Are you ready for the fight? Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming and today Bandai Namco have not only confirmed the earlier than anticipated release date, but a whole load more details regarding the story and characters.
So, release date time and Dragon Ball FighterZ will be dropping on to Xbox One, PS4 and PC come 26th January 2018. That’s a month earlier than was previously slated and will be great news to those Dragon Ball fans who have been holding out for FighterZ.
To accompany this release date, the pre-orders have now gone live and Bandai have detailed the different versions which will be available.
- The DRAGON BALL FIGHTERZ standard edition contains the base game.
- The DRAGON BALL FIGHTERZ – FighterZ Edition includes the game along with the FighterZ Pass which adds 8 new characters to the roster.
- The DRAGON BALL FIGHTERZ – Ultimate Edition contains the game and the FighterZ Pass and additional content such as the commentator Voice Pack and the long-awaited Anime Music pack. The Anime Music Pack has been requested by fans for years and will include 11 songs from the anime. Players will be able to fight to the sound of “CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA”, “WE GOTTA POWER”, and the most famous endings and background music!
The FighterZ Pass contains 8 additional mighty characters with their respective stamp, set of alternative colours and even Lobby Avatars.
If you like the sound of those editions, then getting a pre-order in will see an early unlock to both SSGSS Goku and SSGSS Vegeta along with 2 exclusive lobby avatars. All the pre-orders on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will receive exclusive early access to January’s OPEN BETA.
But it’s not all about the release date and different editions as Dragon Ball FighterZ is all about the fight. And those fights are all about strategy. In DRAGON BALL FighterZ, they are becoming more and more strategical with the arrival of two new heavyweights Nappa and Captain Ginyu. Captain Ginyu is a powerful character having the ability to switch himself with the opponent’s fighter lasting until the end of the fight. Nappa is a heavy type character using the Saibamen to attack the enemy. Using the Saibamen correctly could help Nappa gain time to charge energy or prepare a combo.
Furthermore, Story Mode should well surprise and delight fans with the LINK System allowing them to embody different characters, share their minds and even discuss with them while they live in the same body. Composed of three different parts, the story mode will allow players to experience three different perspectives each offering different details and secrets about the story. Players will first play the Super Warriors Arc from the perspective of the Saiyans, followed by the Super Villain Arc from the perspective of the enemies and finally the Android Arc from the perspective of the Androids. By taking part in different fighting combinations included in these 3 chapters, players will be able to level up their characters and get a full understanding of the amazing DRAGON BALL FighterZ scenario!
The story mode map will also surprise players by allowing tactical moves as you will have different options for their next destination. This strategical choice will have an impact on fighting abilities in future fights!
And finally, Bandai Namco have also release further details regarding the online modes, with interconnected match-making being the perfect place to test players’ skills. In the Circle Match mode, up to 8 players can enter into the room to fight against each other where up to 4 fights can happen simultaneously. The World Match mode will allow players to choose between casual and ranked matches.
For now, that will do on the Dragon Ball FighterZ front and you should be looking forward to the 26th Jan 2018 with huge interest. Should any further details surrounding the game arrive, we’ll be sure to let you know!
