We’ll continue to update this feature with the review, guides, and more as they’re published, so stay tuned!

Release Date

Dragon Ball FighterZ releases on January 26 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Who’s On The Roster?

There are currently 24 playable characters on the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster. The game has a season pass that will add eight more characters to the roster post-launch.

The roster primarily includes Dragon Ball Z characters, though there are a few introduced in the recent Dragon Ball Super–including Goku Black, Beerus, and Hit–and an entirely new character, the mysterious Android 21, who is locked behind completion of the story mode.

What About The Story Mode?

Dragon Ball FighterZ includes a new story mode that takes place after the end of Dragon Ball Z and sometime during the events of Dragon Ball Super. The new character, Android 21, seems to play a major part in the story.

Note that in any mode, you can opt to use either the Japanese or English voice acting.

Collector’s Edition And Pre-Order Bonuses

The Dragon Ball FighterZ CollectorZ Edition includes a seven-inch Goku statue with a manga-inspired art style, an exclusive steelbook case, three art boards, and the game. Those who pre-order the game will get codes to unlock Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Vegeta in-game.
