Next Time On Dragon Ball Z
For Dragon Ball fans, there's a lot to get excited about in Dragon Ball FighterZ. Arc System Works' 2.5D fighter both captures the spirit of the series as well as actual scenes from Dragon Ball Z and more--provided you get the matchups and settings just right. If you're hoping to relive the first time Gohan goes Super Saiyan 2 or when Goku kills Kid Buu for good, we've got you covered.
Dragon Ball FighterZ includes "Dramatic Scenes" taken from the anime if certain conditions are met. Dramatic Intros play when you and your opponent lead with the correct characters on the appropriate stage, while triggering Dramatic Finishes is a bit more complicated and requires you to end the match with a neutral heavy attack. Click ahead to see what iconic battles you can recreate in-game, how to unlock them, and more references. (Spoilers for Dragon Ball Z, Battle of the Gods, and Dragon Ball Super follow.) You can watch the Dramatic cutscenes in action in our game vs. anime comparison.
