Dragon Ball FighterZ Adds Super Saiyan Blue Goku, Vegeta, and Android 18

Two Super new additions are coming to the Arc System Works fighter.

News by Mike Williams, .

In the latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump (scan via ShonenGames), Bandai Namco Entertainment revealed more fighters for the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ. Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta are the first two fighters from the current incarnations of the Dragon Ball franchise, Dragon Ball Z: Ressurection F and Dragon Ball Super. Both characters sport upgraded versions of their signature final attacks: 10x God Kamehameha for Goku and Final Flash Attack for Vegeta.

Over in V-Jump, Bandai Namco announced Android 16 and Android 18 would be joining the fight. Android 18 will have a combination attack that will allow her to summon Android 17, while Android 18 can use Hell's Flash.

Weekly Jump also revealed that Dragon Ball FighterZ will have a Story Mode, involving a revived Android 16, "high-end animation", and a scenario where the "super warriors fall one by one", according to a translation of the scans by Gematsu.

Super Saiyan Blue Goku, Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta, Android 16, and Android 18 join the existing roster of Goku, Vegeta, Teenage Gohan, Cell, Frieza, Majin Buu, Trunks, Krillin, and Piccolo.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in early 2018. There will be a closed beta in September, with registration opening on August 22.

    Wait they are making the SSGSS aka Blue powered up forms separate characters for both Goku and Vegeta?

    That absolutely sucks as bad as Dr. Mario getting a roster spot in a Smash Bros game.

    @Wellman2nd It's not the worst thing in the world (considering the source material) but it is a little disappointing to see them announced so soon.

    Android 18 should have a skin that swaps her with Android 17.

    It doesn't look like transformations are a mechanic, but Arc System Works does well with making each character feel unique in their games, so it's safe to assume the different versions of Goku and Vegeta will play differently enough from each other.

    With that said, I'm looking forward to trying out Android 16. Once they announce Tenshinhan, I'll be set. Also, the addition of SS Blue characters means Super is up for grabs, so I expect Beerus to also be in the roster.

    Quite excited for this one!

    I wonder if this means we'd be getting other fighters from Super?

    Sadly, it's probably to late to include Kale and Caulifla, but Beerus, Frost, Hit and Autta Magetta might be viable.
