More Characters Announced for DRAGON BALL FighterZ: Gotenks, Kid Buu, and Adult Gohan!

Gotenks, Kid Buu, and Adult Gohan have now joined the roster for the upcoming Dragon Ball Fighter Z!

Gotenks is the result of Trunks and Goten’s successful use of the Fusion Dance method to create one fused character of greater power and skill. Gotenks is the first Fusion Dance character to be seen in Dragon Ball. He sports a blue and yellow Metamoran vest, a piece of clothing which all Fusion Dance characters wear. Gotenks is ready to take on all challengers in DRAGON BALL FighterZ.
Kid Buu, unpredictable in his thoughts and unremorseful for his actions, will certainly be a fierce fighter to contend with in DRAGON BALL FighterZ. Possessing numerous powerful attacks, Kid Buu can be one of the most dangerous characters to come across during battle or a powerful ally on your team.
Gohan (Adult) is the first hybrid character to appear in the Dragon Ball series, combining Earthling and Saiyan traits in one character. Gohan doesn’t possess the passion that Goku has for fighting, instead choosing to only engage in battle to defend Earth and the lives of his loved ones.

Which character will be your fighter? Let us know in the comments!

Taiko Drum Master: Drum Session gets a revamped playlist!

So many fun things are coming to Taiko Drum Master: Drum Session! Here’s a sneak peak at the Taiko Ranked Matches, Additional Performances, Guest Performances, and the updated song list!

Ranked Matches

Taiko Ranked Match” is a mode in which players will try their skills against other players all around the country. Since you’re matched with the performance data of other players based on your skill, your rank will rise as you win and aim for higher ranks.

By first performing the 5th rank certification battle, you will be certified for the beginning rank. You will then be matched with opponents based on your own skill, and perform against the performance data of other players.

You will win by surpassing your opponent’s score in a performance. By winning, you’ll earn a “Kachiboshi Medal” (a medal indicating your victory), and you will rank up by building up a collection of said medals. Additionally, by playing Taiko Ranked Matches, you’ll receive “Match Points.” The rankings of Match Points can also be checked.

It should be noted that in order to play Taiko Ranked Matches, an Internet connection and Sony Entertainment Network account are required. However, a PlayStation Plus subscription is not required.

Additional Performances

Best Replay Performance is a score attack mode that matches you against your personal best score. Your best score data is played back on the bottom lane, and since you can find out at which points you made a mistake, you can discover at which spots you need improvement. Practice and practice to increase your score.
Training Performance is a training mode that lets you speed up, rewind, change speed, and so on as you like in order to train at spots in which you might need improvement. Train and train in order to gradually take on higher difficulty songs.
