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).
