Do you fancy becoming the ultimate Super Saiyan? Alternatively, do you fancy putting your back out and doing yourself a serious injury? Whichever camp you may fall into, Namco Bandai has the game for you. Last week we were finally able to bring confirmation of the much-rumoured http://www.trueachievements.com/Dragon-Ball-Z-for-Kinec....htm, which sees players performing over 100 moves as they battle their way through the latest instalment of the franchise.

The game will feature over 50 playable characters. Namco Bandai has released artwork for ten of the characters that players will be able to use:

Do you fancy having a look at the game in action? Here's the game's debut trailer with plenty of gameplay footage to be seen:

The game will also support QR code functionality, which allows players to hold up special QR codes to unlock characters and power-ups in the game. There will be over 20 QR codes available for use with the title. Here is another trailer for the game that concentrates a little more on the QR code feature:



Dragon Ball Z for Kinect is due to be released in October 2012.

Health Warning: This game does not grant players the power to fly. Please don't try.

OT I am psyched for this, my birthday is in October so just hoping this releases around the 17th, fingers crossed
