IDW Games has revealed the first licensed Dragon Ball Z board game it will produce in 2018: Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell. The licensing arrangement was announced by Toei Animation in May (see “IDW To Produce 'Dragon Ball Z' Games”).

Dragon Ball Z: Perfect Cell is a dice game which pits the Z-Fighters against the evil artificial life form Perfect Cell. Players take control of iconic Dragon Ball Z fighters who must work cooperatively to defeat Cell. Players roll dice to generate energy, then allocate their dice into attacks, helping other players, or buying upgrades. Cell will continuously generate new threats to heal himself, damage all the players, or block players from accessing upgrades.

The game is for 2 - 4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 30 -45 minutes. Release is planned for March. MSRP was not announced.

IDW plans to release a series of themed non-collectible board, tile-laying, and dice games based on the popular Dragon Ball Z property.
