Following today’s Dragon Ball FighterZ tournament grand finals in conjunction with Gamescom, Bandai Namco debuted a new promotional video showcasing gameplay of “Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan” (SSGSS, or “Super Saiyan Blue”) Son Goku and Vegeta in the upcoming fighting game.
The 3-on-3, “2.5D” fighting game is set for a February 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, and #18 (with #17), 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.
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.
Are they considered brand new fighters with gameplay styles different to the normal Goku and Vegeta, or are they like reskins with a few alternate moves?
