Tomoko Hiroki, the producer for Dragon Ball FighterZ at Bandai Namco, is throwing her hat into the ring as an entrant into the game’s most significant fighting video game tournament debut at EVO 2018.
In a online video uploaded to Bandai Namco’s Youtube channel nowadays, Hiroki thanked admirers for supporting Dragon Ball FighterZ (to the tune of several million sold already) right before asserting that she herself will be entering the tournament. Hiroki then did a Vegeta fist-bump and a Goku salute, signing off.
The announcement is producing a stir as usually builders of a fighting video game have not been permitted to compete, but the concern is a very little a lot more complex with Hiroki remaining a producer who takes place to be great at the video game operating at its publisher. On the other hand, she has experienced a good deal a lot more time to enjoy the video game than rather considerably any person else, but then it raises the concern of no matter if fighting video game gamers who get to enjoy video games early have unfair advantages.
We received to chat with Hiroki in the course of our thirty day period of Dragon Ball FighterZ coverage in 2017 as she talked to us about the tale of the video game. You can test out the online video underneath.
