Dragon Ball Z Won’t Be Winning Over Any New Kinect Fans

Namco Bandai’s next Dragon Ball Z game is going to be an Xbox 360 exclusive, harnessing the powers of Kinect to present the series’ debut first-person anime fighting game. Not a bad idea in theory, but it looks practically identical to last year’s lousy Ultimate Tenkaichi, only in first-person with full-body gestures used to activate all the quick time event attacks. Anyone really want to stand in front of their TV throwing rapid-fire fists at an invisible punching bag? I didn’t think so.

One nifty feature, though, is the QR code functionality. Players will be able to hold up special cards for the Kinect to scan in new characters and power-ups. That’s kinda cool. I guess.
