'Dragon Ball Super' character confirmed

Goku Black, Beerus, and Hit made their debut in the "Super" series and these three have fought Son Goku and his friends on several occasions. Beerus is Universe 7's resident God of Destruction and Goku's ally in the new anime series. He is feared in the universe for his incredible power and short temper. His techniques include "God of Destruction's Judgement," when he grabs his opponents, and "Spheres of Destruction," to stop his enemies from moving around the field.

The spheres can be placed anywhere and it will explode when someone touches it.

Hit is an infamous assassin from Universe 6 and a rival of Goku during the "Universe 6 vs Universe 7 tournament" arc. He uses the "Time Skip Molotov" to stop time and strike his opponent's vitals at ultra high-speed. Hit utilizes powerful high-speed attacks, that cannot be seen by his enemies, giving him the element of surprise. His technique, "I Continue to Grow," allows him to deliver a powerful blow to his opponent when he slows down time.


Goku Black is a version of Zamasu from another dimension and the main villain of the "Future Trunks" arc. The latter used the Super Dragon Balls to grant his wish of stealing Goku's body and he then killed his family. He can transform into "Super Saiyan Rose" to increase his power and create energy blades from his hands. His technique, "Work of the Gods," allows him to create an energy scythe to deal damage and finishes his opponents using cloned versions of himself. Zamasu will be an assist character and together they can create powerful spirit balls to eliminate their enemies.

New game modes
