7 players will play as civilians of a city in the throes of destruction. The city is doomed, their only escape being embodied by a time capsule to start. They will have to redouble their ingenuity and use objects found in the field To escape to the super villain – also controlled by a player – who has a blast destroying the environment, determined to prevent survivors from fleeing.
The more civilians the villain absorbs, the more powerful he is. At launch, only Cell, Freezer et Buu will be available, while civilians will be customizable at will.
