Dragon Ball FighterZ Reveals Bardock and Broly as DLC Characters

I'm just sayin' that we need more Saiyans.

Bandai Namco Entertainment has revealed the first characters coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ via downloadable content. If you were hoping for a non-Saiyan character for the roster, keep hoping, because Bardock and Broly are incoming. The announcement comes with a pair of teaser trailers for each character.

Bardock is the father on Dragon Ball Z/Super protagonist Son Goku. He died long before the events of Dragon Ball and his story was told in the television special Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku. Broly was the fabled Legendary Super Saiyan, featured as the antagonist in Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan and Dragon Ball Z: Broly - Second Coming. He's technically out-of-continuity in the main Dragon Ball universe. Neither character has a firm release date yet.

Both characters were on the list of rumored characters for the game's FighterZ Pass. For $34.99, the pass offers a total of eight additional, unannounced characters. If the rumors and speculation pans out, the rest of the FighterZ Pass will include non-Super Saiyan Goku and Vegeta, Zamasu, Vegito, Android 17, and Cooler.

Not entirely as exciting as our list of characters that should be coming to the game, huh? And if you're just digging into the game for the first time, check out our guides!
