The official release date has been revealed by Bandai Namco
Bandai Namco has announced that 2.5D fighting game DRAGON BALL FighterZ will be arriving early next year.
DRAGON BALL fans in the Americas looking to get their Kamehameha kicks won't have to wait too long as the game launches on January 26, 2018 - with UK and EU dates to be confirmed.
The story features Goku and his friends engaging in a new battle against an army of super androids led by Android 16, which have been designed to resemble and fight like them. The story has three chapters - Super Warriors Arc, Super Villain Arc and Android Arc. Each chapter follows the same storyline from the perspective of different characters in the DRAGON BALL universe.
Pre-order bonuses already announced by publisher Bandai Namco and developer Arc System Works include early access to SSGSS Goku and SSGSS Vegeta, along with two exclusive lobby avatars and a Girls Stamp Pack featuring Android 21, Android 18, and Bulma at launch.
In addition, the FighterZ Character Pass for DRAGON BALL FighterZ will also be available, offering players the opportunity to access eight additional playable characters which will be released post-launch at a discounted price.
There's also the DRAGON BALL FighterZ Ultimate Edition digital offer, which includes the game, the FighterZ Pass, an anime music pack - containing 11 songs from the DRAGON BALL anime - and a commentator voice pack.
