Last month we learned that Goku is coming to Dragon Ball FigherZ… again. The latest iteration of the popular Super Saiyan is his child-like form from Dragon Ball GT. This new arrival is set for May 9th on all platforms. In the meantime, publisher Bandai Namco just put out a new trailer that shows off GT Goku in action, including his Super Saiyan 4 form.
Dragon Ball FighterZ has been a huge hit with well over 3 million copies sold since its debut just over a year ago, and Bandai Namco has kept players engaged with regularly released new content. New fighters have joined the game in DLC packs, and Season 2 is in full swing. The latest newcomer has just been revealed, and it’s… an interesting choice.
According to the most recent issue of Japanese publication Monthly V-Jump, Goku is coming to FighterZ… again. The latest version of Goku to join the fight is his childish GT form. He’ll come equipped with the Super Kamehameha which “transforms him into Super Saiyan 3 when there are two or fewer overall team members remaining” according to Gematsu. He also has access to the Super Spirit Bomb and another unknown Meteor Special. He can also fight with his Power Pole and fire off a Reverse Kamehameha.
While many fans wish they could just forget GT ever happened, GT Goku should be a welcome addition to the roster. The more the merrier!
A few days ago, Bandai Namco unveiled season 2 of Dragon Ball FighterZ and revealed the identity of its first two DLC fighters. Universe 11’s ultra-powerful (and let’s be real here, ultra-boring) warrior Jiren the Gray is joining the fight. Alongside him, players will also have access to Satan’s little angel, Videl, who is sporting her Dragon Ball Z look from before Toriyama benched her. If you want to see these new fighters in action, we’ve got a gameplay video showing off their fighting styles.
Following the success of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse series and Dragon Ball FighterZ, Bandai Namco is gearing up to launch another game in Toriyama’s beloved universe (or, rather, multiverse). Earlier in the month, they teased that they were working on a new Dragon Ball Z action RPG, and they recently released its first trailer.
Additionally, a few new details surfaced in a press release. Unsurprisingly, “Dragon Ball Project Z: Action RPG” is just a code name, not the final title. The game will apparently stick to the well-known Dragon Ball Z storyline. Development is being handled by CyberConnect2, best known for the Naruto Shippuden series.
The game is slated to launch later this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but apparently not Nintendo Switch. Given the massive success of Xenoverse 2 and Dragon Ball FighterZ on Nintendo’s hybrid console, I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets ported eventually. It’s possible development began before Bandai Namco knew what strong sales Switch would have.
Dragon Ball FighterZ has quickly become one of the most beloved video games in the fighting game tournament scene. Combining the Dragon Ball franchise with the tight fighting game style of Arc System Works turned out to be lightning in a bottle. To keep up with the success of the game, a second season pass for fighter DLC has been revealed, with the first two fighters dropping this Thursday!
The first two characters of the season pass will be Jiren and Videl. Jiren, an extremely powerful fighter from Universe 11 introduced in Dragon Ball Super, is an explosive grappler that can essentially turn the entire battlefield into a mushroom cloud. Videl, Gohan’s rough-and-tumble wife, uses quick jabs and intense kicks while also summoning the Great Saiyaman to take care of combos and long-range moves. Both of these characters are expected to drop on January 31st.
While the third and fourth fighters of the season pass’ six characters remain unknown, the final two fighters were revealed. Fresh off of the new movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Gogeta and Broly will be available at a later date. No gameplay footage of those fighters exists at the moment, but we probably won’t have to wait too long for more information about them.
A few days ago, Bandai Namco teased that they have a new Dragon Ball project in the works. The upcoming game, code-named “Project Z,” is an action RPG, but little else is known about it. We got a little more info today thanks to a tweet from Bandai that was strangely deleted shortly after it was posted. Thankfully, screenshots were taken ahead of time.
Bandai describes the upcoming action RPG as depicting “a never before expressed, nostalgic, and new Dragon Ball world.” It’s an intriguing description, but it really doesn’t give us much to go on. Along with that brief teaser, the tweet also contained a quick look at what is believed to be the new character models for Goku and Gohan.
Goku and Gohan are sporting their look from the very beginning of Dragon Ball Z, which means a young Gohan with his Four Star Dragon Ball hat. There wasn’t much else to this brief teaser, so it’s unclear why Bandai felt the need to remove it so quickly. A more official announcement is planned to be made during the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals on January 26th and 27th, so stay tuned!
Bandai has been knocking it out of the park lately with their video game adaptations of the legendary Dragon Ball franchise. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has been an immensely successful follow-up to the original Xenoverse, and last year’s Dragon Ball FighterZ is the highest-rated Dragon Ball game of all time. So what’s next for Bandai’s Dragon Ball lineup? Today we got our first hint!
