Earlier today, Bandai Namco Entertainment and Arc System Works confirmed that Dragon Ball FighterZ is now scheduled to launch in North America on January 26th, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The official box art is embedded below along with a few more details on the upcoming game.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is an upcoming 2.5D fighting game developed by Arc System Works and based on the popular Dragon Ball franchise. Announced during Microsoft’s E3 2017 press conference this past June, Dragon Ball FighterZ is already highly regarded as one of the most anticipated fighting games of 2018. Digital-preorders will start today and below are more details on which offers are available.
Players who pre-order the game digitally will gain early access to the upcoming DRAGON BALL FighterZ open beta (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only). Players will also get early access to SSGSS Goku & SSGSS Vegeta along with two exclusive lobby avatars and a Girls Stamp Pack, featuring Android 21, Android 18, and Bulma at launch.
Additionally, a Character Pass for DRAGON BALL FighterZ called the FighterZ Pass will also be available, offering players the opportunity to secure access to eight additional playable characters which will be released post-launch at a discounted price.
Lastly, there is a digital DRAGON BALL FighterZ Ultimate Edition digital offer which will include the game, the FighterZ Pass, an anime music pack containing 11 songs from the DRAGON BALL anime, and a commentator voice pack.
If January 26th sounds like a familiar date to you, that’s probably because Monster Hunter: World is also scheduled to launch on the same exact day. While 2017 is already shaping up to be an amazing year for gamers, 2018 is right on track to be just as impressive.
