Low Resolution Dragon Ball FighterZ Looks Like Old School SNES Game (VIDEO)
Dragon Ball FighterZ is finally released and people around the world are celebrating the joyous occasion by hurling fists and ki energy at each other. The fighting game by Arc System Works and Bandai Namco presents a truly stunning visual style capturing the look of the anime/manga series to near-perfection. While PC players’ instinct might be to crank those graphics to the highest level, an unexpected delight can also be had playing a low resolution Dragon Ball FighterZ.
As users on Twitter have demonstrated, a low resolution Dragon Ball FighterZ match hardly loses its visual spark, resulting in a style resembling old school fighting games of the past. The crisp pixelated fighters are very reminiscent of the Dragon Ball Z: Butoden games for Super Nintendo, likely giving retro enthusiasts a nice trip down nostalgia lane.

The process of achieving this 16-bit glory is pretty simple for those who own a PC version of Dragon Ball FighterZ. Inside the graphics menu lies a setting called “Resolution Scaling”, which controls how sharp or jagged the game looks in battle. Tuning this meter to the lowest possible value provides that desired pixelization and the best graphics the early-90s had to offer.

Setting aside this new way to play, the game appears to have plenty to offer in terms of both style and gameplay, as well as divisive pronunciations of Dragon Ball FighterZ. Adding to this excitement is the recent reveal of Majin Android 21, who joins an already packed roster including Beerus, Hit, and Goku Black, with more expected as future DLC. Dragon Ball FighterZ is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
