Bandai Namco Entertainment America and Europe announced on Monday that they will release the Dragon Ball FighterZ game for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam in the Americas and Europe on January 26. The companies also announced an Ultimate Edition and Fighterz Pass for the game.
The game's Ultimate Edition will include the FighterZ Pass, a music pack with 11 songs from the anime, and a commentator voice pack. The FighterZ Pass will include eight additional playable characters that will be released post launch, and it will also be available for purchase separately.
The digital pre-order period for the game opened on Monday. People who pre-order the game digitally will receive early access to the game's open beta for PS4 and Xbox One; early access to Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta with two exclusive lobby avatars; and a Girls Stamp Pack with Android 21, Android 18, and Bulma at launch.
Bandai Namco Entertainment America and Europe will also release a "CollectorZ Edition" that will bundle a Goku statue, three art boards, and steelbook packaging.
The game will launch in Japan on February 1 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
In the story mode, as the mysterious Clone Army invades, the Super Warriors lose consciousness, and their powers. At the same time, the player protagonist becomes mind-linked to Goku. Goku and players must fight together to reveal the mystery behind the link and the Clone Army. The story mode will also have two other stories, where the player protagonist becomes mind-linked to Android 18, and to Frieza.
Bandai Namco Entertainment America describes the game:
Arc System Works delivers an explosive, action-packed game that combines classic 2D fighting with advanced 3D character models that look and feel as if they are ripped straight out of the DRAGON BALL series.
Playable characters include Goku, Teen Gohan, Vegeta, Future Trunks, Freeza, Cell, Krillin, Piccolo, Android 18 (with Android 17), Android 16, Yamcha, Tien Shinhan (with Chiaotzu), Majin Buu, Gohan, Cell, Nappa, and Ginyu. The game is also adding an original playable character designed by Akira Toriyama named Android 21, who is described as a scientist possessing intelligence rivaling Dr. Gero.
