Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is based on the manga and anime franchise Dragon Ball. The game promotes the release of the film Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, featuring the first video game appearance of Goku's Super Saiyan God form as well as the characters Beerus and Whis.

Battle of Z is a team fighting action title that lets up to eight players battle it out against one another in a gameplay and graphical style similar to those of Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale. The game can have up to four players in cooperative play, and lets players perform attacks together and heal one another. It also supports online multiplayer battles, and PS Vita ad-hoc connection. A multiplayer restriction in this game is that two players can not play on the same console; the developers say this is due to wanting a player having the best possible graphics in full screen. Battle of Z features over 70 characters, as well as team battles against giant characters such as Great Ape Vegeta, Great Ape Gohan, and Hirudegarn.
