In the daily program for August 16, we begin with the long-awaited arrival of the Dragon Ball license on Fortnite. We continue with a confession from Microsoft on Xbox One sales before ending with Disney+ and the airing of the final arc of Bleach. The Daily, let’s go!
Xbox One defeats PS4
The rivalry between Xbox and Playstation is not new. If we already knew that Playstation had won the sales battle for the previous generation of consoles, Microsoft had never revealed the numbers for the Xbox One. With Microsoft currently in the midst of an acquisition of Activision Blizzard, the two console makers have started a new battle for claims. Amidst these announcements, Microsoft admitted that Sony sold twice as many consoles as Xbox over the last generation. In other words, the PS4 has sold 117 million units according to the latest figures, which means that the Xbox One has only sold around 58.5 million units. It’s true that The Xbox One suffered some glitches upon its release
Dragonball is coming to Fortnite!
The collaboration between Epic Games’ Battle Royale and the legendary manga by Akira Toriyama is finally here! Four Dragon Ball heroes arrive on the Fortnite map: Goku, Vegeta, Beerus, and Bulma. Characters like Goku can transform into Super Saiyan and Ultra Instinct through their different skins. The content of this collaboration is very rich, with accessories, gliders and activities. It is possible to complete quests to get rewards like a Dragon Ball. The Magic Cloud and the Kaméhaméha will also be usable in-game, and it will even be possible to watch a selection of Dragon Ball Super episodes at leisure. The special Dragon Ball map will also appear in-game on August 19th.
Directing at Disney+ for the sequel to Bleach?
Along with One Piece and Naruto, Bleach is one of the most popular manga in recent years. In order to save his family, Ichigo Kurosaki must become a Shinigami, a warrior responsible for transporting the deceased to the other world. When Tite Kubo’s 74-volume manga ended a few years ago, his anime adaptation was put on hold for quite a while. It will resume soon and we will witness the thousand year bloody war. The Anime Expo had unveiled a very promising beautiful trailer. While we were expecting to discover the final arc on Crunchyroll, now with the rest of the seasons we’re hearing more and more rumors stating that Disney+ has regained the broadcast rights to the anime. The simulcast principle then seems to be in jeopardy, and it could also be that the platform decides to wait for the end of the Japanese broadcast to put all the episodes online. The other fear for Bleach fans is the issue of censorship, which the anime has fallen victim to in the past. It remains to be seen if these rumors will become an official announcement by October, when Bleach is expected to air.
