Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 4 rumored to arrive sooner than anticipated


There will be some exciting news soon for fans of the Dragon Ball Z video game series, so get ready to get excited. According to recent sources, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 4, which is much awaited, may be out sooner than anticipated.

Through their Twitter (or X) account, controversial leaker and content producer Geekdom101 disclosed the news, saying that “Tenkaichi 4 is coming sooner than people realize.” The leaker narrowed down the game’s release window to early 2024, however they did not provide the precise release date. They also hinted that they would provide “more news” this week.

Additionally, recent social media tweets from one of the voice actors for the game imply that English voice work for the game is already in progress, implying that the game may be at an advanced stage of development. However, until we receive an official confirmation, it’s crucial to treat these speculations with a grain of salt.

As longtime fans of the series will remember, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 was the last mainline entry to be released more than ten years ago. Since then, there have been incredible developments in gaming mechanics, graphics, and overall gaming experiences. In light of this, the idea of a new Budokai Tenkaichi game that is tailored for contemporary gaming systems is nothing short of thrilling.

Developer Bandai Namco made the announcement for Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 4 during the Dragon Ball Games Battle Hour 2023 event earlier this year. The true show-stopper, as seen in the teaser trailer that went along with the news, was the sight of Goku in his Super Saiyan Blue form—a transformation seen in the most recent Dragon Ball Super anime series.

In addition to energizing fans, this also suggested the possible inclusion of Dragon Ball Super characters and storylines. Fans of Dragon Ball may also anticipate the recognizable third-person over-the-shoulder arena fighting clashes. Furthermore, Geekdom101 has hinted that the game’s roster will be larger than that of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, which came out in 2016.

Originally available only on the PlayStation, the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi franchise debuted in 2005 and has now spread to other platforms, such as the Nintendo Wii. It’s unclear if Budokai Tenkaichi 4 will just be available on PlayStation, although a number of reports indicate that it will be available on systems from the current generation.

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 4 will feature returning playable characters, forms and stages.
