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.
Thank you for your opinion!

If I had to choose something from the manga to get in the game. I'd be SSB Goku using Hakai on Merged Zamasu as a dramatic finish. But chances are the dramatic finishes with go to Vegetto and Trunks beating Zamasu.

I don't see the Super manga being too well-represented, since the anime came first and is more well-known. I know there is a vocal portion of the fandom that prefers the manga, but I don't see the game choosing to focus too heavily on it. There's a reason SSB Goku's level 3 was the Kaioken after all.

Mind you, if I had to pick one thing from the Super manga, it would actually be giving Blue Vegeta the Gamma Burst Flash as a lvl 3 instead of the Final Flash. Granted there's not much difference between the two, but it is at least a distinction between the two versions of Vegeta.

I'd be down for that. I mean we had Bardock have an entire what-if win against Freeza as a finisher and also Yamcha's what-if against Nappa so we know they're not against doing some crazy stuff. They could potentially do the Hakai with Goku and Zamasu, or hell, have an even more dramatic Hakai with Beerus against him.

Sorry guys, but judging from what we already have, it doesn't seems like they will take any moves from the Super manga.
I don't think other characters having the portal stuff (Janemba) and the katchin block (Shin) being the problem, as other characters has far more common moves shared between them, and it's always possible to make them work differently. (And those characters are not even in the game yet.) I think it's mostly that Super anime has the wider audience reach over the manga, and ASW went with that iteration.

Btw, I wonder if Zamasu's seperate reveal means that we will also get single character releases now instead of pairs. But I guess probably not.
i also wonder if Zamasu's disfigured form will make an appearence as one of his Super moves. Knowing from the datamining that Trunks will have the Sword of Hope dramatic finish against him, I'm pretty sure he will appear at least in that cutscene.

Let me add another thought to this:
The King of Fighters XIV got released in 2016, it was always a series that was far more in the background compared to the likes of Street Fighter, Tekken, MK, etc.
KOF XIV didn't get much hype when it was released, it wasn't in EVO, and the art style looks like something that could come not long after the PS2 era.
Despite all of this, the game is still alive, people are playing it, and it just got 4 new DLC characters, and likely more will come later.
Of course there's always the development cost (and in this case licensing cost too) when it comes to video games, for example MvC:Infinite had far worse sales then they expected, and after one season of DLCs it seems like it's over.
At the same time, FighterZ is one of the most commercially succesful fighting games so far, it break some records even on Steam with the Win/PC version. Despite how FGC always had a distaste over DBZ fighters in the past, now it's the main event at EVO.
It would be a "hell freezes over" situation for Bandai to drop the support of FighterZ with new content.

Finally decided to try my hand with the rumored DLC character:

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

Around this time next month. They will most likely reveal the other DLC character too.

V-Jump is released on the 21st of every month, barring a Sunday or a holiday, in which case it is moved up to the earliest appropriate day. The July 2018 issue of V-Jump will be released Monday, May 21.

Silly question, but do UK copies of the game have "version 1.07 UK" on their title screen or "version 1.07 EU"? :wtf:

Thank you!
Now I'm a bit confused though. Are V Jump, Monthly Shonen Jump and Jump Magazine are the same or different things? Which one of them had the latest preview of Zamasu DLC? (and did the other monthly FighterZ character reveals)

The official FighterZ website finally added Fused Zamasu and his stats were incorrect as they were actually Broly's stats.

Image

His ease of use is a B! That's the hardest 'ease of use' stat in the game so far to my knowledge. I'm actually very interested in how he plays now.

Click through to the very link you quoted.

(Monthly Shonen Jump doesn't exist anymore. Weekly Shonen Jump is released each Monday in Japan, and is the one with all the big serializations like One Piece. V-Jump is released on the 21st of each month, is their promotional, multimedia-focused magazine primarily focused on video games, and also happens to be the place where the Dragon Ball Super manga is serialized.)

Well, half God, but yeah I'm glad he's gonna be hard to use. Might get me back into this game.

I wonder how they're going to do his colors, mainly his color 2.

Are they going to carry over the colors that regular Zamasu has with Black, or are they going to go completely different?

His color 2 (reference color) could be a number of things

- Supreme Kai Shin's colors from Goku Black 2
- Gowasu/Zamasu's colors
- God of Destruction Rumsshi's colors

I hope they have regular Zamasu's colors.
