How's That Dragon Ball Online MMORPG Coming Along?

Well, it's got a soaring theme song, that's for sure. Bulma in a bikini, too.

Dragon Ball Online takes place 200 years after the manga's end, when an organisation has divided up the world, which players set out to reunite. What's more, players start off as kids, grow into adults and can select any of the major races—Saiyan, Nameks and Humans. Just as you'd expect with any MMO, players can also make their own avatars.

Artist Akira Toriyama is lending a hand to design characters, backgrounds and generally make sure the game looks all Toriyama-ey.

Originally announced for 2008, the game is going into closed beta testing next month. It is announced for release in South Korea this year.

    Well damn being a fan of DBZ it certainly does look good, though will be interested to see how it plays. Keep an eye on this one please Kotaku :D

    Did they have fluro pink nosebleeds?

    So does the ending mean that you can revisit past battles from Dragonball Z?

      From what i've heard, yes, you can assist 'Time Patrol Trunks' in order to help out battles from the past that are in danger of being altered. Think caverns of time from WoW.

      Also, saiyans are certainly NOT playable, the only races that have so far been announced are human, namek and MAJIN. A quick trip to it's Wikipedia site (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragonball_Online) would have told you that Brian

        You're using wikipedia as a source? Smart.
