According to Gematsu, Piccolo will have the ability to extend his arms when grabbing opponents and shoot energy beams faster, while Krillin's can use the "Kamehameha" and the "Afterimage" technique against his foes. His "Destructo Disks" is unblockable and players can control its trajectory.

Aside from the new characters, Bandai Namco and Arc System Works revealed that players could control and fight the chibi versions in the game's online mode similar to "Guilty Gear Xrd" series.

Nintendo Switch version soon

Game producer Tomoko Hiroki stated that a Nintendo Switch version of "Dragon Ball FighterZ" could happen if the fans buy and enjoy "Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2" on the new console.

"In terms of Switch version, we're currently working on Xenoverse 2 for the Switch," Hiroki said. "So we want players first to go there, and when we talk about FighterZ."

Hiroki's statement confirms that the game will go to Nintendo's new console if the gaming fans buy "Xenoverse 2," hoping that sales will increase for further demand.

However, many gaming fans will have an issue about it.

First, both titles are completely different games as the "FighterZ" incorporates the traditional 2D fighting game, while "Xenoverse" combines combat gameplay with MMO elements and 3D exploration. Since both "Dragon Ball" titles are different, "FighterZ" might offer something more interesting that trumps the "Xenoverse" games.

The second reason is that most players have already played the "Xenoverse" games on other platforms for nearly a year by the time it launches in the Nintendo Switch. Many gamers have already played a version of the "Xenoverse" games in the console or PC, and will not bother playing it on a new platform just to convince Bandai Namco to bring a whole new experience.

Bandai Namco Entertainment announced that the closed beta for the game will launch on July 26 and will feature nine playable characters. The game will launch in 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
