This weekend is the closed beta for Arc System Works’ upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ, and TMS is taking the game for a spin! Watch above as I lose spectacularly because traditional fighting games aren’t really my area of expertise, but I plan to enjoy myself while doing it!
I’ll do my best to show off as much of the game and its characters as possible, but let me know in the comments below (or in Twitch chat) if there’s anything specific you’d like to see.
“After the success of the Xenoverse series, it’s time to introduce a new classic 2D DRAGON BALL fighting game for this generation’s consoles. DRAGON BALL FighterZ is born from what makes the DRAGON BALL series so loved and famous: endless spectacular fights with its all powerful fighters. Partnering with Arc System Works, DRAGON BALL FighterZ maximizes high end Anime graphics and brings easy to learn but difficult to master fighting gameplay to audiences worldwide.”
The game leverages Arc System Works’ Guilty Gear experience to create a Dragon Ball game aimed specifically at fighting game fans first, while drawing Dragon Ball fans deeper into that genre. It’ll hit store shelves early in 2018, with the exact date still TBD.
