On top of the 24 characters already available in Dragon Ball FighterZ, Bandai Namco is introducing an additional eight fighters to the roster post-launch as DLC. While the publisher has been quiet about who these characters will be, we’ve now gotten a look at the first two coming to the Dragon Ball fighting game, courtesy of Japanese magazine V-Jump (via Gematsu).
The first two DLC characters on the way to Dragon Ball FighterZ are the Legendary Super Saiyan Broly and Goku’s father, Bardock. The former was one of the 15 DLC characters we wanted to see added to the game. According to Gematsu, Broly’s special is Gigantic Meteor–an enormous energy ball that uses three Ki gauges. Bardock’s special attack is called Revenger Assault; when activated, the warrior transforms into a Super Saiyan and delivers a rush attack.
Broly and Bardock are included in Dragon Ball FighterZ’s season pass, along with the other six yet-to-be-revealed DLC characters coming to the fighting game. Bandai Namco hasn’t announced individual pricing for the two fighters, but the season pass costs $35 USD / £29 / $52.95 AU.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Critic Peter Brown awarded the title a 9/10 in GameSpot’s Dragon Ball FighterZ review and said, “Even if you think Dragon Ball is old hat, and even if you’re intimidated by fighting games, there’s a good chance you’ll be drawn into the explosive action and personalities that expertly evoke the anime’s infectious spirit.”
