Game Review: Dragon Ball Fighter Z

Prepare for the fight of your life where a new game awaits for you!

Dragon Ball Z fans!!!

Prepare for the fight of your life where a new game awaits for you!

Enter Dragon Ball Fighter Z!

The anticipated game is set to release on January 26th of next year. The game is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows (PC). The upcoming game is also developed by Arc System Works and published by world renowned Bandai Namco Entertainment, which is based on the Dragon Ball Z series.

High-End Anime Graphics

As a dragon ball z fan, you have to buy this game when it comes out. Remember Dragon Ball: Raging Blast and the sequel of it Dragon Ball: Raging Blast 2, which I used to own; they were very popular seven or six years ago. Well, compared to this new game, the enhancement of the realistic imagery of the high-end graphics is out of this world and more refined than both of those games I named earlier. 

Thanks to the Unreal engine and the most talented team at Arc System Works, the visual effects is extraordinary. The above photo is an example of real graphics when Super Saiyan 3 Goku powers up tremendously.

3vs3 Battle

3vs3 Tag-Team Battle

The Dragon Ball Fighter Z game includes a 3vs3 tag team battle, where you can be either on the red team or the blue team and you as the player can create a dream team of warriors to represent your respective teams to victory. What I love about this concept tag-team is that it allows players to train and master more than one fighter/style warrior of their choice, which brings an amazing gameplay experience. You could never go wrong with fighting alongside your rival or nemesis to win the fight (just like the "Tournament of Power" for example). 

Super Saiyan 2 Gohan vs. Perfect Cell

Spectacular Fights 

Check out Super Saiyan 2 Gohan's huge Kamehameha Blast when he used it against the Perfect Cell!

Now that was one of the spectacular fights in the "Android Saga" ever, when Gohan finally unleashed his inner power that we all know he had and showcased it for all of us to see. The image above is the perfect example of how a spectacular fight really looks like in the game. Gohan owned Cell in that fight, becoming the first to become Super Saiyan 2! There are other awesome fights in the game, but this was my absolute favorite.

Gotenks Character Trailer

Game Updates

There are a few characters that are added to the Dragon Ball Fighter Z game and one of them is Gotenks(the fusion of Goten and Trunks). What separates Gotenks from any other fighter is his arrogance and cocky nature (which reminds me of both Vegeta and Goku when they fuse) to go up against any strong opponent and challenge them at will. Remember when both Goten and Trunks fused the second time and finally nailed it, the first thing they did was fly straight to where Majin Buu (Absorption of South Supreme Kai) was located and got a good old-fashion beat-down by Buu, which made Piccolo very angry at them. 

Gotenks is bound to be added because of his unique fighting skills and how he can bounce back from a tough fight. 

Gohan (Adult) Character Trailer

The next character that is among the few who were added to the Dragon Ball Fighter Z game is Goku's oldest son Gohan (Adult), better known as Ultimate/Mystic Gohan. Unlike other fighters, Gohan possess a mystic power that unlocks his true potential and can rival with a stronger opponent (Super Buu for example). The place where he trained was located at the Supreme Kai Planet (where the Elder Kai trained him). 

Remember the fight between Gohan and Super Buu, where Gohan dominated Buu for a while? This was the battle where Gohan had the chance to use his new abilities, along with a confident-cocky personality that prevented him from finishing Super Buu for good. Gohan doesn’t possess the same passion as his father Goku has for fighting, and instead choosing to only engage in battle to defend Earth and the lives of his loved ones. 

Gohan (Adult) is a must have for any Dragon Ball fighting game, especially this one.

Kid Buu Character Trailer

Known for his sadistic and evil tactics, Kid Buu is an extremely skillful fighter that can go toe-to-toe with the bets fighters in the world. I wonder why he was not selected to represent Universe 7 in the "Tournament of Power" instead of Frieza of all people. Can you imagine how many fighters Kid Buu would eliminate all at once?

That was just a thought. 

Now back to Kid Buu. 

Unlike enemies that Goku faced, Kid Buu possess numerous powerful attacks that can instantly put you away when you have no stamina at all. Kid Buu is so powerful that he can destroy planets using Instant- Transmission, the same technique Goku currently has to travel any planet he choose to go. Having unpredictable thoughts and unremorseful for his actions, Kid Buu will certainly be a fierce fighter to contend with in Dragon Ball Fighter Z. 

With endless stamina and quickness, Kid Buu can be one of the most dangerous characters to come across any fighter during battle or a powerful ally on your team. You got to have a powerful evil fighter in this game because is if you don't and only have protagonist fighters, then the game will not be playable. 

Do you guys agree?

Story Trailer

Stories are one of the most important aspects of a game, especially when it is your first time playing a game you really love. As you go through plots and the dynamics of each story, you will find out how to solve different mysteries and fight boss battles for you to protect Earth. In the story, you as a player will link with Super Warriors and search for the hidden truth of the story consisting of three arcs. Then you will explore the map and bond with the Super Warriors, whether if it's saving allies or finding powerful skills. 

It is all up to you, players!

As a special treat for you all to know what to expect from the upcoming Dragon Ball Fighter Z game, below is the gameplay trailer of both Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Vegeta tearing it up:

To add these two great warriors to the game, you can pre-order now and get both Super Saiyan God Goku and Vegeta before the game comes out!
