The game is still code-named “Project Z” and is a full-fledged action RPG set in the universe created by Akira Toriyama. It’ll tell the original story of Dragon Ball Z.
We also learned that the game is coming for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.
The trailer shows the logo of CyberConnect 2, revealing the Fukuoka-based team as the developer.
You can check out the trailer below.
The reveal was supposed to happen at 7:00 PM PST following Dragon Ball FighterZ’s new DLC characters at 4:00 PM, but apparently the scheduled has been completely reshuffled.
It’s interesting to see the game revealed on all platforms excluding the Switch. This may possibly indicate that it’s been in development for a long time before the Switch proved itself and Bandai Namco started to support it.
In this case, a Switch port might come at a later time as it happened for Xenoverse 2 and FighterZ.
Another possibility is that the title may be a bit too demanding for Nintendo’s hybrid, which could be likely especially if it is open-world like One Piece: World Seeker, which is also coming only for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
It’ll be interesting to see where this game goes over the next few months. It’s coming this year, so the next reveal shouldn’t be too far.
