Bandai Namco has announced the launch date of Closed Beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Some Xbox One and Playstation 4 owners will be able to enjoy the upcoming game from Saturday, September 16 to Monday, September 18. Closed Beta will last only the weekend. The sign-ups for the beta have been delayed. Official press note from Bandai Namco below.
We recently announced at EVO 2017 that the closed beta sign-ups for DRAGON BALL FighterZ would begin on July 26, 2017; due to the volume of excitement and enthusiasm surrounding this announcement, we have decided to expand the capacity of the closed beta in an effort to enable more players to participate in the program. We are also working to bolster our background systems to ensure that the closed beta registration and selection process can accept the volume of anticipated sign-ups. However, these efforts will necessitate a slight delay for the closed beta sign-up date.
Closed Beta sign-ups will start on Tuesday, August 22, 2017. There is still no information on how to register.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is a 2.5D fighting game that uses a three-vs-three team battle system that incorporates ultra high-speed battles and flashy moves that the Dragon Ball series is known for. The game is being developed by Arc System Works and will be released by Bandai Namco for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in early 2018.
Preorder (Digital Code) is available to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC players located in the United States via Amazon ($59.99 USD). Currently the delivery date is temporarily set to December 31, 2018 at 12:00 AM PST, but it'll change after announcing the official launch date.
