Dragon Ball FighterZ
With the release of Dragon ball FighterZ, there’s been a lot of hype around Dragon Ball lately. Not too surprising considering, just how important the franchise is in anime; but what is also surprising is just how much of a prolific video game franchise it has been. DBZ has released dozens of games over the years. Some good. Some bad. But with the release of FighterZ now seems like a good time to look back at some of the highlights. Starting with none other than FighterZ itself.
Despite having literally dozens of fighting games split across several different console generations and series, Dragon Ball has had shockingly few “good” fighting games. This isn’t to say the games are bad at all, but they often lack the depth or nuance that comes with most other fighters out there. Street Fighter, Tekken, even Smash Bros has a lot of technical skill involved, but Dragon Ball? A lot of their games were pretty simple and unbalanced when all is said and done.
Then comes FighterZ, a game built not only to be accessible, but rewarding to the technically skilled players as well. It’s a game filled with fanservice, an excellent fighting system, and a surprisingly robust story mode. It’s very likely that in the long run FighterZ is gonna become a standout among Dragon Ball games. Possibly even the best.
