Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden’s Fighter And Assist System Detailed



We recently got a look at Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden’s Goku in his Super Saiyan God Super Saian form (geez, that’s a mouthful), and Bandai Namco follows up with some more gameplay footage from the latest demo of the game.



In the video, a lady who goes by the name “Honda Cheese” of the Extreme Forces will present some of the main features of Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden with the demo of the game.


In the demo, you can pick Free Battle and a Vs. Battle that you can select to play against other players. During the character select screen, you can pick out of various fighters and assist characters. Fighters take up one whole slot out of the three available, while assist characters take up half a slot.


You can choose to go with three fighter characters without any assists, or go with one fighter and four assists. That said, it’ll be up to you to decide whether you’d like to have more characters with their own health bars, or have more moves from assists. In battle, the commands are pretty simple, as you can press the Y button to do a light attack, and keep pressing it repeatedly to connect it as a combo.


The A button shoots energy attacks, and X button for heavy hits. Characters can be changed by touching the bottom screen, and you can switch while connecting combos between characters. Both fighters and assist characters have their own delay.


At the 5:05 mark, Vegeta is shown performing a combo and linking into his Galick Gun move. While the player doesn’t retaliate from the attack in this occasion, you can return fire for an “energy beam struggle” with whoever button-mashes the most being the winner.


Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden will release in Japan on June 11, 2015 for Nintendo 3DS.
