Despite the massive hype surrounding the release of Bandai Namco and Arc System Works’ gorgeous 2.5D Dragonball fighting game, Dragonball FighterZ, the PC port isn’t exactly all sweetness and light as many players are worrying about the ridiculously high minimum system requirements (especially for a game of its kind). At the moment, the Steam store page lists an i7-3770 CPU, a GTX 660 4GB GPU, and 16 GB of RAM as the minimum requirements. It’s not unattainable, and we suspect many gamers already have rigs capable of exceeding those, but it is still too high for a minimum and players are worried that it’s an indication of a lazy unoptimized port.

If you are part of the people who were worried, Bandai Namco has stepped in and officially confirmed that the minimum requirements on the Steam store page are not final, and will be updated later on.

We suspect that the listed minimum specs are merely based on the PCs used by the developers to develop and test the game, and they have not yet done further testing in order to see how the build will perform on weaker PCs. It is a very common occurrence with Japanese-developed games on Steam, with other examples being the Koei-Tecmo-developed Dead or Alive 5: Last Round and One Piece Pirate Warriors 3, both of which initially had ridiculously high system requirements, but turned out to be optimized enough to run on potato PCs upon release.

Of course, Bandai Namco has only said that the minimum system requirements are not final. They never said that it’s going to be lower. For all we know, the true system requirements are much higher – but let’s not jinx it. We want Dragonball FighterZ to run on as many PCs as possible. We want it to run on your grandmother’s desktop, on your aunt’s laptop, on your sister’s pink AIO PC, and heck – we want Dragonball FighterZ playing on the little LED screen attached to the local gym’s treadmill. So get to it Arc Sys, optimize the shiz out of our game, and our wallets will be open and willing on January 26, 2018!

If you thought Arc System Works’ Gorgeous 2.5D anime fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ will have a roster that’s a little bit on the thin side, the latest announcement proves you wrong. But we’re going to guess that this is one of those rare times where you’re glad that you were wrong, because there’s 3 new popular characters that has been added to the roster: Kid Buu, Adult/Mystic Gohan, and SSJ3 Gotenks.

The announcement came via the latest issue of V-Jump magazine, and features images (and stats) of the new characters, as well as some new info on the game itself:

Based on the promo images, SSJ3 Gotenks has his trade mark super kamikaze ghost attack, and will also be able to use the charging ultra buu buu volleyball as a special meteor attack, with the help of whoever his current partner is. Adult Gohan also has a unique skill by way of “Unlock Potential,” which uses up his ki gauge in order to boost his power. And of course he has the family trade mark attack – the ultimate kamehameha. Kid Buu on the other hand, uses a Planet Burst attack as his special. The scan claims that it can wipe out the entire planet, so it’s a safe bet that it’s going to be one of the most damaging attacks in the game (though time will tell if it’s just massive damage or a one-hit win attack like Android 16’s.)

Dragon Ball FighterZ hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC in the west on January 26.

Bandai Namco has released another character-focused trailer for the upcoming 2.5D fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ, and this time around it’s all about Android 18, who is featured here in her time as a villain, which means Android 17 is also around, but only as an assist character for some of her attacks (it is not featured in the trailer, but other footages have shown Android 17 being replaced by Krillin as Android 18’s assist partner in one of her palette swaps.)

For the uninitiated, Dragon Ball FighterZ is notable for its use of developer Arc System Works’ innovative Unreal 3/4 –based engine and some clever tricks with animation in order to simulate 2D cel-shaded anime. The approach has been used to great effect in Arc System Works’ Guilty Gear XrD franchise.

Dragon Ball FighterZ hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC in the west on January 26, 2018. Pre-orders are now open, so get in while the getting’s hot.

