Namco Bandai Locks Down Dragon Ball License For America

If you live in the lovely continent of North America, expect all Dragon Ball games you buy (or your parents buy you) in the next five years to have a Namco Bandai label on them.

The publisher has secured exclusive rights to the franchise, it announced today, granting it the power to publish Dragon Ball games "across all major consoles and hand held platforms." Previously, the licence was handled by both Namco Bandai and Atari. The latter had a dispute with rights holder FUNimation in 2007.

The first three games to ship after the Namco Bandai deal are Dragon Ball: Raging Blast for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo for Wii, and Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans for Nintendo DS.
