These adding of characters from various series of the Dragon Ball universe and the recent addition of Broly actually in FighterZ Pass DLC pack suggests that Namco is very open minded about including characters from movies. Costing you only $34.99, the pack reportedly contains a total of eight players and only two are revealed so far while the others are still to be announced.

Bardock is Goku’s father who died fighting Frieza and his character appeared in many in flashbacks of Dragon Ball Z. In Dragon Ball FighterZ, he has a Super Special Attack called “Revenger Assault” and it transforms him to a Super Saiyan even though it is completely non-canon. Broly on the other hand is an accomplished villain who starred in three of the Dragon Ball films. His powerful energy based attack “Gigantic Meteor” is more than capable to demolish his arch-enemy Goku.

The game is already on a 2.5D display, which is nearly 3D but all the characters of the series look like some sick animated piece picked up straight from the TV show. Dragon Ball FighterZ is now getting rendered in native 4K and developers are making sure that as the game progresses, it keeps the frame-rate stable at all times. That means those drawings will load smoothly even on 1080p screen display.

If you think that these image augmentations may interrupt the gameplay anyhow as it has to maintain a steady frame-rate, then you are wrong. Instead, this constant frame-rate flow will let you execute your next counter or the perfect combos on your opponent at the right time. So, the gameplay experience is obviously having some impact but they are all positives. Don't they? Other than that, the improved graphics increases your satisfaction of a battle even more.

Because Dragon Ball FighterZ is uses cell-shading rendering, the development team supersampled the 4K resolution and high-quality anti-aliasing aspects of the game. In higher resolution, the fight still needs to look good and that needs extra care for the enhancement process. The dynamic resolution on Xbox One X was such a help to maintain the balance of both graphical polished look and that acute frame-rate.

Since they eventually managed to keep pace with the graphics and frame ratio for the gameplay, the game will definitely make you feel as a part of original anime.
