Dragon Ball FighterZ Closed Beta Begins September 16, Sign-Ups Delayed to August

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment has announced the closed beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ officially begins on Saturday, September 16, 2017 on the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One. The closed beta will be open for a very short period of time, only being open for specific intervals during the open period, until it closes just a few days later on Monday, September 18.

The sign-ups for the beta have been delayed, however. Originally, it was announced sign-ups would begin on July 26, but they have been rescheduled to Tuesday, August 22, 2017. A location for the closed beta sign-ups has not yet been announced. The reason for the delayed sign-ups are the volume of excitement and enthusiasm surrounding the closed beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Bandai Namco Entertainment is working on bolstering their systems to ensure the closed beta registration and selection process can accept the volume of anticipated sign-ups.

The closed beta registration delay only affects Europe and the Americas. The Japanese closed beta registration is now open. Players just have to download a free application ticket from the Japanese PlayStation store for a chance to play the closed beta. A Japanese PlayStation account is required to do so. Depending on the number of sign-ups, players will then be selected from a lottery, with an e-mail sent to those who are randomly selected to participate. The Japanese closed beta will also begin on September 16 and end on September 18.

The Dragon Ball FighterZ closed beta will allow players to enjoy some basic lobby features and online battle. There will have nine playable characters. It has not yet been announced which nine characters will be in the closed beta, however, the belief is that it will be the nine characters confirmed thus far in the final version of the game – Goku, Vegeta, Teen Gohan, Krillin, Piccolo, Future Trunks, Frieza, Cell, and Buu.

As we learn more about Dragon Ball FighterZ and the Dragon Ball FighterZ beta, we hope to let you know right here on Saiyan Island!

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a 3-vs-3 team battle fighting game in development by Arc System Works, the same developer as the acclaimed Guilty Gear fighting game franchise. Dragon Ball FighterZ delivers an explosive, action-packed game that combines classic 2D fighting with advanced 3D character models that look and feel as if they are straight out of the Dragon Ball series. 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.

  • Aalon

    Gay.

  • David Rivera Castro

    Is this like Budokai 3 ?

  • SSJTrunks

    No its a 2D fighter and its way more technical.

  • dbz

    k.

  • Túlio Godoi

    F*CK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙁

  • Michael Graham Jr

    no its like super dbz arcade game

  • Aquan Belk

    *spams Kamehameha*

  • No one Knows

    I have told everyone this game is 2D in combat like Street Fighters, MvC; but some people doubt and disagree with me, they are idiots.

    No, this is exactly like Street Fighters or MvC series. No turn to side or sidestep like Budokai or Tekken.

    Only 2.5D happens if you perform “Finish” moves or summon an ally to attack in scenes, like MvC3’s “Finish” moves.

  • No one Knows

    No! You got all wrong and mixed up! Super DBZ is PS2, not arcade game. WTF?!

    Super DBZ is Tekken style in 2.5D.

    This game is like Street Fighters or MvC. Side scrolling 2D in combats, nothing more.

  • No one Knows

    Yes, exactly.

  • No one Knows

    Yeah I know. Not much to do there besides ‘Kamehameha’ waves/blasts all the times. How boring. I don’t think it’s potential that much.

    It’s only copy and paste; repeating.

    This will probably be short lived.

  • No one Knows

    Maybe only good weeks to some months to play before retiring. I only see the game is small with some transformations and limits.

    Xenoverse series beat DBFZ due to potential and creativity and long period.

  • Paul Watson

    U Forgot The Combos, lol.

  • Tyler Batchelor

    Super Dragon Ball Z (超ドラゴンボールZ) is a cel-shaded 3D fighting video game, based on the manga and anime of Dragon Ball written by Akira Toriyama. It was originally released in Japanese (December 22, 2005) and European (2006) arcades running on System 246 hardware, and later for the PlayStation 2.

  • Tyler Batchelor

    arcades

    Suprise there isn’t any DBS spoilers out yet this week!

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    Super DBZ was an arcade game before it was ported to the PS2.

  • Ahtma ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵂᵃʳᶜʰᶦᵉᶠ

    Xenoverse is garbage as a fighting game. As an RPG action game, it’s okay, but it fails on nearly all fronts as a viable fighting game. FighterZ looks to usurp MvC: Infinite in the fighting game scene, this almost certainly guarantees its success.

  • NinetalesCommander

    That banner looks like Shenron is moving in to eat Goku.

