Long speculated to be coming to the game as a DLC character, thanks to some data mining (and the fact that his model is already in the game, as part of Android 18’s moveset), Android 17 has been officially confirmed to be coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ in the latest issue of V-Jump.

The issue (a scan of which you can see below) states that Android 17 is set to arrive in the game later this month, and will have special moves such as the “Barrier Explosion” where he generates a barrier around himself and does a dash attack, as well as his “End Game” which sees him go behind his opponents to land continuous attacks. His Meteor Attack on the other hand is the “Super Electric Strike”, where he builds energy around his hand, before shooting it at his opponent.

Alongside Android 17, a new stage, the “Space Arena”, will be added to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions (and likely the PC version – V-Jump doesn’t cover PC, so it wasn’t mentioned in the article). The Switch version on the other hand will receive this new stage at a later date.

In addition to this, Z Capsules featuring Halloween-themed lobby characters and stamps will be available for a limited time until late November.
