What's new in gameplay? For the fourth offshoot of the Budokai Tenkaichi games, the development team would like to give more options for tactics and combat strategies. In addition to well-known techniques such as Dragon Dash They have, among other things, added four new skills:

  • Revenge counter: This new ability lets you deliver a counterattack the moment you take a hit yourself.
  • Short sprint: The basic movement speed will be higher than in previous titles. The short sprint allows you to perform more complex maneuvers.
  • Super perception: This lets you counter before the enemy attack has even landed.
  • Disappearing Attack: The fourth new skill gives you the ability to appear and attack directly in front of a distant enemy.

When Dragon Ball: Sparking! ZERO will be released is currently unknown. At the moment, however, the Easter sale is running on Steam, and there will definitely be one or two suitable games to pass the time until the release. Among other things, one of the games that Gronkh made great is currently available for cheaper.
