Bandai Namco will have quite the presence at Jump Festa 2017. The publisher announced today that they’ll be holding a prerelease tournament for the game on day two of the Shonen Jump festival. In addition of that, they’ll also be premiering a new trailer for the upcoming fighting game. Jump Festa 2017 takes place on December 16 and 17.

Despite its January 26, 2018 release date, there are still several characters yet to be unveiled for Dragon Ball FighterZ. That’s why it’d make a lot of sense for this trailer to show off some new characters. Jump Festa has traditionally been a big deal for Bandai Namco, so expect to see something worth caring about.

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.
