Bandai Namco announced three new fighters to the growing list of Dragon Ball FighterZ as well as details as on a standard game mode that comes with most fighters, the Arcade mode.
Starting with the characters, we got confirmation that Adult Gohan, Gotenks and Kid Buu, each adding something new to the game. Bandai Namco gave a brief description of what that is in their press release:
- Gotenks has a short reach but rapid movements such as the Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack.
- Gohan (Adult) can change the outcome of the fight by unleashing his ultimate ability mid-game to unlock his true power!
- Kid Buu with his high speed and power, is an expert for tricky attacks. He can stretch his arm, so reach should never be a problem!
According to Bandai Namco, Arcade mode will be very similar to the basic level increasing battles that we’re used to, but will give us an option for 3 paths to complete, once all three paths have been beaten, this will unlock the game’s Hard Mode, allowing you to take on even harder challenges. Arcade mode will also give players additional Zeni to unlock new colours for playable characters and additional items in the in-game shop.
You can check out Gotenks in action in the trailer above. Dragon Ball FighterZ is due for a January 26th 2018 launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
