The path of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and Dragon Ball FighterZ: always on top
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was originally released on PS4 and Xbox One in October 2016; a remarkable title, albeit with plenty of room for improvement. Five years later, the title is also available on Steam, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia supported by a community that has not stopped supporting the title thanks, precisely, to the support that Dimps has given to the work: expansions, free content and payment, events, quality of life improvements … Never has a Dragon Ball title received support for so long. We still have no news of an eventual Dragon Ball Xenoverse 3.
For its part, Dragon Ball FighterZ made us rise from the chair at that E3 2017, when it was officially revealed what was for many a dream: Arc System Works (BlazBlue, Guilty Gear) in charge of a 2D Dragon Ball fighting game . And an excellent product came out, with an emerging competitive scene behind it and a model based on seasons that has not stopped growing.
After its premiere on PS4, Xbox One and PC in January 2018, it later arrived on Nintendo Switch. The fans do not imagine now a sequel given his state of health; the only big request is the rollback netcode that Guilty Gear Strive has already integrated, which would translate into a much more accurate and improved gaming experience in online sessions.
