Atari has today announced Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit, a new next generation instalment in the Dragon Ball Z franchise from Namco Bandai Games.

Developed by Namco Bandai / Dimps, DBZ: Burst Fire Limit promises to revolutionise the series, with next-gen visuals, online gameplay and lightning fast action. We're told the game will "blur the line between the videogame and the iconic anime series" with graphically enhanced playable characters and realistic battle stages.

Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit is pencilled in for release this year for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
