A new Dragon Ball game is coming to iOS and Android devices. Bandai Namco unveiled Dragon Ball Legends during a presentation at this year's Game Developers Conference, and now the publisher has shared the first trailer for the upcoming mobile fighting game.

The video, embedded below, showcases the simple but flashy battle system of the new mobile Dragon Ball game. Like the recently released Dragon Ball FighterZ, Legends is a three-on-three fighting game featuring a number of recognizable characters from the series, including Goku, Frieza, Piccolo, Nappa, Vegeta, and Pan, along with an entirely new character designed by Dragon Ball creator, Akira Toriyama.

To tailor the game for mobile devices, Dragon Ball Legends features a card-based interface. Different attacks are performed by tapping on the appropriate cards at the bottom of the screen, and combos can be unleashed by tapping the cards consecutively. The game also offers online PvP battles against other players around the world. Bandai Namco demonstrated an online match during its GDC presentation, which you can watch in the video at the top of this story.

Bandai Namco hasn't announced a release date for Dragon Ball Legends, but the game is slated to arrive this summer. In the meantime, players can pre-register for it on the official Dragon Ball Legends website. As an added incentive to sign up, Bandai Namco will give away different in-game items depending on how many players pre-register.

Ahead of the game's launch, Android users will have a chance to participate in two exclusive closed beta tests for Dragon Ball Legends. The first kicks off early next month, on April 6, with the second following a week later on April 13. Registration for the beta is open now until March 26. If you're interested in taking part, you can sign up here, although not everyone who applies will be selected.

The new character looks like Gohan if he grew his hair out.

@Lord_Sesshy: That's true but if you watch the new movie trailer it he looks like the new villain as I stated in my comment.

@the_true_majin: It is the new villain from the new Dragon Ball Super Movie. The trailer doesn't reveal much though.

Here is a still image of the villain:

As a long-time fan I'm always glad to see new installments in the Dragon Ball franchise but after Dragon Ball FighterZ I am skeptical that any new game will be even close .

@the_true_majin: Totally different armor, so I don't think so.
