A year doesn't pass without the release of a new Dragon Ball Z fighting game, it seems, but this fall's entry plans to do something different with the anime license. Namco Bandai just announced that the next Dragon Ball Z game will be developed to use the Kinect motion sensor bar on Xbox 360, letting fans interact with the game by performing movements with their limbs and bodies.

Simply titled Dragon Ball Z for Kinect, the game will include more than 100 unique moves, with more than 50 playable characters included in the set. Additionally, Namco Bandai says the game will feature QR code functionality, letting players scan such codes with the Kinect camera to unlock power-ups and fighters. And in addition to a cinematic Story Mode, the game will also include a separate Score Attack option. Screenshots have yet to be released, but if it's anything like the Dragon Ball Z games of the past, it should look a whole lot like the anime series.

Dragon Ball Z for Kinect is due out in North America and Europe in October.