A new promo video has been released for the upcoming 2.5D anime fighter Dragon Ball FighterZ. This is a fairly hefty PV clocking in at 3.55. But the catch is that it’s in Japanese. Still, it is worth a watch as it shows new footage from the game, including a glimpse of the story cutscenes and some gameplay footages. You can watch the PV below:

Dragon Ball FighterZ is anticipated by both Dragon Ball fans and fighting game fans (two groups that frequently overlap) for a number of reasons. For starters, it’s the first Dragon Ball game that is made with balanced, tournament-ready gameplay in mind, courtesy of iconic fighting game experts Arc System Works (of Guilty Gear and Blazblue fame). Next is that it uses a similar engine to Arc System Works’ Guilty Gear XrD series, which is known for using the Unreal Engine (3, but DBZF uses 4) to create high quality 2D visuals with dynamic camera angles, which is very effective in making the game look like actual scenes from an anime.

Dragon Ball Fighter Z will be released for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26, 2018.

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.

Dragon Ball Super is generally considered as a worthy continuation of the Akira Toriyama’s golden shonen franchise, even rendering the maligned GT obsolete without most fans batting an eye. However, there is one thing that fans consider an injustice – and that is Gohan seemingly being reduced to a bit player even though there was a point in the series where he was the most powerful warrior in the story, even beating out primary protagonist Son Goku in terms of raw power level.

A new promotional video for Arc System Works’ Dragon Ball FighterZ would like to remind fans of this glorious Gohan phase, as it features SSJ2 Gohan going all out in various in-game footages. You can check the PV below, and temper your desire to play the game because it won’t be coming out for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC until February 2018:

The recent participation of Androids 17 and 18 in Dragon Ball Super’s Tournament of Power story arc has led to a resurgence of the Androids’ fanbase, so it is not surprising that the upcoming fighting game DragonBall FighterZ will have the Androids in a more prominent role. But surprises still abound—not only are we getting Android 16, it seems like we’re actually getting a new Android character thrown into the mix.

The news came via the latest issue of V-Jump magazine, which reveals that series creator Akira Toriyama has designed a new Android, dubbed Android 21, for the game. 21 seems to be female, and wears glasses and a pair of hoop earrings. V-Jump also reveals Yamcha and Tien as playable characters, with Chiaotzu also making an appearance but only as a support character.

Bandai Namco continues to pump out character-specific videos for their gorgeous 2D fighting game DragonBall FighterZ, this time around they have left the goody-two-shoeses behind and focused on the undeniably evil little space tyrant, Frieza.

The video gives fans a glimpse of Frieza as he lays the smacketh down on his poor enemies, using a wide variety of moves (that any fan of the series by no doubt already knows by now), including a brief transformation to his more powerful (and shinier!) form, Golden Frieza. You can check it out below:

Bandai Namco is once again egging fans on and trying to get every one to preorder Dragon Ball FighterZ, and they are doing it by teasing all of us with the Super Saiyan Blue forms of Goku and Vegeta, both of which will be part of the preorder bonuses. The new trailer shows the two saiyans duking it out with other characters in their SSB and SSB Kaioken (in Goku’s case) forms.

For the uninitiated, the Super Saiyan Blue form is the transformation that Goku has achieved after Super Saiyan God form. It’s not so much an upgrade as it is a sidegrade—it’s slightly more powerful than Super Saiyan God form, but drains his stamina fast. The SSB Kaioken form, on the other hand, is just his kaioken used on top of SSB. It’s a form with vastly increased strength and speed, with the caveat that the stamina drains even faster. We currently don’t know how these mechanics will translate to the Dragon Ball FighterZ game, if at all. You can watch the trailer below:

Note that Bandai Namco states that these forms are “early unlocks” for people who preorder, similar to what happened with Future Trunks in Dragon Ball Xenoverse. People who preorder will get access to them first, but those who didn’t will still get access to them when they are released (what is not clear, is whether the SSBs are unlockable in the base game later or DLC content.)

Dragon Ball FighterZ will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in early 2018.

Bandai Namco’s official Facebook page has just unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming 2D fighting game Dragon Ball Fighter Z, and it looks like the game is shaping up to be a fully-furnished, story-and-gameplay rich experience that is well worth every Dragon Ball and/or Fighting game aficionado’s moolah.

First up is the reveal of new playable characters, so the complaint that the roster is pretty thin by modern fighting game standards no longer holds up. Aside from Piccolo and Krillin, which you will see in action in the trailer as they unleash their signature moves one after the other, we also get Androids 16 and 18. Don’t be fooled by 17’s appearance in the video thumbnail, he’s only there as part of Android 18’s super attack. Although considering how popular 17 is after his reappearance in Dragon Ball Super, we won’t be too surprised if he does turn out to be a playable character.

