The debut trailer for the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ was shown this afternoon during Microsoft’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (“E3”) 2017 press briefing.

Characters shown fighting during the trailer include Goku (Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 3), Vegeta (Super Saiyan), Freeza (final form and Golden), Gohan (Super Saiyan 2), Cell (Perfect), and Majin Boo (Good).

The 3-on-3, “2.5D” fighting game is set for an “early 2018” release worldwide and is under development by Arc System Works for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam). The game is advertised as running at a 1080p resolution and 60fps frame rate, with higher resolutions available on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles. According to the company’s European branch, a closed beta on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be available, “before end of summer”.

Arc previously worked on Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden for the Nintendo 3DS, as well as the Super Sonic Warriors games (Bukū Tōgeki and Bukū Ressen) on the Nintendo Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS. The developer is otherwise known for their Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series of fighting games.
