Dragon Ball FighterZ - 1/26/18

This was announced back at Microsoft's E3 press conference, but I figured i'd create it's own thread for the game. Not sure how many people here are interested, but i'm jazzed about it. Heck, I haven't even been able to watch much of Dragon Ball Super, but DBZ will always be a part of my childhood so i'm excited for this.

I haven't played a Dragon Ball game since one of the Budokai games on PS2, but the gameplay and art on this look pretty damn amazing to me.

E3 Trailer:



Story Trailer:



Character reveal trailers have been coming out slowly, with Kid Buu today. I was trying to find a good list of all confirmed characters so far, hopefully this one is up to date:

Not like we've had a great DBZ game in like ever almost, feels like it. Budokai was trash. But this game is by the dudes that do the Guilty Gear games. So this will actually have damn good gameplay in it. Those dudes know how to make a 2D fighting game.

Re: Dragon Ball FighterZ - 1/26/18

This looks great. I'd also like to see Muten Roshi, Piccolo Daimao (Piccolo alternate), Saiyaman (Gohan alternate), Monaka (joke character), and maybe General Blue or something.

The game is amazing. Except all the online lobbies are full and you're forced to join a lobby for the main menu.

Playing through the tutorial in the beta is what sold me on the game. I found the game to be much more accessable and a lot less compicated than I assumed it would be.

I mainly did the Tutorials to get more of a grasp of the specific System Mechanics of the game, as it is similar to many Team-Based Fighting Games I've played over the years but a little different in many regards.

I finished all the Character Combo Trials last night. Haven't figured out my team yet but I'm really enjoying Goku Black.

Re: Dragon Ball FighterZ - 1/26/18

After putting 13-15 hours into Story Mode, I finally beat it and unlocked Android 21. It got incredibly repetitive but it was the only way to unlock her if you didn't buy the Season Pass.

Haven't tried out the most recent DLC Characters yet (Base Goku & Vegeta)

Cooler is next on the DLC. Looks interesting
