Arc System Works has released a new patch for Dragon Ball FighterZ, its successful fighting game based on the long-running anime franchise. There aren’t any balance changes – the focus with this update is to add several bug fixes and other changes.
One new feature that’s been added is Party Match that will let you seek out five other players to compete with. For Arcade Mode, players will now have the option to “Return to Character Selection” or “Return to Course Selection” once a particular course has been completed. Ranked and Casual modes will also provide a small rumble noise to notify you when an opponent has been located.
In terms of bug fixes, there’s a fix for Goku Black disappearing when executing a special move; one that prevented Frieza from using his “You Must Die by My Hand!” move when on the ground after transforming into Golden Frieza; and much more. Check out the full patch notes below.
