TWO VILLAINS JOIN THE FIGHT
A RELEASE DATE AND NEW TRAILERS SHOWCASE NEW ROSTER ADDITIONS
Dragon Ball FighterZ is easily shaping up to be the best entry in the Dragon Ball Z gaming franchise. It’s also a great testament to how respectful Aksys Games is when using someone else’s content for their productions.
The past two weeks saw major news break about the game, however nothing had been confirmed until now. A release date was announced last week for the game along with confirmation of two characters being added to the game, previously revealed only in Japan. Now two trailers have dropped showcasing some of the new additions.
The two new characters could be somewhat more iconic than the main characters. Captain Ginyu of the Ginyu force and Vegeta’s old sidekick, Nappa will now “join the fight”. Nappa is iconic for his meme worthy: “IT’S OVER 9000!” quote, which lives on in conventions everywhere, while Ginyu is famous his flamboyant poses with his team (somebody say #squadgoals).
Nappa can summon Saibamen to attack the opponent during his assists and main combos, while Ginyu can summon his force members to do the same. Many players will appreciate seeing the first first thing to kill Yamcha and fan favorite Ginyu Force members Recome and Jeice appear in the game, despite not being able to control them directly. Both Nappa and Ginyu will retain their signature moves as well with Nappa’s screaming energy blast and of course Captain Ginyu has his Body Change Attack.
The updated roster is as follows:
Nappa (with Saibamen)
Captain Ginyu (with the Ginyu Force)
Gohan (from Cell saga)
Future Trunks (Cell saga)
Frieza (Final and Golden form)
Majin Buu (Fat or Innocent form)
Android 18 & 17
Tien & Chiaotzu
Goku (Blue or God form)
Vegeta (Blue form)
The game drops January 26, 2018.
