Dragon Ball FighterZ is a 3D fighting game, simulating 2D, developed by Arc System Works and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Based on the Dragon Ball franchise, it was released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows in most regions in January 2018, and in Japan the following month, and was released worldwide for the Nintendo Switch in September 2018. Dragon Ball FighterZ involves the player picking a team of 3 playable characters and a unique assist for each, then fighting an AI or human opponent with their own team of 3 characters. Players each select three characters to form a team, from an initial roster of characters from the Dragon Ball franchise. In addition to the unique moves of each character, players have several universal moves available. The «Dragon Rush» move can break through an opponent’s guard and if successful, offers a choice between an aerial combo or forcing the opponent to switch to a different character.
Lastly, players can «Ki Charge» to manually increase their Ki gauge, similar to previous Dragon Ball fighting games. The game includes several other features, such as «Come on Shenron!», that allow players to gather the Dragon Balls one by one as the fight progresses. A random Dragon Ball will be given to a player that successfully performs a light auto combo. Specific Dragon Balls can be obtained by successfully performing a multi-hit combo, with the number of hits determining which ball is given. Another feature is the «Dramatic Finishes», special cutscenes that appear at the end of a fight depending on the characters involved and stage, related to events from the Dragon Ball series, which can be applied after using Standing Hard normal attack or Vanish as the finisher/combo ender. Season 3 allows players to choose three different Assist types before the match. Dragon Ball FighterZ features a ranking system in both its arcade mode as well as in online multiplayer, where players increase their rank with subsequent wins.
