A new Dragon Ball is one of the last things most people expected to see at Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference. But there it was… Dragon Ball Fighter Z… a new 2D fighting game from Bandai Namco and Arc System Works:
Dragon Ball Fighter Z gives fans of all skill levels the opportunity to feel like their favorite Dragon Ball character. Featuring 3 vs 3 battle mechanics, new and seasoned players are sure to experience the epic scope of Dragon Ball as they select their three-character team to take into battle. The game also encourages players to train and master more than one fighter and style, delivering richer gameplay and motivation to take down the competition.
“The Dragon Ball franchise is tailor suited for the fighting game genre, and Dragon Ball Fighter Z will be the next exciting addition to a long history of great fighting games,” said Eric Hartness, the Vice President of Marketing at Bandai Namco Entertainment America. “Arc System Works brings a pedigree and record of quality that fighting game fans can trust; with awesome visuals players might mistake as actual 2D animation from the famed Dragon Ball series.”
A Closed Beta for Dragon Ball Fighter Z will be available sometime this Summer, and the game will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in Early 2018.
