Dragon Ball FighterZ: 10 Playable Characters in Beta, Applications Accepted in Japan

In North America and Europe, registration for the Dragon Ball FighterZ closed beta was delayed to August 22, 2017. However, in Japan, applications are now being accepted!

You can head on over to https://store.playstation.com/#!/ja-jp/cid=JP0700-CUSA09157_00-CBTET00000000000 to apply for the chance to play the Dragon Ball FighterZ closed beta on the PS4. A Japanese PlayStation Network account is required in order to apply for the closed beta. For Xbox One users in Japan, they will need to download the Xbox Insider Hub application from the Xbox Store. At the beginning of September, Bandai Namco will send a link in the Insider Hub for players to apply.

10,000 people will be invited to play the closed beta. We aren’t clear if this is 10,000 people from around the world of just 10,000 people from Japan as it was not announced. However, Bandai Namco has announced the timings in which the beta will take place. As you will see in the listing below, they are all the same time when accounting for time zone differences. In other words 2:00 AM in Pacific Standard Time (PST) is the same as 11:00 in Central Standard Time (CST) and 18:00 (which is 6:00 PM) in Japanese Standard Time (JST).

USA (PST)
1st Session* – 2:00-5:00 (Saturday)

Bandai Namco Entertainment also previously announced there would be nine playable characters in the closed beta. The latest report has the European branch of the company stating there will be more than nine while the Japanese branch says there will be 10 playable characters. It’s unclear who those 10 currently are, but the belief is nine of those will be the characters confirmed thus far in the final version of the game – Goku, Vegeta, Teen Gohan, Krillin, Piccolo, Future Trunks, Frieza, Cell, and Buu.

It will will incorporate ultra high-speed battles and various flashy moves, including Goku’s iconic Kamehameha. Dragon Ball FighterZ will be published by Bandai Namco Entertainment in early 2018.

  • Toni Enriquez

    So…any guesses as to who the 10th character is? My money is on another villain, maybe Kid Buu or Beerus.

  • No one Knows

    Yeah. I was confused and WTF when it would have 9 or 10 characters for a final version of the game. Oh well. That’s okay, and that’s understandable.

  • No one Knows

    Beerus is probably the last one.

  • Probably Yamcha.

  • FourthWaveX

    Game will have around 15-18 it DLC .
    It luck they even may Add Fusions (Gotenks and Vegito) but was a stand alone character not fusing in combat

  • FourthWaveX

    Im not seeing it…
    But Raditz and Nappa are a staple too.
    Maybe Reccome and Genyu too?

  • No one Knows

    Are you sure? DLC would be nice.

  • No one Knows

    Maybe or Tien.

  • No one Knows

    Maybe. Hard to say.

  • Michael Graham Jr

    will be gameflying this game for sure unless it 30bucks

  • Michael Graham Jr

    DLC is a given, gotta make that money baby

  • sharinganmor92

    Seeing as how blazblue had around 30 characters each with unique sets and guilty gear had over 20 id say at least 25 then dlc later

  • Error404

    You are the cancer of this society, doing no help to the developers by not buying games at full price.

  • Error404

    They have Fat Buu, they don’t need another Buu. Probably be one of the androids.

  • Otto Suwen

    U poor or just stingy?

  • Koibito888

    I love guessing who’s gonna be in this game because not everyone will get in. Like Yamcha and Tien are too basic as for what they offer to a function based fighter like this I don’t think they’ll be in, I doubt (and don’t want) the likes of Raditz or Nappa. Beerus has to be in this game but would they reveal him already?

    Like someone else said they have a Buu so I doubt Kid Buu, and honestly will the androids even be in the game?

    They covered pretty much all I think they’ll do up to Frieza Saga, Androids maybe, but if not….

    Ultimate Gohan? That’s my bet.

  • Blackdragon Story

    What are you saying,the game will be 60$ for sure.

  • The_Superior_Spider-Mon

    Crossing Fingers for these characters in DBFz whether they are dlc or not: Beerus, SSB Goku/Vegeta, Vegito Blue, Goku Black, Android 17, Android 18, Hit, Frost, Champa, Mr. Satan, Dabura, Gotenks, Jiren, Toppo, Cabba, Kale, Caulifa, Master Roshi, Tien, Kid Buu, Mystic Gohan, Zamasu

  • Michael Graham Jr

    both, not paying for that unless i know its what i want, ill buy it if its good, my sports games and most of my switch games games i bought, except arms looks to slow gonna gamefly that too before i buy it

  • Michael Graham Jr

    oh, if that was true i would have to buy every game, gamefly buys the games they dont get them free and its not like they only buy 2 copies, but thats how you feel thats cool thats your opinion. ill buy the the games i know ima play all day like sports games
