Dragon Ball FighterZ has gone all-out for its Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta trailer, pitting the most powerful warrior in Dragon Ball GT against Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Gogeta from Dragon Ball Super. We've now typed out 'super' so many times that the word has lost all meaning.
Anyway, the point is that we're watching the game's two Gogetas go head-to-head, and it certainly makes for a hype video. The new DLC character — part of FighterZ Pass 3 — releases on the 12th March.

The theme song is so nostalgic, it literally brought me so many fond memories of my adolescence growing up with this anime series being such a big part of it. Great trailer.
Soooo I clearly wasn't paying attention for a couple years - is this game basically like Guilty Gear but with Dragon Ball characters? Looks pretty good.
@Voltan Nah it's more like Marvel vs. Capcom. 3v3 team fighter with a heavy emphasis on insane combos, assists, and super moves.
@ShogunRok Ah, I see - that sounds pretty good too
It's a lot of fun, I have to say, and the animation is consistently slick throughout. Multiplayer matches with friends are hectic and look better than watching the anime- but- it is getting silly with how many extra characters have to be bought, and the proportion of those characters that are just goku in another form...
Unbalanced as it was, I do miss the days of budokai 3, with a hundred odd fighters and mini games mid battle.
@voltan it's production values for it's supers and such are insane mate. I knew next to nothing on DBZ before it came out but I researched as much of the characters and events as possible just so I can get invested in it, all because it looked so amazing.
This is another game I wish had a ultimate edition, I only have the vanilla game so I would have to buy a whole bunch of season passes. As for the trailer the theme really made it for me, I'm glad to see GT getting more love.
@J2theEzzo They're only 5$ so it's not like you're spending THAT much, I've only cared to buy characters that I like or actually use. I do agree that there should've been waaay less Gokus and Vegetas even if they are unique from each other. Budokai series was fun but I'm glad we moved away from it to have an actual proper Dragon Ball fighting game.
@Nepp67 $5?! Fighter packs are about £20 each in UK, unless they're on sale, and even then, it's about a tenner. Consider that, for a full roster, you're paying 40 quid for a game, brand new, then 80 quid for all the extra characters- that's a lot. The fact that dlc characters costs twice as much as the standalone game already speaks volumes. I remember when you had to BEAT a game to unlock new fighters (granted that's the case with 2 ), but everyone now just monetises it. Such a shame.
@J2theEzzo Again unless you're actually going to use all of those characters a lot online I suggest actually choosing the characters which are 5$(which is a good deal) each instead of buying the pass. It seems you don't understand the characters take time to make with balancing and having them be unique from each other with their movesets. They're not like XV where they're copy and pasted characters.
@Nepp67 You're speaking from a tournament/competitive angle but he could just want access to the entire roster for when friends/family come over or maybe he's like me and gets OCD from seeing locked characters you can't use on the select screen.
@Nepp67 unfortunately, my net is so laggy, I'd be ashamed to play online, haha. I just enjoy playing local versus, mostly, and I understand that games work quite differently, across the board, or have different aims and purposes, etc. But I also enjoy fighting games that have a more single player focus, and so I like to have lots of characters to play around with. Tekken used to be great for that, you'd unlock half the fighters by playing it, but now you get a whole roster from the bat, with extras that you pay for. Just a different focus I guess!
@J2theEzzo I don't blame you on that really, especially with FighterZ's garbage netcode(Thankfully Strive is coming soon). I wouldn't mind it really if in order to unlock the paid characters we had to play arcade mode to unlock them cause I do enjoy the single player side when it comes to fighting games.
Hi there fellow gamers.
This is THE BEST fighting game character trailer I´ve ever seen!
The classic DBGT Dan Dan Kokoro Hikareteku theme song, the beautiful animations, the Freakin Level 7 Super Insta Kill and that Dramatic Finish...... OMG!
The two most OP characters in the DB Universe duking it out.
Every DB fan dream come true.
I´m gonna watch the trailer again. It´s that good 👍
Cheers, stay safe and happy gaming to us all
Just noticed it's currently 86% off on PSN... Some of the DLC is discounted too.
I guess I'll have to think about it
@Nepp67 I guess that's it, really. For me, I don't have a lot of opportunities to play games with my friends, not like at uni, when we all lived together. So, I enjoy playing fighting games single player (crazy as that is) and not focusing on the competition side of things. For me, a great fighting game has a deep system to master, a varied roster, and a decent single player mode. Street fighter 5, while excelling at esports, is for me, a bad fighting game, because I'd have to pay for half the content, and there's nothing really to do, playing it alone. Which I say is a shame, because I loved street fighter x tekken (ps3), which had a decent arcade mode, a kind of cool, coop tag team system and each character had its own 'end movie'. Bad side, half the fighters were locked behind a pay wall, and now, that's just standard fare.
@J2theEzzo MK11 is pretty good on the single player side - it still has a bunch of paid DLC characters though.
@Voltan yeah, I've had my eye on that one, too. Was tempted to grab it in the recent sales, with the expansion, providing all characters and story mode for about £40... but I thought I'd wait to see if it becomes deal of the week! But you're right, netherrealm are pretty good for single player content!
@Voltan I did buy fighterz in a sale a while back, and succumbed to 2 fighter packs already. Totalling about 30-40 quid ain't too bad, and it has got a story mode, too, so I'd say it's worth it on sale, I just dislike the model of paying a game's original price twice over, when the cost of extra content could just as easily go to a whole other game. Is what it is, though.
@J2theEzzo I got MK11 Ultimate on one of those sales and it became my most played game this year. I don't even play any of the DLC characters (not yet anyway) but the additional story bit was cool (very good performance by
Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Shang Tsung).
The only reason I didn't buy FighterZ straight away after seeing that sale is because I'm already spending a lot of time on MK11 (not only still got a lot of content in it left but I also started playing online a bit) and I'm not sure I want to play 2 fighting games side by side It's tempting but hearing the net code is not great is a bit of a turn off. I do think fighting games are best against a human opponent and I definitely don't have anyone to play against locally
@Voltan I think you've swayed me; will have to check out mk11 when it next dips into the sales. I quite understand what you mean about playing 2 fighting games side by side... I tried getting my gf to play injustice, right after tekken. As a non-gamer, I think it fried her brain a little, haha
I wasn't that excited at first, but this trailer got me super hyped!
@ShogunRok Do they plan on adding a story mode or new quests for the DLC characters?
@Voltan I see mk 11 ultimate edition is the ps store deal of the week, so for 25 quid, (with all dlc) I think I'll have to take it!
@J2theEzzo that's a good deal!
