Budokai 3 is the latest episode released in 2004 on PS2. In this iteration, we focused on a 2D combat experience. And it’s also the episode with the most complete cast of characters, levels and special techniques. It was the outcome of the Budokai series.

We really improved its overall visual aspect while boosting the combat experience.
