Dragon Ball FighterZ is one of the most popular anime games presently available, being a traditional 3-in 3 team 2D from Bandai Namco, in collaboration with Arc System Works. Being based on the enduringly popular Dragon Ball IP, it has seen impressive post-launch support and sales, with Dragon Ball FighterZ selling over 8 million copies last year. The game's popularity and gameplay have also seen it make waves in the battling game local area, with an active cutthroat scene, with FighterZ being a spotlight of various tournaments, such as EVO and Bandai Namco's own World Championship. While the initial plan for the tournament was an in-person occasion, this is not true anymore.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many events and organizations were forced to change how to handle its operations. Major gaming industry events had to either be scaled down or canceled through and through. Some events like E3 2022 will be held online just, while others like the aforementioned EVO will be getting back to a live in-person tournament. On account of Bandai Namco's tournament, the grand finals of this championship will have to be required to be postponed indefinitely.
This was announced on Bandai Namco's ESports Twitter account, where the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Championship Finals originally scheduled in February will be postponed indefinitely. The post noted that the organizers had been studying solutions for the occasion to be held safely for the players and other concerned parties. Be that as it may, out of worry for everybody's safety, the occasion will have to be required to be postponed, with future updates about the tournament being held getting looked at.
A message from Dragon Ball FighterZ maker, Tomoko Hiroki, notes that this special occasion will be held during Dragon Ball Games Battle Hour 2022, a special occasion held by Bandai Namco that will give out updates for various games being developed that use the IP. While the tournament was originally going to be streamed and broadcasted through this occasion, the publisher is teasing some news about FighterZ regardless.
Some fans are trusting that the upcoming Battle Hour 2022 occasion could shed some light on the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ DLC, an alternate form of Android 21 in her Lab Coat. The DLC itself has gotten some fans speculating assuming her addition will be as a standalone character, or a part of a fourth season pass. Some fans trust that assuming the game is getting another season of DLC, more obscure or fan-favorites from either from the original, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, or Dragon Ball Super would be added to the game as well.
