Earlier this week, Arc System Works and Bandai Namco released the latest update for the superb brawler, Dragon Ball FighterZ. Alongside this, was the launch of the new paid DLC fighter Goku , based on the much-younger looking version featured in the Dragon Ball GT anime series. Now, in a completely unexpected reveal, the last fighter for...
Even more reasons to join the battle
One of the standout brawlers on the Switch right now is Dragon Ball FighterZ. The Arc System Works release first arrived on the platform in 2018 and has improved over time with a number of free content updates and DLC character releases. The latest free content update unlocks seasonal gacha, a new course for the...
First free update also out
At the start of this month, Bandai Namco and Dimps Corporation released Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission on the Switch. As "good" as the game was, it's been somewhat overshadowed in recent weeks by various other releases. In an effort to remind everyone the latest entry in the Dragon Ball digital card game is now...
Young at heart
Arc System Works and Bandai Namco are adding another Goku variant to the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster. This information comes from the latest monthly issue of Japanese manga magazine V-Jump. This time around, it's a much younger-looking Goku, based on the character from the Dragon Ball GT series. Son Goku (GT) will be added as a...

Publisher Bandai Namco has taken to Twitter recently to share the game's pre-order goodies. If you do decide to...

Jiren and Videl join the battle!
If there's one other fighting game on the Nintendo Switch worth checking out besides Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it's arguably Dragon Ball FighterZ. The game is the definitive Dragon Ball fighting game, with an all-star cast and ongoing patches to ensure battles continue to be as fierce, fast and frantic as possible...
Jiren and Videl arrive at the end of the month
As previously teased, Bandai Namco was going to officially announce the second season of new fighters coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ at today's championship finals. However, the trailer with this updated content accidentally premiered before the official announcement, taking everyone by surprise. Jiren...
During Bandai Namco’s “Dragon Ball Games Super Showcase” live stream earlier this week, we found out a second season of characters for Dragon Ball FighterZ would be officially announced at the World Tour Finals, taking place on 26th and 27th January. Following this, Bandai Namco’s official Twitter account
Plus new Dragon Ball Z action RPG in the works
It seems we did not have to wait after all for the official reveal later this month since the following tweet most certainly confirms a second season of characters DLC is on the way to Dragon Ball FighterZ. While there are several candidates available to pick from the Universe 11 team, our top...
Tune into the finals for more details
During Bandai Namco's "Dragon Ball Games Super Showcase" live stream featuring Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki, the host of the event Dmitryi Khlynin enquired about a possible second season of fighters for the game This was Hiroki's reply: "Yes. I really want to say it, but please wait until the...
It's over 9000!
The month of April just got a little bit busier, with the Bandai Namco's "Dragon Ball Games Super Showcase" live stream confirming Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission will arrive on the Nintendo Switch here in the west on 5th April. As previously revealed, Japan will receive the game on 4th April. This Dragon Ball themed arcade...
What are you saiyan?
Dragon Ball FighterZ is easily one of the best fighting games currently available on the Nintendo Switch. Unlike many other third-party ports, this one makes no technical comprises. About the only downside is the fact a number of characters have been locked behind a paywall from day one. Even then, this content has still added...
The power of cards
For a game about digital card battles, Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission looks rather dramatic based on the new six-minute trailer Bandai Namco released at Jump Festa 2019. This second official clip about the Dimps developed title runs through the basics of the game in Japanese while showcasing plenty of new footage. If you...
Still waiting on a western announcement
V-Jump continues to drip-feed information about the upcoming Dragon Ball title for Nintendo Switch. Following the news earlier this week the digital card game would support online battles, the Twitter account for the Japanese manga magazine has now revealed
In card form, of course
The latest issue of V-Jump has revealed new details about Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission for the Nintendo Switch. Published by Bandai Namco and developed by Dimps Corporation, the digital card game will support online battles, matching players against opponents of an equal skill level. There'll also be "real...
Signs of a western release
Towards the end of October, an issue of V-Jump revealed Bandai Namco would be releasing another Dragon Ball title on the Switch in 2019. This one is a bit different from the usual offerings, as it's actually a card game by Dimps Corporation. At the time of the reveal, there was no mention of a release outside of Japan. In...
