Trunks Blasts into Dragon Ball FighterZ, Closed Beta Announced for PS4

As previously reported, Trunks has joined the Dragon Ball FighterZ character roster – and now we’ve got a full trailer of the warrior from the future in action. Sign up’s for the game’s closed beta will be available on July 26.

Although it remains to be unofficial, the very own producer of the game named Tomoko Hiroki confirmed the possibility. Hopefully more Dragon Ball Super characters are included! And as it turns out, a Nintendo Switch version is also possible, though its release is dependent on the success of another game.

“In terms of the Switch version, we’re now working on Xenoverse 2 for the Switch, so we want players to first go there, and then we can talk about FighterZ“.

For one, Xenoverse 2 is a much different game than FighterZ. According to Hiroki, the “Z” was attached to the end of the title because of its strong connection with the franchise and, with it being the last letter of the title, evokes a “last” and “ultimate” feeling for the game. So in turn, Dragon Ball FighterZ would likely arrive to the console after that. There are plans for various changes to stages as matches go on but no plans to implement cross-play between platforms. Unlike other fighting games based on anime series, such as Naruto and other Dragon Ball properties, Dragon Ball FighterZ will maintain the 2D anime art style.
