Dragon Ball: Shin Budokai - Crossed Paths is a game for the PlayStation 3 And 4 and PlayStation Vita.

Fighting Gameplay[]

The fighting style in this game is similar to Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 in basic fighting and flight, but borrows heavily from Budokai Tenkaichi 3 for combo making (like, to use the combo Ki Kombo, use Triangle, X, Triangle seven times, X, and Circle, in that order). "Blast 1" are moves that either paralyze the opponent, make the opponent unable to attack you, or the ability to use Ultimate Attacks/Transformation (like Goku (Saiyan Saga) (Base)'s "Give Me Your Energy!" for "Spirit Bomb", or Cell's "Aha! I Found You!" to transform into his Semi-Perfect and Perfect Forms). "Blast 2" attacks are standard use attacks, whether ki-based (Goku's "Kamehameha") or physical-based (Android 17's "Android Triangle").

Team Attacks, like it's name suggests, is only for Team Battles. Team Attacks, like Blast 2s, can be ki-based (Goku (Saiyan Saga) (Base)/Krillin's "Team Spirit Bomb"), or physical-based (Gogeta (Super Saiyan)/Gotenks (Super Saiyan)'s "Father-Son Buu-Buu Volleyball"). Ultimate Attacks are very powerful, and can be ki-based (Gogeta (Super Saiyan)'s "Stardust Breaker") or physical-based (Gohan (Elder Kai's Unlock Potential)'s "Burst Rush"). Some characters have unique abilities, when, combined with certain circumstances (Goku's "Zenkai" ability/"Senzu Bean" Blast 1), can make a very powerful opponent.

Game Modes[]

Story Mode[]

Play as any character you want, and retell the story of Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and Dragon Ball GT!

Depending on the character you choose, you get to play as them in battles, and other extra tasks. This system is similar to the systems found in Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World (the extra tasks system), Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 (the overworld system), Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 (the story mode system), and Dragon Ball: Burst Limit (the drama pieces (i.e. Risking It All For A Friend)). Your story can be the same as the character's story, or, you can drift off of the storyline into alternate endings and what-if scenarios. You can find the stories here.

Ultimate Battle[]

Become the very best fighter!


Fight off as many people as possible before you get K.O.'d!

Returning from Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3. Play as any character you choose, and last as long as you can while fighting many characters in the category they're in.

If you lose, you lose all of the Zeni you placed in.

Evolution Z Concept[]

Bulma explains the concept of Evolution Z!

"Evolution Z are power-ups you can use on a character to improve five qualities: Speed, Ki, Attack, Defense, and Stamina & Health, each critical to winning a battle. Each Evolution Z Potara has a certain amount of points, which determine how many more Potara you can add to your character. Every character has a varied point limit, some being unbelievably low, or being incredibly high. Choose your Potara wisely! Do you want me to go more in-depth with any specific Potara?"


"Speed Potara increase your character's speed, and speed-up the acceleration process to your character's top speed."


"Ki Potara increase how much ki your character can release, and how powerful your character's basic ki, ki-based Blast 1 & 2, and ki-based Ultimate Attacks are. Androids can only use specific ki Potara, though."


"Attack Potara increase how much attack-power your character has, and how powerful your character's physical-based Blast 1 & 2, and physical Ultimate Attacks are."


"Defense Potara decrease how much damage you take, increase how much blocking power you have, and increase the damage you can do in a counter-attack."


"Stamina & Health Potara decrease the rest time needed after taking too many blasts, and increase your character's total health."

Character Customization[]

Add Evolution Z items to your characters!

To make your character stronger, you can add on Evolution Z Potara to characters.
