I don't think anyone in ArcSys knows about such specific dub line
I`m joking.

I would like the other reactions, since they were animated in Super.

Raditz is trash, the only one missing in this roster is Broly.
One man`s trash is another man`s treasure.

Roshi over any of those two, any day.

I think the biggest challenge would be to give a a character a moveset with no Ki attacks whatsoever. Flying is not require for this gameplay. You jump high and kick hard? You`re good to go.

So the Original Kamehameha and the "Shocking Surprise" don't count, right?

Does Hit even have a ki attack? I'm pretty sure he hasn't show anything in the gameplay or in the scans.

They said in the last interview that they had to exclude same characters due to the game mechanics, overlapping fight styles and more, they then highlighted how they forced Ginyu in.

The first part of the sentence isn`t about Roshi, is just me saying what the biggest challenge would actually be :)

Roshi can do what everyone else in the screen does: jump high with attacks, block, dash, etc. Nothing about the gameplay actually hinders him in a basic level. That said, good catch about Hit and his moveset. He may be the one character with no projectiles.

It's fun imagining the dramatic finishes there could be. For example, SSB Vegeta or SSB Goku might have a dramatic finish where Freezer tries to blow up the Earth and is destroyed by Goku's sudden Kame Hame Ha. And there's a lot more special intros/outros we can imagine.

It would be fun to have some sort of in-game checklist of the dramatic finishes we found, with a side objective being to figure all of them out.

Yes, it's very likely.
Logically, all "special effects" applied to the character would be turned off once the fight is over for the victory pose, and the dramatic finish counts as a victory pose.
So just like Freezer wouldn't be golden for his victory pose even if you finished the battle being golden, it's most likely that he won't be golden in Goku's special victory scene.

The only time he tried to use a ki blast was against Jiren. Unlike the others instead of ki blasts, he usually uses a shockwave.
It's another thing that makes him unique and hopefully ASW will add to his moveset.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

I don't think it should be an issue since there isn't any sustained flight in the game.

But Freeza is Golden in the victory pose if you finish the match transformed. I've saw in some videos, but I can get one for you if you want. Seeing he in his Golden form in the victory pose is what made me curious about it

Some direct feed gameplay I found on twitter, shows a bit more of Black, Beerus and Hit. Also a new dramatic moment, using Ultimate Gohan's level 3 with SSj Goku causes the Family Kamehameha.

There's also footage here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4yXg8OxEXo

It contains a glimpse of some of the unique interactions mentioned in last month's magazine scan. Gohan introduces himself to Krillin with a comment about being dads, while Hit has a comment about being teamed up with Beerus in the victory screen. The former is especially interesting because it implies this is Super-era Gohan, not Buu saga. At least that means calling him 'Adult Gohan' is technically accurate at last.

Arcade mode courses are based off different training courses from the series. Level 1 is Snake Way, Level 2 is the gravity ship, Level 3 is the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, presumably it goes further. It also has themed opponent teams, which is fun since people had already started coming up with those. Goku, Vegeta and Trunks are called 'The Three Great Super Saiyans', while SSB Vegeta, Krillin and 18 are called 'Tournament of Power Participants 1'. Yes, that is the best they could come up with. Also, lol at the casual ToP reference. Remember when people were saying this would be Z only?

Actually, if they are having teams based on the ToP roster, I want there to be a team of Yamcha, Gotenks and Buu called 'Tournament of Power Rejects'.

There's even some story mode footage with full animated cutscenes. It all looks great.

Welp my brother took my PS4 with him to Uni so I won't be able to play FighterZ until the summer.... as if the wait isn't already bad. (Don't blame him I never play the PS4 it's sod's law the one time I am excited to play a game, oh well).

So I guess in order to this team attack be perfomed you need Goku, Gohan and Gotenks on your team (Just like Supersonic Warriors 2 :D )

But, Gohan turns into SSJ as 'Ultimate'? :?

Is Gohan supposed to be Ultimate all the time? Because he has the thin bang, which is incorrect when he's transformed into Ultimate. And using two transformations at the same time? Is that even possible?

That is some really weird thing. :?

You don't need those 2 on the team. I saw Gohan do the move with Goku and Hit on his team.

I think this is just an adult Gohan and in game one of his super moves is to activate the Ultimate form... It's weird cause he looks like ultimate Gohan from the start.
