Ever wanted to create your own character in the Dragon Ball universe and see what it would look like to fight side by side with Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, and even Trunks? Starting today on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, fans can take the fight straight to the enemy and see the Dragon Ball universe unfold before them. With these launches also comes the news of the PC (Steam) based version, which will release digitally on the 27th, while the physical versions of the game will launch in Mexico on February 27th, 2015.
Developed by the famed videogame developer Dimps, the game seeks to pull players into the universe as it is tilted on its head and time-traveling hooligans, villains rather known as Towa and Mira seek to create temporal distortions into the past as part of their evil scheme. This time around players will jump through time in order to stop these enemies by creating their own characters and assisting the Z fighters in stopping these terrible troublemakers from destroying all time as they know it in the Dragon Ball universe history.
“Dragon Ball is one of the most beloved anime franchises in the world, and the overwhelming fan support and devotion has driven us to constantly evolve and improve Dragon Ball video game content as technology advances.” said Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. “The Dimps team has truly delivered a new perspective in storytelling and Dragon Ball gameplay and we are extremely pleased that the fans can experience their favorite manga on the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and STEAM for the first time ever.”
