Just last week, news broke of the latest Dragon Ball game, Dragon Ball: Tap Battle! Namco Bandai quickly followed up on March 26th by releasing the game to Android devices and releasing the first Dragon Ball Tap Battle Trailer. Now, Saiyan Island’s TheGameTagerZ has gotten his hands on the game and recorded a 28 minute gameplay video! This is in addition to a Dragon Ball Tap Battle all special attacks video, check them out below!

So how does Dragon Ball Tap Battle work? Pretty simple – just tap away on the mobile screen! Tap to where you want to go and tap on the opponent to fight. Around the opponents legs is a mark that will be of different colors. At close range, it will be red, which means you can tap for hand-to-hand combat. At a mid-range, the mark will be yellow, so tap for ki blasts. There are two special attacks per character, both of which are activated when at a far distance. There first can be executed by tapping on the opponent when a a purple mark is shown. This depletes one bar of energy for you as the player when pulled off. For the second special attack, tap on your character icon to go into a burst-like mode, and then on the opponent. This depletes two bars of energy.

Dragon Ball Tap Battle is now available for Android 2.3 devices in Japan for a price of 350 Japanese yen (about $3.50 USD). A iOS version is planned for the future.

    If they make another DBZ game with Tenkaichi 3 gameplay and Tenkaichi 2 story mode that will be the best game ever

  • SirAuron14

    I cant wait to play this when it comes out ios. hope it comes to the US

  • Felipe

    Just wait, it will not take too long for some genius to rip these Sprites and make MUGEN chars with them.

  • Felipe

    Most of the sound-effects aren’t from Dragon Ball, LOL….still a cool game though.

  • Vash bane

    that’s what I was thinking too

  • Felipe

    Okay, here’s a very long post where i show my opinion on how the next DBZ game should be, sorry if i end up wasting your time.

    Only Tenkaichi 3 Gameplay and Tenkaichi 2 Story Mode will not be a really jaw-dropping thing. I mean…a next-gen game with those cutscenes where characters are just stand, talking, fighting and then dying (always the same animation) would be boring. It’s acceptable for a PS2 game, but not for a PS3/360 (or maybe PS4/720).

    The reason for that “i’ll need to play the same old Story all over again? -__-” thing is due to the developers (Spike/Dimps) never getting it right. People get bored because the game makes it boring…do you want a proof? Try watching the Saiyan Saga episodes for example (mostly Goku/Piccollo vs Raditz and Goku vs Vegeta); even if you pratically “know” what will happen, it’s still gonna be epic…you will have a nostalgic “feeling”. Now play those parts on Spike DBZ games…..B-O-R-I-N-G. It’s always the same thing (talk, fight, break things to find Dragon Balls, spam Kamehameha to defeat Oozaru Vegeta, talk, end), that emotion doesn’t exist, and you end up saying “it’s nothing like the Anime”.

    The closest they could get to this “feeling” was with Ultimate Tenkaichi’s “Boss Battles”, but the too limited Gameplay made it look awful.

    The next console game needs to have a innovative and completely THIRD PERSON (Tenkaichi) gameplay, ACTUAL mechanics and not those glitchy PS2-era things, ANIME CELL-SHADED graphics (seriously, i hate that plastic doll 3D thing), ANIME Stages (Naruto Storm-like), revised character models, faces and animations (after some researching and “hacking” in recent games data, i discovered that they use models and animations from the NINTENDO/PS1 era!!! Can you believe on that?), LIBERTY and FLUIDNESS in the combats, MORE ON GROUND FIGHTS, and not focus only in the air, MORE FIGHTERS IN THE SCREEN, BETTER AURAS, BLASTS AND EXPLOSIONS (my God, the BT3 ones are 10x better than those brurry/dust things from recent games), revised Tournament Modes…..and finally…a INTERACTIVE and immersive Story Mode, which is faithful to the Anime, but also unique, mainly in the case of the Boss Battles and QTE (Naruto Storm taken as a example again).

    To finish, the good old “What If” chapters. Do you guys remember that “What If” chapter in BT3 where the Saiyans (Vegeta, Bardock, Fasha and King Vegeta were playable) discovered the plans of Frieza and attacked his spaceship? For me, it was the best chapter of the game, perfectly done, in everything. Now imagine that Story ported to a Next-Gen game, with a interactive battlefield and epic cutscenes? (imagine you and other characters, that you could switch, fighting hordes of Frieza’s Soldiers in the middle of the space, then some QTE showing a chaotic struggle between Saiyan and Frieza’s army, then the Emperor of the Universe appears as the Final Boss,in his Final Form, and maybe Bardock transforms into SSJ, gets the power of all Saiyans and after the last QTE, everything ends with a big explosion, and Frieza is desintegrated……..wouldn’t it be epic?).

    tell them to do the same in anime krillains attack he used on sieberment was ment to be blue as the technique stated of to that of kamehameha, dosent help that dbwiki has fans imput on false attacks mostly created by animation errors such as gohans yellow kamehameha on the caseing around buu that isnt a”electric kamehameha” it was a miss colourd super kamehameha.
