Cheer on your friends by blasting a Kamehameha into the air or delivering a classic fist bump.
Dragon Ball Z, the Japanese anime series, has received a number of popular video game adaptations over the years. That said, fans of the ultra-popular television show have been eagerly awaiting the day they can deliver a Kamehameha in VR using motion controls.
Well, wait no more! According to a tweet from the Dragon Ball Games Battle Hour account, Dragon Ball Z is finally coming to VR, allowing you to play as the legendary character Gohan during the infamous Cell saga.
But before you get too excited, there is a bit of a twist to this story. This exclusive VR game, which the team describes as an “immersive dragon ball experience,” is just for attendees of the Dragon Ball Games Battle Hour event that’s being held in Las Vegas on March 5th and 6th, and, unfortunately, it’s not clear if this will be available as a commercial game.
At this point, there isn’t a lot of information on the game, but the two official photos released look pretty promising. According to the Dragon Ball Games Battle Hour website, registration for the “Special VR Game” is open now to the general public. Or you can register as a spectator to root for your friends.
Along with this exclusive Dragon Ball Z VR game, attendees will also be able to create their own custom Profile Card which you can pick from eight different avatars. Customize your look, choose an original username, and insert a cool background. You’ll also be able to collect Profile Cards of other fans and even cards of the game’s producers.
As your online avatar, you can cheer for other players by giving a fist pump, delivering applause, raising a glow stick, or performing a fist energy attack known as the Kamehameha, a fight move that is widely used as a finishing attack throughout the Dragon Bal series.
Not only are organizers of Dragon Ball Games Battle Hour promising you an exclusive Dragon Ball Z VR game, but they are also looking to deliver the ultimate Dragon Ball experience with three killer competitions: Dragon Ball Fighter Z, Dragon Ball Super Card Game, and Dragon Ball Legends.
As of right now, registration is closed for Dragon Ball Legends. However, registration is open for the other two sections. You can learn more about the exclusive Dragon Ball Z VR game over on the Dragon Ball Games Battle Hour website, and even register to check it out!
