Oh, you want some more info on Dragon Ball FighterZ? Let’s talk about some of the different modes available in the full game:
Fight waves upon waves of enemy teams to get the highest rank. You can ascend three different courses: the Snake Way, the Extreme Gravity Spaceship, and the Hyperbolic Time Chamber course. Each course will feature battles with a wide variety of enemy teams. Your route in each course is determined by your score in the previous battle. If your score is high enough, you can advance one rank above your previous one. Otherwise, you’ll continue a route of the same or lower rank. Your score after clearing the last stage determines your rank. If it’s your highest yet, it will be recorded as your best score. Once you’ve completed a course, you’ll gain access to hard mode.
In story mode, you’ll be traversing three original story arcs. As you progress, you’ll learn the basics of combat and help your characters get stronger, so this is the perfect place to begin your journey. During your travels, you’ll encounter old friends and deadly new foes. Encountering a boss will advance the storyline and rescuing an ally will grant you new playable characters. You can also increase your Link Level with your allies. The higher the Link Level, the stronger your allies become. When it reaches a certain point, you’ll see special Link Event cutscenes, so keep fighting on! Some characters will have unique dialog if they’re fighting alongside specific teammates. Try to group as many different characters together as possible for different conversations among your squad. You can leave and come back to the story mode whenever you like.
That’s all the info we have for now. We hope you’re ready to experience the next level of fighting games in Dragon Ball FighterZ on Xbox One January 26!
