    The potential title for the Japanese version.

    Bandai Namco Entertainment filed a new Dragon Ball trademark for Sparking! Zero in the US, which was previously rumored as the codename for the new Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi game. The Sparking! title is also used as the official name of the Budokai Tenkaichi series in Japan.

    At Dragon Ball Games Battle Hour 2023, Bandai Namco announced a new Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi game is currently in development. The reveal trailer showed Goku powering up to his Super Saiyan Blue transformation from Dragon Ball Super. Official details has been scarce, but several rumors suggest the title will feature a massive roster of Dragon Ball Super characters.

    Dragon Ball Sparking! Zero Trademark

    The new Sparking! Zero trademark was filed on September 26 by Bandai Namco in the US. Although the Sparking! Zero trademark was filed in the US, it’s likely a measure by Bandai Namco to secure the new Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi game’s official title in Japan and Asia. Platforms, a release date, and further information about the new Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi game have not been officially revealed yet. 

    Dragon Ball Z: Sparking! was released as Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi in the US. Moreover, Dragon Ball Z: Sparking! Neo and Dragon Ball Z: Sparking! Meteor were released as Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 and Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 in the US respectively.
