In Dragon Ball games, people are likely used to playing as Saiyans. They’ll face the series’ larger-than-life enemies as someone capable of going toe-to-toe with them. The upcoming asymmetrical seven-versus-one game Dragon Ball: The Breakers switches that up. People are Survivors attempting to deal with an iconic Raider. To help better understand its development so far, Siliconera spoke with Producer Ryosuke Hara about what people can expect. Among the thing is that Dragon Ball: The Breakers cross-platform play and cross-save functionality isn’t being considered “at the moment.”
Jenni Lada: When did work begin on Dragon Ball: The Breakers?
Ryosuke Hara: Including the conceptual period, I would say that the game has been in development for around 3 years.
How will Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2’s story, assets, and gameplay feature in and influence Dragon Ball: The Breakers?
Hara: Dragon Ball: The Breakers and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 shares the same universe, so many may realize that there are links between these two titles in terms of background story and assets. We cannot inform in detail at the moment but there will be save data link among these two titles so please wait for more details in the future.
What kind of support do you expect to offer for Dragon Ball: The Breakers and how do you expect the roadmap for it might like look? How often could people see new characters?
Hara: It’s a little early to talk about the upcoming plans at the moment. Please stay tuned for more updates!
What were some of the biggest influences when developing Dragon Ball: The Breakers, both in terms of Dragon Ball and other asymmetrical games?
Hara: Although the game does take the form of an asymmetrical game, the main focus for Dragon Ball: The Breakers was to express the overwhelming power difference between characters with Superpower and normal human beings in a very Dragon Ball-like way.
So, I have to say that the biggest influences were the scenes in the Dragon Ball universe that represented this concept. Such as the scene where Bulma was hiding from the enemies on Planet Namek, or where the civilians were absorbed by Cell in Ginger Town.
Will Dragon Ball: The Breakers support cross-platform play and cross-save? If not, is that a feature you might consider in the future?
Hara: There is no plan to support cross-platform and cross-save at the moment.
Dragon Ball: The Breakers will come to the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2022.
