UPDATE: Bandai Namco formally unveiled the “FighterZ Pass” for all editions of the game as an additional $34.99 purchase indeed slated to include eight additional (unannounced) characters.

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. Currently-announced playable characters include Son Goku, Son Gohan, Vegeta, Freeza, Cell, Boo, Trunks, Piccolo, Kuririn, #16, #18 (with #17), Yamcha, Tenshinhan (with Chiaotzu), Ginyu, and Nappa, as well as “Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan” (SSGSS, or “Super Saiyan Blue”) versions of Goku and Vegeta that can be accessed early via pre-orders. A closed beta was recently held on consoles — tune in to Episode #0427 of our podcast for some initial thoughts.

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.
