In case you missed the news yesterday, Dragon Ball FighterZ now has a Western release date. The game actually launches in North America and Europe before it even hits Japan, on the 26th January, 2018. Naturally, fans are over the moon that it's arriving sooner than many anticipated, but it's not all sunshine and rainbows.

Alongside the release date announcement, Bandai Namco also revealed that the game will be getting a total of eight additional playable characters after launch. All eight downloadable content combatants will be part of the title's newly announced season pass, and their identities will remain a mystery until they're revealed one by one.

It's a content plan that's left some fans disgruntled and asking questions. It's now common practice for DLC to be outlined before the base game is even released, but it's still something that doesn't sit well with a lot of people. After all, we don't actually know who these additional characters are, and the season pass ain't cheap.

Then there's the argument that eight characters make up a large chunk of the playable roster. If the company's adding that many new faces down the line, surely some of them should be in the game to begin with? Again, some fans aren't overly happy with how this is being handled, while others are simply looking forward to seeing which Dragon Ball warriors end up in the game.

Where do you stand on this? Whatever your opinion, power it up in the comments section below.
