Sparking Zero details mechanics and fighters



As promised, Bandai Namco released 13 minutes of gameplay from Dragon Ball: Sparking Zero, the new chapter in the beloved “Budokai Tenkaichi” franchise. The video reveals details of recently revealed playable characters and provides an in-depth look at fighting mechanics.

The content was presented by the game's director, Jun Furutani. First, it shows a trailer with a full fight between Goku and Vegeta. The eternal rivals fight an epic battle, bringing nostalgic features for Budokai Tenkaichi fans, as well as new mechanics.

Furutani explains that the team at developer Spike Chunsoft wanted to maintain the essence of the franchise. With this, players can expect the returns of “Impact Action”, which involves disputes over ki skills (when two fighters launch skills at the same time — the example in the video is a clash between a Kamehameha and a Galick Ho), the “Dragon Dash”, a high-speed movement, and the counterattack system.

As for the new mechanics, the director talks about the addition of some elements. The first is a speed boost to your dashes, to attack or dodge your opponent's skills. Then, we have the “Skill Counts”, which are points earned as the combat progresses. You can spend them to perform actions such as “Revenge Counter”, a counterattack used even when you are suffering blows from your opponent, or “Super Perception”, which allows you to counter ki waves (Kamehameha, Galick Ho, etc. .) With the hands.
