PS3 box art; don't mind the original box layout

バーストリミットの拡張Doragonbōru aratame: Bāsutorimitto no kakuchō) is the sequel to the Budokai series spinoff, Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit. It is available for the PlayStation 3 (Move, Remote Play supported), Xbox 360 (Kinect supported), Nintendo 3DS and Wii U! It includes more "Sagas", more characters, "beefed up" Drama Pieces, and a trailer hinting the next new main saga of the Dragon Ball series and franchise!!


Burst Limit 2 is similar to its predecessor by playing in a 3D plane, with very gorgeous visuals and character models. A few things that have been updated include the Drama Pieces from the original having a better control scheme and more tension (including a few new ones at that), each character has their own number of super special moves (Ex.: Vegeta may have about six different ones, depending on the form playable), there is a world map section during the "Saga Chronicles" mode that is similar to Budokai 3's Dragon World, and some other tweaks.

  • The Xbox 360 port is entitled Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit II... The irony suggests that it is only available for that console, but this is more of a mistake if anything.
  • There are no Wii U box covers as of right now; this is a bit weird since there have been no signs of what a Wii U title's box art will look like.
