to Begin

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–Leading anime video game developer and publisher BANDAI NAMCO
Entertainment America Inc. today announced the launch of DRAGON
BALL® FighterZ
in the Americas for the Xbox One, PlayStation®4
computer entertainment system, and PCs via STEAM®. As the official Game
Critics Awards: Best of E3 2017 award winner for Best Fighting Game, DRAGON
BALL FighterZ
is the definitive DRAGON BALL fighting game
experience combining classic 2D fighting game dynamics with characters
from the renowned DRAGON BALL universe, one of the most popular
and iconic anime franchises around the world.

Developed by Arc System Works, a celebrated developer of 2D style
fighting games; DRAGON BALL FighterZ delivers explosive
graphics and over-the-top gameplay combining classic 2D fighting visuals
with advanced 3D character models that look and feel as if they are
ripped straight out of the DRAGON BALL anime series. The game is
already gaining critical acclaim with GameSpot.com giving DRAGON
BALL FighterZ
a 9/10 saying “FighterZ is complex and distinct
enough to be enjoyed by fighting game competitors, but there’s no
question that it’s been designed to tap into the hearts of Dragon Ball’s
most dedicated fans…” While IGN.com scores DRAGON BALL FighterZ
with an 8.5/10 saying “FighterZ is fast, fluid, and cerebral.”

DRAGON BALL FighterZ gives fans the opportunity to take
their favorite DRAGON BALL characters into battle and bring to
bear some of the most famous moves from the DRAGON BALL universe
such as Goku’s “Kamehameha”, Vegeta’s “Big Bang Attack”, and Frieza’s
“Death Ball”. Featuring 3 vs. 3 battle mechanics, players assemble their
teams and take to the field-of-battle to experience eye-popping fights
that are sure to wow any fighting game aficionado. DRAGON BALL
FighterZ
debuts an original character – Android 21 – whose
creation was supervised by DRAGON BALL creator, Akira Toriyama.
The game also features a unique storyline, dynamically told through
animated cut-scenes. With its cast of fan-favorite characters, players
will surely train and master more than one fighter and style, delivering
richer gameplay and motivation to take down the competition.

DRAGON BALL FighterZ has been a pleasure to work on since
we announced the game at the Microsoft E3 press conference last year.
Throughout the year, we’ve received nothing but high praise, support,
and excitement from media and fans alike; the energy surrounding this
title is definitely over 9000!” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of
Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “Now that the game
is in the hands of players, we’re looking forward to seeing both
fighting game and DRAGON BALL anime fans battle for bragging
rights in DRAGON BALL FighterZ.”

DRAGON BALL FighterZ is available now in the Americas for
the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 system, and PCs via STEAM with a MSRP of
$59.99. For more information regarding DRAGON BALL FighterZ