According to a tweet from Bandai Namco’s UK account, developers will spend 2019 hard at work on an upcoming action-RPG set in the Dragon Ball Z universe. It’s simply known as “Project Z” at the moment, and no additional details have been revealed. However, we should be learning more soon. The Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Final will be held on January 26 and 27, and Bandai is teasing more info then.
The same tweet also indicated that “The Warrior from Universe 11” is coming to FighterZ. For those who haven’t kept up with the Dragon Ball Super anime, that would most likely be a reference to Jiren, Goku’s primary rival in the Tournament of Power arc.
Akira Toriyama’s beloved Dragon Ball franchise is still going strong, and that’s truer than ever when it comes to video games. Xenoverse 2 was a smash hit, and last year’s FighterZ is the top-rated game in franchise history. With Dragon Ball Super: Broly pulling in positive reviews in Japan and set to hit the West in just a few days, it’s the perfect time to capitalize on the hype with more gaming news, and Bandai Namco is doing exactly that.
Bandai recently announced plans for a special livestream in just a few days. The show will feature “BIG reveals, BIG news and BIG interviews with the producers of Dragon Ball FighterZ and Xenoverse 2.” It all kicks off at 4:00 PM Pacific / 7:00 PM Eastern on January 14th. The livestream will last for an hour, and you can watch it all on Bandai Namco’s official Twitch.
It’s been a long time coming, but you can finally play Dark Souls on the go and die anytime, anywhere. The remastered version of the brutal last gen game was originally slated to launch on Nintendo Switch in May, but after a delay of five months, it’s finally here. So too is the Solaire of Astora amiibo.
Dark Souls: Remastered will cost you $39.99 on Nintendo Switch, and the Solaire of Astora amiibo is priced at $15.99. Nintendo celebrated today’s launch with a new trailer that shows off some of the game’s vicious foes, and of course, sun salutations. Click above to watch!
My Hero Academia just made a huge splash at the box office with its first feature film, and soon it’s heading to the realm of video games as well. My Hero: One’s Justice is already out in Japan, and in a few weeks it’ll be available in the West as well. The anime fighting game boasts an extensive roster of playable heroes and villains, and that roster will continue to grow as more DLC characters are revealed.
Thanks to the latest issue of Jump, we now know who the next addition will be. Scans of the magazine show a section talking about upcoming DLC with a shadowy figure that appears to be Inasa Yoarashi, the passionate student known as Gale Force. The scans also give us a better look at Endeavor, the Flame Hero, who will be available as a pre-order bonus in the West.
The highest-rated Dragon Ball fighting game in history is headed to Nintendo Switch in just one day! That means Dragon Ball FighterZ is about to available on the go for the first time. To take advantage of this, publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment loaded it up with some exclusive new multiplayer modes, including 2v2, 1v1, and 6-player Party Match. Bandai has just released an early launch trailer that highlights some of these new features.
Bandai Namco Entertainment and FromSoftware recently teamed up to bring Dark Souls Remastered to modern consoles, but the Nintendo Switch version wasn’t ready in time for launch. After a lengthy delay, the punishing game will finally launch on Nintendo’s hybrid console on October 19th. Bandai promised that ahead of the game’s launch they’d make a Network Test available on Switch, and today’s the day!
With the Nintendo Switch Network Test, you’ll be able to explore the Undead Parish, and you’ll have access to both single-player and multiplayer content. To access the Network Test, you simply need to download the free client from the Nintendo eShop. The Network test goes live at the following times in the following regions:
For too long there has been an injustice in the world of Dragon Ball FighterZ. The critically acclaimed anime-to-fighting-game adaptation has a star-studded cast of fantastic characters, but thus far a fan-favorite has been relegated to a supporting role. That’s changing soon. Thanks to the latest issue of V-Jump in Japan, we now have official confirmation that Android 17 is on the way to FighterZ as a standalone character.
While there’s no exact release date yet, we know that the cruise-loving badass will drop sometime later this month. When he does, he’ll cost you $4.99 as DLC. Android 17’s attacks include charging foes (both in the air and on the ground) with his Barrier Explosion, the multi-hit End Game attack that catches enemies from behind, and a meteor attack called Super Electric Strike.
On the same day as the paid DLC, the new Space Arena state will also be added for free. There will also be limited time Z Capsules stuffed with seasonal goodies like Halloween costumes, and you can get your hands on those until November.
