Bandai Namco Entertainment has announced that the Season 2 update for Dragon Ball: The Breakers is now available on Nintendo Switch.
This content update introduces Vegeta, the Saiyan Prince, as a “ferocious” new Raider featuring three distinct forms. As with other Raiders, Vegeta can evolve during each match to grow in power and arsenal with each transformation:
- First Form: Saibaman – As the Raider, players start the match as one of many Saibaman on the map where they can switch control between each. They can evolve by having their HP reach zero or by using the “self-destruct” skill on a Survivor.
- Second form: Nappa – Nappa can evolve by defeating civilians and injuring Survivors. He can also plant Saibaman to ambush players and use a Scouter to highlight nearby Survivors. If Nappa fills his evolution energy, or if he is defeated by Survivors, he can evolve to Vegeta.
- Third form: Vegeta – Vegeta gives players abilities such as using a Scouter to highlight nearby Survivors or “Call Nappa” skill to search for Survivors if he was not previously defeated. Players can transform from Vegeta into the Great Ape – this Raider’s fourth and final form – in two ways. They can create a Power Ball, an energy sphere used by Saiyans that mimics the full moon. They can also gather all seven Dragon Balls to summon Shenron, who will then create a full moon enabling them to transform.
- Fourth form: Great Ape – Vegeta’s final form as the Great Ape is the most powerful Raider in the game, giving players devastating attacks and a wide range of moves. He is also invulnerable to attacks anywhere except his one weakness – his tail.
The update has also added Rocky Field, an all-new map that features the iconic Korin Tower, a new Dragon Tier from which players can earn new skins by unlocking ranks, and new Transphere skills for Survivors. Those are Instant Transmission that lets players find allies and reach them instantly, and Ki Control which reduces how long the Ki effect lasts when caught while hiding from a Raider.
Set in the Dragon Ball Xenoverse universe, Dragon Ball: The Breakers is an asymmetrical online multiplayer game that either lets you play as the Raider – one of the franchise’s iconic rivals – or a Survivor – one of seven regular civilians that have no superpowers.
The Raider must use its overwhelming power to eliminate the Survivors, who have been caught in a Temporal Seam – trapping them in a place where space and time have fallen into disarray. They must cooperate with each other to push back the Raider and make their escape using the Super Time Machine, or to use items to try to escape the field strategically.
Dragon Ball: The Breakers is now available at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
