Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, originally published as Dragon Ball Z: Sparking! Neo (ドラゴンボールZ Sparking! NEO Doragon Bōru Zetto Supākingu! Neo) in Japan, is the second installment in the Budokai Tenkaichi series. The game originally featured 129 characters and 16 stages, though the Japanese and PAL Wii versions came with five additional characters (Demon King Piccolo, Cyborg Tao, Appule, Frieza Soldier, and Pilaf Robot/combined form) and an extra stage as compensation of their late releases (all of the added characters reappear in Tenkaichi 3's English version).

Emulation Information

Controller Map Overlap

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 is capable of using both GameCube controllers and Wii Remotes. If a physical controller is set to emulate both a GameCube Controller and a Wii Remote concurrently, it will operate both devices at the same time. To fix, migrate controls to use separate physical controllers.

Pause Menu

When playing using an emulated Classic controller, only one entry in the pause menu can be selected. This is due to the invisible IR cursor hovering in a set position on the screen. To gain full access to the pause menu, you can bind IR Hide to an input in Wii Remote configuration and hold that input while selecting menu items.
