All of you prospective Ginyu Force members, stand at attention, for your Captain has arrived in Dragon Ball FighterZ! IKevinX tackles the recently-revealed Captain Ginyu in his latest anime and manga reference video — appropriately set to their Japanese theme, because Ginyu Force rules! Like any good leader with a loyal squadron, Ginyu will never enter battles alone, (despite already having two teammates) as the entire Force: Guldo, Recoome, Burter, and Jeice will all be by his side to create, as the developers describe,” the feeling of playing five characters at once.”

From their iconic introductory pose when arriving on Planet Namek, to Ginyu’s newest pose he created to greet Frieza following his glorious return (in Tagoma’s body), to Dragon Ball Super, every bit of charm and hilarious flamboyance of the five most elite warriors of the Frieza Force appears to be lovingly preserved.

Of course, this courtesy is further extended to his subordinates — who, based off what we’ve seen, will make up a large portion of the Captain’s moveset: each busting out their signature attacks such as the Recoome Eraser Gun, Jeice’s Crusher Ball, Guldo’s Time Stop, Burter’s Blue Hurricane, as well as the Purple Spiral Flash. These are all on display, along with Ginyu’s signature Milky Cannon and Body Change serving as his Supers.

IKevinX also hopes to have a Tien video out soon. You can catch the video, and begin the Dance of Joy, below.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will be released in North America and Europe on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam PC on January 26th, 2018, with a Japanese release on the same platforms following on February 1st.
