Today’s September 2017 issue of Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine in Japan reveals Piccolo and Kuririn, alongside the previously-revealed Trunks, as playable characters in the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ set for release in early 2018.

The splash pins Piccolo as a “4” on both technique and reach (while at “3” on energy and power and a “2” on speed), who will be able to extend his arms to hold opponents. Piccolo’s special moves will include the Makankōsappō and the Gekiretsukōdan.

The splash pins Kuririn as a “4” on both energy and technique (while at “3” on speed, “2” power, and “1” on reach), who is set up to be a more versatile character. Kuririn’s special moves will include the Kienzan and splitting energy wave.

Confirmed playable characters now include Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Freeza, Cell, Boo, Trunks, Piccolo, and Kuririn.

The 3-on-3, “2.5D” fighting game is set for an “early 2018” release worldwide and is under development by Arc System Works for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam). The game is advertised as running at a 1080p resolution and 60fps frame rate, with higher resolutions available on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles. A closed beta is set for this summer, with registrations opening next week.

Arc previously worked on Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden for the Nintendo 3DS, as well as the Super Sonic Warriors games (Bukū Tōgeki and Bukū Ressen) on the Nintendo Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS. The developer is otherwise known for their Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series of fighting games.
