They look pretty freaking cool! I love how Goku almost completely resembles that early Z /23rd Budokai art style.. helps this version of him stand out THAT much more.. Cant wait to see the triple Goku and Triple Veggie combo reels.
It's not too late. One day, it will be.

The only thing that would make Base Goku and Vegeta worth it is if they were voiced by Peter Kelamis and Brian Drummond. :mrgreen:

They look awesome to me. Looking forward to them. Wonder how many dramatic finishes there will be? There are a lot of possibilities.

Goku x Nappa
Goku x Vegeta
Vegeta x Nappa
Goku x Frieza
Goku x Ginyu
Frieza x Vegeta

That's not even counting what-if finishes.

No, he means other than yet another Goku and Vegeta.

Whatever. In two months, he comes.

The Edgelord.

The Elder Tyrant.

The Purple Mayhem.

The Ruler of Worlds.

The Avenger of a younger sibling's Honor.

The One who will Always. Be. Cooler.

I'm really looking forward to these characters.

I love that they created new models from them, unlike the Blue forms, and the models look great.

I think Base Goku was a great choice because there was so much left to do with him, but I don't know if Base Vegeta was the right call. I think Majin Vegeta would have been a better pick. But regardless I'm really looking forward to playing as these old school characters (especially after the super modern characters in the last pack).

But he said, they can't give us new characters, right after they gave us 4 brand new, and before they will give us another 2 brand new ones. So yeah, whatever, they can give us new characters.

Or maybe I'm just way too satisfied with the 6 new + 2 clones, after all the 6 (or less) character DLCs of other games, and multiple Capcom updates with palette swapped Akuma & Ryu.

As much I want to deride the idea of there being THREE different versions of Goku and Vegeta in the game, the versatility of the characters (in the show), with regards to their abilities and techniques, kinda allows there to be just enough differentiation in their specific capabilities in combat to justify this decisions of having Goku and Vegeta in their base forms separately.

And FighterZ have thrived in making the move-sets of all the character feel so distinct from one another. So the jury is still out for me, with regards to whether the inclusion of those two characters is completely worthwhile.

It seems Base Goku's Kaioken super will gain strenght as he looses team members.
-1 fighter is Kaioken x3, and -2 is Kaioken x20. Now that's an interesting mechanic that no one else has in the game.

The "continuous button presses" makes me question if the Kaio-Ken is even an install.

It sounds like Yamcha's Spirit Ball to me.
Or Dudley's super from SF3. (forget the name)

I really was hoping for an install.

Now I just want to see how energy for the Genki-Dama has to be gathered.

I would've preferred any other 2 as we already have Goku and Vegeta but there'll probably be more beyond the season pass like what's going on with XV2 so hopefully they make up for it.

In all honesty, I prefer the base saiyans to the much lazier Blue forms, at least these have unique models and appear to have almost an entirely new moveset, plus they're from arguably the best fight in DBZ.

Cooler I'm much more worried about, 17 should sport a few good moves, but Cooler is really just consisting of slightly flashier Freeza moves, it honestly would have been a better choice to pick Janemba.

The other 6 DLC characters, which are not Goku and Vegeta.

Now we can finally have team Vegeta to counter team Goku. The only question is will the team Goku users switch Hot Topic out for original???

I wonder if they will give Nappa a what if against base Vegeta.

Looks like there's a lot of people complaining on YouTube and gaming sites about the inclusion of yet another Goku and Vegeta.

I don't know what they were thinking by doing that. This is why you shouldn't buy the Season Pass until you know what you're getting.
