Dragon Ball Z: Buyū Retsuden, released as Dragon Ball Z: L'Appel du Destin (Dragon Ball Z: The Call of Destiny) in France and Spain and as Dragon Ball Z in Portugal, is a fighting game released for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive based on the Dragon Ball franchise. Due to the great popularity of the Dragon Ball Z anime in these European countries, it was released in Japan on 1 April 1994 and in Europe (France and Spain) in June 1994. The French/Spanish version was renamed Dragon Ball Z: L'Appel du Destin and has the game translated to French language and the instruction booklet in French and Spanish languages. The game was also distributed in Portugal in 1996 where it is simply called Dragon Ball Z. The distributor, Ecofilmes, would take Japanese copies of the game, replace the cover and the manual (but keep the cart), and sell the game as is, promising a free converter cart as the Japanese cartridges cannot fit into European Mega Drives. When the French version came out, they switched to using that version instead.
