Bandai Namco today announced that Dragon Ball FighterZ will be available earlier than anticipated. While the game was originally meant to hit platforms in February 2018, it will now release on January 26th.
According to the press release, the game’s Story Mode will surprise and delight fans with the LINK System. This system will allow them to embody different characters, share their minds and even discuss with them while they live in the same body. The story mode will feature 3 different parts, and will allow players to experience 3 different perspectives each offering different details and secrets about the story.
Players will first play the Super Warriors Arc from the perspective of the Saiyans, followed by the Super Villain Arc from the perspective of the enemies and finally the Android Arc from the perspective of the Androids. By taking part in different fighting combinations included in these 3 chapters, players will be able to level up their characters and get a full understanding of the amazing DRAGON BALL FighterZ scenario. The story mode map will also surprise players by allowing tactical moves as you will have different options for their next destination. This strategical choice will have an impact on fighting abilities in future fights.
