However, as we all know, enemies always start out stronger than Goku himself. So in order to defeat them, he needs the support of his friend. That's why their role in this game will be just as much important as their role in the original story.

In this trailer, Bandai Namco Entertainment is going into details about the skills, play styles of some playable characters and support characters. You can watch the video just right below.

The support characters in this video are Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, and Chiaotzu. According to what they reveal, players can have up to 2 support characters to assist them at a time. Each of them has their own unique abilities that can help you in different ways. Krillin can use the Solar Flare to blind and stun enemies in a certain range. He can also use Destructo Disc that will track the enemy and is easy to use. Yamcha can hold an enemy while dealing damage to them using the Sprit Ball. He also has another ability to taunt enemies to distract them from you. Tien can use Solar Flare too, but he is also a serious damage dealer with his Tri-Beam Attack. Chiaotzu can use telekinesis to hold an enemy like Yamcha, but he can do that for a much longer duration.

Supports characters can also join melee combats with players to make combos or launch a rain of  Ki Blasts or heal the player.

As for playable characters, the trailer reveals that players can control other Dragon Ball characters apart from Goku. These characters will not only take part in combats but on the field as well to do side quests, interact with other characters, or travel around the world.

Let first start off with Gohan, son of Goku. Gohan is a highly skilled hand-to-hand combatant. He mostly uses close-range combos to drop enemies' health and then finish them off with a Ki Blast.

The next one is Piccolo. Piccolo has a decent amount of health and high defense against Ki attacks. He can use Explosive Wave, which will blast all enemies around him. Needless to say, this skill is very helpful when you are facing multiple enemies. Finally, we cannot speak of Piccolo without mentioning his signature skill Beam Cannon, which is an insanely powerful move.

Vegeta prefers using Ki Blast related attacks such as Multiple Energy Blast, a skill that pour a rain of Ki Blast on an enemy. This skill is strong in one on one combats as well as taking down several enemies that are grouping up together.
