Dragonball returns

Dragonball fans, get ready. Later this year, like every year, a new Dragonball game will be released. This year's lucky candidate is DBZ: Burst Limit. Unlike the Tenkaichi games of the last three years, Burst Limit will return to the tried and true formula of the first three Budokai games. For those of you not familiar with the games, that's a really good thing. Check out the trailer below:

In a related story, it looks like the live action movie will also finally be happening, though it's not quite what everyone had expected. The movie in the works focuses on the end of Dragonball, not Dragonball Z. It'll most likely take place during the final fight between Goku and King Piccolo, leading up to the fight between Goku and Piccolo Jr. The cast is as follows:

  • Justin Chatwin as Goku
  • James Marsters as Piccolo
  • Jamie Chun as Chi-Chi
  • Emmy Rossum as Bulma
  • Chow Yun-Fat as Master Roshi
  • Joon Park as Yamcha
  • Eriko Tamura as Mai (Where's Pilaf and Shu?)
  • Texas Battle (awesome name) as... his character is unrevealed. Krillin maybe?
  • Luis Arrieta as Teto, an original character
  • Randall Duk Kim as Grandpa Gohan
  • Ernie Hudson as a random kid who aids Goku
The film is directed by James Wong (The X-Files), produced by Stephen Chow (Kung-Fu Hustle) and James Wong, and written by James Wong and Ben Ramsey. The movie is wrapping up filming in Mexico City and Montreal, Canada and will be released worldwide on August 15, 2008.
