Dragon Ball FighterZ is the upcoming 2D fighter featuring characters from the popular manga/anime series, Dragon Ball. The game will feature a variety of characters from the series and allows players to create a team of up to three fighters to battle it out over a campaign or online in multiplayer mode. You can read the official description here: “After the success of the Xenoverse series, it’s time to introduce a new classic 2D DRAGON BALL fighting game for this generation’s consoles. DRAGON BALL FighterZ is born from what makes the DRAGON BALL series so loved and famous: endless spectacular fights with its allpowerful fighters. Partnering with Arc System Works, DRAGON BALL FighterZ maximizes high end Anime graphics and brings easy to learn but difficult to master fighting gameplay to audiences worldwide.”
