DRAGON BALL fans rejoice! Today we’re sharing two big updates for both DRAGON BALL FighterZ & DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2.
New DRAGON BALL Super characters will be joining the fight in DRAGON BALL FighterZ with Beerus, Hit, and Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black being officially added to the games roster.
DRAGON BALL FighterZ will also present special dramatic cinematic cutscenes from numerous points in DRAGON BALL history – such as the first time Goku took-on his Super Saiyan form – when certain team character combinations are chosen or specific finishing moves are performed.
We’re also sharing details about the “Shenron System” by which players who string a specific number of combos during battle will collect Dragon Balls on-screen. Once all the Dragon Balls have been collected, Shenron will appear to grant the player one of four wishes:
1. Restore my health: Restore your character to its full health (the one that you’re controlling)
2. Bring back my ally: Revive your lost ally to 50% health
3. Give me the ultimate power: Boost your Ki gauge to MAX
4. Make me immortal: Health will be 50% restored, and auto-restoration for energy gauge.
We also want to update everyone on the DRAGON BALL FighterZ open beta dates and times; the open beta will commence during the following times:
