Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z – Battle Mode Details, New Screenshots

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is the first game in the legendary series to allow up to eight players to play against each other online. The game will have four distinct battle modes – a normal battle, score battle, Battle Royal, and Dragon Ball grab! What’s the difference between each of these?

  • Normal Battle: This is a standard 4-on-4 battle. Each team is allotted with the ability to “Retry” a certain amount of times after members are defeated. The first team who drops to 0 in the “Retry” count loses the game!
  • Score Battle: This is a 4-on-4 battle. To reach the highest score possible, each team has to knockout as many people as possible from the other team in a certain amount of time.
  • Battle Royal: This is a free-for-all, where every man is for himself! Each player will have to knockout the others and reach the highest score possible. All 8 players will battle for the same and unique crown.
  • Dragon Ball Grab: 2 teams of 4 players will fight for the 7 Dragon Balls dispersed in the field! The first team who collects all of the Dragon Balls wins the game! If neither team manages to do that in the allotted time, the one having the highest number wins.

Also released are a batch of new screenshots! Well, some of them are new, the others are higher resolution versions of the ones released yesterday. The larger screenshot shown directly below is from the Dragon Ball Grab battle mode.
