    You act like that's ArcSys's call to make. It's not, it's Namco's, they own the game. So judging by their track record, probably base game and DLC.
    You lack devotion! Enduring hunger and poverty is how you find the way!

    When's Dragon Ball?
    Welcome to the internet. God help you if you have an opinion.

    I should start keeping written letters in sealed envelopes when I go to tournaments. If i get bodied, I give them one, and when they open it up it says "fuk u"

    The way the match is described you can pretty much forget about the idea of the match ending when one character dies.

    They could do transformations like Dante and Vergil in Marvel. They cost meter, last for only a certain amount of time and maybe adds some extra moves. Since some ppl (read: Goku) have so many transformations maybe you have to chose which one you want at the character select screen.

    Also if all you know about Dimps DBZ games is Xenoverse, don't speak on it. The Budokai/BL series with always be classic.

    Ki Cancels opened that series wide the fuck open, so much experimentation with combos.

    Well, Slaythe from Gaf said the transformed states were separate slots last time he saw the game.

    Hopefully they're in-game transformations. It'd be funny to see a team of Base/Super Saiyan/Super Saiyan Blue Goku

    Then the roster is gonna have to be pretty deep to be a Marvel-esque game.

    I already know Future Trunks and Piccolo are set so I'm all good.

    Also if Broly is in I hope he plays like Tager; I wanna see alot of face grabbin and lethal body checks

    I hope they do like in dragon ball super and use some religious like epic music when you turn goku to super saiyan blue (if you can).

    I am not the biggest fan of db super but that part is dope.

    How do you handle multiple forms though? Maybe do like Shin Budokai 2 and have you pick which transformation you want at the start as your install and give them unique perks?
    I intended to put Gohan into the leading role. It didn’t work out. I felt that compared to Goku, he was ultimately not suited for the part.

    30 characters with a lot of big baddies even from OAV seem okay with me. I hope alternate forms isn't a separate character slot.

    Super combination should be in along with the assist system like UMVC3.

    Even the MVC1's Dual Combination Attack seems interesting to see for two character in a team of 3.

    I think the only suitable alternate forms right now to be a separate slot is a Super Saiyan 4th transformation and also Future Trunks.

    Fat Buu with Mr Satan, Future Trunks with Mai, Trunks with Gotenks and Tien with Chaozu should be a single character now. Like Chang with Choi in their CVS2 iteration or like Ace Attorney with Maya in UMVC3.

    A fusion characters is more interesting to be a pair combination move by having two characters in one team instead of a separate character slot. Like the Atomic Guy conditions and activation that is a pair transformation of Yuki and Ai in Neo Geo Battle Coliseum.

    Well, that is because most people are more interested on hanging out on the lobbies instead of trying to catch something with the match making.
    I mean, you can have up to 64 people on the public lobbies and 8 or16 (i don't remember right now) on the private ones.
    Is the same reason why most don't bother with ranking.

    I don't think Venom has anything close to MorriDoom or Spiral/Sent, where you can spend nearly the whole match in blockstun without even getting close to them.

    Even better? If they made him like they did in Zenkai Battle Royale where he could set "Saibaman proximity bombs" that would leap out and latch onto your opponents if they got close. Give him a bit of a Testament like vibe with traps.

    I know what you meant, but even if we each make 76 more posts containing the word "tranny," we will still have said that less on SRK than SonicHabeeb.


    Sometimes GGXRD camera doesn't pull back far enough for the dynamic moves of perspective they suddenly do. Granted Marvel games tend to never do that, but go 2-3 screens high vertically instead. Arcsys has more experience doing it the other way with Isuka, ala a Samurai Showdown space out by being too far apart and that happens.

    Camera Director could be as important as the mythical Battle Director this time around.

    Lets hope they consider some of that from a gameplay perspective more than just spinaroonie cinematics.

    You know, the fact that this is gonna be an Arcsys title makes me wonder - will the game have an ENG dub?
    The only modern Dragon Ball games that didn't have one are Super Dragon Ball Z, Fusions, Extreme Butoden, though Fusions and Butoden are portable titles

    Arcsys makes it but it's not with their money, they are hired to do it by Namco/

    At the bottom of the press release there is a bunch of language planned so I assume those will not just be text.

    It's not crazy hard to translate a game, you need to code the system that can handle multiple voice files (probably they have it already since it was in Sign) and then what you mostly need is a bunch of money to hire voice actors and studios around the world to translate shit for you and record it.
    It's never that easy because there is always the occasional annoying bug but that's the general idea.

    So long story short I would be very surprised if it's not fully translated in multiple languages.

    Don't forget: With real financial backing and a worldwide release. I bet Bamco gave them some additional staff to speed up the process.

    The way the match is described you can pretty much forget about the idea of the match ending when one character dies.

    Yeah. Back a while ago, Arc said that they make their fighters for specific console generations. They were in the process of giving this generation it's own fighter:

    @Pertho

    Here's a better translation of the press release:
    An innovative fighting game in the “Dragon Ball” series with “2.5D” graphics

    “Dragon Ball Fighters”

    Available worldwide in 2018!

    Bandai Namco Entertainment (Main office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; president: Ooshita Satoshi) are launching the action game “Dragon Ball Fighters” in early 2018, for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Steam, and featuring new “2.5D” anime graphics. This game, the latest in the series of “Dragon Ball” home console games, will be developed worldwide as a full-fledged “Dragon Ball” fighting game.

    This current project is a genuine fighting game that distinguishes itself from previous entries in the “Dragon Ball” series. Its development is being handled by Arc System Works, who have handled numerous 2D fighting games that have won acclaim both in Japan and overseas, thoroughly recreating in-game the look of the “Dragon Ball” anime beloved around the world. You will be able to enjoy the world of “Dragon Ball” by experiencing battles overflowing with realism; it’s like an anime that you can move yourself.

    Battles utilize 3-on-3 team fights, and you can enjoy strategic tactics such as mastering character affinities and building teams. In addition, this innovative fighting game incorporates the thrill of high-speed battles and flashy special attacks people have come to expect from “Dragon Ball”.

    It is currently in development so that you can enjoy the world of “Dragon Ball” with new graphics. Please look forward to it.

    Hiroki Tomoko comment:
    This game has turned into a “2.5D battle” combining 2D anime presentation and 3D solid presentation. In recent years there have been many “Dragon Ball” games where you fly around through 3D space, so the reason for bothering to choose 2.5D is because there are some things only it can express. Although at first glance it looks just like 2D animation, since it’s made in 3D the camera can move to different angles, allowing for a wider range of expression and introducing many unique productions that are impossible in only 2D or 3D. I am sure that all the players will be able to experience “Dragon Ball” battles that feel like an anime they’re running in real time. Look forward to “Dragon Ball” battles you can only experience in this game.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It's just that yours is stupid.

    3 vs 3 huh? How will fusions work? Maybe it will be something like tatsunoko vs capcom and they take up an extra character slot but are buffed in a certain way, like health?

    also I don't think there should be any excessive transformations like the budokai/tenkaichi/ raging blast series, goku should start as super saiyan(let him transform into it when the fight starts) and have an extra transformation that has a time limit and drains health slowly like ssj3 or takes a supers worth of energy like ssj blue. I'd love it if they did stuff like this to make it closer to the anime/manga. Any way, think of the air neutral game! How would they use flight, air dashes or like MvsC2 magneto/storm? it would be interesting if its like arcana hearts or better yet make it like super sonic warriors!
