Some time next week, Bandai Namco will reveal two new playable characters for Dragon Ball FighterZ on the next episode of IGN’s “Next Big Game.” The series, if you’re unfamiliar, is part of IGN’s Facebook content, and each episode highlights a new and upcoming game. In the latest episode on Star Wars Battlefront II, it was teased that next week’s episode will be on the upcoming Dragon Ball fighter and will unveil two new characters.
While there hasn’t been any confirmation of when the next episode will go live, the last two have aired on Mondays, and you can always keep on eye on IGN’s social media channels for more information.
For more information Dragon Ball FighterZ, make sure to check out our preview on the game from this past E3:
Since it is a Dragon Ball game, there’s also a big focus on mobility. By hitting the right trigger, players can use a special homing dash that’ll avoid Ki attacks. That’s not all, as they can also do a warp attack called Vanish that has players teleport behind their opponent and land an attack. That costs a guage of energy, though, so it’s important that these special moves are used in moderation.
The fighting in Dragon Ball FighterZ is just as fun as it looks. The combat is instantly accessible to anyone that has played a fighting game, but there’s enough unique systems in play that competitive players will have to spend plenty of time learning the ins and outs. Going off of Arc System Works’ track record, this isn’t a game that Dragon Ball fans will want to miss out on.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is slated to release on January 26, 2018.