Easily one of the weirdest games I’ve ever played, Katamari Damacy tasks players with rolling up objects into a ball to create stars and other celestial objects. As weird as it sounds, Katamari has developed quite the cult following. Starting this winter, Switch owners can experience the joy of recreating the galaxy for themselves with Katamari Damacy REROLL. This remaster makes use of all the Switch’s features, including HD Rumble, gyro controls, and even a multiplayer battle mode!
My Hero: One’s Justice launched in Japan last week, and it’ll be heading to North America and Europe in less than two months. The anime-adapted 3D fighter features a diverse roster of over 20 heroes and villains, each with their own unique fighting style. In the case of Izuku Midoriya, better known as Deku, that’s soon to be two unique fighting styles.
The latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump has revealed that Shoot Style Deku is on his way to One’s Justice as a free DLC update. When using this style, Deku focuses on kicks instead of punches. Shoot Style Deku will have the fastest attack techniques of any character in the game, including consecutive kicks and new smashes.
Shonen Jump is also teasing another DLC character and a new mode. Based on the outline, the new character is Endeavor, who was previously available as a pre-order bonus.
The Dark Souls franchise has had a major impact on the game industry since it debuted in 2011, with “it’s like Dark Souls” becoming an all-pervasive catchphrase to describe games that offer an exceptional challenge. Whether you missed out on this popular franchise or just want to experience it all again, Bandai Namco has some great news. Dark Souls is getting a special trilogy bundle, and it’s coming out very soon!
Dark Souls Trilogy contains all three games (packaged inside an exclusive steelbook case) along with every bit of DLC ever released for the franchise. This comprehensive collection will cost you $80, and it’s launching on October 19th. Unfortunately, there are no plans to bring it to Europe at this time. Additionally, the Trilogy has only been announced for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There are no announced plans for a Nintendo Switch version; however, it is launching the same day as Dark Souls Remastered on Switch.
FromSoftware’s beloved (and feared) Dark Souls was remastered in HD and re-released back in May. Unfortunately, the Nintendo Switch version of the game apparently needed a little more time to cook. Publisher Bandai Namco initially announced that the Switch version had been delayed till Summer, but as the months passed and no updates were given, that window began to look unlikely. Today, we finally have our answer.
Bandai Namco has just announced on Twitter that Dark Souls Remastered launches on Nintendo Switch on October 19th. You’ll be able to pick up the Solaire of Astora amiibo on the same day. Bandai will also be holding a Network Test sometime before the game launches, so we’ll be on the lookout for more specifics in the coming weeks.
No Our Verdict
Praise The Sun! DARK SOULS: Remastered for #NintendoSwitch and the Solaire of Astora amiibo will launch on Oct. 19th! Journey to Lordran and experience the groundbreaking action-RPG on the go!
Dragon Ball FighterZ is about to get a little bit Cooler. EVO 2018 just wrapped up, and Bandai Namco Entertainment decided to use the popular fighting tournament to make an announcement about the next new fighter in Dragon Ball FighterZ. The publisher released a new trailer showing off Base Form Goku and Vegeta re-enacting their battle at the end of the Saiyan Saga before revealing a newcomer.
That’s right! Frieza’s older (and probably non-canon) brother Cooler is joining the fight! It’s not yet clear when exactly he’ll be available, but Base Goku and Vegeta launch on August 8th, so it will be sometime after that. In the meantime, you can check out his moves by watching the trailer above. Now when will we finally see Meta-Cooler?
As the My Hero Academia anime advances through the Provisional Hero License Exam story arc, Bandai Namco Entertainment is preparing to launch their video game adaptation of the popular series. You’ll be able to play as many of your favorite heroes and villains on October 26th (August 23rd in Japan), and today one more fighter was officially confirmed. The vilest villain of them all is joining the fight.
Just as fans suspected, the mysterious final fighter (based on a single empty character slot in demo footage) has been revealed as All For One. The criminal mastermind and arch enemy of All Might had been shown in trailers, but today we have confirmation that he will be playable. All For One will fight with a mixture of close and long ranged attacks, and he has the ability to steal the quirks of his opponents.
This info was revealed in the latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, and it also gave a little more info on Plus Ultra special attacks. These attacks can be unleashed once a gauge has filled up, but if you let all three gauges fill up before activating, you can launch a “Plus Ultra All” attack. This will allow you to unleash the full power of your main fighter as well as both sidekicks simultaneously.
Last month we learned that Dragon Ball FighterZ would be getting an open beta on Nintendo Switch in August. Now that the fated month is here, publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment has revealed more details, including dates and times, roster, and more. The open beta will be available to Switch owners in both North America and Europe next week!
