2d budokai

#1 Posted by Riotisonfire (123 posts) -

Anyone else wishing for a new 2d fighting game style Budokai. Budokai 3 was unbelievably amazing. Dimps needs to get back in and make one. Anyone know of possibly a japanese version perhaps?

I want one too.

I've never actually played any of the 2D DBZ fighting games, but I did like the 3D ones. Since I've been playing more fighting games recently (really just SSFIV so far), I'd like to at least give one 2D DBZ fighting game a shot.

Yes, Dimps needs to come back and make a Budokai 4--none of this "Tenkaichi" shit.

Budokai 3 is without a doubt the best DBZ game ever made. I still play it to this day. Raging Blast and the Tenkaichi series suck in my opinion.

Even Ryan thought so back in the day:

@RE_Player92: Seeing Ryan look and act so damn positive back then is just crazy to me now.

You mean Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2?
That is a Tenkaichi styled game though and not regular ass budokai.

Exactly. Get that shit outta my face!!!

From what I heard it Burst Limit doesn't go past the Cell saga.  The Buu saga may not have been the best but it did introduce us to fusions and Kid Buu.

That game is great for a DBZ fighting game. Burst Limit was pretty good too.

Budokai 3 was an amazing game.  I remember remembering most of the moves for my favourite characters.  I just wish Cooler was in that game...  He was probably my second favourite DB character, right after Vegeta

I would be hype for a Budokai 3 remake, but sadly that will never happen.

Well, Dimps did make another PS2 game, Infinite World, which added some more characters and stuff on top of the Budokai framework. I haven't played it, but I've heard mixed things (as to whether its better than Budokai 3 or not). And then they got sucked into the Street Fighter IV machine, which I'm assuming is the only reason we haven't seen a Burst Limit 2.
 
However, from what I've heard, Spike (the development team behind the Budokai Tenkaichi and Raging Blast games) lost their license to the franchise, making Ultimate Tenkaichi their last game. So, the next game could be another awesome 2D fighter, provided that the diminishing returns on these games doesn't discourage Namco Bandai from making more... And that Dimps stops making Street Fighter IV expansions.

Infinite World was more like Budokai 2 in terms of how the battles played, I think they even took out the beam collisions. It was also way harder
 The side effect of it being way harder was that I got extremely good at that game. My brother and my friend who both have been playing fighting games competitively by going to tournaments and stuff would be utterly destroyed when they fought against me.

Ah,the Budokai games,I still play them.But,seriously,I do like the 2D style,it was pretty good.This stuff was reintroduced in Burst Limit,Infinite World,Shin Budokai.I would like for them to go back to that stuff,but I don't think I want them to drop the 3D stuff.It's pretty good.So,I don't know.What I really liked about this game(Ultimate Tenkaichi)is that they mixed 2D with 3D,but in a different way than some would want.
