Months after it was leaked by a Korean classification, Dragon Ball Z Kinect has been officially confirmed by Namco Bandai for a 2012 release.
Developed by Spike Chunsoft, players will get to control over 50 characters from the popular Japanese series and perform DBZ inspired moves. Presumably that means lots of screaming.
The game will include new anime footage, never before seen outside of Japan, and somehow integrate QR codes to unlock characters and power-ups.
"There's going to be no better feeling in the world for fans of the Dragon Ball Z series than standing in front of their screens and unleashing their own fists and raging blasts upon enemies with this game," said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing at Namco Bandai America. "The Kinect sensor has truly enabled the development team to finally realize the dreams of millions of fans of both the classic games and the timeless original anime. This game will truly represent the next generation of interactive entertainment in the Dragon Ball Z universe."
Featuring both "Story" and "Score Attack" modes, players will fight through the Dragon Ball Z storyline in first person for the first time.
