Just watched the teasers. So let me get this straight - every Saiyan in FighterZ begins their fight with a transformation of some kind (including Adult Gohan, if you're on the side of believing his "unlocked potential" is a transformation)... until now.
Bardock's intro is a proper reference to his source material. A callback to the lives that were lost before he dons the headband. Short, sweet and drenched
Broly's intro is... "hey guys, comin at ya with some Dragon Ball Fighter Zee footage of my man Brawly yeeeeeuh
" - really, though? He just... skates in, already in big boy mode? Broly arguably, visually
, has one of the most iconic transformations of the franchise - and he just pops in here like he's late for class. I can practically see the slice of bread hanging from his mouth. It's the first legitimately disappointing intro I've seen.
Now don't get me wrong, by my non-sensical logic of "Saiyans should transform in their intros," this means that I should want Bardock to transform, right? No.
If Bardock was just another Super Saiyan thrown into the game, I would be in streets rioting*
. If his Super Saiyan form were anything BUT a Meteor Attack, I would be miffed at it's inclusion... but it's a suitable, bonus reference as-is.
*quietly mumbling to myself and eating chips in the corner
As for hopes of how they each play: I expect Broly to be a giant, rush-down, aggressive
mother-buster - akin to how Juggernaut felt, for all you MvC fans out there. Bardock should feel like a dirty Goku
. Maybe give him a command grab, that would be siiiiick
