Namco Bandai gets North American Dragon Ball Game Rights
Posted by LadyPSerenity in News Articles July 05, 2009 at 10:52:59 AM

NAMCO Bandai Games America has confirmed that they have licensed the exclusive North American rights to publish videogames for the Dragon Ball franchise from 2010 to 2014. While Atari currently holds the agreement with FUNimation for the Dragon Ball game rights, the agreement ends this year. FUNimation Entertainment has made attempts to terminate Atari's license in October of 2007, but Atari negotiated the continuation of the license in December of that year.

The games are based on Akira Toriyama's fighting action manga and Toei Animation's anime adapatation of that manga. NAMCO Bandai Games America negotiated with Toei and FUNimation for the new agreement. The new agreement not set to officially start until 2009, will be preceeded by the publisher releasing 3 Dragon Ball games for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and DS.

The games are:

Dragon Ball: Raging Blast for the Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 consoles,
Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo for the Nintendo Wii console
Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans for the Nintendo DS system
