Independent Coders Create Dragon Ball Z Fighting Game with MUGEN Engine

A group of independent coders are creating an authentic 2D Dragon Ball fighting game that just might erase the mediocre streak of recent 3D releases. The group, who have dubbed themselves Z2, released the demo of Hyper Dragon Ball Z two days ago.

The current demo has 11 stages and five characters: Goku, Super Saiyan Goku, Vegeta, Freeza, Mr. Satan, and Saibamen. Majin Vegeta, Gohan, and Freeza are scheduled to release in the near future. And if the character selection screen alludes to additional downloads, expect to see Broly, Trunks, Cooler, Buu, and many more familiar faces.

If you like what you see, you can download the demo here and visit their Facebook for more information. Most importantly, leave some feedback on Z2’s social media and at the comments below to spread the word. Although the game is not officially associated with the Dragon Ball license, it sure seems like it’s bringing back the old glory of games like Dragon Ball Z: Butoden.
