Dragon Ball FighterZ Wiki

Arcade (アーケード Ākēdo) is a game mode in which the player fights against a series of computer-controlled opponents.


The mode basically plays out in a board game-like layout, with the player's main objective is reaching the goal spot at the end. The player starts out on the bottom path and can advance to a different path depending on how well they did in the previous battle. Achieving an S or A rank will rise them up the upper path, achieving a B or C rank takes them to the right path, and obtaining a D rank drops them down the bottom path.

Course Layout

There is a total of three different courses that can be challenged in this mode. The first course is the Snake Way Course which is a short and easy course with a total of three battles. The second course is the Extreme Gravity Chamber Course, a moderate course with a total of five battle. The third and last course is the Hyperbolic Time Chamber Course, a long and difficult course that has a total of seven battles. On each course, the strength of the enemy team will change depending on how well the player performs from the previous fight, with the bottom spots featuring easy opponents and the top spots racking with tough, formidable opponents. Clearing each course the first time will unlock a harder version of the course that was cleared. The harder courses have the same layout, but the enemy team have multiple buffs applied to them that such dealing immense damage from combos, reacting quickly against most attacks thrown at them, and building up their Ki Meter at an much higher rate.

Version 1.17 adds three additional courses which is a random variant of the first three courses.
