The new fighters

Japanese magazine "Shonen Jump" revealed new playable characters for "Dragon Ball FIghterZ." The playable fighters released are Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta. It is unclear at the moment if these characters are going to be used as transformations or entirely separate fighters.

Android 16 and Android 18 were revealed as two more playable characters.


Android 18 has the ability to summon Android 17 for a special attack, but it is unknown whether or not Android 17 will be a playable character. Android 16 will be playing a prominent role in the game's story-mode.

The story-mode campaign feature high-end animation and a brand new storyline, one that is intriguing to fans: Android 16 comes back to battle Goku and his friends.

"Shonen Jump" also confirmed that the online party matches will allow up to six plays for three-on-three matches.
