Dragon Ball Z Arcade is a Fighting Game series based on the aforementioned anime made by Banpresto between 1993 and 1995. Two of the three games were made in a similar way that Street Fighter games (a 2D one-vs-one fighting game) with some nods to Bandai's SNES games and one of them was made into Faux First-Person 3D. The first game was based on Frieza Saga and the next two were based on Cell Saga.


Games in the series

  • Dragon Ball Z - Made in 1993 is the first game on the series based on the Frieza Saga. You can choose between the three Saiyans (Goku, Vegeta and Gohan), Piccolo, three members of the Ginyu Force (Ginyu himself, Recoome and Burter) and Frieza (in his final form), which is the Final Boss.
  • Dragon Ball Z: V.R.V.S.note  - Made in 1994 for the Sega System 32 arcade platform by Sega and Banpresto. A Faux First-Person 3D made for Arcade with a possible port to 3DO Interactive Multiplayer, which later was cancelled. Here the player only controls any of Z-Fighters (all Saiyans and Piccolo) and the final characters to defeat are a Mirror Match and the Final Boss Ozotto, which also is made exclusively for this game with designs made by the own Akira Toriyama.
  • Dragon Ball Z 2: Super Battle - The last game of the series, made in 1995 as a direct sequel to the first DBZ game. Here the game adapted the Cell Saga, in which the character can choose between all the Saiyan fighters into Super Saiyan versions (Goku, Vegeta, Gohan and Trunks), Piccolo, Mr. Satan, three of the Androids (16, 18 and 20 (aka Dr. Gero)) and Cell (in his Perfect form), which is also the Final Boss.
