Dragon Ball Z For Kinect is a Dragon Ball Z video game for the Xbox 360's Kinect. Published by Namco Bandai Games and developed by Spike ChunSoft. Dragon Ball Z For Kinect is a first-person fighting game similar to the arcade game Dragon Ball Z: V.R.V.S. and the Let's! TV Play games, with graphics similar to Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi.

Overview

DBKinect

The game has over 50 characters (including one character exclusive to the game: Super Saiyan Bardock), and over 100 moves to perform. There are over 20 special cards with QR codes that can be scanned via the Kinect for additional content (characters and power ups). Those QR cards are offered as preorder incentives, promotions, or in the press. Cardboard Super Saiyan Goku hair which can be worn has been included in each NTSC copy of the game, with the back of the hair printed with QR codes, whereas PAL copies received the QR codes on small cards.

Also, a special movie with a run-time just under 20 minutes is included in game: Dragon Ball: Episode of Bardock. It is the first time that this special movie is released in U.S. and Europe.

Gameplay

Piccolo punches Cell

During battles, the player retains control only over limited movement and dodging technique. Returned by spectacular camera movements in an anime style, the fighting system requires the player to carry their body with every movement and every shot so that the character executes them on the screen. It results in a true fusion of breathtaking cinematic and immerse gameplay.

Modes

Story Mode

The Story Mode allows the player to follow the Dragon Ball story from a first-person perspective for the first time on a console. It covers the main battles of the Saiyan Saga (including the battle against Great Ape Vegeta), Frieza Saga, Androids Saga, and Majin Buu Saga.

Score Attack

DBZFK9

The Score Attack challenges the player to overcome successive duels for the highest score possible. The player chooses the character he wants to fight the same opponents as in the Story Mode.
