DRAGON BALL FighterZ: Everything you need to know!
Ascend to the next level with the action fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ when it arrives later this week on January 26th. Get a quick recap with our handy guide while you wait.
What is DRAGON BALL FighterZ?
Dragon Ball FighterZ is a new action fighting game from Bandai Namco and Arc System works (who have previously worked on the Guilty Gear series). Players will be able to enjoy a brand new Story mode which will add an original story and bring newcomers to the game such as the mysterious Android 21 who has her own secrets. Story mode consists of 3 story arcs with different characters for each one. One has you in the shoes of Goku, another puts you in control of Frieza, and the last one gives you control of Androids 18 and 21. Events take place after Dragon Ball Z and are focused around the Dragon Ball Super series (though if you've not seen that you don't have to worry as the game has an original story).
If you've ever wanted to be thrust into the world of the anime then Dragon Ball FighterZ is the perfect choice for you as it has the visual style and fast paced action that fans have come to expect. You will pick from a set of 3 characters to do battle with in 3v3 games (much like Marvel vs Capcom), each with their own unique set of moves and strengths. There will be a total of 24 characters playable at launch, with 8 more characters coming later with the game's Season Pass. These include fan favourites such as Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Cell, Frieza and a couple new faces from Dragon Ball Super like Hit, Goku Black or Beerus. There will even be a few variants of each character, such as SSGSS Goku and SSGSS Vegeta - which will be unlocked Early if you pre-order.
Expect a number of Multiplayer Modes to do battle with, from ranked modes to casual arena matches that will test your skills in battle. Like Dragon Ball Xenoverse players will start out in a lobby with other players (or solo) and from there you're given a choice of activities. The game also features loot boxes, however they cannot be obtained using real world currency and are purchased using in-game credits that you can get from completing matches.
If you're a fan of fast paced fighting games, Dragon Ball or anime then you'll find plenty of fun to be had with the easy to pickup and play mechanics of Dragon Ball FighterZ which caters to newcomers and veterans alike. Pre-order Dragon Ball FighterZ today and be ready to go at launch this Friday!
