Namco Bandai Games has announced the return of two of its Dragon Ball Z Budokai games. PlayStation 2 titles Dragon Ball Z Budokai and Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3 are being enhanced and re-mastered in HD, and will be released together as Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The collection is coming to America & Europe in Fall 2012.
Originally released in 2002 and 2004 respectively, both games deliver highly charged, unforgettable gameplay experiences, making Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection an essential purchase for new Dragon Ball Z fans as well as those who want to relive the furious battles from the original games. With its intense gameplay and thrilling fight action, Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3 went on to become the highest rated Dragon Ball Z title on Metacritic, a position it retains to this day.
With enhanced and re-mastered HD visuals, alongside full Trophy and Achievements support, Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection brings two legendary anime fighting titles to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for the first time in one package.

Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection will be powering its way into America and Europe this coming winter.
No details were given why Dragon Ball Z Budokai 2 was not included in this collection.
I can’t speak for all fans, but I’d rather have gotten a Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi HD Collection, which may yet be on the table if store reports are true.
