In conjunction with today’s May 2019 issue of Shueisha’s V-Jump magazine in Japan, Bandai Namco has announced the Dragon Ball GT child version of Son Goku is coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ as paid downloadable content:
Goku can use Nyoi-Bō to allow for a long reach, while the Kamehameha can launch Goku toward the opponent (and can even change directions doing so). Goku also comes equipped with the Super Kamehameha, which will see him transform into a Super Saiyan, or a Super Saiyan 3 when the player has two or fewer team members remaining. Goku’s ultimate attack is the Super Ultra Genki-Dama, which fires slowly but leaves the player invulnerable to attack and able to begin moving before it hits the opponent.
The magazine teases another ultimate attack available to the Dragon Ball GT version of Goku, noting that more information will be revealed in the next issue. No release date for the character has been stated.
The 3-on-3, “2.5D” fighting game is developed by Arc System Works and is currently available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC (via Steam), and Nintendo Switch. 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.
The game’s first (optional) $34.99 “FighterZ Pass” covers eight total additional playable characters (also available individually at $5 each); these include Broli, Bardock, Vegetto, Merged Zamasu, (non-Super Saiyan, “black hair”) Son Goku, and (non-Super Saiyan, “black hair”) Vegeta, Coola, and No. 17.
The game’s recently-revealed “FighterZ Pass 2” is set to include Jiren and Videl (already available), the recent theatrical versions of Broli and Gogeta coming at a later point in time, and now the Dragon Ball GT version of Son Goku. One additional character has yet to be formally unveiled for this additional pass. The second pass is available for $24.99; characters are also available individually at $5 each as they were with the first pass.
Dragon Ball FighterZ was originally released 26 January 2018 in North America and Europe, and 01 February 2018 in Japan, with the Switch release coming later in September. 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.
