Dragon Ball The Breakers update

Dragon Ball: The Breakers has received its next big update, bringing the game to version

The highlight here is support for Season 3 content, which you can find more details about here. A bunch of adjustments and fixes are included as well.

The full patch notes for the Dragon Ball: The Breakers version update are as follows:

Dragon Ball The Breakers Season 3 Ginyu Force

Bandai Namco and Dimps shared first details on Dragon Ball: The Breakers Season 3, which is going live next week and will feature Ginyu Force as a new Raider. Expect it to start on June 9, 2023.

Outside of the Ginyu Force, Dragon Ball: The Breakers will be offering “Dende” and “King Kai” Survivor Skins which will be available via TP Tokens in the in-game shop. New Dragon Tier rewards are planned as well, including the new Survivor Skin, “Fortuneteller Baba.” Finally, “Snowy Mountain” will be added as a new map.

Baten Kaitos III cancelled

Yasuyuki Honne, the director at Monolith Soft for the Baten Kaitos series, has again commented on Baten Kaitos III – which never released. He also once again confirmed that there were plans for a title on DS that was scrapped as well.

According to Honne, Baten Kaitos III was targeted for next-gen platforms – so if anything, it would have been on Wii and not GameCube. Unfortunately, things weren’t meant to be “due to Bandai Namco’s restructuring and budget review, as well as tri-Crescendo’s financial struggles”. Honne added that “Baten Kaitos is a complicated series with lots of circumstances involved.”

Pac-Man 99 online shutting down

Bandai Namco has announced that Pac-Man 99 is coming to an end, with the game’s online service planned to shut down later in the year and it’ll be delisted entirely. Your last chance to play the game will be on October 8, 2023.

Pac-Man 99 will still be playable offline and all downloadable content is still being available as planned after the shutdown date if previously purchased. That means players will continue to have access to extras like CPU Battle Mode.

Bandai Namco previously issued a statement about the state of Tales of Symphonia on Switch, apologising for the issues and promising that a patch to address them was in the works for the future. Today they have announced that the patch will be coming on May 18, and have provided some patch notes, which can be viewed below:

We Love Katamari Reroll + Royal Reverie frame rate resolution

Bandai Namco has shared more details about the technical side of We Love Katamari Reroll + Royal Reverie, including frame rate and resolution. This information comes from the official Japanese website.

When docked, the game is expected to run at 1080p. Portable mode for We Love Katamari Reroll + Royal Reverie should be the maximum resolution of 720. 

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and Dragon Ball FighterZ sales milestone

Bandai Namco announced today that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and Dragon Ball FighterZ have each surpassed cumulative shipments of ten million copies worldwide. That’s based on data collected across all platforms. It’s worth noting that both titles have set new sales records for Dragon Ball console games.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, which first released in 2016 and a year later in Switch, has the largest number of playable characters among current Dragon Ball console game titles, with up to 129 characters (including paid DLC). According to Bandai Namco, is still has “one million monthly active users, with many fans regularly playing the game.”

Bandai Namco has just dropped a release date and new trailer for the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Hero of Justice Pack 2. It’ll be out for everyone on May 11, 2023.

The upcoming DLC provides Orange Piccolo, Piccolo (Power Awakening), and Gohan (Beast) as playable characters. A new scenario based on the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie is also included.

SD Gundam Battle Alliance update 1.40

Bandai Namco has announced a new version 1.40 update for SD Gundam Battle Alliance that will be going live very soon. 

The update is highlighted by support for new paid DLC, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury Pack. Several other fixes are also planned.

The full patch notes for the SD Gundam Battle Alliance version 1.40 update are as follows:

The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan

Out of nowhere, Bandai Namco has announced and released a brand new version of The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan for Switch.
