Bandai Namco had quite a lot of information to share during gamescom regarding its upcoming fighting game, Dragon Ball FighterZ. The game's brand new trailer is seen above, where we get to see the first gameplay footage of the recently revealed characters Piccolo and Krillin, as well get introduced to a couple of brand new figures that are joining the roster.
Android 16 and Android 18 are now officially confirmed as fighters in the game, with the unfortunate Android 17 being reduced to only appearing for special fighting moves performed by Android 18.
The latter half of the trailer gives us a first look at the game's story mode, which seems to follow an original storyline set apart from the source material. The Z-fighters will be going against a mysterious invading force, with the trailer showing many familiar faces falling in battle.
The game's closed beta sign-ups that were delayed back in July are finally available now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players to enter. Full details on how players can sign-up for a spot and the session schedules are available on the official Bandai Namco website here. The closed beta will take place on September 16 and 17, featuring 11 playable characters.
Moreover, Bandai Namco announced a special edition version of the game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, titled the Dragon Ball FighterZ CollectorZ Edition. Leaving the over usage of the letter Z aside, this edition includes an impressive 18cm (7in) tall Goku statue, three art boards, a copy of the game, and a steelbook case.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is slated for launch in February 2018 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Anyone who pre-orders the regular or the CollectorZ editions will receive early access to the game's open beta in January, as well as get early unlocks of Goku and Vegeta's Super Saiyan Blue versions.
