Dragon Ball FighterZ: Roadmap And Trailer Coming August 16
Bandai Namco eSports announced that they would be hosting an online event dedicated to the future of Dragon Ball FighterZ.
It’s been a few months since Bandai Namco put out a new character for Dragon Ball FighterZ with the release of Ultra Instinct Goku in May, but it seems like the evergreen anime fighter is getting its next character soon. This past Monday, Bandai Namco eSports announced that they would be hosting an online event dedicated to the future of the game.
On top of teasing the next character reveal, the next iteration of the Dragon Ball FighterZ Show, premiering on August 16th, will also discuss Bandai Namco-supported tournaments for the rest of the year. Announced via Twitter, the event is scheduled to take place on the game’s official Twitch channel.

The announcement has been met with both speculation and excitement from the game’s active community. The competitive Dragon Ball FighterZ community, much like many other fighting game communities, in particular, has had a rough year because of the mass shift to online competitions. Many members of the community are hoping that improved netcode is one of the game’s potential updates, but it’s likely in vain considering Bandai Namco’s notoriously tone-deaf practices with their games’ communities.
The next episode of the Dragon Ball FighterZ Show is premiering on Sunday at 2PM Eastern Time on the official Dragon Ball FighterZ Twitch channel. Bandai Namco hasn’t provided any details about how long the show is going to be, but considering they’ve been all but radio silent the past few months, they should have a decent amount to share about the future of the game.
