Well, this one was unexpected…
I am a massive fan of Dragon Ball Z so of course, I will be buying this game. I love the Xenoverse franchise don’t get me wrong but this game looks closer to Budokai than anything we’ve seen in the past six years.
Aside from 1-on-1, we will also get to partake in 3-on-3 brawls. It appears the character pool goes all the way through the Buu Saga, with the inclusion of at least the Return of Frieza movie. The gameplay trailer features our favorite heroes rocking their sexy gold hair. Everything looks beautifully realized and completely bonkers–just how it should be. The game is also a 2D fighter which deviates from recent releases that opt to go in the 3D route. Personally, I prefer the 2D fighters, simply because it gives me one less thing to worry about.
We obviously haven’t seen a lot, but the footage we got at least gives off a bit of that Marvel vs. Capcom-vibe. And, well, that’s great. Modes and roster will really make or break this game. A closed beta is set to hit PS4 and Xbox One before the end of summer 2017.
We did not hear anything about a story mode, so fingers are crossed
Dragon Ball FighterZ is slated for a 2018 release. My guess would be around April
