As we wait for the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals for a possible DLC reveal, it looks like there will be more news than a second character pass for the acclaimed fighting game as a new Dragon Ball game has been teased. Producer Tomoko Hiroki teased this when he revealed that there would be big news for FighterZ after the World Tour Finals, calling it “other big news.”
What this new Dragon Ball game will be like wasn’t stated, as the showcase mostly focused on existing titles getting additional support like FighterZ and Xenoverse 2, along with April’s Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission. Adding a fourth Dragon Ball game to the lineup is going to be very interesting and we can only hope that it is a fun time, just like FighterZ was.
Dragon Ball videogames have always had a mixed track record with fans, as most of the titles are usually just for fans. FighterZ was a huge change, not only appealing to casuals who like the anime but actual fighting game pros who battle in eSports. This new Dragon Ball game will likely be aimed at fans again but no one should complain if its fun.
Jump Force, a big crossover game with a number of Shonen Jump characters, also features combatants from Dragon Ball. Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo, Trunks, Cell, and Frieza will all be playable in the game. It’s doubtful that the new game will connect to this or any of the current DBZ games but it’s worth mentioning nonetheless.
The new Dragon Ball game will be revealed later this month on January 26 or 27.
