Battle begins this weekend
Bandai Namco have released the eleven characters who will be playable in the open beta of their anime fight-fest Dragon Ball FighterZ, which goes live on consoles this weekend.
Come Sunday, players will be able to jump online and test out the tag-team battle action with Goku, Vegeta, Nappa, Krillin, Cell, Android 18, Piccolo, Freiza, Beerus, Gohan and Kid Buu. Pretty cool selection. Based on my time with the game thus far, I’m definitely gunning for Beerus and Vegeta first. Practice mode will also be available, for you to get your sick tech down.
In related news, yesterday saw the release of a short trailer for the monstrous looking Goku Black, who’s uber-edgy design and devastating attacks look set to make him one of the most commonly encountered characters in the game’s early online days. You can check the video out below.
