This is the Dragon Ball I’ve been wanting since my childhood. I have been an avid fan of the series since day one, and I’ve always wanted to explore that world for myself. Fighting games don’t tend to have that longevity or story telling like a true RPG does. Bandai Namco has commiserated and unveiled their new RPG for Nintendo 3DS, Dragon Ball Fusions!
Dragon Ball Fusions tells a completely original story of two boys who make a wish and are then transported to a place where all the worlds in the Dragon Ball universe are fused. Characters from every saga appear and work together for a common goal. Plus, Fusions is meant to be fully customizable, in that, you could create your own character out of Earthlings, Saiyans, Offworlders, and Aliens. Now, for all those that do love the fighting games they will have a Multiplayer Battle Mode!
If this game had come out when I was a kid, I don’t know if my parents could’ve taken the game away from me. Now that I’m an adult, I’m not sure if my wife will be able to pry it from my hands when Dragon Ball Fusions comes out for Nintendo 3DS on December 13, 2016!
