Dragon Ball Fighters

 

Bandai Namco has accidentally announced Dragon Ball Fighters for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms. The game is a 2.5D fighter and is expected to release worldwide in early 2018. According to producer Tomoko Hiroki, they chose to go 2.5D this time since there are some things that can only be done in that style.

The original press release revealing this information was dated June 12th, so clearly it wasn’t supposed to be revealed yet. That original document has since been taken down, but a backup of the original press release is still available online here. The official Japanese website for the game will be available here once the game is announced officially.

Dragon Ball Fighters

 

Dragon Ball Fighters features a three versus three battle system. Players must determine how well different fighters work together in order to build an effective team. The Dragon Ball series is known for “ultra high speed battles” and “flashy special moves” . The game will of course include these in some form as well.

It may look at first like Dragon Ball Fighters uses 2D animation, but they are able to shift camera angles and include things that would not be possible in pure 2D. They say that using a 2.5D style gives them a wider range of expression.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.

    This could be good (if anything it will likely be visually stunning), but with Arc System Works I’m kind of worried about Super editions an year later.
