Since 1986, many video games based on the property have been released in Japan, with the majority of the games being produced by Bandai. Most of the fighting games from the 16-bit and 32-bit era were also localized and released in European countries like France, Spain and Portugal because of the strong following the series already had in those countries. Up until Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout, none of the Dragon Ball games were localized for the North American market, with the exception of Dragon Power (a version of the first Dragon Ball game for the Famicom that was graphically altered due to the lack of the license). Since 2002, Infogrames (now known as Atari) obtained the license to produce and release Dragon Ball games for the North American and international market.
However, with the expiration of the Atari deal in 2009, Namco Bandai Games will assume the North American and European distribution rights, officially starting in 2010 (but really starting with the 2009 releases of Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans on Nintendo DS, Dragon Ball Raging Blast for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo on Wii).
