Trunks Announced For Dragon Ball FighterZ – And There’s A Beta Coming This Month

by Robert Workman

Get excited, Dragon Ball Z fans, because your world is about to be turned upside down by Trunks.

The anime series favorite was announced today as the latest addition to the roster for Bandai Namco’s incredible 2D fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ, and you can check out his debut trailer above.

Beginning with the announcement of “Trunks joins the fight!”, the trailer provides a glimpse of the gameplay we can expect from the super-powerful character, including a series of impressive combos, sword slashes and super-charged moves that will send opponnets flying across the ring. And, yes, for good measure, we also get a small glimpse of his super technique, which involves him summoning what appears to be a rather large inferno blast, trapping his opponent right in the midst of it.

But that’s not all – a lucky few of you will actually be able to play this game months before it’s scheduled to drop early next year. Bandai Namco has announced that it will begin sign-ups for a closed beta very soon, and that beta will actually take place this month. The registrations are set to open on July 26th (we’ll have full instructions for you closer to that time), and will feature nine different characters to choose from. The beta will be hosted on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so no matter what your platform of choice is, you’ll be able to take part in the fight.

Bandai Namco didn’t confirm if Trunks would be part of the beta – at least, not yet – but with the San Diego Comic-Con event happening later this week, we could get a list of available fighters very soon, probably closer to the registration date.

Hey, we’re down even if he’s not thrown into the mix. Dragon Ball FighterZ was considered one of the biggest games at last month’s E3 event, with its incredible 2D gameplay and awesome presentation, suiting both avid fighting fans and anime lovers alike. We just want to play it already. Like ASAP.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will release in early 2018 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. But, again, if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to play it a lot sooner!
