Bandai Namco and V Jump Tease Upcoming Dragon Ball Z Action RPG

A new Dragon Ball Z action RPG is in the works. Here's what we know.

It looks like fans of Dragon Ball Z have plenty to look forward to this year in the gaming arena. Not only can they expect updates to Dragon Ball Fighter Z, which include the introduction of the Warrior from Universe 11, but there is also a new Dragon Ball Z action RPG in the works.

The new project, currently titled Dragon Ball Game Project Z Action RPG, was teased first on the V Jump Twitter account and later shared by Bandai Namco.

The Microsoft translation of V Jump's tweet is a bit shaky, but it seems to promise a large universe. Bandai Namco's tweet promises that the game will focus on the "world of Dragon Ball Z." 

As fans of the manga and anime can confirm, that's a pretty vast universe not just covering a landscape that always seems to have more land to explore every time you turn around, but also a large array of different worlds and dimensions. Depending on the scope of the game, players may find themselves exploring everything from Earth to Namek to the various dimensions of the afterlife.

Of course, we really can't tell exactly how this will all shake out based on two little tweets, and we will have to wait until the developers are ready to share more information with us on the game. But it will be interesting to see if the upcoming action RPG consists of new adventures or is a retelling of the stories fans of the series are already so familiar with.

The only thing that does seem confirmed — in the V Jump tweet anyway is that Goku will be in it.
