At Microsoft’s E3 2017 press conference, Bandai Namco Entertainment unveiled Arc System Works newest fighting game and it just happened to be the fighting every DBZ fan and fighting game enthusiast wanted but never knew could exist.
Gamescom 2017 CollectorZ Edition Rveal
The Collector’s Edition of Dragon Ball FighterZ will run you $140 and it has some nice goodies. You get a copy of the game (you’d be surprise how this has been easily missed in the past from other companies), a seven inch statue of Super Sayian Goku in epic powering up form and torn clothing. You also get 3 art boards, a coloring book, and the trademark steel book case collectors editions contain. This all nicely packed in a collectors box for bragging rights.
This wouldn’t be current gen release without the now standard pre-order bonuses. Should you be inclined to preorder Dragon Ball FighterZ, you get two characters unlocked in the form of Super Sayian Blue Goku and Super Sayian Blue Vegeta (they may be locked to the physical versions). Preordering also gets you two exclusive avatars for the lobby.
New playable characters
The initial reveal trailer showed off characters: Goku, Vegeta, Teen Gohan, Frieza, Cell, and Buu. Later it was revealed Trunks would be joining the roster and Krillin and Piccolo were revealed via Japanese magazines. With SSB Goku and SSB Vegeta as preordered bonuses and the Gamescom reveal of Androids 16 and 18 (Android 17 helps 18 when playing with her) the roster now consists of 13 and with an early 2018 release date, the roster could double.
A closed Beta takes place on the weekend of September 16-17, Xbox One players can sign up via the Xbox Insider Program as of the writing of this article. I hear it’s over 9000. I’ll see myself out.
