Bandai Namco has just dropped a new Dragon Ball FighterZ trailer; alongside showcasing DLC character Bardock, it also reveals the date of when we’ll be getting both Bardock and Broly: March 28! Alongside Bardock and Broly, Bandai Namco will also be releasing a Commentator Voice Pack, that will allow Chichi, Videl, and Android 18 to commentate fights.

Going back to the trailer: aside from showing some of Bardock’s moves, we also get glimpse of his Super Saiyan form during his Meteor Attack. This was originally shown in a side story called Episode of Bardock which saw him sent back in time due to the destruction of Planet Vegeta. Here, ascending to Super Saiyan while fighting one of Frieza’s ancestors caused said ancestor of Frieza pass on the legend of the Super Saiyan to his descendants.

What’s interesting about this is that this means that both characters in this batch of DLC are related to the Super Saiyan legend — Broly being the “Legendary Super Saiyan”, and Bardock being the one who may have started it (at least when it comes to Frieza’s family!).

Check out the trailer below:
