For the first time in any Dragon Ball franchise game, Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Tenkaichi lets players build their own custom fighters to battle online and off, proving once and for all that every Akira Toriyama character is the same guy with different hair and accessories.

This is why I could never get into Dragon Ball (and I've tried on multiple occasions). I can't keep track of who is who. I watch this trailer for the character creation feature coming in the latest PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 installment of the fighting franchise on October 25, and I can't tell what character is made custom and which is part of series history.

They all look the same to me. Oh my god, I'm a Dragon Ball Z racist.
