Recreating the popular Dragon Ball Z series’ epic combat in all its glory, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast includes a host of exciting gameplay options including powerful and customizable attacks, stunning HD graphics, and a variety of gameplay modes including online or offline versus and tournament matches. Dragon Ball: Raging Blast features more than 70 characters, including transformations, facing off against each other in iconic battles throughout the Dragon Ball Z series’ sagas as their favorite heroes and villains.
New interactive and massively destructible environments lend an enhanced layer of intensity to the battle as characters can now take immense damage from being smashed into mountains, buildings and debris during heated battles. On top of classic signature moves, characters also benefit from a new “Super Rising” move which allows players to quickly fly upwards throughout large-scale battle stages, adding a new layer of strategy and tactics to the melee. As players progress through the game and win more battles, they receive items and Super Attacks as rewards. Players can then utilize these with the Ultimate Customize option to configure up to three customization profiles of each character, which can then be used in versus battles. Dragon Ball: Raging Blast is set to deliver more explosive fighting action than ever seen before!
Developed by acclaimed game studio SPIKE, Dragon Ball: Raging Blast is rated “T” for teen audiences by the ESRB and carries an MSRP of $59.99.
