The latest updates for "Dragon Ball FighterZ" reveal four new Playable Characters added to the growing roster of the game. Scans of the new issue of V-Jump Magazine revealed that "Majin Buu saga" characters Adult Son Gohan, Gotenks, and Kid Buu will join the fight, complete with their own unique fighting styles and techniques.

The game will also have a traditional Arcade Mode and an in-game shop for video game fans to spend their hard-earned Zeni to buy new items for their characters.

New FighterZ

According to the V-Jump Magazine, Adult Gohan, Gotenks, and Kid Buu will join "Dragon Ball FighterZ" bringing the total number of playable characters to 21, with an additional eight characters in the game's post-launch plans.


Kid Buu is the original and most powerful form of Majin Buu. He was created by the evil wizard Bibidi to wreak havoc across the universe. Unlike the fat Majin Buu or Super Buu, Kid Buu is completely unpredictable and will kill without second thoughts regardless of moral alignment. His power was so terrifying that the combined might of the four Supreme Kais could not defeat him.

The latter utilizes a no-holds-barred fighting style as he likes to decimate his opponents. Kid Buu can use "Planet Burst" as his finisher and he can destroy an entire planet with ease.

Gotenks is the fusion form of Son Goten and Trunks. Son Goku and Piccolo taught them the "Fusion Dance" in order to defeat Majin Buu.

The powerful Saiyan can transform into Super Saiyan 3 form. He traps his opponent using the "Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball" attack and spikes them to ground with an assist from Piccolo.

Gotenks second technique is the "Super Ghost Kamikaze," wherein he can summon ghost versions of himself and explodes to give his opponents massive damage.

Finally, Adult Gohan will have a different fighting style than his teenaged self.


He can increase his ki and unlock his true potential transforming into his "Mystic Gohan" form. This form can rival Super Saiyan 3 Goku in terms of raw power. He can use "Ultimate Kamehameha" as a finishing move.

The V-Jump Magazin scans also teased that Universe 7's God of Destruction Beerus will likely be a potential playable character on the roster.

Arcade Mode added

Bandai Namco Entertainment will add a traditional Arcade Mode for "Dragon Ball FighterZ's" gameplay features. While the Japanese publisher did not divulge more details about it, video game fans are happy to hear that they can explore more game modes aside from the story campaign.

There is also an in-game shop where players can spend their Zeni to buy items related to the game. The plot of "FighterZ" will feature the Z warriors and villains working together to stop Android 21 from unleashing a clone army and conquering the universe.

The game will launch on Jan. 28, 2018 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
