Dragon Ball FighterZ's Beerus receives spotlight as open beta begins


Surprise, a cat with an attitude issue

Bandai Namco have released another trailer showing off of one the roster members for the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ, which is so close now you can almost taste it.

Lord Beerus, antagonist of 2013 Dragon Ball movie Battle of the Gods, is an anthropomorphic cat god and, as such, displays well-known feline traits such as laziness, selfish behaviour and a pissy attitude. Beerus' video game incarnation reflects this lethargic approach to carnage, with a relatively relaxed fighting stance and puppet projectiles, similar to Street Fighter V's Menat.

Beerus is one of the few latter-announced characters that I've been lucky enough to get hands-on with, and I thought he was a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to to getting some more play-time with him this weekend, as part of the game's open beta.

The beta, which can be pre-loaded now on PS4 and Xbox One, goes live today for those who have pre-ordered the game, and tomorrow for everybody else. It will feature Training and Online modes and ten playable characters. The beta servers will close at 11:59PT on Monday, January 15.

Dragon Ball FighterZ launches January 26 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
