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

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

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.
