With the latest Dragon Ball FighterZ update that arrived on the 16th, it didn’t take long for dataminers to roll up their sleeves and get to work uncovering any new secrets Bandai Namco Entertainment and Arc System Works may have added to the game’s code for release in the future.

That brings us to a recent discovery by Mizumi. Previously, we reported that a list of placeholders for future Lobby Avatars for characters not currently in the game may have revealed the identities of the eight DLC characters contained within the FighterZ Pass, which included the soon-to-be-released Bardock and Broly. Now, we have more evidence that a certain infamous foe from Dragon Ball Super could possibly be the next to arrive.

Though a model for Future Trunks’ Sword of Hope has existed in the game since launch, the latest patch has added a myriad of new textures and effects for the time-traveling Saiyan warrior, including a “Body Aura,” as well as pair of new textures — one blue and one purple, which could be for Merged Zamasu’s Violent Fierce God Slicer attack, implying that Future Trunks will be able to trigger a new Dramatic Finish when he defeats Fused Zamasu on the West City stage. You can see the full video below, as well as the scene of Fused Zamasu’s defeat in the anime for the sake of comparison. It will be interesting to see if Wednesday’s Bardock and Broly patch adds any additional files that could further point to this pair’s potential arrival in the future.

If Bandai Namco stick to a pattern of releasing fighters in pairs, the rumors would suggest that SSGSS Vegito would be arriving alongside Zamasu. So, what do you think of Fused Zamasu and SSGSS Vegito likely joining the roster of Dragon Ball FighterZ in the near future? Let us know in the comments below.
