If you had “Dragon Ball survival horror game announced” on your 2021 Bingo card, you just won big.
Dragon Ball: The Breakers is an online “asymmetrical action game” that pits seven survivors against one “raider,” Cell, Buu, or Frieza. The survivors are tasked with surviving the onslaught of the overpowered raider and escaping via Trunks’ time machine. It looks to break away from the traditional fighting or RPG games we’ve come to expect from the Dragon Ball franchise.
The Breakers comes from veteran Dragon Ball developer Dimps (Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai). It will be a part of their Xenoverse universe, and will include “some sort of tie-in to save data from Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for those who have it,” according to IGN.
The game’s trailer, featured below, shows off various ways characters can fight against and hide from the raider. Oolong finally gets his chance to shine and looks to be one of the playable characters. A closed beta test is coming “soon,” according to the game’s trailer.
Dragon Ball: The Breakers arrives next year on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. It will be also be compatible with the PS5 and Xbox Series S/X.
