Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans

A turn-based sprite-based role-playing game set in the Dragon Ball Z universe from the makers of the Xenosaga and Baten Kaitos series.


Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans (known in Japan as Dragon Ball Kai: Saiyajin Raishuu, which loosely translates to "Dragon Ball Revised: Saiyan Invasion") is a sci-fi fantasy turn-based RPG developed by Monolith and published by Namco Bandai for the Nintendo DS in Japan (on April 29, 2009), Europe (on November 6, 2009), and North America (on November 10, 2009).

Based on the Dragon Ball manga and anime series, Attack of the Saiyans is an RPG by the studio behind the Xenosaga and Baten Kaitos series of RPGs. While it primarily focuses on the "Saiyan Saga" part of the Dragon Ball Z series (where Goku and his allies must prepare for the arrival of two powerful Saiyan invaders), the game also includes some earlier prologue storylines (including the 23rd World Martial Arts Tournament five years prior, some training beforehand, and a filler storyline afterwards).

It is the first game to receive the "Dragon Ball Kai" name (although in Japan only), tying it in with the anime remaster of the same name.
