Bandai Namco has announced three more playable characters will be joining the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster of fighters. The three-eyed clan descendent Tien, and the ever underwhelming Yamcha have been added to the expanding cast, and the trailer also introduced a new character, Android 21. Speaking of Yamcha, he was such an annoying git I’m not quite sure what’s worse: the awful Dragon Ball Evolution movie or him. Anyway, roll on 2018 when I can whoop his ass.
A new trailer mostly focuses on the newest addition to the Dragon Ball cast, Android 21, and apparently the Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama oversaw the design of this mysterious new character. All that’s known about her so far is that she’s a scientist who possesses the same level of knowledge as Dr. Gero, the creator of the Androids, and she’s connect to Android 16 somehow. Like you, I want to know what her deal is.
The 3v3 brawler is being developed by Guilty Gear developers, Arc System Works, and it’s looking like it could be a brilliant game. The visuals look fantastic, the game is a fast and frenetic affair, and combined with the Dragon Ball storyline it could well be an insanely good game (as long as it gets the server issues from the beta fixed).
Dragon Ball FighterZ will be released in February 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
