In the fighting game community of late, those stories often involve Dominique SonicFox McLean, and, when it comes to DBFZ, his rival Goichi “GO1” Kishida. This year, it was GO1 who triumphed but SonicFox didn t seem to mind one bit.

Therefore, we would like to give out the following event rewards to all Steam users who log into the game by July 24th: • 20,000 Zeni • 25 Premium Z Coins • 60,000 Zeni • "Extreme Butoden: Rocky Area" BGM Thank you for your understanding and continuous support on DRAGON BALL FighterZ! Xbox accidentally reveals the next DLC character coming to Dragon Ball FighterZMay 11, 2019 - PC GamerMicrosoft's Major Nelson has accidentally announced the next DLC character coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ will be Janemba from Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn. With Kid Goku GT released earlier this week, thoughts had turned to who the fourth and final DLC character might be. But while Bandai Namco had yet to confirm any details, Xbox's Director of Programming, Larry Hryb, seemingly let the secret slip during the latest installment of his This Week on Xbox show (jump to 3.10). As EventHubs (thanks, Eurogamer ) notes, nowhere had Bandai nor developer Arc System Works confirmed that the antagonist from Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn was coming to the game, so a casual mention of a Janemba "skin" immediately caught the attention of the Dragon Ball FighterZ community. After the gaff, the video description of the video was amended to clarify that "the latest update pack will include: Goku GT (playable character), one new Lobby Avatar, and one new Z Stamp", and even the official Xbox Twitter account poked a little fun. "Apparently Xbox just leaked Janemba for Dragon Ball FighterZ," teased a comment on Twitter, to which Xbox replied (emphasis ours): "Apparently Xbox just announced Janemba for Dragon Ball FighterZ. FTFY." In our Dragon Ball FighterZ review we gave it 83, stating that "not only is Dragon Ball FighterZ comfortably the best game this licence has ever produced, it’s a cracking fighting game, too." Dragon Ball FighterZ's next DLC character revealed by an unlikely sourceMay 11, 2019 - EurogamerThe next DLC character for Dragon Ball FighterZ is Janemba - according to Microsoft's Major Nelson. During the latest episode of This Week on Xbox, Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb casually mentions GT Goku and Janemba skins are out now for Arc System Works' superb fighting game (skip to the 3.10 mark). While GT Goku is indeed out now for Dragon Ball FighterZ, as EventHubs points out nowhere in the game currently is Janemba mentioned. Major Nelson's use of the word "skins" is confusing, and there's nothing in the game's latest update that could relate to such a thing. So, we're left with the inevitable conclusion: Major Nelson leaked Janemba as the fourth and only unannounced DLC character for Dragon Ball FighterZ season two. Read more It's Goku Day!

Watch the annouincement trailer: Ball FighterZ Becomes Evo's Highest Watched Game Ever on TwitchAug 6, 2018 - GitHypBeing the much newer game with the most viewers at last month’s CEO tournament, we predicted that Dragon Ball FighterZ would take the #1 spot at the biggest fighting game event of the year, Evolution Championship Series 2018. However, Day 1 and Day 2 of Evo 2018 made it seem like that might not be the case… and surprisingly, Capcom’s Street Fighter V more than doubled FighterZ viewer counts on Twitch during the first two days of this year's event. But as with any good FGC comeback story, the fan base for Dragon Ball FighterZ turned up in record numbers on Sunday for the final fight. Hitting a peak of 258k concurrent viewers on Twitch, DBFZ wasn't just the most watched game at Evo 2018, it was the highest viewer count ever for an Evo main event on Twitch. At this year's annual tournament in Vegas, DBFZ proved to be the most popular choice among those actually attending the event with the most registered entrants. The game's success on Twitch, however, was due in large part to it being North America's last chance to take home a big win on Sunday night. And the finale for Namco Bandai's FighterZ certainly did not disappoint with an ending that was entertaining to say the least as NA’s SonicFox took home the victory over Japan's Go1 in dramatic fashion. Evo's main event, Street Fighter V, saw a huge drop-off in viewers following the DBFZ finals. And if not for a random host from Twitch's top streamer, Ninja, which gave the game an instant boost of ~60k viewers, SFV might not have even topped Tekken 7 and Super Smash Bros. Ninja’s Fortnite viewers were also quick