So, Data Org from Kingdom Hearts II FM-type super bosses & a Final Fantasy-type skill tree. Nice.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.

No, the cover art is just Goku on Flying Nimbus.

New advertisement for the game. Honestly really touching, one of the best DB game ads I’ve seen in a long time

I honestly think it's one of best game trailers released all year.

You can tell this advert was directed and/or written by someone who legit likes Dragon Ball.

Should have been an ad for selling the DBZ Anime but damn for a very long time, even when adults I'd throw ka me ha me has and power up so this was really touching. I was alone in this though as I grew up most of my childhood in a country that never aired Dragon ball.

Glad I'm not the only one who really liked that commercial. It's amazing, I absolutely love it, and I wish we'd get something very akin to it for an ad here in the US, but I don't think we'd get that lucky.

Same I love it. It got me a little emotional first time I watched it.

Japan makes a super soulful trailer, US advertising branch is just.. spoiling the entire game with straight clips
Why are they doing this?

They better have BoG and RoF hidden postgame, otherwise we have seen almost everything by now (Except Trunks vs Mecha Freeza)

Am I the only one that feel unconfortable with the way the girls are depicted in the ad? This seems to reinforce the critique of DB beign a "sausagefest" and seriosly contradicts the direction the franchise have seem to take lately.

Oof, that slightly broken English that I corrected.

As for what you brought up, um, DB & DBZ has never featured a lot of female characters, particularly in the main character roles. For the longest time, the only major female characters were Bulma & Chichi. Launch didn't even last passed the last arc of the first series before Toriyama dropped her. Then 18 was added 2/3 of the way through Z & Videl in the last arc. Super only added 3 female characters of note with Vados, Kale, & Caulifla. Bulla was also born in Super, but she has yet to develop & Pan still has a ways to go as well. The only other characters of note are Fasha from the Bardock special, which was Toei original &, thus, not canon, & Gine, who only got a minor appearance in Super: Broly & Minus.

FighterZ added Android 21, who isn't actually canon. Same as Xenoverse with Towa. Hell, technically this game is adding Bonyu as a Ginyu Force member.

I don't know where you've gotten this idea the the majority of the characters, even in the new material, aren't male, but it's true. They are. That's a fact. And if you expect more major female characters, minus the one they got Toeiyama to design just for this game like FighterZ that was started with Dragon Ball Online, in a game that's only seeming to adapt Z material, I don't know what to say. That's one of the weirdest things to expect at this point with a game like this.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.
