Dragon Ball FighterZ is a couple of months out, but during Paris Games Week 2017 Bandai Namco held a tournament for the upcoming fighter. If you’ve been waiting to see some higher level play for FighterZ, this is the video you’ll want to watch. Dragon Ball FighterZ is releasing next year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Shoryuken has posted videos of the entire tournament, but we all know the best video to watch for the best gameplay is the Grand Finals:

When news came out that Arc System Works was developing a Dragon Ball Z fighting game, a lot of fans mentioned that it was a dream collaboration. It’s easy to see why as the BlazBlue and Guilty Gear developer is a master of creating fast-paced, highly stylized fighting games. However, this isn’t actually the first time that Arc System Works has gotten their hands on the popular anime and manga franchise. Previously, the studio has made several DBZ fighting games, but they were all middling affairs that exclusively released on handheld devices.
Their first console Dragon Ball game is much more promising, as I walked away very impressed after playing several competitive matches. The biggest change from Arc System Works’ previous games is that Dragon Ball FighterZ features three-on-three battles. This means that a match only ends once an entire team has been knocked out by their opponent.
Dragon Ball FighterZ will release January 26, 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
