Bandai Namco released the opening cinematic for Dragon Ball FighterZ this evening.

The developers note that "a new contender is coming for the fighting game throne!" as "DBFZ is fighting for a new generation."

The opening cinematic features many the playable cast members in quickly edited segments, with that driving and awesome music the franchise is so well known for.

Fans will see splash screens for these 21 characters in the cinematic trailer: Goku, Vegeta, Trunks, Teen Gohan, Adult Gohan, Piccolo, Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, Android 18, Android 16, Nappa, Captain Ginyu, Frieza, Cell, Majin Buu, Kid Buu, Gotenks, Hit, Goku Black and Beerus.

This is a 3v3 fighter developed by Arc System Works. It's in a similar vein to the Marvel vs. Capcom series, with its use of assists, and team structured combat and combos. To score a KO, all three opponents on the same team must be defeated.

This title will be released on January 26th, 2018, on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. You can check out the opening cinematic for the game below, along with some screen captures of the character intro screens, logo, and pre-order bonus information. Pre-ordering the game grants you early access to SSGSS Goku and Vegeta.

The open beta comes out on January 14-15, 2018, but if you pre-order, you can get in on the action a day earlier.
