Dragon Ball FighterZ is beating Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite to a pulp

Dragon Ball FighterZ and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite have been drumming up a lot of attention at E3 2017, with both of these fast-paced, hyperactive 2.5D fighters playable on the show floor. The former premiered during the Xbox E3 2017 press conference, while the latter was at Sony's E3 2017 press conference, and both games involve multi-character teams duking it out at breakneck speeds with flashy combos and screen-filling super attacks. They seem to be locked in heated battle over fighting game fans' attention. And while the fighting game community has an unfair reputation for being split up into divided tribes - Street Fighter fans, anime fighters, Smash players, and so forth - DBFZ and MvCI seem to be sending people into a frenzy of praising one and dissing the other.

With the recent article regarding no X-Men in the new Marvel vs Capcom, I can see why people would rather go to DBZ. There's enough characters for a good start, there's also room for expansion later down the road, and it's already looking to be considered for esports in the future. This game is bringing to the table what Marvel vs Capcom did in the past - a fun, fast paced fighting game.

I grew up playing 1 and 2 (own both on the PS3, and the DreamCast), and sad to hear the recent news regarding the X-Men characters in the new Marvel vs Capcom.

Dragon ball ps2 era is returning to be best and great fighting game. Its looks better than injustise 2, SF5 and looks even better than MvsC.
Its seems to, DBZ will be at T7 level.

AshleeEmerson2524d ago

If by T7 you mean Tekken 7 the I fully agree...

Tekken 7 is incredible and I really feel this one has elements to be the deep Tekken of 2d fighting (fingers crossed).

The character roster of DBZ And gorgeous graphics give it the edge over Marvel. But if they dont give English voice acting to Dbz then that small detail may turn off alot of gamers. They need to appeal to as many people as possible of they want to beat Marvel.

I think its interesting that xbox featured Dbz at e3 but did not mention any exclusive content.

This is the DBZ fighting game people have always wanted.

I have never been a fan of Marvel VS Capcom.

TH3 GAM32524d ago

As a Marvel vs Capcom fan, look at the games side by side. In terms of looks, it's not even close. Fighters looks way better and that's not even getting into gameplay.

"This is the DBZ game people always wanted"

I must be the only one who remembers Dragon Ball Z: Final Bought on PS1.

Anyway, the game simply looks better than infinite. I don't like the art style they started using since MvC3. It also feels way slower than MvC2. It's strange because they had a perfect formula but messed with it too much.

DBZ Fighter is like MvC2 + Guilty Gear + DBZ Characters. Can't lose with that.

TC7312524d ago

Ummm...Final Bout was GT. And it was awful...like GT.

Moe-Gunz2523d ago

It was GT but wasn't awful to me. The traditional fighting style was done before in the name of Dragonball. That's my point, people are acting like this is the first time.

However, this is the first time for it to be a big deal. Especially with the Guilty Gear engine behind it, if that's true.

Dragon Ball FighterZ's Rollback Update Was Too Little Too Late

Daniyal from eXputer: "Dragon Ball FighterZ was so close to a revival but ineffective communication and a dubious launch of an anticipated update botched that hope."

5 years too late, no cross-play and ps5 and ps4 cant play together and on pc u have delay based and roll back which u can choose which will divide the player base even more since some wont know the difference and some of the game modes are not compatible with rollback... like why, you should have just made fighterz 2 and implement it properly there what is this half assed shit?
Better than nothing i guess? i don't even know man..
