Designer Akira Toriyama gave out spoilers for the much-awaited “Dragon Ball FighterZ,” confirming new characters like Android 21, Yamcha and Tien. Details on these characters are scarce as of this time. Meanwhile, game developer Bandai Namco gave some fortunate fans the privilege to try out the Closed Beta version over this weekend.

Check out the newest character, Android 21

Toriyama went live to show his designs for the upcoming new characters of the highly anticipated video game. Fans of the “Dragon Ball” franchise can have the chance to play as Android 21. This character is the latest addition to the Android characters of the story, following Android 18.

The game developer revealed that Android 21 is a female cyborg.


In addition, the recently released design unveiled that this character is a girl wearing a retro-themed dress and tights. She also looks like a geek as she is wearing glasses, yet looks sassy in her auburn hair.

Unfortunately, the game developer did not drop any further descriptions of Android 21. It remains to be seen how she will fight in the game as the company did not reveal her fighting abilities. However, the “What If” story mode comprising Android 16 revealed that this new fighter will portray a significant role, Game Rant has noted.

According to ComicBook, this Android 21 became the main adversary for the Android Saga. Later in the “Dragon Ball Z” series, she turned into a super-villain Cell.

In one of the greatest battles featured in the “Dragon Ball Z” series, Cell violently killed Android 16. As the new video game will feature the return of Android 16, fans believe that the former will most likely be linked to the comeback of the latter.
