(Editors Opinion: I’m looking forward to this game. And I’m very much so hyped to play this title weekend, alongside Dragon Ball FighterZ Open beta as well! I’m hoping this has a more in depth tutorial with actual commentary. I was privileged with taking part in the private beta but the tutorial was a bit lacking to say the least. However I enjoyed the game very from my limited play through and this game looks absolutely gorgeous. I am very much looking forward to playing the final build upon it’s release.)
