Dragon Ball FighterZ is developed by Arc System Works and published by Bandai Namco for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via Steam). This Dragon Ball FighterZ guide will serve as a hub for all of our game content, including strategies and advice for each character, as well as our beta coverage and how to gain access to any hidden characters. We’ll be continually updating this Dragon Ball FighterZ guide to make sure the most recent information is available to you, so keep checking back for more over the next few months.

At the moment Dragon Ball FighterZ has concluded a closed beta, with an open beta coming up in January. All of our current coverage of the game comes from the closed beta and anything we learned before the closed beta. We’ll have additional information during the open beta and once the game has finally released, so stay tuned to Prima Games for more!

Dragon Ball FighterZ Quick Tips

  • To punish a Super Dash you can press Down + Heavy Attack with precise timing.
  • Super Dash will go through most projectile attacks that are not super moves or command special moves.
  • Most jumping attacks need to be blocked from a standing position. If you crouch you will get hit.
  • Use Vanish to punish raw super moves used outside of a combo. You can perform a Vanish during the starting animation of a super move.
  • Forward + Medium Attack is a universal overhead attack for all characters.
  • You can call certain assists to extend combos or cover your Super Dash approach, making it hard to punish.
