Dragon Ball 3: Gokūden is a role playing game released only in Japan by Bandai on October 27, 1989, for the Famicom. It is the third Dragon Ball video game for Famicom (its predecessors being Dragon Ball: Shenron no Nazo and Dragon Ball: Daimaō Fukkatsu).
The gameplay is similar to that of Daimaō Fukkatsu, its predecessor. The player moves Goku space by space around a board-style world where he encounters several characters. Some characters offer information, and others have to be fought. The outcome of each battle is determined by the randomly generated hand of cards. The opponents turn over the cards in turns, and the action on the card combined with the order it is revealed determines the attack which is then animated in the panel above the set of cards.
