DRAGON BALL: THE BREAKERS is the latest DRAGON BALL video game, and it’s releasing this week worldwide. Unlike the previous ones, it’s not a fighting or an action adventure game, but an asymmetrical action game.

A team of 7 ordinary citizens have to try and survive against powerful villains from the Dragon Ball series (also controlled by one of the players), in order to escape. To do so, players will have to team up with their fellow survivors… or try your luck on their own. Escaping definitely won’t be an easy task when your opponent is Boo or Cell!

To celebrate the launch of the game, Bandai-Namco have shared a new trailer for the game:

There’s also a TV commercial to check out:

Finally, here’s some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots:

DRAGON BALL: THE BREAKERS is an online asymmetrical action game in which a team of 7 ordinary citizens tries to survive the Raider (a classic DRAGON BALL rival such as Cell, Frieza, and Buu), who will hunt them down and evolve during the game into an unstoppable force. Escaping won’t be so easy!

  • Escape as a team… or on your own! Cooperate with others while there is still time, but the Raider or other Survivors’ decisions might force you to go at it alone. What will be your playstyle?
  • Trapped in a Temporal Seam. Escape from large maps composed of several areas, but be careful; the Raider always watches over you and may destroy areas to reduce the space at your disposal, making your chances of escaping much slimmer.
  • Enjoy playing as a Raider: an iconic Dragon Ball rival! As a Raider, you will enjoy overwhelming powers to hunt and wipe out Survivors. Master each Raider’s unique abilities to track, catch your victims to evolve, and become even more powerful!
  • Customize your playstyle. Whether you’re a Raider or a Survivor, choose your progression path and unlock skills, skins, and items to fine-tune your own personal strategy to escape as a Survivor or triumph as a Raider.
  • Enjoy unique power-ups and items. Vehicles, weapons, capsules… take the most out of each gimmick to outsmart the Raider and escape from the Temporal Seam!

DRAGON BALL: THE BREAKERS (Switch) comes out on October 13th in Japan, and October 14th in Europe and North America.
