Specific Characters in Customization: Character Customation

In Customization you can edit the characters to your liking. You can alter their name, change the colour of their clothes and pick and choose which skills you want to learn and have equipped. The custom cards also display other information such as how many Dragon Balls that character has, their total Battle Points and their EXP gauge.

[edit] Modes

SDBZ Modes 00.jpg

[edit] Original

SDBZ Modes 01.jpg

This is the mode that mirrors the original Super Dragon Ball Z arcade game. In this mode you have to fight your way through 7 battles until you reach the final battle with Perfect Cell. The opponents you face before you reach Cell are random. Each time you defeat an opponent you will be rewarded with Battle Points and experience to help level up your character as well as a Dragon Ball.

[edit] Training

SDBZ Modes 02.jpg

This is a basic training mode where you can practice moves for any of the characters against a stationary opponent. It will also display the damage you are inflicting with each attack that hits.

[edit] Versus

SDBZ Modes 03.jpg

As one would expect from a fighting game, there is a 2-player Versus mode. In this mode all the characters currently unlocked are available and it is possible to play as the same character due to the alternate colours. There is also the option to have a handicap put on.

[edit] Z Survivor

SDBZ Modes 04.jpg

Z Survivor works like the Original except for the battles are limitless. Each time you defeat an opponent the next one will be slightly more difficult. Also, your characters health is not replenished after each battle, the game ends when you are defeated. Each time you defeat a character you are rewarded with Battle Points and a chance to win something on the Bonus Roulette Wheel. The prizes are:

  • Dragon Balls
  • Attack Up
  • Ultimate Gauge Healing
  • Defense Up
  • Health Points Up
  • EXP Bonus
  • Battle Points Bonus
