New Dragon Ball Game Basically Recasts Cell as Friday the 13th’s Jason Voorhees

Dragon Ball: The Breakers is a new asymmetrical multiplayer game that tasks seven survivors with escaping from an all-powerful Cell.

Bandai Namco announced Dragon Ball: The Breakers, an asymmetrical multiplayer game starring the franchises’ pantheon of villains.

The game was announced via a brief trailer, which features Cell prowling the streets, looking for prey. A multiplayer survival-horror game, seven players will need to work together if they want to escape the looming threat of a powerful fighter looking to grow in power. The attacker, known as the “Raider,” must eliminate all the Survivors who will need to use a Super Time Machine to flee via a fracture in time. While Cell is featured as the trailer’s villain, Bandai Namco confirmed that Frieza and Buu will also be playable Raiders.

Survivors will have no abilities and will instead have to rely on special equipment and power-ups to stand against the Raiders. Some of the highlighted items include a rocket launcher, an Attack Ball and what appears to be a scooter. Dragon Ball: The Breakers also features a Survivor character customization mode, which allows players to design their own in-game avatars. Cosmetics can be purchased via credits obtained by playing the game or via real money through microtransactions. Bandai Namco also revealed Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 save data will also link with The Breakers, promising more information on this feature at a later date.

“The Dragon Ball series has been a global fan favorite for over 37 years and Dragon Ball: The Breakers takes the classic over-the-top action formula and offers an innovative twist with its online survival gameplay,” said Lin Leng, Senior Director of Brand Marketing at Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. “Both new players and long-time fans can expect an extremely fun and engaging experience; whether playing as a Raider hunting down fellow gamers or as a Survivor, playing cooperatively to team-up against an iconic rival.”

Dragon Ball: The Breakers is currently scheduled to launch in 2022 and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. The game will also be compatible with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S but a native version has yet to be announced. Bandai Namco also confirmed that players interested in trying Dragon Ball: The Breakers early can look forward to a Closed Beta Test on PC. More information on this initiative will be revealed in the near future.
