Is her power level high enough?
The dream of any competitive gamer is to be better than the developers. When you dedicate years towards the creation of a game, you tend to get pretty good at playing it. Now Dragon Ball FighterZ players will have their chance at catching this dream at one of the biggest eSports events of the year, EVO 2018.
Bandai Namco has released a video recently where the Dragon Ball FighterZ Producer Tomoko Hiroki spoke directly to the fans. She tells the viewer to practice up for Dragon Ball FighterZ, because she will be entering the competition. Originally seen in a live stream, The clip experienced audio issues that may have kept viewers from hearing the entire message.
This has sparked heavy debate on whether or not she is actually that skilled with the game. We saw Reggie Fils Aime talk a big game when he fought against top Super Smash Bros player Hungrybox, only to play poorly and lose hard. Will this be another instance of an executive promoting the game, or will she show everyone that she is not a Saiyan to be reckoned with? To her credit, she is the Dragon Ball FighterZ Producer, while Reggie is the president of Nintendo of America.
Even without promotional stunts, Dragon Ball FighterZ is on the top of every fighting game fan’s minds. Having released 2 weeks ago today, it remains the brawler-to-be. The game had over 44,000 concurrent players on Steam and currently sits at #6 on Xbox’s Top Paid games list. The game’s importance is seen with this years EVO lineup. FighterZ not only has a main stage slot but on the Sunday finals as well.
Evo 2018 World Finals will be held at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on August 3-5.