Before arriving on the Nintendo Switch in September, Dragon Ball FighterZ was released on multiple other platforms at the start of the year. Bandai Namco has since worked on bolstering the fighting roster by adding in DLC characters such as Cooler and Android 17. S
The ultimate card battle
Last week, the latest issue of V-Jump revealed Bandai Namco would be bringing yet another Dragon Ball game to the Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, this one's a bit different from the usual release. It's a card game by Dimps Corporation, requiring players to think about every move rather than aimlessly mash buttons in...
Video footage included
Update: Cooler and Android 17 will join the fight on Nintendo Switch from 28th September. Take a look at the latest free update trailer above. Original Story: The former villain and twin brother of Android 18 will soon be added to Bandai Namco's hit game, Dragon Ball FighterZ. According to a reveal in the latest issue of...
"I would like to show our appreciation"
Bandai Namco's Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki has released a video message on behalf of the development team thanking fans for requesting a Switch version of the game. Arriving later this month on the 28th, Hiroki said it was these ongoing requests that allowed the team to make this...
Featuring characters and more
Bandai Namco have been revealing quite a lot of Dragon Ball video game content as of late. In the latest reveal, the focus is on both Dragon Ball FighterZ and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. The five-minute trailer above shows Cooler - Frieza's lesser-known brother - in action for the very fi
Game releases next month
Bandai Namco's Dragon Ball FighterZ releases at the end of next month. Having been able to experience the game's beta a few weeks ago, there's not much left to do now but wait for the big release. To tide you over until then is a new four-minute Japanese trailer of the game, highlighting all of the awesome features including...
No Saiyans for Smash?
While Goku is busy readying himself for the upcoming release of Dragon Ball FighterZ on the Switch, fans of the popular anime character have supposedly been discussing the possibility of him making a cameo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. According to Comicbook.com, Goku's English voice actor Sean Schemm
Should we be surprised?
Update: The servers appear to be back online. Before the launch of Dragon Ball FighterZ at the end of September, Bandai Namco is this week testing out the game’s online infrastructure. As previously announced, an open beta for the game was going live today to stress test the game and also give players a...
Frieza's big bro
EVO 2018 has fully delivered in terms of fighting game announcements. We've been informed about the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct, saw a new trailer revealing the DLC characters in BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and found out Windjammers was on its way to the Switch. Bandai Namco's cont
A friendly fighter
Fighting games aren't always the most accessible. Thankfully, the team behind the upcoming Switch release, Dragon Ball FighterZ, is making an active effort to buck this trend. During an interview with Eurogamer, the producer of Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tomoko Hiroki, spoke about how this particular fighter appeals to a wider...
We heard yesterday Bandai Namco would be holding an open beta test for Dragon Ball FIghterZ in August, and now it's also revealed a brief glimpse of the two new fighters coming to the game. Base Goku and Base Vegeta will be available in the other versions of FighterZ early August, and presumably
What you Saiyan?
It was rumoured earlier this year, but today's E3 2018 Nintendo Direct confirmed what we all wanted to hear - Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming to Switch. The critically-acclaimed brawler made quite an impression on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and now it's the turn of Nintendo fans to see what the fuss is all about. Amazingly, Nintendo...
Sega's former mascot wasn't designed to fight Mario at all
Remember Alex Kidd? If you're a younger gamer than you'd be forgiven for answering in the negative. Sega's former mascot had his brief moment of fame during the 8-bit era but was unceremoniously swept aside when Sonic arrived in the early '90s, and has been relegated to a bit-player in the...
Or even a Nintendo DS one, for that matter
Dragon Ball FighterZ is pretty special, but it's not coming to Switch - not yet, anyway. While Bandai Namco continues to mull over the potential of a Switch port, fans have been digging into the options of the PC version to come up with some interesting findings - one of which relates to scalable graphics
Remember motion controls? Well they're back! In Dragon Ball form!
Bandai Namco has released a new live-action trailer for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, which launches on Switch on 22nd September. The game - which is already available on PS4, Xbox One and PC - features characters from the famous manga and anime series, and on Switch will offer local...
