A new Dragon Ball game must be released every year since it is decreed in the sky. And as per fate dictates, with the announcement of Dragon Ball: The Breakers for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2022, the universe will finally feel right if there isn’t a Saiyan adventure in the works. How will the new survival game, Breakers, compare to the finest Dragon Ball games? Breakers will be a huge departure for the franchise. Will it compete with titles like Dragon Ball Fighter Z and The Legacy of Goku 2 for the top spot? Or will it be discarded along with failures like Dragon Ball Z For Kinect and Dragon Ball Z: Sagas?
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
In terms of gameplay, the game is very similar to its predecessor. Mostly set in 3D battle arenas modeled after Dragon Ball universe locations, it almost feels canon. The central hub, an expanded version of Toki-Toki City known as Conton City. Conton City, according to the game’s creators, is seven times larger than Toki-Toki City. Players can freely traverse the hub world and, in some areas, fly once they have unlocked the ability to fly. Players can also visit other hubs, such as the Namekian Village and Frieza’s ship.
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3
Budokai Tenkaichi 3 has 161 characters, almost the most in any fighting game. Tobal 2, designed by Akira Toriyama, comes in second. Ryo Mito stated that the game would include previously unseen characters created specifically for the game. On the release date, Gamestop offered an exclusive version with a bonus DVD containing the top ten television series battles as voted by fans.
Dragon Ball Z: Hyper Dimension
The fighting game Dragon Ball Z: Hyper Dimension is similar to Street Fighter II. Players compete against other characters in one-on-one matches. The fighter who manages to deplete the opponent’s health bar wins the bout and the match. The game has three modes of play, but the story mode is not available in the European version. Goku, Majin Vegeta, Gotenks, Gohan, Vegetto, Piccolo, Majin Buu, Kid Buu, Frieza, and Perfect Cell are among the ten characters on the roster.
Dragon Ball Z: Super Butoden 2
Super Butden 2 emphasizes a six-button control scheme, customized to your liking. Special moves are available in a standard format, with the majority of commands consisting of button combinations. Characters can also dash back and forth by pressing L and R on their keyboards. Players can also charge their Ki gauge by pressing the Y and B buttons to launch a Ki blast attack.
The split-screen feature from the first game returns. The split view keeps fighters far away in the playfield. However, their positions are kept via an improved on-screen radar. Water-based arenas, the ability to counterattack special moves, and meteor combos to perform consecutive attacks are all new additions to the sequel.
Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors
Dragon Ball Z: Legendary Super Warriors features a turn-based card fighting system. You have the freedom to use the total available 125 cards in the game. Attack cards, support cards for healing or stat boosting, and defense cards are the three types of cards. Character-specific cards are to be used strategically during battles in the game.
Each character has four stats: health, strength, ki, and speed. Health points determine how long you can fight for, Strength determines how much damage melee cards deal, Ki determines how much damage beam cards deal, and Speed determines the accuracy of the player’s attacks, the phase of battle the character is in, and the chance of avoiding an enemy attack.
Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku 2 & Buu’s Fury
The games are action-adventure role-playing games. The player takes control of a Dragon Ball character and travels through the franchise. The game’s main focus is combat. The player can use physical strikes by pressing the ‘A’ button, while the ‘B’ button allows the player to unleash a variety of energy-based attacks. Energy attacks deplete an energy gauge, which slowly recharges when not in use. The ‘L’ button can be used to cycle through energy attacks. Also, more energy attacks can be learned as the player progresses through the game. Legacy of Goku II and Buu’s Fury both featured transformations that temporarily enhanced the player character, utilizing their own ‘rage mode’ mechanic.
Dragon Ball FighterZ
The gameplay is influenced by ideas from other fighting games. The control scheme and team mechanics are inspired by the Marvel vs. Capcom series, and the overall presentation is similar to other Arc System Works games. From an initial roster of Dragon Ball franchise characters, each player chooses three characters to form a team. One character is in command and can be replaced by any of the other characters at any time. Players can also summon one of their other characters to perform an “Assist” move, allowing them to attack and combo with the entire team at the same time. For a player to win the game, all three characters on the same team must be defeated.
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3
The capsule system is a continuation of the first and second Budokai games. Every character in the game can be customized with capsules. These capsules affect their battle status in various ways. Each character has seven empty capsule slots. Each capsule occupies a predetermined number of these slots.
Certain capsules can be used to gain additional slots and make more room. Capsules are required to use any move or transformation in the game, except for basic melee attacks, throws, Ki blasts, and dragon rushes. In addition, these provide various status effects during battle, such as better attack power after a certain amount of health is lost.
Dragon Ball Z: The Legend
Although each battle starts on the ground, the majority of the action takes place in the air. The characters fly around each other and use rapid punches, kicks, and ki blasts, either individually or in rapid succession by holding the assigned button for a short period. The characters have a finite amount of ki that they can charge over time. If the player exhausts all of their available ki, their character will stop fighting, leaving them vulnerable to an attack. The life meter is a new system. It switches whenever damage is taken or dealt. Ultimately, the finisher is a satisfying cut-scene.
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot
Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot currently has seven playable characters that the player will guide throughout the story. Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Piccolo, Future Trunks, Gotenks, and Vegito are among them. The player will unlock new characters to play as they progress through the game. In addition to the playable characters, the player will be able to choose two supporting characters to assist them in battle, each with their unique special moves. Krillin, Yamcha, Tien Shinhan, Chiaotzu, Android 18, Goten, and Kid Trunks are some of the current characters.
Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2
The Galaxy Mode replaces the standard story mode from previous Dragon Ball fighting games. There are several mission paths on these planets. Each mission has different advantages and disadvantages that will affect the overall fight. Completing some of these missions will grant you access to powerups and/or new mission paths.
Other modes of play include the Battle Zone, in which players compete against fighters from various zones, on and offline battle modes in which players can compete against friends or random players from around the world, and the World Tournament, in which players compete in either Tenkaichi Budokai or Cell games-style fighting competition.
Dragon Ball: Origins
The primary mode of the game is “Episode Select,” which allows players to play each episode installment in chronological order or at random. Players can return to these installments to try for a higher rank or to look for items they missed.
Some levels include racing elements in which players on Nimbus must arrive at a specific point or catch up with an opponent within a certain amount of time or before the opponent moves out of range.
Dragon Ball Dokkan Battle
The game incorporates elements from the board game, collectible card game, and puzzle genres. The main game consists of levels that function similarly to board games, with areas dedicated to items, power-ups, traps, and fights. During the fights, the player’s characters engage in combat with an enemy using a puzzle system akin to match-3 games.
The player should match multiple coloured orbs to deal an attack they like. The player unlocks “Dokkan Mode” for one of their characters after a certain number of orb matches, which requires them to tap 7 targets in a Z-shaped configuration as a ki orb passes over them.
Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit
The game allows the player to battle other characters controlled by the in-game AI or another player, either online or offline, depending on the mode of play selected by the player or players. The game’s Z Chronicles story mode allows players to relive key moments from the three Dragon Ball sagas through the use of Drama Pieces. Drama Pieces provide an immense Dragon Ball experience.
Winning a top-rated PlayStation 3 title and nominated for a Spike Video Game Award for the best fighting game, Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit is an insane Dragon Ball Z game.
Dragon Ball Fusions allows players to design their characters, form teams, and collect Dragon Ball characters to fuse and create new ones to use in battle. It also allows players to fuse photographs of themselves or their friends.
