The Dragon Ball FighterZ open beta will run from January 14 at 12:00 a.m. PT / 3:00 a.m. ET / 9:00 a.m CST to January 16 at the same time. Users who pre-order the game will gain early access to the open beta on January 13, also at the same time.

( Editors Opinion: I’m very much looking forward to this open beta as we here at the WUPS crew were in the previous closed beta. Although it was a closed beta and it was very enjoyable while playing the game. However the downside of the previous beta was the process of catching the available times of the lobbies to be open for players. It was very tedious and a bit of a hassle, however this open beta seems to be a bit more lenient as we have yet to hear any information of this being limited due to play time. Which is a great thing because this game launches in a few weeks and they need to overload the servers to see how they will be able to handle such a large player count especially on the PS4 end. With that being said I am eagerly waiting for this weekend to approach so that I may once again get a chance to play the greatness that is Dragon Ball FighterZ! )

Will you be picking up this title? Dragon Ball FighterZ will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26th North America and Europe, and February 1st in Japan. For news like this and more make sure to keep us bookmarked and check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

Alongside with the above stated news Bandai Namco has released some details about the upcoming characters and a trailer which you can view below:

 

Goku Black

Goku Black will receive assistance from Zamasu, such as holding down the opponent when firing a “Kamehameha.” Using his giant scythe and hand-blade, Goku Black can attack from a distance with long reach, never giving his opponent a chance to retaliate.

Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZBeerus

Beerus is the God of Destruction of Universe 7. He restrains his opponent while using “Spheres of Destruction” that explode upon touch, all the while gradually cornering his opponent with what is not even the full extent of his God powers.

 

Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZHit

Hit uses his “Time-Skip/Molotov” technique to attack as if he is warping. He also uses technical skills, such as automatically counter-attacking when attacked in a defensive stance, to drive into his opponent with ultra high speed attacks.

Dragon Ball FighterZDragon Ball FighterZ

(Editors Opinion: I’ve been steering clear of Dragon Ball Super but at this point I have no choice but to binge watch as I’m looking forward to be caught up with the show’s latest story arc by the release of this much anticipated fighter. However I simply cannot stress enough of how beautifully put together this fighter is. The Cell shading of this looks amazing when you view the trailers of the game. I simply cannot wait to see more gameplay of not only Hit and Beerus but Android 21 as well. This will definitely be a day one purchase for me.)
With that being said, Dragon Ball FighterZ will launch for PlayStation 4, and other platforms on January 26 in the Americas and Europe, and February 1 in Japan.What do you think of the open beta details and this new trailer? Are you personally interested? Do you think this will live up to the expectations for fighting game fans and those who that say Dragon Ball Xenoverse 1 and 2 didn’t live up to the hype?

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

In the latest issue of V-Jump, Goku Black(Zamasu), Hit, and the god of destruction Beerus was reveal as the most recent additions to Dragon Ball FighterZ roster. All three characters are extremely popular for the Dragon Ball Super series, so its no surprise they made it into Dragon Ball FighterZ roster. With the addition of these three characters, I’m sure the excitement for this game will be exponentially greater. It’s great to see such a diverse bunch of characters being added in Dragon Ball FighterZ so far. Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to launch in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26th, 2018.

Here is a brief breakdown of these characters:

Goku Black(Zamasu)

goku black(Zamasu)Goku Black’s Meteor special attack is “Work of the Gods,” in which he attacks with his hand transformed into a blade and follows with a cloning attack. Zamasu (Goku Black’s true form) also appears and can bind the opponent.

Beerus and Hit:

beerus HitBeerus’ Meteor special attack is “God of Destruction’s Judgment,” which seems to go from a throwing technique to a Headshot rush attack. He can also use “Sphere of Destruction,” which creates a sphere that explodes when it touches the enemy.

Hit’s Meteor special attack is “I Continue to Grow,” which stops time and unleashes multiple attacks one after the other. He uses instantaneous attacks and movement, as well as strike techniques.

Black Clover: Project Knights Heading to PS4

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

As announced from Bandai Namco via the Black Clover website it has been revealed that the game based on the manga and anime, Black Clover: Project Knights will be heading to PS4 only in Japan and presumably PS4 and PC in the future in the west. As of now there’s not much info to go off on at this time other than there is word of more information being released on December 18th. As of now there’s not much to go out outside of this very, very small announcement trailer.

(Editor’s Opinion: I haven’t seen much of this anime or read the manga outside of viewing a few Gifs images of this series. However I am intrigued and I am hoping that it provides something fresh and new. I love games like J Stars and so forth but I want a bit of a deeper experience with these newer anime / manga to console iterations. Here’s hoping that we’ll see something new and fresh alongside more than just a name. Here’s to more great games and hopefully more innovation in the console anime/manga space.)

(Editors Opinion: I’m hoping for a full on grappler character. So far however Cell is the only player who some what fits the feel of a character I’m looking forward to using the most. However I am optimistic for more variety in the roster so far. For the most part we’ve been pretty much able to guess to some degree who would be included in the game. However I still look forward to playing this fighter in the future and you can most definitely expect The Online Arcade to host many a tournaments of this title in the future.)