Next is the hint of a powerful boss in the game’s story mode. How powerful? How about powerful enough to create an army of evil Gokus? Or one powerful enough to bring down all of the Z Warriors? You have to watch the video yourself to understand:

Dragon Ball Fighter Z will be coming out for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC (digital only) on February 2018.

One reason for this is simply because they want to play Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on their Switches, but the more pertinent reason is because of the potential for motion controls in the game.

The recent most recent ad for the Nintendo Switch version of Xenoverse 2 shows off this much-awaited feature. It’s only a short clip, but it manages to show a few key scenes in which the Joy Cons are used to trigger a kamehameha attack. You can check out the video below:

A new promotional video has been released for Dragon Ball Super, and this time around it’s highlighting the Saiyan race, by showing various representatives from Universe 6 and 7: we have Cabba, Kale, Caulifla, and of course the triumvirate of Vegeta, Goku, and Gohan in brief clips that showcase their various forms and power ups. You can check out the PV below:

Of particular note here is Kale, who was initially anticipated by many fans as she reminds people of the very popular, but non-canon character Broly. However, that anticipation was ultimately marred by the odd portrayal (and wonky power scaling) present in the most recent episode of Super—Kale in her legendary super saiyan form was able to stand up to Super Saiyan Blue Goku.

The speed in which the universe 6 saiyans managed to ascend to a new form is not the problem here. Remember that Gotrn and Trunks achieved Super Saiyan easily as well. The problem is that Gotrn and Trunks’ Super Saiyan forms weren’t huge jumps in power, compared to the ones achieved by Goku, Vegeta, and Gohan who all had to go through intense training. Kale, on the other hand, had her first transformation and immediately went toe to toe with a Super Saiyan form that was meant to rival gods in power (IMHO, the story would have flowed better if Kale fought SSJ3 Goku instead of SSB.)

What makes this even worse is that Kale, which was built up to be this unstoppable monster, was easily dispatched by Jiren, who is then set up to go toe to toe with Goku.

Dragon Ball fans still have a long wait ahead of them before Bandai Namco and Arc System Works’ take on the franchise, Dragon Ball Fighter Z, gets a commercial release, but impatient people who want to contribute to testing the first builds will be given a chance via the first session of the closed beta tests in September 16 for the NA and EU regions, followed by other regions in September 18.

Of course, don’t wait until the actual date before scrambling to get an invite, because by then it will be too late. Not that you won’t be given enough time—Bandai Namco saw how many people wanted in, based on fan response during the recent EVO 2017 event, so they have decided to expand the closed beta’s capacity to accommodate more people, and the date of sign ups, which were originally slated for July 26, were pushed back to August 22.

So if you want in, mark your calendars for August 22 and make sure you have ample free time to register.

While Trunks’ introduction came with a promo video, Krillin and Piccolo sadly had to make do with a couple of screenshots. Fortunately, Bandai Namco aims to rectify that injustice a bit as they have recently unveiled a batch of screenshots that show off both Krillin and Piccolo in various situations. While not as good as seeing them in action via a gameplay video, it should at least sate fans for the time being until the open beta (sign up for a chance to play the beta on the PS4 on July 26) or for the really patient among you—until it is released for realsies in early 2018:

A couple of days ago, Bandai Namco has unveiled a new trailer for Dragon Ball Fighter Z that showcases a new character—Mirai Trunks. Now they continue to allay the fears of people who want more than 6 playable characters as the latest issue of V-Jump magazine confirms that Krillin and Piccolo will also be joining the roster.

The magazine also reveals that Krillin has a unique combat ability that allows him to charge his Destructo Disc by holding down a button, with the end-result being a more powerful disc and also unblockable at full charge.

It was also revealed that the Online Mode will take its cue from other Arc System Works games, where you will control chibi characters. The mode also allows players to fight each other using their chibi avatars.

The list of confirmed playable characters so far:

  • Goku
  • Gohan
  • Krillin
  • Piccolo
  • Vegeta
