Hopefully Bandai Namco can smooth out the server issues for the second beta so Dragon Ball FighterZ can have a great launch on its release date later this month on January 26 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
All in all, 21 easily looks like one of the more interesting characters in the game, if only for this sudden change in design.
Screenshots have emerged of Z Capsules which can be bought through currency you earn in-game called Zeni, or through Premium Z Coins. The Dragon Ball FighterZ loot boxes come in the form of Z Capsules (which hold cosmetic items and lobby avatars). Save your pitchforks for now as loot boxes are a perfectly fine mechanic for a multiplayer-driven game. While the secondary currency may raise a few red flags due to its name, the coins are actually earned due to duplicate items, not through spending actual money. The users do point out that there is a link to Xbox Store in the menus, but that could potentially be for downloadable characters or other season pass content. Should give all of you a good chance to practice your moves, as this new beta will include the same characters as the previous one.
The way that Dragon Ball FighterZ's loot boxes will be received completely ties to how they are implemented. Since the additional beta is coming so close to the release of the game, odds are that the roster of available characters will stay the same as it was in the most recent test, but we could see some more surprise Dragon Ball characters being added in.
Early last week, Bandai Namco announced the first round of open beta for "Dragon Ball FighterZ", as well as the PC hardware specs they recommend to run the game.
