Update (Fri 22nd Jul, 2022): We've now got an official date for Dragon Ball: The Breakers, along with a new trailer! The game will be available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on October 14th, 2022.
Original story (Tue 16th Nov, 2021): Bandai Namco Europe has just announced a brand new Dragon Ball game in the form of Dragon Ball: The Breakers.
As highlighted by @wario64 over on Twitter, this new title will see a release across multiple platforms and features asymmetrical multiplayer Dragon Ball action.
According to Bandai Namco Europe's official web page, Dragon Ball: The Breakers will see a closed beta in the coming months, although this will be limited to PC, in order to let players get their hands on what the game has to offer.
The official press release on the site gives a little more background into what we can expect from this one:
"Taking place in the DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE universe, DRAGON BALL: THE BREAKERS allows you to play as one of the iconic rivals of the franchise, the “Raider” , or one of the seven “Survivors” with no super powers. The Raider will have to use its overwhelming power to eliminate the ”Survivors”.
These regular civilians have been caught in a “Temporal Seam”, trapping them in a place where space and time are in disarray, and will have to cooperate in order to push back the Raider and escape using the Super Time Machine. Players can also utilize various items on the field and try escaping the field strategically."

Looking forward to some all-new Dragon Ball action? Let us know in the comments.
Could be interesting, its the sort of thing I'd probably play a lot of if it was on gamepass or part of, say, Xenoverse 3.
Yamcha dies first..
What next, battle royale?
...doubt anybody, from any platform, wanted something like this from db ip.
Welp. it better have crossplay an be either f2p or dirt cheap cause I can't see people eating this up.
@PhhhCough And then Krillen dies, is revived, dies, is revived, and then dies again.
Q) Looking forward to some all-new Dragon Ball action?
A) Whilst I love the unique concept for a Dragon Ball game, my lack of online on my Xbox Series X kind of derails any plans to get this sort of game. It's a shame as it looks neat and ties into Xenoverse 2 from what I hear... it does tempt me to boot Xenoverse 2 back up and for the first time on my Xbox Series X.
@Nalverus I have to agree. There's no reason Bandai Namco couldn't bring out a successful, fun and viable alternative to Dead by Daylight... but attaching the Dragon Ball licence to it seems incredibly ill-conceived. Who wants to play as powerless, helpless people in a Dragon Ball game? Not me, that's for sure.
@dsar9012 that was my exact reaction too. This is not what I expected for a Dragon Ball game
Unless its cross platform, dirt cheap or free to play it probably won't be much of a hit. These kinds of games typically only reach a small group of people for so long. If it does strive it will be because of the Dragonball name alone.
