Ahead of the character’s release tomorrow (26 September 2019), a short promotional video for Gogeta (SSGSS) has been released showcasing some of his special moves. The character will be available individually for ¥500/$5, or as part of the game’s optional $24.99 “FighterZ Pass 2” covering six total characters.
The video concludes with a glimpse at the in-game alternate colors, player lobby character, and Z-Stamp that will accompany him for those that pay for access to the character.
Gogeta, a fusion of Son Goku and Vegeta created from the fusion dance, debuted in 1995’s twelfth theatrical Dragon Ball Z film. The character was recently “rebooted” alongside other characters in the 2018 theatrical film Dragon Ball Super: Broly; this “Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan” (“SSGSS”) version serves as the basis for FighterZ‘s inclusion, with various nods — including a special dramatic finish — to his original 1995 incarnation.
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. 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.
A first “FighterZ Pass” with eight additional playable characters is available for $29.99, with the aforementioned “FighterZ Pass 2” available for $24.99. Said additional paid characters are also all available piecemeal at $4.99 each.
