Guilty Gear Styled Dragon Ball Game Leaked before E3

Today Bandai Namco has accidentally leaked a new Dragon Ball game titled, Dragon Ball Fighters.

Dragon Ball Fighters was originally set to be announced June 12 (Day 1 of E3), but the news broke out after Bandai Namco accidentally shared this information ahead of its official reveal.

The new title is being developed by Arc System Works, and will be a 2.5D gameplay style, which will resemble Guilty Gear XRD Rev 2’s art style. The game will also use a 3v3 team battle system, allowing players to create their Dragon Ball team of choice and will also incorporate the “ultra high speed battles” and “flashy special moves” that the Dragon Ball series is known for.

As of now this is everything known so far for Dragon Ball Fighters, until the official announcement is made, so lets just hope this title makes an appearance at E3’s show floor as well as EVO 2017.

Dragon Ball Fighters, will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide in early 2018.

NCG Reviews – Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 ( Playstation 4, PC/Steam)

Lets Rock

Being one of the main fighting games at EVO 2017 this year and coming almost a years after Guilty Gear Revelator, an updated version titled Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 joins the franchise. Adding 2 more characters, new moves, and new balancing to the gmame, along with an extra chapter to the story from the last game, Revelator 2 will keep players learning more ways to punish their opponents.REV2_Baiken_3

Visual

REV2_Baiken_12Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is still the best looking fighting game to date, with its 2D feel and 3D rendered characters. During gameplay you can instantly see the difference from the previous Revelator. With the newly added dramatic angle drops before each battle, new stages which are lit up and gorgeous , Rev 2 visually looks stunning.

REV2_Answer_15Stepping away from the gameplay, Rev 2’s menus had a color swap as well as some touch ups. One of the main touch ups is the online menu . Players can now easily queue up in ranked matches as well as player matches from the easy to navigate main menu. This is a big update from the previous entry, as it is no longer needed for players to go into a lobby to wait for matches.

 

 

Sound/Audio

REV2_Answer_21Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 added a few new tracks to the fast, heavy and adrenaline pumping J-rock music soundtrack that will have you ready to challenge other players. With a track list consisting of character themes, from previous entries, you will understand why the game says “Let’s Rock” before ever match. There will be times when you find yourself staying on one track just to pump yourself up during a matchup. For anyone who loved any of the older titles this is hands down one OST to add to your music collection.

 

Gameplay

REV2_Baiken_10The fast pace gameplay that the Guilty Gear Series is known for is still here with new balancing and new move sets. Adding 2 more characters to the roster, one being Baiken, a fan favorite from older entries, and the other named Answer, a newcomer to Rev 2, this update will have you playing, and learner new combos for hours.

As I mentioned before, the online menu has been updated, so now when players play ranked matches they can take part of a best to 3 set of matches. Something that was taken from Street Fighter V, and I recommend any other fighting game title should add as well. This is one of the best parts from Rev 2, as it helps keep the online match flow consistent and competitive. For players not looking for online play but more to the single player experience, Rev 2 has also brought back a new chapter for the “Cinematic Story Mode”, which I am not going to spoil but is well worth your time.

Verdict

With the fantastic visuals still here, new characters entering the roster and new moves in Rev 2, this is a must have to anyone who is a fan of the Guilty Gear franchise or wants to keep up with the fighting game community. As for new players who missed out on the previous title, I highly recommend picking this title up, as it is one of the best looking, and best technical fighting games out there. As for a score for Rev 2,  I have to give Guilty Gear Revelator 2 a 9 out of 10.ScoreREV2_Baiken_1
