Players can interact with other people online and challenge them in friendly matches. YouTube username PS360HD2 has uploaded a 15-minute gameplay of the beta and was able to roam around the area and fight other players.

Match transitions will happen at random as the matchmaking system will pair gamers to fight each other. During online bouts, players get to see their ping rate in real time as it is directly posted above the round timer.

Gamers who are not able to play closed beta will have a chance to play the game at the open beta test in January 2018.

Players who have pre-ordered the game will have the chance to play the "Super Saiyan Blue" versions of Son Goku and Vegeta on the roster. Bandai Namco also revealed the "CollectorZ" edition which will include a 18cm Goku statue figure, three art board, and a steel book casing.

Gaming fans are hoping that the Japnese game publisher will add more "Dragon Ball" characters from non-canon media like Cooler, Lord Slug, Broly, Janemba, Turles, Towa, and Mira.

Game producer Tomoko Hiroki teased the possibility that "FighterZ" will be a hit in the eSports community, but they will have to focus first on introducing the game to the die-hard fans of the anime series. The game will launch in February 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
