Last week, we learned that Nappa and Captain Ginyu would be joining Dragon Ball FighterZ as playable characters. Their selection was surprising, seeing as they’re villains from earlier in the series who many thought would be overlooked in favor of more recent, popular characters. Now we get to see at least one of them in action, as Bandai Namco has released a gameplay trailer for Nappa.

As previously revealed, Nappa fights with the help of the Saibamen: plant-based aliens who he can summon in battle. In the series, these are infamous for taking out some of the supporting characters, including Yamcha (leading to his famous death pose). It seems the haven’t lost their effectiveness in transition to the game — giving Nappa options he wouldn’t have fighting solo.

Dragon Ball FighterZ hits PlayStation 4, XBox One, and PC on January 26, 2018.
