Game Informer isn’t the only place with new Dragon Ball FighterZ information! The latest issue of V-Jump has mot information on the upcoming fighting game’s Story Mode. It seems that there will be some RPG elements integrated into the mode!

Shoryuken graciously provided information from the print magazine for all of us to enjoy. Here are some tidbits from their article:

V-Jump reveals that the Story Mode is actually split into three separate scenarios. The main scenario has you following Goku and the Z-Warriors, the second has you taking over Freeza’s body while the final scenario has the players linking up with Android 18. The Freeza scenario looks to be the dedicated “gag” scenario, while Android 18’s scenario has her exploring “hidden memories” about her past. This will no doubt delve into how she and 17 met Dr. Gero and maybe her link to the mysterious Android 21.

As for what you do in Story Mode, players hop around a world map, defeating enemies and gaining XP as you go. You can use XP to either unlock special Story Mode only skills or simply to level your characters up to the highest point. If you use certain characters for long enough, you can start to listen in on their inner thoughts and hear what they’re really thinking.

Shoryuken also states that Dragon Ball FighterZ’s plot will heavily break the fourth wall, as the players directly control the Z Fighters throughout these scenarios. Make sure to check their full article for all of the details.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will release in February 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
