Dragon Ball: The Breakers Announced
An eight-person online multiplayer game, Bandai Namco announced that Dragon Ball: The Breakers is now in development.
This title features 7v1 matches in which seven normal “Survivors” find themselves in a mysterious phenomenon called the “Temporal Seam.” While there, they must contend with the overwhelming power of the eighth player, “Raider,” who sets out to obliterate the Survivor team.
The Survivors don’t have any superpowers, so they must rely on power-up items, weapons, and pilotable vehicles to battle and evade the Raider and find the Super Time Machine. Meanwhile, the Raider will take control of Cell, Buu, or Frieza, amassing overwhelming power to destroy the Survivor team throughout the match.
