Oh man, Dragon Ball FighterZ really couldn’t be a more beautiful fighting game if it tried. With the power of Guilty Gear developer Arc System Works and a cast of the most iconic anime action heroes behind it, this game feels like the first time you’ll be able to “play the show.”
This could be the best looking fighting game ever made, and it ranks up there with South Park: The Stick of Truth for loyalty to its screen roots.
The latest batch of screenshots stars my two favorite Dragon Ball characters, Krillin and Piccolo. Both bring their unique and totally awesome special abilities to the game with them and, thank the maker, they aren’t Super Saiyans! These two characters continue to thrive in popularity in spite of Goku’s alien race dominating the lore of the show.
It just goes to show you that Super Saiyans aren’t always the answer in Dragon Ball after all.
Dragon Ball FighterZ will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018. A beta test is expected to begin this Wednesday, July 26.