to drop-off and Street Fighter V's peak of 215k viewers fell to 170k as the finals went on late into the AM and the UK’s Problem-X took home the win over Japan's Tokido. When including SFV’s boost from Ninja, all of Evo 2018's main stage games all gained popularity this year with Super Smash Bros. Melee, Tekken 7, and Guilty Gear all having increases in viewership when compared to Evo 2017.Dragon Ball FighterZ was the Most Watched Game at CEO 2018 on TwitchJul 3, 2018 - GitHypWith CEO being the last major stop on the road to the summer's biggest fighting game event, the Evolution Championship Series in Vegas, the smaller Florida-based event has become one of the most exciting tournaments to watch on Twitch. This year’s Community Effort Orlando took place in Daytona and as usual resulted in many clip-worthy player entrances as the tournament once again pitted competitors head-to-head in the middle of a boxing/wrestling ring. With 663 entrants competing in the Dragon Ball FighterZ bracket, GGP Kazunoko took home the W in Grand Finals beating CO Go1. Despite not being the main event, DBFZ was actually the most watched game of CEO 2018 with a peak of 52k viewers watching the finals on Twitch. CEO’s main event, Street Fighter V’s Grand Finals, peaked at 46k viewers on Twitch as FD Fujimura beat DouyuTV Xiao Hai. SFV was slightly down from last year’s CEO main event peak of 49k viewers. While Tekken 7 came in third with 39k viewers during its finale that featured UYU JeonDDing beating UYU Qudans. And although it was the most played game at this year's CEO with 679 entrants, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U ranked in as the fourth most watched game on Twitch with 21k viewers as Echo Fox MVG MkLeo defeated Tweek in its main event. Now, Capcom really needs a new game announcement at this year's Evo to get members of the FGC hyped. After the publisher bet big on the failed launch of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, other developers have been scooping up the franchise's player base. Even with the current most popular fighting games, Bandai Namco is set to launch even more new games like Soulcalibur VI in October and Jump Force next year... and even Nintendo is gunning for the top spot now with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launching before the end of 2018. Evo 2018’s official schedule hasn’t been released yet, but with Tekken having more players on Steam and Dragon Ball having more viewers on Twitch, we can’t imagine SFV will be able to hold on to its main event status much longer.Dragon Ball FighterZ Player Base Already Down 80% After First Two Weeks on SteamFeb 12, 2018 - GitHypDragon Ball FighterZ’s concurrent player count managed to break just over 9,000 this past weekend on Steam. But compared to its record-breaking launch, the most played fighting game ever on Steam didn’t have a good second week with the player base already down 80%. Peaking at 44.3k players two weeks ago, DBFZ more than doubled the previous record-holder Tekken 7’s 18.7k players at launch. However, DBFZ’s player base has begun to decline at a much faster rate than Tekken, which took over two months to lose 80% of its player base. [caption id="attachment_326748" align="aligncenter" width="786"] Dragon Ball FighterZ Peak Players per Hour on Steam via GitHyp[/caption] GitHyp originally predicted that DBFZ would be the biggest fighting game launch ever on Steam. Yet, we also questioned if it had the staying power that fighting games seem to always lack. Players simply don’t tend to stick around for long after getting beat up on. And despite very positive reviews from critics and players alike, the same seems to be true with DBFZ even after all the hype. That being said, fighting games don’t always die quick deaths outside of the fighting game community. The free-to-play, Brawlhalla, started with 7k players back in November 2015. And since leaving early access the Super Smash Bros.-inspired fighter has seen its player base grow over the past two years. Just this past weekend, Brawlhalla pulled in 11.6k concurrent players, topping DBFZ during the two games’ peak hours. Oddly, even with its solid player base that continues to outlast other big name fighting games on Steam, Brawlhalla hasn’t caught on with the competitive FGC and wasn’t able to secure a spot at Evo 2018. The lineup for the biggest fighting game event of the year was announced last week where two Smash Bros., Street Fighter V, Tekken 7, and DBFZ will be headlining. That all could all change at Evo 2019 with DBFZ likely to drop down to SFV and Tekken 7 numbers and Brawlhalla pulling in more players than the big three combined.
