If it's like before (2 characters a piece), who'd be paired with Jiren, considering that he's on the opponent side of the character selection screen and the theme is ToP? I think they're already aware too many Goku's is not a good thing

To be honest, with how popular Ultra Instinct Goku is, I don't think a lot of people would care if he was added into the game even if he was another Goku. Him and Jiren w/ potentially a stage would get a lot of hype.

I would rather have a GT or Kid Goku to spice things up for him, but I'm pretty sure they're both on the bottom of the list for characters that will be included.

Bandai Namco tweeted that “the warrior from Universe 11 will join the fight” and that, of course, should be none other than Jiren.

Jiren and UI Goku seems like a given.

UI Goku would be the most likely pairing, followed closely by Kefla. The latter would go down waaaaaay better than the former since they've worn out their welcome with Gokus but we'll see. They like their big iconic matchups and UI vs Jiren was the defining matchup of that arc, with dramatic intro and finish potential for both rounds of the fight.

This isn't surprising at all, Jiren was the one character I'd have absolutely bet money on for season 2, same with Bardock and Broly for season 1. They were clearly setting up for ToP stuff with the trophy stage, the music pack, even little things like some of the in-game titles and arcade mode team names as far back as when the game launched.

I rather just have a new story mode campaign that uses the Dlc characters and those that weren't used in the original 3 base campaigns.

It's a damn good bet the new character is gonna be Jiren. But if I had my wish it'd be Toppo!

I sure hope that down the line Toppo and Dyspo will become playable. I'd like to have a 3-member team of Pride Troopers.

Id love this, Toppo, I feel, could have the rest as assists and he can sacrifice using them to turn into his god form for more damage and power.

Dyspo, I feel, should be the Chipp Zanuff of this game

it will be jiren .. it will not be what I would like but it seems obvious.
I will risk it and say that kefla although sincerly I would not mind that it was Goku UI since it showed movements that would be great to see in the game

They could make Jiren play similarly to Ginyu, have Toppo and Dypso as "assists" assigned to the ki blast button.

I wouldn't want a redux of Ginyu for the Pride Troopers. Jiren, Toppo and Dyspo have enough material to potentially stand on their own, but none of the other Pride Troopers are in any way as memorable as the Ginyu Force. Plus, that would be OOC for Jiren.

I will bet that they will have Shin and normal Zamasu as DLC since their character models can easily be used.

i predict jiren and kefla. there's just too many goku's for them to put UI in. It would be great if Gokus or Vegetas would count as just one character, so when you click on them, you can select which form you wanna use.

Honestly this Game already has to Many Goku's IMO, not even counting his Evil Look alike Black or Vegitto. But if they had to do 1 more Goku then UI should be the last since that would cover mostly all the important Goku power-up ages.

For the Universe 11 member joining it will likely be Jiren, but I hope one day to see Toppo in this gain as well, heck they should give him a power-up ablity to go GoD Form as well as one of his super moves!

I am Greatly Hoping to one day see Kale, Caulifla or at least them Fused as Kefla and Ribrianne in this game Allot!

They be the main characters that would help me stick with the game for the Longterm! 8)

I feel like Kid Goku could also be viable as a future Goku

Personally, I hope the addition of Jiren doesn't preclude Top from getting in
