Dragon Ball FighterZ getting updated to Version 1.16 in early May 2019

Fight the good fight

Bandai Namco has announced another update for Dragon Ball FighterZ. This update will bring the game up to Version 1.16, and it fixes damage scaling issues and the Z Assist issue for Ginyu. This patch will make its way to Switch sometime in early May 2019. We'll bring you the full patch notes when the update is made available.

Bandai Namco comments on issues with Dragon Ball FighterZ after Version 1.15's release, working on fixes now

An update for the update is needed

Earlier this week, Bandai Namco put out Version 1.15 for Dragon Ball FighterZ, which was an absolutely massive update. Not surprisingly, some of that update has caused issues. Bandai Namco shared the following message on their Facebook page to let fans know they're aware.

After the balance adjustments applied on March 27th, we have discovered that some systems/moves are not operating as intended:

- Damage Scaling is not applied to certain moves
- Damage Scaling is not applied when the Vanish Move is activated at certain timings
- When the player’s Main Character is attacked, Ginyu’s Z Assist does not end

We are currently working to have the above fixed, so please bear with us for just a little longer.

You will be notified once we have a date on when the fixes will be made.

Thank you very much for your patience.

DRAGON BALL FighterZ Adds Goku From DRAGON BALL GT to its Impressive Roster of Characters

By popular demand?

DRAGON BALL FighterZ players will soon be able to compete as Goku from the Dragon Ball GT series against the ever-growing roster of characters spanning the Dragon Ball universe.

After an errant wish by Emperor Pilaf, Goku has been transformed into a child during the Dragon Ball GT series. This younger Goku packs a big punch with special attacks like the Super Kamehameha attack, transforming him into Super Saiyan 3. Goku is also able to use his Super Spirit Bomb, Power Pole, and Reverse Kamehameha to flatten the competition.

Goku (GT) is a paid DLC fighter, part of the FighterZ Pass 2 which is currently available for purchase for $24.99. The FighterZ Pass 2 includes six characters including the already released Jiren and Videl, as well as the previously announced upcoming characters; Broly (DBS) and Gogeta (SSGSS). DRAGON BALL FighterZ is available now on the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, PC via STEAM®, and Nintendo Switch™.
