I don't have a translation, sorry.

EDIT: Developed by ARC System Works.
3D graphics on a 2D plane, like Guilty Gear Xrd.
3v3 in the same style as Marvel vs Capcom.

Dragon Ball Fighters?

That looks cooler than what I thought we were gonna get.

Curious how it'll play though.

Vegeta: Good plan. I hope it works.
Piccolo: ...
Vegeta: Don't look at me. You'll miss your instant.
Piccolo: So confident...I hope to see your face when Son Gokû arrives...
Vegeta: Oh? And who's that? Your secret weapon?

Press release specifically describes it as being like Guilty Gear Xrd, 3D on a 2D plane.

Those graphics, though. That looks like way better cel-shading graphics than I've seen! I've never thought the style translated well into 3D, but this looks really good.

It's the same guys who made Guilty Gear Xrd, the visuals are very similar to that game.

No Budokai 4/Burst Limit 2?! Sucks... but hopefully Arc System give us something actually good this time.

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

Since Persona 4 Arena is my favourite fighting game, color me very interested. And those graphics look so very Dragon Ball it's crazy! All I need now is a Switch port.

Looks great, I hope it involves more then just the Z era stuff though.

You sure it's not some scenes that get played when you make a special attack?

Same devs as Guilty Gear Xrd, that game was gorgeous and doesn't look too far off from those screen and that was a game made with PS3 in mind. The game will look like those screen shots, though the top one is probably part of the opening video or something, but using the in game visuals.

The graphics look gorgeous!
I also hope Arc System delivers the same quality that they did with Guilty Gear Xrd, because that game looks and sounds and plays beautifelly!
They better not pull the same stunt as Dimps did with Xenoverse by not adding all Frieza/Cell/Buu forms though...

I'm seriously hoping we get Dragon Ball Super characters in this game because I need them in these graphics.

It's not a nobody developer so maybe we'll get one of these every other year while we get a Xenoverse the other years.

This looks really good and I can't wait till E3 to hopefully see more from it.

ARC SYSTEM IS MAKING THIS?! Oh shit. Now lets hope that Daisuke Ishiwatari does the soundtrack and many characters from the original DB and Super make it in(mostly hoping for DB part 1 characters). Looks like we may have our Evo game.

Hopefully other anime series will have something like this. The Naruto series is long overdue for one since the PS2 and Gamecube days!

Super is just as important in Japan right now so it probably will.

How many characters do their games usually have ?

The game won't be out till early 2018 so it looks like we won't get anything this year or Xenoverse 3 till 2019. They weren't joking when they said it would take a lot longer to get it.

Need to see an actual trailer to properly judge, but this has the potential to be really good.
