Recently, Bandai Namco Entertainment held a stream in Japan for the fast-approaching Dragon Ball FighterZ. Specifically showcasing many of the newer characters who didn’t make the cut for the open beta, as well as the seldom-seen Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan versions of Goku and Vegeta.
These matches feature Gotenks, Goku Black, and Hit facing Captain Ginyu, Yamcha, and SSGSS Goku, as well as the trio of SGSS Vegeta, Tien, and Trunks battling against Gotenks, Hit, and Yamcha. We also get a glimpse of the updated character select screen, revealing the Super Saiyan Blues will be taking their place on opposite ends of the second row of characters, next to Trunks and Android 16, respectively, with the slot underneath Beerus reserved for the recently announced Android 21. The stage select screen is also briefly displayed, revealing 13 historic Dragon Ball battlegrounds to choose from, as well as extra room for perhaps some DLC arenas or hidden surprises?
We’ve also gotten some more information on the upcoming Announcer Voice DLC that was delayed for Ultimate Edition owners, as replays during the open beta have revealed that the World Tournament Announcer, who makes several appearances throughout Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z and GT, will be available to provide commentary on matches, bringing his characteristic hype and eccentricities to matches in a similar to Persona 4 Arena‘s various Navigators. He will be made available for download by Sunday, April 15th.
