Atari Expands Line-Up of Dragon Ball Z® Handheld Games    


Exciting Variety of Gameplay for DBZ® Fans with Shin Budokai™:   Another Road and Harukanaru Densetsu
   


NEW YORK, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Atari, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATARD) today   announced the development of two new Dragon Ball Z® titles for 2007   release, Dragon Ball Z® Shin Budokai™: Another Road for the PSP™   (PlayStation®Portable) system and Dragon Ball Z® Harukanaru Densetsu for   Nintendo DS™.    


Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai: Another Road is the sequel to Dragon Ball Z:   Shin Budokai, one of the best selling PSP® system games launched in 2006.   The game takes the intense Wi-Fi multiplayer battles and thrilling combative   gameplay made popular in last year's hit and adds an improved fighting   system with over 50 new fighting skills and ultimate attacks and the power   to play heroes and villains from the DBZ, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball   worlds.  In addition to these all-new features, Shin Budokai: Another Road   will send players into a completely new story arc following the future world   of Trunks on his adventures against rival Majin Buu. Developed by NAMCO   BANDAI Games Inc. / Dimps, Dragon Ball Z Shin Budokai: Another Road is   slated to release in March 2007 for the PSP® system.    


Dragon Ball Z Harukanaru Densetsu is an all new DBZ® experience unlike any   other for the Nintendo DS.  Harukanaru Densetsu combines strategic card   based gameplay and role playing to deliver a game that is easy to understand   but hard to master.  Players' progression is determined through their use of   the cards to evolve characters, strengthen moves and create new moves.   Developed by NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc., Dragon Ball Z Harukanaru Densetsu will   be available on Nintendo DS in Spring 2007.    


"Newcomers and faithful fans of DBZ will be thrilled with these two new   handheld games," said Emily Anadu, Product Manager, Atari, Inc. "Shin   Budokai: Another Road lets players take the DBZ universe over a Wi-Fi   network with an exciting new story that is sure to grab long-time fans while   Harukanaru Densetsu tackles a new form of RPG with card-playing -- an   interesting innovation for the DBZ series that we believe will attract   gamers who enjoy strategy based gameplay."    


Anadu continued, "Both games represent the innovation and evolution that   characterize the DBZ experience and maintain the Dragon Ball Z reputation as   one of the best anime and cartoon-based series of all time."    


Dragon Ball Z is the gold standard of anime-based video games, with more   than 26 different games and over 10 million units sold since May 2002.

Wow, that's about 400,000 sold per game. That's not bad. Decent games aspire for less. Some companies, cough* Atlus, don't even ship that many!
