A new Dragon Ball game has been announced, features asymmetrical survival multiplayer


Dragon Ball games tend to follow the same trend: you play as Goku, usually following the events of his victory against Piccolo, and then the Dragon Ball Z story is retold for the millionth time, sometimes ending at the Cell Saga, other times making it all the way to the end of DBZ. That's exactly what the previous game, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot did. This time around, however, Bandai Namco is going in a completely new direction. Dragon Ball: The Breakers is a new game that bucks the trend of all other DBZ games, as it's going to be a co-op survival game with asymmetrical multiplayer.

In The Breakers. you'll be able to either control a team of seven human characters trying to survive, or you can play as iconic DBZ villains like Cell or Freiza, who are trying to wipe out the opposing team. The human team will have to cooperate in order to find powerups, weapons, and supplies in order to escape without being killed. Dragon Ball: The Breakers is set for release on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch for sometime next year.

This is like telling someone to "Bing it", I don't think anyone thinks about Evolve when talking about asymmetrical multiplayer games.

Or at all, really.

Game looks alright, but Bandainamco will probably sell it for $60 plus DLC.
probably, but it if it actually lives up to the hype, it'll be very worth it

also, first dragonball game i've seen without goku

Dragon Ball...doesn't that have that old pervy martial-arts master?
How's that gonna fly in today's stupid overly-sensitive, pro-female-biased climate?
This is a Dragon Ball Z game, not Dragon Ball. Roshi was in like two or three episodes of DBZ, and his character was of no real consequence. He definitely won't be in this, nor does he need to be.

Also weird that this was the first place your mind went, clearly you're overloading on bullshit right-wing culture war content.

I have never seen a franchise getting milked to death like this. This is even worse than AC and FIFA.

So you've never seen a successful, long-running franchise before? DBZ has had games on nearly every console ever released. They've mostly been fighting games, and they haven't always been good, but there have been a number of solid releases for the IP lately. Kakarot and FighterZ, to name just a couple.

I for one appreciate the fact that they're at least trying to branch out a bit with the genres and gameplay mechanics, even if this one in particular is likely to be a pass for me. Better than taking the copy-paste route of Pokemon or FIFA, certainly.

Pokémon only milks the same story sometimes. It seems that for every dozen new DB games only one seems to be new (I can only recall part of Xenoverse). Even FIFA puts a new story mode every year now instead of showing the same story over and over.

It'll be nice to play a Dragon Ball game which isn't rehashing the same story again and again.
As cool as it is to be Goku or Trunks and fuck shit up and save the world, we know the outcome. I really wanted to love DBZ Kakarot, but it just can't hold my attention, I hope this one can.

I don't see how these characters will triumph over Perfect Cell, so it'll be interesting to see how it all plays out.

I don't know much about Dragon Ball; one of the things I do know, thanks to an old Death Battle episode, is that Roshi exists...and that the general character archetype (another example: Pepe LePew, the amorous skunk) has waned in popularity for idiotic reasons.

So if I accidentally conflated DB with DBZ, that's why; not savvy when it comes to that anime.

This new approach sounds really interesting! Adventure combined with awesome fights have proved to fit well in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, so a multi-player co-op adventure will be amazing! ^_^

Can't wait to try it out! :D
