“Black Hair” Son Goku & Vegeta Announced as Forthcoming DLC in “Dragon Ball FighterZ”
Published by 24 July 2018, 9:27 AM EDT

In conjunction with this week’s September 2018 of Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine in Japan, the standard (black-haired, non-Super Saiyan) forms of Son Goku and Vegeta have (unsurprisingly) been formally revealed as forthcoming DLC characters in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Goku’s Meteor Attack is the Genki-Dama, which is — as one would expect — slow to perform but extremely powerful. The Kaiō-Ken powers up in line with the number of defeated teammates.

Vegeta’s Meteor Attack is the “Galaxy Breaker”, the move used to kill Nappa in the original story. His Gyalik-Hō fires an energy blast toward the ground, and can be used in the air.

Both characters will launch in August for ¥500 each, or as part of the game’s season pass.

The 3-on-3, “2.5D” fighting game is developed by Arc System Works and is currently available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam); on these systems, the game runs at a 1080p resolution and 60fps frame rate, with higher resolutions available on the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles, as well as the PC. A Nintendo Switch port is due in 2018. Playable characters include Son Goku, Son Gohan (Cell arc design), Vegeta, Freeza, Cell, Boo (Good), Trunks, Piccolo, Kuririn, #16, #18 (with #17), Yamcha, Tenshinhan (with Chiaotzu), Ginyu (with teammates), Nappa (with Saibaimen), Gotenks, Son Gohan (Boo arc design), Boo (Pure), Hit, Beerus, and Goku Black (with Zamasu), as well as “Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan” (SSGSS, or “Super Saiyan Blue”) versions of Goku and Vegeta that can be accessed early via pre-orders or unlocked through gameplay. The Akira Toriyama-designed “#21” is a new character central to the game’s story mode. Broli, Bardock, Vegetto, and Merged Zamasu were the first four of eight promised paid downloadable characters released thus far; the announcement of Goku and Vegeta leave two remaining to be officially revealed.

Dragon Ball FighterZ was originally released 26 January 2018 in North America and Europe, and 01 February 2018 in Japan. Alongside its Japanese release, Bandai Namco announced that they had shipped two million copies of the game, making it the fastest-shipping game in the franchise’s history.
