Dragon Ball Fighter Z Will Not Feature Console Crossplay

The 2D fighting game's producer also clarified how to pronounce its title.

At EVO 2017, Bandai Namco showed off a brand new trailer for the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ and announced a beta.

Trunks is the son of another of the most popular characters of the Dragon Ball manga and anime series, the Sayan prince Vegeta, and of Bulma, that has been part of the cast of the franchise basically since the very beginning.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will be released in early 2018 for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Players will be able to select from a roster of nine playable characters, which will include Trunks. That is, of course, if Goku, Gohan, and Majin Buu shown in the character portraits at the end of the trailer are included in the roster. More details on the closed beta will be revealed shortly, said publisher Namco Bandai.

That's an idea that was presented to Arc System Work's Tomoko Hiroki, when he was quizzed on the possibility of Dragon Ball Fighter Z. Short answer?

Some fans may take issue with Hiroki's statement regarding a Switch version of Dragon Ball FighterZ, but to be fair, Bandai Namco isn't the only company taking a "wait and see" approach with Nintendo's new console.

The three-on-three fighting game will feature Sparking Burst abilities that will function as the last resort for players who find themselves backed into a corner as well as beam struggles.

The stages will also undergo some changes while the fighters are duking it out.
