Dragon Ball FighterZ Trailer and Game Play

As I’m sure most of you know E3 is currently under way and there have already been a lot of awesome new games that have been revealed for this year and the next. One of the games that was revealed during the Microsoft press conference has us here at Nerdgasm Needs super excited. Of course we are talking about the new DBZ fighting game titled Dragon Ball FighterZ. Yesterday we got our first short look at the game and today we actually have some full game footage and it looks awesome! If you are a fan of the Dragon Ball anime then this will definitely be a game at the top of your “must own” list. 

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a 2.5D fighting game from Bandai Namco and Arc Systems, the same developer of the popular fighting game series Guilty Gear. You can clearly see the Guilty Gear influence on this new DBZ fighting game and honestly this is probably one of the best things to happen to a Dragon Ball game. The actual game play looks really fast paced, like the anime, the character models look like you are actually watching the anime it’s self, the environments are destructible, and the special moves and ki blast looks absolutely fantastic. Dare I say this might actually be one of the best looking Dragon Ball games that has ever been released.

One of the only things I don’t think I like about this game is the invisible walls/boundaries that come with it being a 2D fighting game. I would have liked to have seen those removed a bit to give this game that feeling of being in a large battle that could cover up to a mile just like in the anime. Obviously I’m not a game developer and I’m also not sure how they would be able to accomplish something like that, but possibly being able to knock your opponent into other environments would have been a nice touch. Still this new DBZ game looks amazing and we can’t wait to get our hands on it. DRAGON BALL FighterZ will be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (via STEAM) in early 2018.

So check out the official trailer and the separate game play footage video posted below and as always, let us know what you think about it Nerd Nation.
