Back when release dates for Dragon Ball FighterZ was first made public, the official schedule was a February 1, 2018 release in Japan. But recently, the Steam store page has gone live and with it a reveal of a (thankfully) much earlier release date: January 26, 2018.
Besides the much earlier release date, the release model was also set in stone, as well as the prices. The game will release with the base game itself, along with a FighterZ edition and an Ultimate Edition. The former comes with the season pass (which includes 8 DLC fighters) while the latter comes with everything from the FighterZ edition and adds a soundtrack and additional commentator voice pack.
Preordering the base game or any of the special editions entitles a player to early unlocks for SSGSS Goku and SSGSS Vegeta (both can be unlocked ingame) as well as a stamp pack.
It’s not all good, though. The base game is priced as a full-priced AAA game at $59.99, even though it’s arguable that it is a gutted experience due to a substantial amount of playable characters being locked behind a DLC paywall. Getting the full game via the FighterZ edition will net you $94.99, a hefty price tag considering how much other Arcsys (and for that matter, Dragon Ball) games on Steam were worth.
