Dragon Ball Fusions Update Adds A New Stage and Online Play for the Japanese Release

Category: Uncategorized

dragon-ball-fusions

Dragon Ball Fusions doesn’t come out in English until later this year, but the Japanese release, which has been out since last August, recently received an update that adds the Space-Time Radar stage, along with online battles and rankings.

The new stage uses Wi-Fi signals to create tears in space and time that open up encounters with rare characters and offer chances to recruit them onto your team.

The online mode is fairly straightforward – you take your team and battle others online, while working your way up the national rankings.

Dragon Ball Fusions comes out for the 3DS on December 13 in North America and this February in Europe.

From now until October 31, 3DS owners can get Darkrai by entering the code “Darkrai20” into their copy of Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Omega Ruby, X or Y.

Since this Darkrai is identical to the ones from the previous giveaways, if you already received one then, you will not be able to redeem this one.
