Even though it's not been that long since Dragon Ball: Sparking Zero was first revealed as an untitled Budokai Tenkaichi sequel, Dragon Ball Z fans have still been waiting for more than a decade to hear about a new game. With that in mind, every time we see footage of it, everyone has the exact same big question in mind - when is it releasing?
So far, we've not really had much information about Sparking: Zero's intended release date, with every trailer ending with "Wishlist Now" and implying that it's not really got a date in mind. While that's still true, a recent interview between Twitter users SofianLeGEEK, Yekais, and some key developers from Spike Chunsoft (as shared by Twitter user LaunSSJ), has just given us our best idea yet of when the game might be launching.
As translated by Twitter user ShonenGameZ, SofianLeGEEK and Yekais recently had the chance to speak to Sparking: Zero's producer, Jun Furutani, and series producer, Ryo Mito, who had a ton of new information about the game to reveal. Perhaps the biggest bit of news to come from the conversation was a hint towards Sparking: Zero's release window.
According to LaunSSJ's tweet, Mito and Furutani said that Sparking: Zero doesn't currently have a precise release date at the moment and that the team is continuing to work on the game and doesn't want to rush it in any way. That being said, they reportedly claimed that the considered release window right now is either late 2024 or early 2025.
Although that might be a little disappointing to anyone who was expecting the game to release in Summer 2024 (especially since it's had five years of development time already), it is the best idea yet of when we can expect Sparking: Zero to launch. Even if it does end up coming out in 2025, we've waited more than a decade already, so another year to make the best game possible really isn't a problem.
It's also worth noting that, although LaunSSJ's tweet does include a picture of the Twitter users with Jun Furutani and Ryo Mito, we currently don't have a recording of the interview, so it's not 100 percent confirmed just yet to be true. Until Bandai Namco officially announces a release window, it's worth taking it all with a pinch of salt.
