Dragon Ball FighterZ announces closed beta, adds Trunks to character roster

It's also been confirmed, in a trailer at Evo 2017, that Trunks is the next character to join the fighting game's roster.

The Dragon Ball FighterZ beta launch, as well as a new addition to the roster of playable characters, has been announced during this year's Evolution Championship Series.

"In terms of the Switch version, we're now working on Xenoverse 2 for the Switch, so we want players to first go there, and then we can talk about FighterZ". Bandai Namco has announced that it will begin sign-ups for a closed beta very soon, and that beta will actually take place this month.

And Psyonix, on their end, has made it clear that activating all-platform crossplay is just a matter of nearly literally flipping the switch as soon as they get the greenlight to do so. However, some fans may take issue with this for a couple of different reasons. There's a ton of power in that handheld, digital horses under the hood that somehow make the most of the hardware to deliver games which are colourful to say the least. "Arc System Works brings a pedigree and record of quality that fighting game fans can trust; with awesome visuals players might mistake as actual 2D animation from the famed DRAGON BALL series".

Secondly, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will have already been available for other platforms for almost a year by the time it launches for the Nintendo Switch. Hopefully for Nintendo Switch owners, third party games like Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 sell well so the console can receive ports of other major third party releases. What character are you thinking about gaining in Dragon Ball FighterZ?

Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in early 2018.
