Arc System Works published a trailer last week detailing the fighting game’s campaign mode and it is awesome anime-ness and brilliance.
The backstory: A legion of super android fighters has arrived, and the warriors they mimic fall unconscious as a result. Goku, the principal fighter controlled by the user, pushes through three story arcs to find the truth behind this incursion and those responsible for it.
The cloned enemies and a squad of new androids are being led by a new villain, Android 21, who seems to be the one behind it all. The story is wrapped in all of the crackling energy, power vocals and motion blur one would expect of an epic anime.
Dragon Ball FighterZ, a new announcement at E3 2017, finally melds a fighting game with Dragon Ball’s signature, super-intense anime style. It’s launching January 26, 2018 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
