Budokai Tenkaichi 2 & 3

Wed 02/09/2020 - 12:34


For those who have seen the name and remember the good old days of the good old days on Playstation 2, of the best fighting games ever made. For those that think " Well it wasn't that great" either didn't master the game mechanics, or mastered the game mechanic but never had a human opponent to play with. If these 2 conditions are not met you cannot understand how great this game actually is. Even though on the outside it may look simple, there is actually quite a lot of depth to the game considering the conditions are met. 

Now I have played a lot of games in my time, and have played some of the best fighting games such as Street Fighter, Tekken, Doa, Budokai Series, Naruto and so on, and hands down this is the best fighting game, even today. But don't just take my word for it, you could look at forums or youtube comments, and you would see that 90% of people are saying "This is the best game" " I would pay big money for this game" the list goes on. 

This game has quite a lot of the old player base yearning for some sort of new game, and yes I hoped for a number 4. But the creator of the series said it was pointless to make a new one because there's nothing else you could add to the game. I disagree as there is always room for improvement.

Over time I have hoped that it would come out on PS3. A Budokai HD collection came out, and I had hope. That a Budokai Tenkaichi HD collection would come and with disappointment, yet nothing again. On PS4 there is nothing like quite the Budokai Tenkaichi series, the new dragon ball fighting games such as Xenoverse felt trashy in comparison. I really like FighterZ but even then nothing compared to this game.

I have seen many petitions unsuccessful, as there aren't enough people aware that there is one, and with petitions, it has a deadline to reach a certain amount of people to sign. If it doesn't reach that point the petition closes. This is also evidence that there is a player base out there and there are people out there that want it badly, and are looking to pay big money including myself just to have something on the newer consoles.

So I am writing a proposition to Namco Bandai, to remake the Budokai Tenkaichi series. If that is too much, then a remaster of the budokai tenkaichi 2 or 3 with online functionality. Now I wouldn’t pay to play online. But with this game I am more than willing, or even to preorder a PS5 with a remake or remaster. I would do it for this game, not any other out there not until a good 3 years after its release, and many others would do the same.

The player base is out there and they are yearning for this game. So there is actually good money to be made for an investor to be reading this even. Because at the end of the day, people are willing to spend big money on the products they love, and that's a fact.

If you were to do a survey and try to reach out to the player base I guarantee the results would be a very positive outcome. For those fans that are reading this, please forward this and share to everyone that if we work together and show Namco Bandai that we really want this, fingers crossed it will happen. Thanks for reading.

 I think a new game with original story would be good rather than a remake. They can give it to A+ games which are the developers of Kill la Kill If. A Dragon Ball game similar to Kill la Kill If would be really great and it would be a good successor to the Budokai Tenkaichi series.

I hope port of tenkaichi trilogy (or sparking meteor only) for Switch was made in the future.

For beginning, a port of Budokai HD collection was cool.

Sorry for the long reply, didn't realise anyone replied back lol. Anyway just wanted to say that Playstation posted on its youtube channel in the community tab. That the Playstation came out 20 years ago, what disc did you pop in the tray right away?

The game thats on the top with the most liked comments is Budokai Tenkaichi 3. I mean what are the odds of that? Out of all the ps2 games that one is at the top. For those of you that don't know the game in and out, this is proof enough. Now I am hoping we can get enough likes and comments on this youtube post for playstation to notice. As well as attention on this post and forum so the publisher can see the potential profit in them for this.

I am sure with enough likes and attention from both the forum and the youtube post, this could get looked into with hopefully a remaster or remake done or anything! I have posted the link below.


If you could also share both this post and the youtube post to others so we can get more people in on this. If we bound together we can get this done!!
