These sales numbers include digital sales. To celebrate, players will get in-game money and special lobby avatars from May 21 to May 28.
Dragon Ball FighterZ recently received Ultra Instinct Goku as its newest DLC character. Three more characters are supposed to be added as part of the game’s Season 3 DLC content.
Dragon Ball FighterZ first launched on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 28, 2018. A Nintendo Switch port of the game later launched on September 8, 2018. It’s pretty much the dream game any Dragon Ball fan was waiting to see for decades when it comes to animations and fidelity with Akira Toriyama’s original manga. Game Producer Tomoko Hiroki and her team did and still do a great job.
Arc System Works later on also launched Granblue Fantasy Versus. The studio is also currently developing Guilty Gear Strive, scheduled to launch in early 2021. Guilty Gear Strive was planned for late 2020 but was delayed due to Covid-19.
