Dragon Ball FighterZ is a highly anticipated fighting game coming out next year. Its visual style is one the almost perfectly reflects the anime that it’s based off of, and over the last few months many interesting characters from the history of the series have been put into the game. But now, Bandai Namco has dropped the first story trailer for the game, and it reveals some very interesting things about what you are going to experience in it. Here are the key elements.
First off, you are linked with Son Goku, so much so that you don’t remember who you are at the beginning of the game. Turns out a series of incidents have occurred, and the Z-Fighters have been knocked unconscious because of it. To make matters worse, there’s a mysteries army of clones out there, with no clue as to who or what created them.
And then, there’s the new character (made specifically for this game), Android 21, who not only gets some screentime here but gets a bit of her personality shown off. And she may be a cannibal. No seriously, she talks about eating the other Z-Fighters and wonders how “tasty” they’ll be. Her and Android 16 are a key part of the story, and it’ll be fun to see how it all plays out.
The games story will be broken down into three arcs, and through them, you’ll not only get to learn the truth about what’s going on, but you’ll get to see characters not part of the roster, such as Bulma, Supreme Kai, and more.
Speaking of the characters, you’ll travel through the Dragon Ball world in order to not just learn new skills, but improve your bonds with the other characters and recruit them to your cause.
Dragon Ball FighterZ comes to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on January 26th.