  • SOMEONEWHOSDISSAPOINTED

    Im sorry but Thor: Ragnaork just CAN’T be 100 minutes long, especially when you said among the several deleted scenes lie some great ones, then I don’t see any logical reason why you would not include them

    ”Movies don’t have to be three hours long”, Okay but the MCU films can’t be just ONE hour long you retarded motherfucker, Ragnarok signifies the extinction of the whole Asgardian culture, that aside from dealing with the Goddess of Death, Hela and recruiting a team to stop them, packing all that up into an hour will just make the film feel rushed and non-stopped, sometimes people need a break to take some fresh air among the action

    The limited runtime will also provide lack of character development, which is something all good films need to be full of, and it will fail to give the menace of Ragnarok a real depth and sense of threat, it will just make it seem açlike something else to deal of when its something close to an apocalypse

    You’ve been doing an excellent job with this film so far, so don’t fucks it up you stupid ashole

    DBS EPISODE 105
    SSW GOKU, OH THE TERROR OF THE TRUE SAIYAN GOD!

  • Error404

    Angry much?

  • Error404

    It’s like Guilty Gear. What’s so hard to understand? Just say it’s Guilty Gear but replace the characters with DBZ characters.

  • Dbz Lover

    I like Xenoverse and Fighters Z 😉

  • Mugetsu a’k’a SS4 Gohan

    What?!?!??!!!!?

  • Linger

    2.5D just means the game plays like a 2D fighter but the models are 3D.So no those people who disagree with you aren’t idiots.

  • SOMEONEWHOSDISSAPOINTED

    Justified

  • Stanley Owusu Kwabi VII

    No, spoilers please

  • PurexedSolitude;

    100 minutes is an hour and 40 just shy of 2.

    It’s not ideal, but I guess it’s doable.

  • Rojai

    SFV needs to die quickly

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Wait it didn’t?

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Who would you want in this game

  • Michael Graham Jr

    no it started out as an arcade game

  • Rojai

    They just released this Hugo wannabe called Abigail

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Sigh

  • Gamrage

    Master Roshi. He wasn’t included in DBXV because he didn’t have a method of flying outside of the use of his spinning turtle. I have a feeling they can do him justice in Dragon Ball Fighter Z.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    That would be very interesting

  • SOMEONEWHOSDISSAPOINTED

    Not for one of Marvel’s most promising films, and not for one with stakes that threaten an entire population, aside from dealing with a Goddess of Death, aside from dealing with a gladiator tournament

    Its gonna make it all feel rushed, they can make it 20 minutes longer with scenes than can serve as calmer transitions that can help freshen the story or expand it, aside from developing characters

    This movie might be among the best of 2017

  • Yomi

    Lol, lies.

  • No one Knows

    You. Are. Gonna. Die. >:(

  • No one Knows

    It almost made my soul leave when I accidentally read Nameless’ comment. But I read your comment, I felt relieved slightly and my soul stayed. Close call.

    Thanks, Yomi.

  • No one Knows

    Yes, I actually agree with you about Xenoverse’s genre. I don’t consider Xenoverse as a real fight. An RPG action game, yes; and also it’s a mixed game including a fighting style, probably arcade style.

    I know Xenoverse and DBFZ don’t mix cuz they are two completely different things.

  • No one Knows

    I said Xenoverse beats DBFZ is because Namco has been worked on Xenoverse for few years and added a lot of stuff. I feel that’s a lot.

    Maybe I’m too early judging on DBFZ because I have seen videos on YouTube. I felt it’s meh to me; but maybe surprises show us when it comes out next year.

    I’m not trying to be into MvC: Infinite now yet. Lol I don’t want big spoilers until I get the game in Fall. Lol

  • No one Knows

    I will be a judge on both games.

  • No one Knows

    No, that’s not what they said in the past. They actually thought 2.5D was like Tekken or Budokai series by looking at videos. It’s not about the models.

    Clearly, you haven’t read their comments.

  • No one Knows

    3D models have nothing to do with 2.5D. The type of models don’t matter. It’s about the area and the movements. Do you understand?

  • Linger

    No.It’s called 2.5D because it stands between 2D and 3D in the sense that the game plays like a 2D game but the models are 3D.

  • Linger

    2.5D is like Tekken and the Budokai series.

  • No one Knows

    Yeah, that’s because you had information checked online. That arcade games were in Japan only, originally. It was not even emphasized at all.

    Anyone who has been lived in America and gotten the game in America; would remember the game as an original game.

  • No one Knows

    Well, either I forgot or didn’t know. That depends on where you live and get to play before you know the origins.

    I only had the game for PS2 when it came out years ago. That’s how I mostly know.

  • No one Knows

    It’s like MvC. What’s so hard to understand? Just say it’s MvC but replaced the characters with DBZ characters.

  • No one Knows

    Big deal.

  • No one Knows

    I saw it fully on Wikipedia. I already explained in my each comments. Still, I’m not wrong. Super DBZ for arcades in Japan and PS2 in North America and other country is not a BIG difference because they are both same.

  • No one Knows

    Oh yeah. I thought it’s obvious because I assumed everyone already knew about combos in the game. That’s why I didn’t put “combos” there. Oh well. Lol

  • No one Knows

    But I think I am too early judging cuz of videos I watched and felt meh. Maybe I think I have to wait until the game comes out next year.

