PSA: Arc System Works’ Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden demo is out in US

It’s on 3DS eShop now

Bandai Namco announced a Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden demo for Europe recently, but come to find out, it’s actually available in North America too. All you have to do is search the 3DS eShop manually for “Dragon Ball Z,” and you’ll find it, clocking in at 700 blocks.

The publisher also passed along this secret code (in the gallery below), which unlocks Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Vegeta. Yes, I typed that correctly. You’ll find the option to fight CPU and local opponents in the demo, with playable renditions of Goku, Kid Gohan, Vegeta, and Majin Buu. Levels include King Kai’s Planet, Rocky Area, Urban Area, World Tournament, and Planet Namek.

Having played the demo for a bit, I really dig it. The action is smooth, even with the 3D effect on, and gameplay is a 3v3 affair, allowing you to switch out characters easily by way of the touch screen.
