Dragon Ball Z Budokai 2 missing in HD Collection

When Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection was announced, Namco Bandai Games said the enhanced and re-mastered HD versions included in the set would only be DBZ Budokai 1 & 3. Leaving many fans, yours truely included, to wonder: “Why is Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection missing Budokai 2?

At Comic-Con 2012, during a Gamespot live stage demo, right after the game was confirmed that exact question was asked. And here’s the answer they got from Namco Bandai’s senior global brand manager Jason Ends.

  • To quote: “Well, the overall Budokai series is one of the best. So, I mean, the fans love it. Even from critical acclaim it’s one of the most popular [DBZ game series]. But looking at it — down and dirty — what the fans really loved and cherished, sure you find fans that love all three of them, but [Budokai] 1 and 3 really stuck out, so we sort of chose those as the ones to kind of put in this HD Collection.

    Watch the Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection stage demo interview here that includes lots of HD gameplay footage:

    While Namco Bandai was quick to confirm achievements and trophies were added to the two games, nothing has been said about adding online multiplayer (that’s a really bad sign, in case you were wondering).

    Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection will be available on Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3 in America & Europe sometime in Winter 2012.

    Will you still get Dragon Ball Z Budokai HD Collection without Budokai 2?
