This one will be more 2.5D fighting

coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC

developed by Arc System Works and due out worldwide in early 2018.

So what, is this Budokai 3 with Super elements?

Sounds like a downgrade to me. stick out tongue

More like it's closer to an actual fighter when made by the people behind Guilty Gear and BlazBlue. DBS content doesn't affect the quality of a game for me and others as it might for you. =p I just take it the same way I have GT content in games; something from an inferior successor series, but nice to have as fanservice for extra game content.

GT's had less and less presence in games now though of course. Worst case I saw of it was when a dev or someone behind Xenoverse 2 was asked about why they didn't have SSJ4 as a form for created saiyan characters, and they responded with "it would've been too difficult to have all that different body fur for different saiyans" or something along those lines, so they just later had SSJ4 as an aesthetic costume instead. Sooo hard, and Namco has even less excuse not to have Blue or God form for created saiyans when they had the golden form for Frieza race characters, but what do they give created saiyans as a new thing for Xenoverse 2? Oh, SSJ3.

Anyway, not sure what to really expect for this game here, aside from being a breath of fresh air.

It's made by Arc System Works,, so that alone is worth considering.

Also the older games for the Snes were 2D

Hyper Dimension was the best one out of the lot

go check it out on a emulator, Only way to for those games.

Ridley_Prime
The SNES ones weren't released outside of Japan (it was before Dragon Ball or anime in general became huge in the West), so I had to play those on emulator at the time. Don't remember Hyper Dimension by this point but as far as 2D's, I was partial to Supersonic Warriors (at least the first one) on GBA which can also be emulated elsewhere...

But yeah, compared to all of Namco's 3D Dragon Ball game series, the 2D's are a rarity by this point which is why this new Fighters game is already cherished by some.

Goku better go Super Saiyan God

Looks sexay graphics are better then in any DB game so far. Supers look awesome.
Add God Broly, Janemba, Super 13, Hit, Rose and Im in...

Ridley_Prime
This'll have a closed beta during the summer apparently.

Looking like it's going to be a really good game

It's uncanny how DBF utterly destroyed MvCI.

Just going by the visual comparisons there as pointed out, MvCI looks like a joke compared to DB Fighters. Capcom rushed the game out which also resulted in its lackluster roster that has also been panned. Hopefully they learn from this, after getting their asses handed to them by a Dragon Ball game of all things.

Ridley_Prime
I retweeted this, because Dragon Ball Fighters needs to be on the Switch!

Switch already has Xenoverse 2, so why not?

Ridley_Prime
Eh, I like MvC3 too, having gotten a current gen port of it recently, but it's hard to really compare to like a real Dragon Ball fighter which is a different beast. Infinite just deserved the ridicule and backlash it got for being the rushed mess and arguably unfinished game that it was (as it currently is at least).

Yeah, no doubt Capcom should be kicking themselves when they look at this game and then their own.

For a DBZ fan like me, this has been a dream come true. I'm really happy that at least one of these fighting game companies made a Dragon Ball Z game with this kind of gameplay. I remember when I first saw X-Men vs. Street Fighter at the arcades and one of the first things that came to mind was Dragon Ball Z. Long energy blasts? Super jumps? Air combos? Close ups before supers? Background changing (in MvC, that is)? I always thought that that kind of gameplay would be perfect for a DBZ game and now we're FINALLY getting it.

EPIC!!!

Hit and Rose confirmed?

Ridley_Prime
Hit and Goku Black might be a bit of a reach. I don't know, it's anyone's guess right now, but still wondering about Beerus... and whether Goku having SSJB Kaioken there was really necessary.

Estacado
Hit and Rose gotta make it if Blue is in. Also its nice to see Vegeta beatdown move in the game (the one he did on Black) and Goku's ultimate is what he did againt Hit when they battled for the 1st time. Kinda sad how Goku's ultra looks much cooler then Vegeta's. Btw cant recall what scene is Vegeta's ultra is from?

They really need a Create a Wrestler function, so I can make Superman and beat down the entire cast.

Watch the worst characters in the series become the Sentinel/Magneto/Cable/Storm... (Someone like adult Gohan or Yamcha..)

The internet instantly fell in love with the newly introduced Android 21... 18's gonna have some serious competition.

Estacado
Well..... I didnt. stick out tongue

Ridley_Prime
The internet and DB fanbase at large in general loves her, was the point. Not sure why an Android would need glasses though but interesting design nonetheless.

And Yamcha definitely looks fun to play as here, but Tien... was more underwhelmed by. May as well be bottom tier to coincide with his treatment in Super, the only U7 fighter who didn't get a Toriyama handjob.

One word.

BROLY!!!

Imagining the shitstorm reactions if we got Kale instead of him...

LMAO!

I hope not. This game, unlike the unholy abomination bearing the DB name, actually looks like a worthy addition to the franchise.

Fusion was pretty awful in Budokai 3. You either had dance lasting long enough for one combo, or potera failing every attempt.

Best fusion character I've seen is from a freeware beat 'em up Little Fighter 2, where a fire and ice character run into each other and form Firzen, with about the same level as the op boss character but with a hidden time limit of some minutes (And hardly invincible, he can still be swamped.)

Actually, found a video:

That game was fun. smile

We need Hit.
He is the coolest mofo in DB history...hell I almost like him more then Broly.
