Right before the last episode of Dragon Ball Super, Bandai Namco announces a new card-based Dragon Ball mobile game.
Keen on tapping the huge mobile games market with one of its most valuable properties, Bandai Namco today announced Dragon Ball Legends, a new "one finger card action battle" game that's poised to rake in tons of revenue with gacha-style purchases. The newly minted trailer shows a fantastic-looking thrillride of a game, but it remains to be seen if these are QTE or cutscene-style sequences, especially given gamers will actually play with a single finger.
Dragon Ball Legends (not to be confused with the old-school Dragon Ball Z Legends from the PS1 era) will sport a brand new original character designed by Akira Toriyama and feature global player-versus-player action and touts that gamers will be able to challenge anyone at any time. "Get ready for an exhilarating super-HD action-fighting game with simple and intuitive controls! Experience epic battles right on your smartphone and worldwide PvP," reads an official description.
The new mobile game will roll out Summer 2018 on iOS and Android.
