Dragon Ball: Sparking Zero Release Date Possibly Narrowed Down to October

Dragon Ball: Sparking Zero, one of the most anticipated Dragon Ball games, has been shrouded in mystery regarding its release date. While rumors pointed to a late 2024 or early 2025 release, recent leaks suggest a more specific timeframe.

Dragon Ball: Sparking Zero Release Date Possibly Narrowed Down to October

Previously, rumors placed Sparking Zero’s release sometime between spring and summer 2024. This aligns with the game receiving age ratings, typically done when a game is content complete. Ratings in various countries, including a recent one hinting at a 2024 release, further solidify this window.

However, a new leak by notable anime game enthusiast SergioM3R claims to have pinpointed the exact date: October 1, 2024. This information was reportedly datamined from Bandai Namco’s official Sparking Zero website.

While SergioM3R acknowledges the inaccuracy of leaked release dates for other Bandai Namco games (Synduality: Echo of Ada and Elden Ring), Sparking Zero’s date seems plausible, especially within an October timeframe.

The October release has sparked mixed reactions. Some fans are excited, especially considering the last Budokai Tenkaichi game, Tenkaichi 3, also launched in October (October 4, 2007, in Japan). However, others remain skeptical. With several character reveals still pending and only four months until October, some question if there’s enough time for Bandai Namco’s rumored monthly character reveals.

Fans speculate that an official reveal, including a trailer and release date confirmation, might occur at the upcoming Summer Game Fest 2024, where Bandai Namco is participating. Nevertheless, leaks remain unconfirmed, and official word from Bandai Namco is necessary for certainty.
