Extra Info on DBZ: Buu's Fury by Webfoot and infogrames
The Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku series is a series of video games for the Game Boy Advance, based on the popular anime series Dragon Ball. All three games are action role-playing games. The first game, Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku was developed by Webfoot Technologies and released in 2002. The game was followed by two sequels: Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku II released in 2003, and Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury released in 2004.
The games are action adventure RPG's. The player controls a Dragon Ball character and experiences various portions of the franchise. Combat is the main focus of the game. The player can hit the A button to use physical strikes, while the B button allows the player to unleash a variety of energy based attacks. Energy attacks drain an energy meter that recharges when it is not in use. Energy attacks can be cycled through with the L button, and more energy attacks are learned as the player progresses through the game. Later games in the series featured transformations that made the player character stronger temporarily. By defeating enemies, the player receives experience points, which allow the player character to level up and grow stronger. Later games in the series also feature consumable items that would restore the player character's health or energy, and equipment, which increased the stats of the player character. In Buu's Fury and Legacy of Goku II, the player could also use a device called a scouter to look up the stats of the various characters in the game, as well as basic information about them.
Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury is the third and final game in the series. It was released on September 14, 2004 in North America. The game focuses on the final parts of the Dragon Ball Z series (season 7), namely the battles with Majin Buu. The game added several new additions to the series. First, the game added equipment, which could be equipped to characters to alter their stats and provide various other benefits. The game also allowed players to allocate their own stat points, of which three were given per level. Also added was the ability to block by holding the R button, and also to energy block by holding the B button while blocking. Using the energy block slowly drains the user's energy gauge. Both techniques greatly decrease the amount of damage that is received from attacks. The game also added various other features such as fusions and the ability to transform into a Super Saiyan 3. Although many features were added, the ability to use charge attacks by holding and releasing the A button was eliminated.
The dialogues used in the English edition of the game are very similar, and sometimes identical, to the ones used in the English dubbed animated series.
