Update, January 26: Dragon Ball FighterZ’s release appears to have been delayed again.
Dragon Ball FighterZ’s PC launch has already been pushed back, but it looks as though the game has been subject to another delay. Despite being scheduled to arrive at 17:00 GMT this evening, the game is still not available.
Here are all the Dragon Ball FighterZ characters.
A quick look at the game’s steam page suggests that despite being due for release around half an hour ago, the game will now unlock at 18:00 GMT instead.
Original story, January 25: If you want to get into the glorious anime goodness of Arc System Works’ take on the world of Dragon Ball on PC, you’re going to have to wait just a bit longer. Publishers Bandai Namco have quietly slid back the release time for the Steam version of Dragon Ball FighterZ, giving you an extra twelve hours to dream of how your own battles between Goku and Vegeta will end up going down.
Dragon Ball FighterZ on PC is now scheduled for release at 9:00 PT / 12:00 ET / 17:00 GMT on January 26. It had previously been scheduled for a midnight release tonight in North America, and judging by the respective store pages for Xbox and PlayStation, the console versions will still be unlocking this evening.
If you’re concerned about the quality of the PC version, bear in mind that Arc’s previous fighters like Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator and BlazBlue Centralfiction have fared quite well on the platform. Yesterday, the developers confirmed full keyboard binding support would be in DBFZ, for what it’s worth.
Also, much though I hate to tell you, it’s not pronounced “Dragon Ball Fighter Zee.” Sadly, Bandai Namco branches in both the US and UK have confirmed it’s just pronounced “fighters.” A missed opportunity, but I know how I’ll be pronouncing it – regardless of what the man tries to tell me.
