Heads up, Dragon Ball FighterZ fans. Bandai Namco has just sent word on when we can expect Dragon Ball FighterZ in the West. And believe it or not, it’s not that far from the Japanese release date. Set for a Jan. 26th, 2018, Dragon Ball FighterZ will be released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

With that announcement, comes word of the updated pre-order bonus and more. Pre-order the game now and you’ll get access to SSGSS (Super Saiyan Blue) Goku and Vegeta. You’ll also score two exclusive lobby avatars and a Girls Stamp Pack, featuring Android 21, Android 18, and Bulma at launch.

We’ll also see a character pass, the FighterZ Pass, with will grant access to eight playable characters at a discounted price. That said, we have no idea on who they’ll be as of yet.

Then there’s the Dragon Ball  FighterZ Ultimate Edition with includes a digital copy of the game, FighterZ Pass, anime music pack containing 11 songs from the anime, and a commentator voice pack.  

Finally, we have new images of Nappa and Captain Ginyu in action. You can check those out below.

As for the Nintendo Switch, there’s still hope. Bandai Namco hasn’t ruled out a version for Nintendo’s hybrid. However, they did state the fate of the title depends on the sales of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on the Switch. And so far, I’ve heard the game is doing pretty well. Hopefully, Bandai Namco addresses this frequently asked question, sooner than later.

Editor’s Note: I haven’t been into fighting games as much as I used to. That said, after my hands-on with the game at E3 2017, I’m pretty hyped for this game. Can’t wait to get my hands on my favorite mean machine, Piccolo-san.
