One Piece: Grand Pirate Colosseum and DBZ: Extreme Butoden Go Head-To-Head In Crossover Update

Because it was actually released outside of Japan, many people living in the West would have, at least, seen the Nintendo 3DS exclusive Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden. It’s a fighting game developed by Arc System Works that is very much reminiscent of older Dragon Ball Z handheld titles. Well something you may not be entirely aware of is the existence of another Arc System Works fighting game based on another Shonen Jump staple of equal popularity; One Piece. This game, which is so far unreleased even in Japan, is titled One Piece: Grand Pirate Colosseum and features a similar gameplay design to that of Extreme Butoden. This game is also an exclusive for the Nintendo 3DS. Bandai Namco Entertainment Japan have recently revealed that, sometime in November, Arc System Works is set to release a free update for both games that will allow them to interact in huge ways.

For those unaware, Extreme Butoden is a 3DS installment in the DBZ franchise. Though handheld games have excelled in leaps and bounds over the past few years, they still lag behind their less portable companions. This particular Z combat simulator takes a side on, 2D perspective, a la your traditional fighting games. Though far from a revolutionary decision, it is a sound one, with the style fitting well onto the 3DS screens. In addition to allowing combat to remain manageably simple, this viewpoint allows the character sprites ample space to shine, and shine they do. …
