Three new characters have been revealed for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Confirmed to be playable in the upcoming Arc System Works fighting game are Gotenks, Kid Buu, and Ultimate Gohan.
Gotenks will feature a deadly Charging Ultra Super Volleyball attack as an ultimate. Meanwhile, Ultimate Gohan will have an Ultimate Kamehameha attack that is dependent on his current energy gauge, and Kid Buu will use his Planet Burst ability.
Finally, it was revealed that players will be able to collect money in-game to unlock character variations and character titles, and that the Arcade mode would feature several different routes depending on how players perform.
For even more on the fighting game, you can check out our E3 2017 Dragon Ball FighterZ 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.
