What to expect?

Meanwhile, "Tekken 7" director Katsuhiro Harada, who revealed the new trailer for "DBFZ" following the Tekken Evo 2017 finals, later announced that popular character Geese Howard is headed to "Tekken."

The limited version of "Dragon Ball FighterZ" will have nine yet to be revealed characters; however, PlayStationLifeStyle's Tyler Treese claims players will be able to go Super Saiyan. The online publication had an opportunity to experience the game at E3 2017.

According to the website, the upcoming title focuses on mobility more than anything else. Players will be able to fend off Ki attacks with the help of a particular homing dash. Players can also do a warp attack dubbed as Vanish, which lets them teleport behind their opponent and take the offensive. It is imperative for players to bear in mind this would cost a lot of energy, thus it is recommended to moderately employ these particular moves. #Dragon Ball FighterZ Reveal Trailer #Dragon Ball FighterZ Characters
