Richmond, LONDON – 22nd January, 2018: At the end of the week, the most anticipated fighting game will be launched on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and PC. Fans and newcomers will be able to join endless spectacular fights with all powerful fighters! BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment today can reveal the DRAGON BALL FighterZ launch trailer and more!

Android 21 joins DRAGON BALL FighterZ with multiple unique Ultimate Attacks! Supervised by Akira Toriyama, Android 21 has an important role in the DRAGON BALL FighterZ story mode. She is a mysterious scientist known for having the same knowledge as the Androids creator Dr. Gero. Connected with Android 16 her background is quite vague. What are her real intentions? Is she an ally? With her Tasting Cut Ultimate Attack, Android 21 not only drains the opponent’s energy but gains their attacks! The more you know about playing other characters, the more advantageous this attack will be! Her Meteor Ultimate Attack will allow her to shoot out a beam that changes the opponent into a cake!

                                

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment are also pleased to share details about DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 as new playable characters from the Tournament of Power in Dragon Ball Super join the fight. Jiren is a member of the Pride Trooper and the strongest warrior from Universe 11. He has special moves such as Mediation and a Power Rush which no other character can contain!  Android 17 has a new ability which allows him to absorb attacks as well as a brand new fighting style.

Free content will be also available in DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 including a new battle system, new avatar skills and new special costumes for Dragon Ball characters! Limit Burst is the new battle system that can be used once per battle. Players can dramatically increase their ability temporally depending on the number of members in the enemy team. The type of boost will also differ based on the fighter. Some characters may power up their team members whilst some may lower the status of the opponent.

This free update will also bring a new avatar Awaken Skill with the "Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan" (SSGSS) where players will be able to feel the power of the Gods and be transformed to the infamous "Blue Form"! Finally new swimsuits will be available for Android 18 and Videl. Let’s get prepared for the summer season!

DRAGON BALL FighterZ will be launched 26th January, 2018 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 is available now on PlayStation4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. To find out more information regarding titles from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment please visit:
