So Namco Bandai just announced a new Dragon Ball Z game for Kinect.

You play the game in first person, it will have over 50 characters including a new one, QR code support so you can scan codes in to unlock stuff in the game and new anime footage not released in the US or Europe before. I made a longer post about it here and you can read the full press release here.

Guess this was kind of inevitable, huh? I'm not sure if making the game first person will make it better or worse. Anyone interested in this game at all or does it just sound like a bad kinect cash-in (I guess you could argue all Dragon Ball Z games are just cash-ins at this point anyway). Anyone think it has a chance of being decent? I'm interested in seeing it in action, but my expectations are pretty low. Kind of interested in finding out who the "new" character is I guess.

Excellent, I for one can't wait for the QL where Vinny plays as Goku and his kid plays as kid Gohan.

I have a feeling this may result in the best Vinny Dragon Ball Z Quick Look yet.
