Recently, the operation of Dragon Ball Online in Korea has been somewhat disappointing, but Korean DBO fans still carry forward the spirit of "never give up" and show their support for this game with actual deeds like making DBO-related funny videos. Take a video for example: in the video, a player crazily cast spells to attack a poor monster, which is really a comedic scene.
Published by Netmarble, Dragon Ball Online Gold was marketed in Korea in early January this year. The game was highly popular in the market at the beginning of its service, however, its boring quest settings and serious bugs (like the one that players can use for money cheats) have quickly worn off players' passion.
A brand new official promotional video for Dragon Ball Online Gold has just been released, showing us the exciting scenes of Tenkaichi Budokai. Maybe it's telling us that at the next test phase, players would be able to participated in this great event.
(officially abbreviated as DBO) is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game being developed simultaneously in Japan and South Korea by NTL, set in the Dragon Ball universe, first introduced by the Dragon Ball Japanese manga in 1984. Dragon Ball Online Gold takes place on Earth, 216 years after the events at the conclusion of the Dragon Ball manga series. A beta testing of Dragon Ball Online was initially announced to begin in South Korea during the summer of 2007 with a Japanese beta to soon follow, but has been delayed and was slated for the second half of 2009. In March 2009, it was announced that TBWA\Korea obtained the marketing rights for Dragon Ball Online Gold and would run a full-scale marketing campaign from April to August 2009.
Series creator Akira Toriyama has a great deal of creative control over the project, both contributing to and supervising the story and art design, including character and location arrangements. It has been stated that Toriyama has been working on character designs for this project for the last five years.
