In the latest issue of V-Jump, Bandai Namco have revealed that old school Z-Fighters Piccolo and Krillin are the next characters to join the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster. According to the magazine, Krillin’s Supers will be Scattering Bullet and Destructo Disc, while Piccolo will have Light Grenade and Special Beam Cannon.

Krillin’s Destructo Disc will be similar to Freeza’s Death Saucer, being an unblockable projectile which the opponent must dodge. The article also briefly discusses DBFZ’s online system, which has chibi versions of the game’s cast wandering round a lobby, similar to how Guilty Gear Xrd handles matches.

UPDATE: A scan translation from GREATFERNMAN on Twitter has shed more like on Krillin and Piccolo’s Supers. Special Beam Cannon is Piccolo’s level 1 Super, with players being able to charge it the beam for extra damage. This makes Light Grenade his level 3, with it being best used as a combo finisher.

Krillin’s Destructo Disc is his level 1 Super, with Scattering Bullet being his level 3. Krillin does have the use of a Kamehameha as his standard command projectile, and he makes up for his lack of range with his Afterimage Technique. This move has him leaving behind an afterimage of himself mid-combo, forcing opponents to guess which Krillin is the real one.

Based on these reveals and the recent announcement that the DBFZ beta will feature nine playable fighters, one can hazard a guess that the roster will be:

  • Goku
  • Gohan
  • Vegeta
  • Future Trunks
  • Piccolo
  • Krillin
  • Freeza
  • Cell
  • Majin Buu

Sign ups for the DBFZ closed beta will open on July 26th, with the beta being available on PS4 and Xbox One.