Dramatic battles on the go
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was one of the earliest third-party retail games to be confirmed for the Nintendo Switch, though firm release details have taken a while to emerge. Bandai Namco has now confirmed that the title will head to both North America and Europe on 22nd September. In terms of Switch-specific features...
Horsepower isn't the issue
The world certainly isn't short of Dragon Ball games, but Dragon Ball FighterZ - unveiled at E3 - certainly stands out from the rest. Developed by Arc System Works and sporting a team-based combat system not entirely unlike that seen in Capcom's "vs" series of titles, the PS4, Xbox One and PC title looks set to...
Local play and, um, optional motion controls
Back in January a number of titles featured in the Nintendo Switch presentation from Japan, notably in a sizzle reel of upcoming games. One of these was Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, and we now have a better idea of when that game will arrive. Bandai Namco in Europe has confirmed an Autumn / Fall release...
Boosts Nintendo Switch hardware sales, too
We've been awaiting the usual Media Create Japanese chart results, but due to Golden Week in Japan the data hasn't been forthcoming as yet. As we've had requests for what information is available, we've picked up the Famitsu magazine charts from earlier in the week to tide us over. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe,...
There have been many Dragon Ball games over the years, and one universal truth exists: they seem to get better as time goes by. Early efforts on the SNES, Mega Drive, PlayStation and Saturn left a bad taste in the mouths of series fans, but lately Bandai Namco's Dragon Ball Xenoverse sub-series has redressed the balance neatly...
Here's hoping they'll come with the Western version on day one
It can be hard to predict, at times, which enticing and notable releases will make it out of Japan to the West. It was certainly good news, then, when Bandai Namco recently confirmed Dragon Ball Fusions for a 13th December release in North America; it'll arrive in Europe sometime in...
Better late than never
Dragon Ball Fusions arrived not too long ago in Japan, and we've been admiring its slightly wacky trailers and footage. Recent ratings and listings pointed to localisation for this one, and now it's official - it'll arrive on 3DS in North America on 13th December, and February 2017 in Europe. In case you're unaware, this...
Is it our turn?
Dragon Ball Fusions is a title we've followed with some curiosity out of Japan. The latest 3DS title utilising the popular IP offers turn-based gameplay, but a key hook is the ability to fuse characters together for interesting results. So far it's arrived in Japan but there's been little solid indication of a Western release, but...
3DS games lock out top five
The Media Create chart results are out in Japan, and they make happy reading for Nintendo and an assortment of 3DS game publishers. Titles on the portable hold the top five software positions, with hardware sales also showing a modest boost. Starting with software, Etrian Odyssey V has made its debut at number one - its...
Also goes in-depth with Etrian Odyssey's races and classes
While last week was packed full of Nintendo news, Famitsu took a step back this week with only a handful of Nintendo games featured. However, they're some big ones; an in-depth preview and a review for Etrian Odyssey V and a review for Dragon Ball Fusion on the 3DS make this week's edition...
Out in Japan soon
We've had a handful of exciting Dragon Ball releases in recent years, with Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden being a decent entry on the 3DS. The next portable arrival in Japan is going to be Dragon Ball Fusions, which is out soon. Though we don't have Western release information yet, it's interesting to see the direction this one's...
It looks... interesting
The Dragon Ball franchise is big business for Bandai Namco and its partners, appearing in various forms across multiple platforms. In August the next 3DS entry will make its mark in Japan - Dragon Ball Fusions. It's an RPG and, as the name makes clear, allows players to fuse characters together in strange combinations, while...
Bandai Namco keeps busy
Bandai Namco isn't shy of work, churning out a lot of titles for its own franchises and in partnerships with other companies. Its diverse offerings keep coming, as a 3DS RPG called Dragon Ball: Project Fusion is confirmed for release in Japan in 2016. It's a huge franchise, and the core detail of a 'fusion between Goku and...
It's over 9000!
There have been reports suggesting that Namco Bandai may be bringing the arcade title, Dragon Ball Heroes, to the 3DS in Japan: it's a Japanese card-based arcade game, originally released in late 2010 and developed by Dimps. The 3DS version will apparently be called Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission, and is said to include a...
