Dragon Ball FighterZ Update Set to Add Co-Op, Monthly Competition

Bandai Namco has detailed an upcoming update to its most recent fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ. The free update, which arrives May 9, will add in two new features, as well as improvements to the replay mode and other various gameplay tweaks.

First up is the addition of a brand new co-op mode. Party Battle will allow up to three players to team up and take down bosses. On top of that, the game will be host to a monthly competition where players can fight and collect points for their respective Z-Union. There are a huge amount of smaller gameplay changes outlined in the post, from changes to Training Mode to individual character balancing. Self-damaging moves no longer affect the combo damage displayed, Goku Black's medium and heavy versions of the Fierce God Kick no longer locks down even a knocked out opponent, and the damage scaling of Vegeta(SSGSS) several Ki-Blast moves has been matched with a single Ki-Blast. Head over to the update for full details.

 
 

Dragon Ball FighterZ is the latest fighting game based on the iconic anime series. The game launched earlier this year to critical success. Many have since praised the game for its impressive graphical fidelity, with it looking very much like the TV show. Players can recreate iconic moments from the show using a slew of characters, from Goku's first fight with Frieza to Gohan's battle with Bu. Dragon Ball FighterZ is not to be confused with the Dragon Ball Xenoverse series, which presents battles which take place on more of a 3D scale, as opposed to a more traditional fighting game design.

Be sure to check our review of the game, and stay tuned for more updates as we get them.
