Piccolo, Krillin, and online battle details for Dragon Ball Fighter Z

Bandia Namco has released new information and screenshots of Dragon Ball Fighter Z’s new characters and online battle system.

You can check out the screenshots and details below.



Piccolo is considered to be one of the most technical characters with his expandable arm to grab his opponents. He has various ways to break the opponent’s guard and he can also fire fast and powerful beams. Players can charge up for a stronger attack by long-pressing the button. To create a huge blow, Piccolo can use his ability to release Ki blast from a range. For an effective strike, players will can even connect it with a combo move!


Krilin doesn’t have that much reach and power but easily compensate with several different techniques such as the Kamehameha to fight a long-range game. He also has tricky skill to confuse the opponent by leaving an image of himself before turning into an attack. Furthermore, players will gain extra by using the famous Senzu Bean. Fans will be delighted to know that his signature and unblokable attack is also included in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Online Battles

In the Online Battles of Dragon Ball FighterZ, players can fight and interact with other users in the FighterZ lobby. That’s the perfect place to rise up to the arena stage and get matched with other users who are willing to battle! Players can also communicate with Z-Stamp, use facial expressions from Dragon Ball characters and watch their match with the replay mode!

Horror-inspired fighting game will be playable at EVO 2017

Developer AOne Games has announced that they will showcase Omen of Sorrow, an upcoming fighting game inspired by classic horror at EVO 2017 this weekend.

Omen of Sorrow will have a playable demo at booth #110, and will have attendees able to try out the games mechanics and test out the latest combat engine.

Here is a quick overview.

Omen of Sorrow is a classic 2D, four-button fighting game, with Unreal Engine 4 powered graphics, a cast of 12 characters inspired by classical horror, fantasy and mythology, and a battle system designed from the ground up to leverage player skill, rather than stats or random chance, featuring deep combat mechanics that favor movement and spacing over tight execution to provide an engaging experience for pros and newcomers alike!

Using a netcode technique called rollback (GGPO), we’ll provide you with a near-lagless online experience. You’ll also be able to fight your friends in Local Multiplayer; having someone in the same physical space when playing a game is a very different experience than playing with them over the internet, you know that, and so do we.


  • ☠ Master its hardcore combat mechanics
  • Compete Online
  • ☠ Fight your friends in Local Multiplayer.
  • ☠ Choose among 12 iconic characters from myth and legend.


You can check out the latest gameplay trailer and breakdown below.

Omen of Sorrow will release on Playstation 4.

A “Touhou Project” Fighting Game Will Be Released for PS4 in Japan

This is older news, but I am a fighting game fan, and missed this story last month. Plus with all of the recent Touhou games coming to the western shores this caught my attention. For players that don’t have a clue about the Touhou titles, they are usually “bullet hell shoot’em ups” that are very popular in Japan because of their extreme difficulty. Sometimes these titles are even mixed with other genre’s. So you can only imagine how hectic this title may be.

During Tokyo Game Show 2016 last month, Twilight Frontier’s Touhou Project fighter “Urban Legend in Limbo” was announced for Playstation 4 and had a pretty awesome gameplay trailer shown.


Urban Legend in Limbo is currently available available PC and will be released for Playstation 4 in Japan December 8, 2016.No news on a North American release date, but I’m assuming with the localization of games for the current gen console, and the fighting game scene growing, this title will be coming over seas as well.
