Dragon Ball Advanced Adventure - Gameplay
Let's start the adventure


The game is mainly based on the story mode. Goku after meeting Bulma, goes on the adventure to find the Dragon Balls. The game generally keeps to the main storyline from manga and anime, but of course the player will take part in several events, which in the original story didn't take place. Not all events were also included in the game. The main missing is the Piccolo Junior storyline.
