You can expect a giant roster of charming characters to collect, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and skills. A big part of the experience is combining members of your roster to create new and more powerful variants. Many of the heroes will be instantly familiar to fans of Game of Dice, as Hero Ball Z is something of a spinoff.

As you continue to progress, you'll evolve your skills and learn to strategically place heroes for maximum efficiency. The sheer number of enemies on screen at once adds to the tension and thrill of combat. And speaking of the enemies, there are a ton of different types to take on, which keeps each battle feeling varied and exciting.
