Dragon Ball FighterZ (Switch)
Fighting September 2018
Dragon Ball FigtherZ is a 2.5D fighting game developed by Arc System Works and published by Bandai Namco where characters from the popular Dragon Ball universe fight each other. Unlike the previous Dragon Ball games, FighterZ uses the Tag Battle mechanics. We create a team of three different characters between which we can switch anytime we want to when fighting. Doing so allows us to execute powerful combos and special attacks. The battle ends when all of our characters have zero health points. Action takes place on 2D arenas, but all of the remaining elements of the game are 3D. It allowed the developers to use advanced graphical effects and stylized animations to make the game look like the classic anime.
