It’s a good day for dragon ball fans as Bandai Namco has brought about a whole new dragon ball game for the players.
Despite there being so many dragon ball games out there this one looks pretty different. The main difference is that it is an asynchronous online survival game rather than the typical brawling DBZ games we have seen in the past. The game is about 7 survivors against one super-powerful villain.
Dragon Ball: The Breakers Gameplay
You either play as the villain a.k.a. raider invading the planet or you play as one of the seven survivors. The raiders will be among the most vicious villains of dragon ball and the DBZ universe namely Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu, and hopefully more to be seen in future updates. The raider has been given extraordinary powers to destroy everything in order to stop the survivors from escaping.
The survivors are supposed to escape using a time machine while evading the attacks from the raider. The survivors get a multitude of methods to escape from the raider and also weapons to fight against the raider but sadly, no superpowers. You also get chances to fight back the raider though Dragon Change which allows you to temporarily transform into heroes.
And if you manage to collect all the seven dragon balls in a given amount of time, then you can summon the wish-granting dragon Shenron, who gives you additional benefits against the raider. But be careful as the raider can also summon the dragon.
Here is the official announcement trailer of the game:
