In the images we can see that there will be battles of up to three teams, making possible combinations and strategies with the fighters.
According to the producer Tomoko Hiroki, while recent Dragon Ball games have been produced in 3D, they chose a 2.5D aspect because there are some things that can only be done with that style. For example they will do some camera angles that can not be achieved in 2D.
