Dragon Ball FighterZ Starts 2018 With An Open Beta Test!


With a few weeks to go before the release of one of the highly anticipated fighting games, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Bandai Namco has scheduled an Open Beta Test for the game.

The Open Beta Test would include additional characters from the anime, Dragon Ball Super, such as Beerus, Hit, and Goku Black.Specializing in attacks without any blind spots, Beerus will demonstrate his power with his super move: God of Destruction’s Judgement. By accumulating time, Hit is able to release the “Death Blow” which will surely disrupt the fight! Goku Black is really good at raiding from long distance, especially with the help of Zamasu on some attacks!


Dragon Ball FighterZ would also feature a unique gameplay mechanic, which is a first in fighting games called the Shenron System. As players manage to accumulate certain combo hits it would release Dragon Balls on the screen as the battle ensues. When a player collects all 7 Dragon Balls, Shenron, just like in the anime series, would grant a wish to players. Four options would be available to choose from that would enable players to win the fight.


Players would also have the chance to recreate their favorite anime moments in Dragon Ball Fighter Z with the game’s Dramatic Scenes or short cutscenes triggered before or after the fight if the players meet certain conditions.

The Open Beta Test would run between January 13th until January 16th 2018. Players who pre-ordered the game will have extra slots on the early access from 13th January 2018.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is scheduled for a January 26, 2018 release date and would be available on the Playstation 4 and PC.
