Dragon Ball FighterZ PC Details: System Requirements, Specs, And Release Date Revealed

Power up!

113 Comments

With the release of Dragon Ball FighterZ drawing closer, Bandai Namco Games took to Twitter to release info about the required specs needed for the game's PC version. The game will release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 25. Developed by Arc System Works, the same team behind the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series, Dragon Ball FighterZ possesses a visual style that mimics the popular anime.

In addition to the specs listed below, the publisher offered more details about pre-order bonuses for the game, which include early access to Goku and Vegeta's Super Saiyan Blue forms, along with exclusive avatars to use in the in-game lobby. Moreover, pre-ordering the game gave you access to the pre-launch beta, which has now passed. The game is currently available to pre-order on Steam.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Windows 7/8/10 (64bit OS required)
  • AMD FX-4350, 4.2 GHz/Intel core i5-3470, 3.20 GHZ 4GB RAM
  • Radeon HD 6870, 1GB / GeForce GTX 650 Ti, 1GB DirectX 11
  • DirectX compatible soundcard or onboard chipset

Recommended Requirements:

  • Windows 7/8/10 (64bit OS required)
  • AMD Ryzen 5 1400, 3.2 GHz / Intel Core i7-3770, 3.40 GHz 8GB RAM
  • Radeon HD 7870, 2GB / GeForce GTX 660, 2GB DirectX 11
  • DirectX compatible soundcard or onboard chipset

The PC specs are surprisingly modest, potentially allowing older machines to run the game well. And the game's Unreal 4 graphics engine is also used by other notable fighting games, including Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V, which are all well-optimized on PC.

They left out the disk space requirement. I'm running low on space on my SSD and would like to know how big the game is before I start deleting things...

Wait, so the DLC characters will cost 40% of the game itself? There's no way I'm spending 100 euro on this game no matter how amazing it looks. I

ll wait until the price goes (way) down...

So basically you could probably run this game on an 8 year old PC without much problem.

Dragon Ball Super was trash for a while but it's starting to get very interesting. I like Jiren and the Frieza sub plot.

Modest...lol,

Witcher 3 has lower requirements. I don't get why these 2d fighting games require specs like this to run.

Is a potato like a PS3 could run Blaz and Guilty Gear, there is no excuse for the PC versions to need 8gb ram and a 2 gb gpu xD

@jZangetsu21: Well let me correct you now because this is not a 2D game. Those models are actually fully 3D. It's only using a Left and Right perspective. So yeah the lighting, those models are all captured in 3D. Reason why the requirements are higher and reason why it looks so good.

@sdecker425: Wrong this game is well optimized. It's actually a 3D game. It's not 2D at all. Those models are fully rendered in 3D reason why they look so great. The perspective however is from left to right which makes you think it's 2D.

I have a really old CPU from 2012 but i should be fine with it playing this game. Is a i7 quad core 3.8 ghz. It is showing its age but with the purchase of a new CPU it also comes the purchase of a new motherboard because no Current CPU will be compatible with a 5 in half years old motherboard. I'm fine with what i have right now and just a few months ago i bought a GTX 1080 and is running perfectly fine with my old hardware

Not bad for the specs at all. I wasn't gonna buy the PC version anyways, I'm getting Dragon Ball: FighterZ on PS4 since I have 5 friends are all on PS4 and so with that, I wanna play with my pals.

@glame: I have a laptop with a GT 740M on which I beat the whole GTA V campaign, it has 8GB RAM and an i7 of a generation previous to yours. I've played it on the 1366x768 resolution like yours too.

I'm not sure how close our GPUs are to each other, but Steam has a refund system which you can request if you feel the game isn't performing as you wish, so you won't lose your money for trying it :) (keep in mind the 2h game time limit though).

@glame: Gamedebate is set for 60 fps. I've had experiences where GD said I would have issues then played the entire game without hiccup. You really will just have to try it to be honest. You could always lower the resolution. This helps a lot.

lol @ "The PC specs are surprisingly modest"

C'mon son, even I knew the game wouldn't be demanding. It looks fantastic but it's not like you need a 1080 to properly run it.

@lionheartssj1: Oh yeah. The initial minimum specs required an older video card with 4 GB VRAM and 16 GB RAM. When I saw that, I was pretty dissapointed with my relatively recent 2 GB 960. I guess I am also still good to go though, so now I am very happy.
