A new trailer has been released for Dragon Ball FighterZ, the fighting game based on the popular manga and anime launching next year on PC and consoles in all regions.
The new trailer, which can be watched below, showcases the Super Saiyan Blue transformation for both Son Goku and Vegeta as well as all the confirmed playable characters. At the end of the trailer, we also get a glimpse of the game's Story Mode, which will be supervised by Akira Toriyama himself, and of Android 21, a brand new character who will have a central role in the story.
The Dragon Ball FighterZ Story Mode is one of the many unknowns of the game. As Dave noted in his preview, it will be interesting to see if Arc System Works is creating essentially a long cutscene or if it will have some playable sequences.
The main questions now are, how will the story mode play out (will it be essentially the world’s longest cutscene with no fighting, a la Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN and REVELATOR?) and how many more characters will there be. This is a 3v3 fighter, and although the current cast is loads of fun to play, it feels like the game needs a bigger roster so players don’t end up going against the same characters too often.
Right now, though, Dragon Ball FighterZ is basically confirmed to be a wonderful fighting game – if a bit simplified when compared to some of the FGC heavy hitters, and even other Arc System Works games. One for both fighting fans and Dragon Ball fans, finally!
Dragon Ball Fighter Z launches in February 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
