    Edit 3:

    The final answer is that the game has lootboxes, but they can’t be bought with real money.



    Here’s a sample of what you can get in them:





    Original:

    From DrDogg who has an early copy:

    Edit:

    Here's the purported purchase screen. Keep in mind, you get "Premium Z Coins" from dupes, and it's 10 for a box. The server isn't up, so we can't confirm for certain that you can also buy Premium Z Coins, though they have the word Premium in the title, and they're not just giving you Zeni for dupes for some reason.

    And the rate at which you get Zeni:

    More about the Zeni rate:

    It is worth noting the current ingame explanation does not explicitly note that Z coins can be bought:

    Edit 2:

    There's an Xbox Store prompt on the Xbox version.

    Is it just for lobby avatars or other things like colors and costumes?

    It was perfect until that...but if it's only for cosmetic, I'm cool with it.

    Ah crap. Well, at least it's for those lobby chibivatars.

    Why would you pay for that???

    If they have lootboxes should have made their dlc characters free.

    I have to know what's locked behind loot boxes first

    No point in being upset until we know that at least

    Ah, this would have been to good heh.
    Just hope it's limited avatar stuff otherwise it might be a problem.

    Meh not a big deal as its just for lobby avatars, costume colors, titles, and z stamps. Hopefully it can be earned at a decent rate just by playing online matches normally.

    ok, so the game has "loot box"...


    I'll wait for more details before I decide how I feel.

    Honestly the surprise aspect of this makes it way worse. Why not just be transparent about this beforehand?

    If it's only lobby characters/skins them I'm fine with it.

    Also if this is similar to Xrd Rev, this is possibly how SSB Goku and Vegeta are unlocked without the Day One Edition.

    To note, Raven was an early unlock in that game, so later had to be unlocked either via the fishing game RNG, or bought unlock via the webstore.

    What is this supposed to pay for? Server costs? The season pass funds itself and as far as I'm aware there isn't free dlc or content updates planned.

    We using microtransactions to justify patching the game or something? Lol

    I'd imagine that SSJB Goku & Vegeta will be unlocked via Story Mode.

    And assuming that the loot boxes are mainly for the chibi lobby avatars, it's no skin off my back.

    Completely misleading. This is only for the online lobby. It has zero effect on the actual game.

    Im impressed that Bamco didnt tried to sell lootboxes with Tekken 7. Well, avatar lobbies is not a big deal

    I mean that's dumb and I maintain that even cosmetic loot boxes are shit if you need to pay for them, but honestly I do have to wonder who actually cares that much about a lobby avatar to pay for lootboxes. I'm sure there are people who would I mean, but it's a lot less offensive than making actual in fight alt costume and palette swaps as lootboxes (though I understand why any sort of true alt costume in DBFZ is unlikely to happen in any capacity)

    lmao It'll be interesting to see the reaction of people in the internet now.

    I already made the preorder and I'm going to play offline so no problem for me.

    That’s pretty innocent. But usually when you have loot boxes I would like to see free DLC. I’m assuming we’ll still be buying the new characters with real money.

    I wonder how many Lobby Avatars they added if they're in random loot.

    If you charge for dlc you should not include loot boxes.

    Let it be just cosmetic and vanity items.

    Anything that changes gameplay tied to paid RNG is BS.

    Honestly I'd probably be more upset if I didn't suspect that these avatars only existed as a way to sell lootboxes in the first place and that we wouldn't just be getting something like the beta where the avatars are just chibi versions of the playable characters with no frills attached without this

    At least make the DLC characters free if you are going to put loot boxes in any way. Even if it's for chibivatars.

    Can we have a proof screenshot at least?

    Also if its the case its just the same like fishing in Guilty Gear only with another option to obtain.

    More options are a good thing.
