Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit Announced

It's no secret that there are ... things going on over at Atari, if and when games will get published to name just one. While I cannot speak to the issues, and if games like Alone in the Dark, but at least we know the immediate future of Dragon Ball Z.

Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit is the name for Atari's first next-gen title, and from the looks of it gamers can expect the same fast paced action found in previous DBZ Tenkaichi titles. Burst Limit is heading to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and for more detail here is the official press release ...

"NEW YORK, Jan. 16 -- Atari, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATAR) one of the world's most recognized brands and a third-party video game publisher and distributor, today announced that
Dragon Ball Z(R): Burst Limit is in development for Xbox 360(R) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION(R)3 computer entertainment system. Exploding into the next level of intensity with next-gen graphics, online gameplay and lightening fast action, Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit is being developed by NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc. and is slated for a 2008 release.

Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit is revolutionizing the series by entering the realm of next-generation gaming. Complete with fierce online battles and radical 3D graphic effects only possible on Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 system, Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit will blur the line between video game and iconic anime series. Jam-packed with graphically enhanced playable characters, realistic battle stages and environments, players can take hold and experience Dragon Ball Z(R) as never before.

"Atari is excited and ready to offer fans the next iteration of the Dragon Ball Z video game series on the next-gen consoles," said Donny Clay, Producer, Atari, Inc. "With explosive cinematic graphics and online gameplay, fans of the series and of the fighting genre will surely enjoy Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit."

The immensely popular Dragon Ball Z(R) series is the gold standard of anime-based video games, with more than 30 different games and over 11 million units sold since May 2002."

The first thing you'll notice is this game is being put out by Namco Bandai who've handled such anime series as Naruto (on Sony properties), .hack// and Gundam. My question is will other Atari titles face the same fate, being handed off to new developers, and if so who? Time will tell, for now all we can do is wait and see.
