Dragon Ball FighterZ Story Mode Detailed by Bandai Namco

New details have been revealed about the Dragon Ball FighterZ story mode. Bandai Namco announced today that players will link their minds with Goku, and will work together in order to find out what happened after “a group of warrior clones appeared” in the world. In total, there’ll be three story arcs in the upcoming Arc System Works developed fighting game.

Here’s how publisher Bandai Namco describes the mode:

DRAGON BALL FighterZ’s story mode links players with the body and mind of Goku to discover what caused all the DRAGON BALL warriors to lose consciousness when a group of warrior clones appeared. Players will play through three story arcs to uncover the nefarious plot behind this highly unusual situation.

For even more on the fighting game, you can check out our E3 2017 hands-on preview in order to learn more. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say about it:

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 gauge 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 will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26, 2018.
