Could this be it? Could this be the Dragon Ball game that us long-time fans have been waiting for since Budoki 3, all the way back on the PS2? I’m trying to keep my hype level down but Dragonball Fighter Z looks like everything a DBZ fan could want and more. The return to the glory days of 2D combat, cel shaded graphics that look exactly like the anime, and not to mention team fights!
I was expecting a new DBZ game to be announced but was honestly just expecting Xenoverse 3 because of how well the first two sold. So, I can’t begin to explain how glad I am that Bandai Namco isn’t playing it safe and is switching things up. Especially with them unveiling the game at Microsoft’s E3 conference, who saw that coming?
Another promising detail about Dragon Ball Fighter Z is that it’s being developed by Arc System Works, the developers behind some of the most underrated and underappreciated fighting games out there, with Guilty Gear and BlazBlue. Also, the game seems to be under a year away with a launch window of “early 2018.”
What do you guys think of Dragon Ball Fighter Z? Are you guys as excited as I am? Let me know in the comments below!
