December 3, 2022, carried a lot of hope for Dragon Ball fans. And if you love playing Dragon Ball Super Card Game, Dragon Ball Fighter Z, or Dragon Ball Legendz, you’re in luck.

However, the news revealed wasn’t what most fans were expecting. There’s no word of new characters being added.

But we have the first live on-site tournament to look forward to. And Rollback will be added to Dragon Ball Fighter Z!

A tournament for everyone!

In a true spirit of competition, everyone is encouraged to enter the DRAGON BALL Games Battle Hour! It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a pro.

There’s still time to learn a game and try your luck. Although most details haven’t been announced yet, check the DRAGON BALL Games Battle Hour site and their official Twitter account for updates.

The tournament will be held in Los Vegas on March 4-5, 2023. You’ll also be able to watch the event online, but times haven’t been announced yet.

Dragon Ball Super Card Game will be getting a digital version. And the best advice for any Dragon Ball game is to play with multiple characters.

Especially in Dragon Ball Legends.

Special rules and a new way to play!

In Dragon Ball Fighter Z and the Dragon Ball Super Card Game, there’s an LCQ or Last Chance Qualifier to participate in before the tournament starts. Each game will have 256 spots open on a first-come-first-serve basis.

In a fun twist, the Dragon Ball Fighter Z is holding its pre-qualifiers right now, and there are three ways to earn points! The Power Plus Events and Power Events are held at pre-determined locations and offer the most points.

But the Tenkaichi Events are community events and offer online participation. And for an extra twist, the amount of points available is determined by the number of participants.

The top 18 players will earn tournament slots in the Finals. In addition, two more slots are held for the winners of the LCQ.

Dragon Ball Legends will have a Swiss-system tournament. All players get to play an equal number of rounds, regardless of how many they win.

But winning earns you points, and the top 8 players will advance to the championships on Day 2. This is the only time you’ll be able to play Dragon Ball Legends in an on-site tournament.

There’s also a Special Pick Rule, where players take turns picking a card for their party and one for their opponent until both have six. Finally, the Dragon Ball Super Card Game will have 80 spots, and this is the first time the finals have been in an on-site location.

The top 7 players will compete in the championships, but there haven’t been any special rules announced. Here’s hoping tomorrow’s broadcast answers our questions about other aspects of the Dragon Ball franchise.
