Dragon Ball FighterZ Open Beta Hits August 9

Dragon Ball FighterZ was announced for the Nintendo Switch at this year’s E3 and it’s inching closer to its September 28, 2018 release date. The game is getting an open beta on August 9 so you can try out the game for free. Nice!



Before the full power of DRAGON BALL FighterZ is unleashed upon the Nintendo Switch system, fans will be able to get a taste of what’s to come with the free Open Beta!

Here are some details:

August 3rd: Pre-load the Open Beta Client by downloading it from the game page on or on Nintendo eShop. Players won’t be able to play until the Beta begins, but this is a great way to get ready!

August 9th (9:00pm PDT): Official release of the Open Beta on the Nintendo eShop and start of the Open Beta session (all players can now launch the game and have access to the online game servers).

August 11th (11:59pm PDT): The Open Beta period ends.

Players will be able to choose amongst 23 of their favorite DRAGON BALL FighterZ characters for this Open Beta and take them into battle in Arena Match, Ring Match, and Ring Party Match modes. Or they can spend some time in Practice Battle Tutorial mode to get some training in before taking on real life opponents.

DRAGON BALL FighterZ for the Nintendo Switch is slated to launch in the Americas on September 28, 2018.
