It's one of the most successful fighting games, if not the most successful. So, IMHO, the game have very big chance for 2nd season pass or sequel.

I hope Merged Zamasu has the portals from the manga. I'd even be happy with the katchin blocks.

I'm a little disappointed the design isn't manga muscle + anime halo.

I would love the beams from the anime, the katchin blocks, paralysis and counter style from the manga. I would save the portals for Janemba just in case they decide to make him.

We should only get anime Zamasu unfortunately.

Dear god no, Zamasu is not a character who should have that big buff muscle design... It just looks awkward and wrong, like as if Zamasu photoshopped his head on someone's body :[

I think it would have gotten cool if it had been the result of a Kaiouken - him calling it a Kaioushinken - that he used in the battle. First scrawny, then ripped.

It makes sense in the manga, because it goes with the more muscular character designs like DBZ anime, and unlike Super anime.
The same reason why SSBs are buff in FighterZ, they do the old muscular style, while Super anime has both SSBs and SSJs as skinnier.

I wasn't arguing reasoning, I was criticizing design

Absolutely. Fighting games with solid fundamentals that encourage learning and growth are played for many, many years. It's fun to play, it's fun to win, it's fun to lose, it's fun to experiment, it's fun to chill out with, and it's fun to share with people.
It just need some balance changes.

Other than that it is a solid fighting game.

They may want to take their time with how they announce these characters so he could be saved for May's issue with a release following soon after.

I'm so glad that Fused Zamasu is coming to the game. I might actually buy it now. And it looks like he has all his unique techniques from the anime: the Blades of Judgement, the Lightning of Absolution and the Holy Wrath.

Why do some people fervently desire manga Fused Zamasu? He has no unique technique whatsoever, he just throws random Katchin blocks and opens portals like Janemba. He's not bad, but he's boring and unoriginal. It also seems like that Fused Zamasu will have a unique mechanic in the game since he will be able to enter in a state that 'hovers' above the ground, something that manga Fused Zamasu wouldn't be able to do because he spent most of the time fighting on the ground.
At long last, on this most glorious day, Project Zero Mortals will culminate with the eradication of all remaining life on this planet! And then the great utopia will rise from the ashes!

I don't understand, you're denying your own argument in your answer. "Throwing random Katchin blocks" who ever used that in a fight? From all the the Zamasu interpretations that's the most Godly thing he has, since only Kaioshin shown this ability.
Likewise if only Janemba used portals, doesn't that make it incredibly rare?

How isn't that more unique than what he uses in the anime? Holy Wrath is literally every big ball energy starting from the fingers. The others while less common than the classic beam attacks we seen on Dragon Ball aren't that special, the only unique gimmick is the halo thingy and how he shoots most of his attacks from it.
Oh and his grab with the red aura which is pretty cool and I don't remember something similar ever appearing, unfortunately that doesn't seem to be in the game from the scans.

I'm not even criticizing his anime move set, it's very varied compared to what we usually get. I'm certainly not disappointed with what were getting. Ideally for me we would get a fusion of both his anime and manga attacks.
If you prefer the anime attacks that's fine but don't put down what you don't like with rethoric.

Lastly if you're just buying the game for one character, I advice against it. Unless you're on the fence because you only have 2 or 3 characters you want to play and Merged Zamasu will satisfy your minimum requirement, otherwise you will just be throwing money away. This all on my assumption that what the game offers doesn't appeal enough to you.

Merged Zamasu looks Goldy! Exactly how he should be! :clap:
I want him to be a zoner who looks down on everyone. The "float"state he seems to have is already a step in the right direction.

I'm glad they are using the DBS anime as main source, because the characters movesets in the manga are boring most of the time. The only cool thing Merged Zamasu did in the manga was the use of portals which are from Janemba...

Hopefully the other one is Vegetto Blue and according to the datamine, seems like FT Trunks Genki Sword may be coming as a Dramatic Finish.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

I swear every time someone brings up the manga moveset, they compare the portals to Janemba. It's like two characters can't use the same technique in this game, even though about a third of the cast has some type of Kamehameha.

At no point did Janemba use his portals like this. Can you honestly say you don't want to see this animated? I would have loved if this was his level 3 instead of the lightning. No other DBZ character has an attack like this.

Image

Even disregarding unbreakable Katchin blocks used as projectiles and portals, Merged Zamasu made some extensive use of telekinesis in the manga that we didn't really get to see in the anime, even though it's one the most "Kai" techniques. If he doesn't have SOME move that shows or makes use of that in FighterZ, I'm going to be very disappointed.

I'm still waiting for an SS4 to show up, not counting mods.

His character probably isn't ready to be shown in advertising yet.

That's great! Thank god it's anime Merged Zamasu, his techniques are pretty cool in there, way better than throwing katchins or spamming portals that shows Toyotaro's lack of creativity.

Seems more and more likely which irks me given the rumors that they'll put another version of Goku and Vegeta, a grand total of three for each of them.

Why is everyone against the Katchin as a projectile move? That was like the best random attack in Budokai for Supreme Kai where instead of cool beam attacks, he just chucks giant blocks and swords (even Katchin pans wtf) at the enemy. It'd have a lot of variety in use as the light and medium version can be used to change trajectory (like 21) and his EX can be a Katchin barrage throwing multiple across the screen kind of like Freezas 236H attack. Better than him just having a Black Kamehameha or some other beam attack everyone has.

I'm sure they'll mainly use the manga for his normal attack animations as he was a lot more hands on in it compared to the anime, but he had some cool attacks that when combining the manga and anime can have one of the best movesets in the game.
