Gameplay

Virtually nothing changed from Buu's Fury prequel, although new features were added. A Button is for melee attacks, B is for energy blasts, L is to switch energy blasts, R is to block, B and R is to energy block. Select is to view the scouter, and Start is to go to the pause menu.

In the Scouter, you can view a map of your area and learn information about the people around you.

In the Pause Menu, you can use stat points you gain from levelling up to increase your Strength, Power, and Endurance. You can also use food items you gain from a Z-Mart or enemies and equip items you buy and find. For instance, early on in the game you will come across 1 Ton Armbands and 1 Ton Boots. Equip these and your speed decreases, but you gain more experience when fighting. You can also view your missions in your Journal.

Attacks include a regular KI Blast for everybody. Goku has the Instant Transmission Technique and Kamehameha Wave. Gohan has the Electric Kamehameha and the Masenko. Goten has the Energy Punch and the Kamekameha Wave. Trunks has the Burning Blast and Flame Kamehameha. Vegeta has the Final Flash and Big Bang. They all also have Super Saiyan abilities (minus Gohan after chapter 9).

Goku also has the ability to go Super Saiyan 3 (chapter 7+). Goten and Trunks also have the fusion option, and you can unlock the fusion option for Goku and Vegeta. Gohan also gains Mystic Powers, which makes him have Super Saiyan abilities in regular form, although you can't use the Super Saiyan technique anymore.
