23rd October, 2017, Richmond, LONDON: BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment today reveal that DRAGON BALL FighterZ will now be available earlier than anticipated on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and PC with a new release date – 26th January, 2018.
Fights are all about strategy. In DRAGON BALL FighterZ, they are becoming more and more strategical with the arrival of 2 new heavyweights Nappa and Captain Ginyu . Captain Ginyu is a powerful character having the ability to switch himself with the opponent’s fighter lasting until the end of the fight. Nappa is a heavy type character using the Saibamen to attack the enemy. Using the Saibamen correctly could help Nappa gain time to charge energy or prepare a combo.
Story Mode will surprise and delight fans with the LINK System allowing them to embody different characters, share their minds and even discuss with them while they live in the same body. That’s not all! Composed of 3 different parts, the story mode will allow players to experience 3 different perspectives each offering different details and secrets about the story. Players will first play the Super Warriors Arc from the perspective of the Saiyans, followed by the Super Villain Arc from the perspective of the enemies and finally the Android Arc from the perspective of the Androids. By taking part in different fighting combinations included in these 3 chapters, players will be able to level up their characters and get a full understanding of the amazing DRAGON BALL FighterZ scenario! The story mode map will also surprise players by allowing tactical moves as you will have different options for their next destination. This strategical choice will have an impact on fighting abilities in future fights!
Last but not least, more details about the online modes are also revealed! The online modes with interconnected match-making will be the perfect place to test players’ skills. In the Circle Match mode, up to 8 players can enter into the room to fight against each other where up to 4 fights can happen simultaneously. The World Match mode will allow players to choose between casual and ranked matches.
