While Bandai Namco and Arc System Works recently unveiled Future Trunks at Evo and also announced Piccolo and Krillin in a recent edition of Weekly Shonen Jump, it appears we now know the identity of another Z Warrior joining the cast of Dragon Ball FighterZ, due to a leak from their English voice actor.

Chuck Huber, known for being the English voice of Android 17, was asked during a recent convention appearance at Florida Supercon if he’d recorded his lines for the android’s grand return to the series in Dragon Ball Super‘s currently-ongoing “Universe Survival Arc.” According to Enrique Bermudez on Twitter, Huber provided a quite the interesting response, saying:

“I haven’t done Dragon Ball Super, but I have done my lines for FighterZ.” After being informed that 17 isn’t among the currently announced cast members, he responded with a simple, “Whoops,” and noted that he didn’t have to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) so he’s probably fine.

We know that we’ll be seeing an “enhanced” version of the title later this month at Gamescom in Germany, which should contain Future Trunks, Piccolo, Krillin and now potentially Android 17 as the rumored 10th character. If these Tweets are true, it also confirms that the game will be receiving an English dub by Funimation — which isn’t surprising given that it is a Dragon Ball game — but is nonetheless reassuring after Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- and BlazBlue Central Fiction didn’t receive an English dub. Fingers crossed that Androids 16 and 18 will be joining 17 on the battlefield.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is currently scheduled for an early 2018 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam.
