon Ball Z games are any indication of what’s to come, the game’s longevity may allow it to eventually spoil almost everything Dragon Ball Z fans can expect him.
