Game Features
– Simple, Accessible Controls
The control system has been streamlined to work perfectly with modern touch interfaces.
The position of the directional pad can be adjusted freely, enabling players to switch between one-handed and two-handed play with a tap of the screen.
The combat system has also been reworked, allowing for one-tap battles as well as more complex play.

– The Tension System
During battle, you can select 'Psyche Up' to give your next attack some extra oomph!
The more you psyche a character up, the higher their tension will rise, until they finally reach an insane state known as super-high tension!

– Skill Points
Skill points are earned when your characters level up, and can be assigned to various skills in order to learn new spells and abilities.
This system allows you to perfectly tailor your team to your liking.

– Monster Teams
Certain monsters found in the field can be scouted for your monster team – if you're tough enough to beat them, that is!
Once assembled, your crack squad can take part in the fiercely contested tournaments held at the monster arena, and can even come to your aid in battle!

– The Alchemy Pot
Combine existing items to create entirely new ones!
Even the most unassuming objects could be ingredients for the greatest items of all!
Seek out the recipes hidden all over the world, and see if you can cook up something truly special!

– The Casino
Fans of the series will be pleased to learn that the casino is back, and fully-equipped for fun!
This time around, there are three exciting activities to enjoy: bingo, slot machines and roulette!
Just don't get so caught up in the action that you forget your adventure entirely!

Customer Reviews

I like the minor changes. 3DS Soon.

I played the original PS2 version, and I really like the small changes made to the game.

The "Auto-walk" is great so you're only moving the camera rather than constantly keeping the joystick forward with your finger.
"Benediction" is removed, and EXP Needed is added into the "attributes" menu.
Hero no longer turns Super Saiyan when in "Super High Tension"; kind of a bummer but it's alright, we still get the Magic Bikini.
The new Menu UI is great, easy, and the directional joystick is adjustable to the Left/Center/Right positions, and in size.
On iPad, I recommend joystick on the sides, and in Small; Center position for iPhone/Touch.
**SPOILER**For those who played the original, "Alchemy" is now instantaneous rather than walking endlessly.

These are just a few great changes.

That being said, Nintendo 3DS has released the Japanese Remake, and soon for NA. New story scenes, maybe missions, and PLAYABLE CHARACTERS. As of now, I only know of 2 characters, maybe they've added more.

I'm on my 3rd Run now, and despite the guides made for beating the game, how the characters ends up becoming is UP TO YOU. Choose your role!

An app update is coming soon!!

An update! I've been pretty much badgering their support. I finally think we might have a break through since they can't accept images.

Awesome game

I love this game, it's just like the PS2 Version, brings back so many memories, I'm so happy I can play the full game on my iPhone, there are a few differences that I wish was kept from the original, there is no voice acting in a Cut scene, just text and reading, 2nd I read that Hero no longer goes super saiyan when he is fully psyched up, that bit disappointed, I love that look special being a big DBZ fan, and a few other small changes here and there, other then that, I love the game and will continue to play it 😊

Maybe if there are any updates coming can make Hero go super saiyan again, that would be awesome, thank you 🙂
