Bandai Namco released Dragon Ball FighterZ on PC, PS4 and Xbox One last Friday and the game has been getting a lot of praise from both critics and fans alike. That being said, the only major issue the game has been experiencing is its online issues.
Bandai Namco posted the following message on its official Facebook page: “The launch of DRAGON BALL FighterZ has been nothing short of phenomenal in regards to support from Dragon Ball and fighting game fans. However, a side-effect of this massive support has been online-play difficulties that could not have been anticipated without the actual launch of the game taking place.
We are in constant communication with the dev team, keeping them apprised of the issues, and they are working on solutions to improve the online-play experience for DRAGON BALL FighterZ. We want to thank everyone for their continued patience and we’ll share more news pertaining to improvements for DRAGON BALL FighterZ’s online-play experience as soon as they are available.”
I have the game on Xbox One at the moment and the online issues are not as bad as they were in the beta. However, there are still issues that need to be addressed in order for the online experience to run smoothly for all gamers.
Dragon Ball FighterZ just came out, although this does not mean support for the game is finished. There will be more DLC and possibly more stages released in the near future. After all, there are lots of characters that make an appearance in the game, but are not playable for some reason or another. The biggest and weirdest snub is Android 17 who appears a lot in the story mode, but is only featured as an assist character for Android 18.
