Starting in September we will know the participants of each league, while in October the competition will be kicked off. The initial format will be a well-known one: round robin. A tournament for everyone with eight participants in each league as against everyone from which four classified will come out; always under FT5 record (the first with five wins, wins).
From that top-4 we will have a one-month playoff with twenty participants in total (four for five championships) of which we will know the final winner. In total, three months of pure competition with more than 40 of the best Dragon Ball FighterZ players on the planet.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The game is one of the biggest hits in the fighting genre of the current generation with more than 5 million units sold. One of the main contenders on the Spanish scene for the Arc System Works title is Shanks, a new Red Bull athlete and Vodafone Giants player, whom we have been able to interview. It is also the first national Top-8 in EVO history.
