Bandai Namco announced a new Dragon Ball title for Nintendo Switch and other platforms. The game is called Dragon Ball: The Breakers which is an asymmetrical multiplayer game where one player takes the role of one of several powerful Dragon Ball villains such as Cell or Frieza, who must hunt down and absorb seven civilian survivors controlled by the other players.
The players on the other hand must band together to construct a time machine that will allow them to escape. It is due to launch sometime in 2022.
About Dragon Ball: The Breakers
Taking place in the DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE universe, DRAGON BALL: THE BREAKERS allows you to play as one of the iconic rivals of the franchise, the “Raider” , or one of the seven “Survivors” with no super powers. The Raider will have to use its overwhelming power to eliminate the ”Survivors”. These regular civilians have been caught in a “Temporal Seam”, trapping them in a place where space and time are in disarray, and will have to cooperate in order to push back the Raider and escape using the Super Time Machine. Players can also utilize various items on the field and try escaping the field strategically.
In addition, DRAGON BALL: THE BREAKERS will link save game data with DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2. Stay tuned for more details in the future.
