Dragon Ball Legends, like all other works in the Dragon Ball canon, makes use of the entire cast of memorable characters. The gacha mechanics in the game are what really tie this cast together and keep players coming back for more.
The difficulty lies in determining the most effective units among such a large cast. Our team has already attempted this herculean task and created a ranking system for these combatants to save you time.
All right, let’s get down to business.
What is Dragon Ball Legends?
Dragon Ball Legends is an iOS and Android fighting game.
In it, you and another player face off in real time using three characters of your choosing from an ever-expanding pool. Each defeated character is replaced by the next in line. The winner is the first fighter on either team to knock out all three members of the other team.
Victories in battles will count toward rankings and other rewards.
Both a story mode and a quick battle mode (with names to be announced later) will feature AI opponents.
The in-game visuals are stunning 3D creations. However, the graphics setting can be lowered to make the game less hardware intensive on older or lower spec’d smartphones. This will help preserve battery life as well.
The game is compatible with both Wi-Fi and mobile data connections. You can play the single-player modes without an internet connection.
Dragon Ball Legends gameplay: How does it play?
For obvious reasons, fighting games don’t translate well to mobile devices, where precise button mashing and timing are essential for success.
However, thanks to the simplification of controls, Dragon Ball Legends can be played with a single finger. Simple taps launch basic attacks, and swipes allow you to avoid or block enemy attacks.
Dragon Ball Legends employs a card battle system to facilitate its more intricate attacks and combos. During battle, four cards randomly appear and refill. Each has a unique attack whose power and cost to your fighter’s stamina vary. Some of the cards represent extremely potent special moves, and you can chain them together to create impressive combos.
In-game combat utilizes random card draws, with each playable character having their own unique deck.
We were told that all of the characters from the Dragon Ball universe would be playable at some point in the game. Later on, you can add to the initial starter set with characters you’ve earned or purchased.
Dragon Ball Legends release date
The mobile version of Dragon Ball Legends is scheduled for a summer release on iOS and Android. The exact date of release has not been announced as of yet.
You can sign up for updates on the app’s release date in the Apple App Store or the Google Play store, depending on the type of device you use.
Before the game’s official release, Bandai Namco is letting players test it out in a closed beta. However, the application deadline has been extended to Tuesday, March 27 at 2am. In addition, it’s an Android-only feature. Read this to learn more.
Dragon Ball Legends price: How much will it cost?
As a free-to-play title, Dragon Ball Legends offers a top-notch gaming experience without the need to shell out any cash.
However, character packs and other downloadable content will be available for real-world purchase via in-app purchases.
According to Pocket-lint’s sources, a large portion of the game’s content will be accessible once purchased.
What effect does Google Cloud Platform have on Dragon Ball Legends?
Bandai Namco has decided to use Google’s Cloud Platform to host fights and match players around the world for its real-time fighting game. This will create a truly global game where players from all over the world can compete against one another with minimal lag.
Due to the prevalence of local and regional servers in most PVP mobile games, players are typically limited to facing off against those in the same general geographic area. The Cloud Platform, however, will ensure that all matches take place on the same servers, effectively making the game a global phenomenon.
In addition, in most other PvP games, the player is not the focus of the advertisement but rather the information about other players. Dragon Ball Legends is guaranteed to have constant player vs. player combat, according to Namco Bandai.
Google has spent tens of billions of dollars laying cables across the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, as well as many stretching across continents, to keep latency to a minimum.
The majority of the data is still transferred via extremely fast wiring, even if you’re playing via Wi-Fi or a mobile connection.
The game will feature the same cast as the main Dragon Ball series, with each player controlling a team of three fighters tasked with eliminating their opponents.
