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 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.

(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?
