Bandai Namco has some big Dragon Ball-related announcements in store for this month. In addition to teasing a new DLC character for Dragon Ball FighterZ, the publisher revealed that a brand-new Dragon Ball game is in development.
No further details about the new title have been announced yet, but Bandai Namco says it will be an action RPG «focusing on the world of Dragon Ball Z.» In the same tweet, the publisher hinted that Dragon Ball FighterZ will add «the Warrior from Universe 11» to its roster, presumably referring to Jiren from the Tournament of Power arc in Dragon Ball Super.

Bandai Namco indicated it will reveal more information during the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals, which take place later this month, on January 26-27. «We said that new information on FighterZ would be coming during the Finals, but we’re also planning to release other big news,» Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 producer Masayuki Hirano said during the recent Dragon Ball Games Super Showcase stream. While it seems Hirano is teasing more information about the new in-development RPG, it could also be that Bandai Namco’s «other big news» pertains to the existing Dragon Ball Z titles.
During the same stream, Dragon Ball FighterZ producer Tomoko Hiroki hinted that a second season of DLC is on the way for the game. The first season pass included eight additional fighters, with the most recent—Android 17—arriving back in September.
In other Dragon Ball news, Bandai Namco recently announced that Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission will receive a western release. The game is scheduled to launch for PC and Nintendo Switch on April 5.
