Dragon Ball FighterZ, the game beloved by Dragon Ball and fighting game fans alike, added Party Battle and FighterZ Cup mode in a free update last week, on May 9. The first Party Battle event arrives today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, according to Bandai Namco.
Bandai Namco announced the new modes and details of the event in a video featuring game producer Tomoko Hiroki. Party Battle is a new mode that adds co-op to the game, allowing three players to form a team to take on powerful challengers. Meanwhile, the FighterZ Cup is a competition allowing players to fight and collect points for their Z Union, increasing their rank.
Starting today, May 18, and ending on May 21, “The Emperor Strikes Back” event pits players against the mighty Frieza.
