As we at miso sit impatiently with crossed legs, Bandai Namco Entertainment America has once again won us over with the latest cinematic for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Developed by Arc System Works, we’re given insight into the combat of Dragon Ball FighterZ once more, previewed in a few scenes within the trailer. There’s never been a time that I’ve wanted to possess all seven dragon balls, until now.
With 23 characters currently on the roster, teams are already been created by many players. Dragon Ball FighterZ traditionally offers combat in a three-versus-three format, where two players select three characters to make up a team. Both players can control all three characters within a match, although not simultaneously.
Whilst fights may be one on one, the tables can be turned at any moment as the other two characters on either team may be used to ‘assist’ a player in unique ways. Krillin, a bald-headed monk, can throw Senzu Beans to heal either player’s blue health gauge, whilst (both – yes, there are two) Gohan threatens to knock up an opponent in front of him with a quick, diagonal charge.
Despite the fairly huge list of characters, we have yet to see all of the characters’ combos and abilities. Regular breakdowns are posted, however, and with four weeks to wait, Dragon Ball FighterZ just keeps getting hotter and hotter.
Watch the official cinematic below.
