In conjunction with this weekend’s Dragon Ball FighterZ National Championships session, as well as today’s release of the February 2021 issue of V-Jump, Bandai Namco formally unveiled Super Baby 2 and Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta as forthcoming paid downloadable content characters for Dragon Ball FighterZ:

Super Baby 2, a transformed version of the Baby-infested Vegeta from the Dragon Ball GT television series, has made various appearances in video games throughout the years, including two years ago as a DLC addition to Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2. The character will make his way to FighterZ next month on 15 January 2021. Curiously, the character’s name is written with the 超 (chō) kanji in the trailer, where in all previous appearances (including the respective V-Jump announcement) the name has been written in katakana as スーパー (sūpā).

Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta, likewise also from the Dragon Ball GT television series, will make his way to the game “soon”.

The 3-on-3, “2.5D” fighting game is developed by Arc System Works and is currently available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via Steam). A first “FighterZ Pass” with eight additional playable characters is available for $29.99, with a “FighterZ Pass 2” available for $24.99 adding another six. In addition to these latest two character announcements, Kafla, Son Goku (Ultra Instinct), and the Turtle Hermit comprise the the five additional characters from “FighterZ Pass 3”. Said additional paid characters are also all available piecemeal at $4.99 each.

Dragon Ball FighterZ was originally released 26 January 2018 in North America and Europe, and 01 February 2018 in Japan, across the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. 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. The game also shipped on the Nintendo Switch back in September 2018.
