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.
