It’s pretty common now for most big games to sell DLC content — such as characters — via season passes. It seems that Dragon Ball FighterZ will follow in this trendn as Bandai Namco has released details for the game’s “FighterZ Pass,” alongside the game’s pre-order bonuses and release date.

The FighterZ Pass, which goes for $34.99, will give players access to 8 new DLC characters. While we’ve heard some talk about DLC characters in the past, including some leaks and rumors, this is the first time we’ve had confirmation on how many DLC characters the game may be getting. Each of these characters will come with their respective stamp, lobby avatars, and alternate colors. Meanwhile, players who pre-order the game will gain early access to the open beta, as well as early unlocks for Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta. This is in addition to 2 exclusive lobby avatars, and 3 stamps.

On top of all this, we now have a Western release date for the game. Bandai Namco has confirmed that the game will be arriving on January 26, 2018. Bandai Namco has also revealed some details on the online modes: you’ll be able to fight in “Circle Match” mode — where up to 8 players can enter into the room to fight against each other, with up to 4 fights happening simultaneously — and “World Match” mode, allowing players to choose between casual and ranked matches.

Finally, they’ve also detailed a special bundle called the Dragon Ball FighterZ Ultimate Edition. Players who pre-order this will not only get the FighterZ Pass and the pre-order bonuses, but they’ll also gain access to an Anime Music Pack — featuring 11 songs from the show — as well as a commentator voice pack.

A listing for the Dragon Ball FighterZ Ultimate Edition  is currently up on Microsoft’s store. As for the PlayStation 4 and PC, listings for the Ultimate Edition have yet to surface on either PSN or Steam.
