Dragon Ball FighterZ release date revealed

Fighters have had a few ups and downs over the past two years, but next year is aiming to kick things off with a Kamehameha. Dragon Ball FighterZ, the latest 2D iteration and adaptation of the popular anime, is on its way from famed fighting game studio Arc System Works, and it’s launching sooner than you can get over your new years hangover. The ultra stylish, ultra fast fighter is out on January 26th, and some new details about its three different versions have be revealed.

As with most games, Dragon Ball FighterZ isn’t going to be immune from the allure of DLC. As a result, there are three different versions that will be on sale when the game launches next year. The standard package will just be the core title with no frills attached. The FighterZ edition will bundle eight new fighters into the fold as post launch content, while a special Ultimate Edition includes that and some exclusive voices and music straight from the show.

The release date also allowed for Bandai Namco to detail some more specifics around the campaign, which is sounding better each time we hear about it. It’s already known that it’s going to explore an alternate timeline with some new characters, but it seems you won’t be getting the tale from one perspective. Instead, the story will be broken up into three parts – each telling the narrative from a different character perspective. And hopefully filling in the blanks where needed.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is looking like a deeply complex and engrossing fighter, but just its attention to its source material has me salivating at the chance to play it again. Even if I’m likely to get turned into chocolate and gobbled right up every time.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

    • Damn. Even though it’s a bit cheaper on Steam, R850 is a hard “bean” to swallow…

      It already loses browny points for having different options to buy. It’s like a COD game.

        See, AAA developers weeps tears of poverty. Claiming games still costs $60 and that the price hasn’t increased since forever. Well these days more and more $60 dollars only gets your foot in the door. If you want more content it’ll be $94. If you want the whole kebab it’ll be $110. That’s almost double $60.

      They’re pushing away so many potential customers with this bullshit (including me).

    Such a pitty…really had high hopes for this. Almost hopes this crashes and burns just to at least show the devs/publishers that shit like this wont be stood for…but you know what, it won’t. People will buy it, it will sell well, and this practice will continue to get worse and worse until buying a full game will be the cost of your rent. At least when they release the Switch version it will probably be the complete edition…