  • No one Knows

    I just commented about a spinning turtle on gogoanime weeks ago.

    Yeah, why not. It may help me feel nostalgic like old’ good times with DBZ: Ultimate Battle 22.

  • No one Knows

    What about you?

  • Error404

    Exactly my boy. You catch on quick ;).

  • No one Knows

    I have a weird idea but… Broly/Kale as a transformer, as one?

    Like, LSS Broly with traditional moves and Saiyan’s true form/’LSS’ Kale with different moves.

    When you feel like you want to use ‘LSS’ Kale, transform Broly into ‘LSS’ Kale. If you want Broly, then transform again to go back, like switches.

    Like Freeze to Golden Freeze.

    So, I don’t mind having Broly/Kale in the game for a new change.

    What do you think?

  • No one Knows

    Oddly, seems Abigail received positive reviews from fans.

  • No one Knows

    Or maybe that’s when Goku secretly learns “Super Dragon Fist” from Shenron?

    Like in the movie, SS3 Goku vs Hirudegarn.

    Shenron probably goes through Goku’s body in order to give Goku a new power.

    Cool, isn’t it?

  • Yomi

    lel, no prob.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Seeing as they pretty much shown what saga they will be including into the game, I would like Raditz, Nappa, Tien, Yamcha (just for the laughs) maybe Chiaochu (spelling)

    Zarbon, Ginyu, Gilda, Recoom,

    18, 17, 16, Hercule.

    Ultimate Gohan, Debruia, Kid buu, evil buu,

    Beerus and whis

    And feel in with movie character’s like Bardock, Cooler, Broly, the ghost with the evil junk and was red name start with an H

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Wait you want them as skins right?

  • No one Knows

    Lol You made me laugh. Lol

  • No one Knows

    I meant they actually thought “Dragonball FighterZ” was like Tekken or Budokai series by looking at videos.

  • No one Knows

    Yes, it is but Dragonball FighterZ isn’t.

  • No one Knows

    You figure out when you play. You need experiences in order to understand properly, and understand the differences between 2D, 2.5D and 3D.

    I repeat: it’s not about the models.

  • Linger

    But it is about the models.

  • No one Knows

    Yes, as skins.

  • No one Knows

    It is about the movements, areas, cameras, controls.

  • Linger

    No 2.5D literally just means the game plays like a 2D fighters but the models are 3D.

    I don’t know where you got this weird idea of what 2.5D is but it’s wrong.

  • No one Knows

    Describe the game plays. That’s what I have been saying.

    2.5D is described how the game goes.

    It specially shows you the between 2D and 3D in the angles (which is 2.5D) in the scenes only BUT you CAN’T move to sides to avoid attacks.

    It doesn’t matter if models are 3D or 2D.

  • No one Knows

    If you think this is a misconception, then it’s you. Play them all and differences through your experiences, not ideas by looking at them.

    Wish you a good luck.

  • No one Knows

    Oh yeah, I like H. He was in Raging Blast 2. Lol

    Yes, probably some of them would be in. Beerus and Whis have to be there.

  • Linger

    From Wikipedia

    “Two and a half dimensional (shortened to 2.5D, known alternatively as three-quarter perspective and pseudo-3D) is a term used to describe either 2D graphical projections and similar techniques used to cause images or scenes to simulate the appearance of being three-dimensional (3D) when in fact they are not, or gameplay in an otherwise three-dimensional video game that is restricted to a two-dimensional plane or has a virtual camera with a fixed angle.

  • No one Knows

    Bad news that is there will be 9 or 10 characters in the final game. The last one as the 10th character is unknown. Maybe it’s Beerus.

    I feel like wasting of time because when they add the last one, leave the game for months until early 2018.

    5 months or more to not to bother that game that much?

  • No one Knows

    I already know about all 2D to 3D for years.

    I have been worked on them, made and played them before; and I’m not going to bother explaining again. Details are already explained there.

    Again, wish you a good luck.

    Bye.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Cool

  • Michael Graham Jr

    just admit u didnt know and move on man, i played the arcade game in a bowling alley and it was awesome back then

  • Linger

    You know if you just admitted that you’re wrong it would be much better for both of us.It’s not like you lose anything by losing this argument.

  • No one Knows

    Huh?! You are just inexperienced, illogical and delusional. Probably, you are misunderstood based on wrong reasons or assumptions.

    It’s you who can’t get over with. It’s over. There is nothing I could help you to understand. You are just limited.

    Get helps, get experiences and move on or stay cuckoo, eat Cocoa Puffs and try to be a winner ‘warrior.’

    Peace out.

  • No one Knows

    Huh? There was no arcade game for that because it didn’t exist back there, genius. Geez.

  • No one Knows

    Not every state have same things.

  • Rojai

    Ha nice joke, have you seen the dislikes on his trialer?

  • Michael Graham Jr

    back when, cause i never gave you a date
