Dragon Ball The Breakers

Bandai Namco and Dimps have just announced Dragon Ball: The Breakers, a new asymmetrical online multiplayer game. The title will launch for Switch and other platforms sometime in 2022.

Dragon Ball: The Breakers is set in the Dragon Ball Xenoverse universe and has fans playing as one of the iconic rivals of the franchise, the “Raider”, or one of the seven “Survivors” with no super powers. The Raider will need to use its power to eliminate the “Survivors”. These regular civilians have been caught in something known as a “Temporal Seam”, trapping them in a place where space and time are in disarray. They’ll need to cooperate in order to push back the Raider and escape using the Super Time Machine. An aspect of the game involves using items on the field and escaping the field strategically.

Dragon Ball FighterZ and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 have each surpassed eight million units in terms of total worldwide shipments and digital sales, Bandai Namco announced today. That applies to combined sales across all platforms.

Bandai Namco is celebrating the milestones with different activities for both games. Get the full rundown below, courtesy of Gematsu.

Jump Force is coming to an end, with Bandai Namco announcing that it will no longer make the game available for purchase. The base game, DLC, and virtual currency will be taken offline on February 7, 2022 at 5 PM PT and 8 PM ET. This applies to all versions of the game, including Switch.

Bandai Namco is also pulling the plug on online servers as of August 24, 2022. All single players content can still be accessed along with PVP battles (except for the Ranked Match mode).

Here’s some additional information:

Digimon Survive 2022

Bandai Namco has made it official that Digimon Survive has been delayed to 2022.

This was more or less expected given how there are only a couple of months left in the year. We also heard about the game being delayed back in July stemming from a report in Toei Animation’s financial report.

Here’s a message from producer Habu Kazumasa about Digimon Survive being moved to 2022:

Super Robot Wars 30 Ultraman

Bandai Namco shared the latest information on Super Robot Wars 30 today, including plans for DLC with Ultraman and more.

A second pack of DLC will feature Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans as well as Ultraman, it’s been announced. The former will include mecha and pilots while the latter will only have characters. The same DLC pack will also include the Super Robot Wars OG series with mecha and pilots. All of this content is planned for December.

Pac-Man 99 Warp & Warp

Bandai Namco is celebrating the latest milestone in Pac-Man 99 with a new Warp & Warp theme. If you have the game, look for this under the name “Namco Classic 7”. It is entirely free to download.

Since launch, Pac-Man has been downloaded over five million times, Bandai Namco also announced this week. We had previously heard that downloads had surpassed four million at the start of August.

My Friend Peppa Pig arrived on Switch yesterday. Check out the launch trailer and an overview for the game below.

Those using Caulifla (Super Saiyan 2) can hold down the fire button to boost the power of her Super Attack, Crush Canon. Bandai Namco says you can “then blast your foes with a Kikouha after firing off two savage Kidan using her Ultimate Attack, Crush Stream”.
