Last year's Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai was mostly well-received by fighting fans, not least those who enjoy two-player ad hoc battles and also have a penchant for the Dragon Ball Z anime series on which the game is based.

The just-announced sequel, which pits combatants from DBZ, Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball worlds, will not to tinker with the fundamentals but does offer an apparently improved fighting system, with over 50 new fighting skills and ultimate attacks.

And it does so while wrapping everything up in an all-new story arc following the future world of Trunks on his adventures against rival Majin Buu.

Other than that, it's more or less business as usual – the game even features the same cel-shaded, cartoon-styled graphical look as its predecessor. We'll find out whether it plays any better this May, which is when Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai 2's fighting is schedule to begin.
