Dragon Ball FighterZ Western Release Date, Character Pass with 8 DLC Fighters Announced


Like it or not, post-launch DLC character packs - via season passes, are becoming a standard in the fighting game genre. Today, Arc System Works announced the "FighterZ Pass" which will include 8 additional DLC fighters for $34.99. Each of these characters will come with their own lobby avatar, stamp & alternate colors. Additionally, Aksys announced the official Western release date for DBFZ - January 26th, 2018. A special bundle called Dragon Ball FighterZ Ultimate Edition was also announced, which contains the FighterZ Pass, pre-order bonuses SSB Goku & Vegeta, an anime music pack & commentator voice pack.

This is not to be confused with the $139.99 CollectorZ Edition, which does not contain the FighterZ Pass (pictured below. However, players will gain access to the next open beta by pre-ordering the CollectorZ Edition (or the standard edition - digital or physical).
