It seems like big things are coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ, this coming August. Not only are two new characters coming into the game, but the Switch port is getting an open beta.

Bandai Namco Games has announced that base form Goku and base form Vegeta are coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ as DLC in early August. This shouldn’t be surprising, as back in February, data miners had found hints pointing to them being added as part of of the game’s season pass.

Both characters will feature unique moves that their other versions don’t have; base form Vegeta will have his “Galick Gun” energy blast, as well as his “Galaxy Breaker” which he used to finish off Nappa in the Saiyan Saga. Meanwhile, base Goku will be able to use his Kaio-ken, which he can power up from times 3 up to times 20 when a teammate falls. Of course, he’ll also bring his “Super Spirit Bomb”, which is stated to be the most powerful of all moves, but trades this off by being slow.

Both fighters are set to be available in early August and will be available for purchase for ¥500 in Japan, or about $4.99 in the US.

In addition to the two characters, Dragon Ball FighterZ’s Switch port will be getting an open beta in August as well. This beta will feature 3-on-3 battle locally.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is currently available for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One with the Switch port is set to arrive on September 28.
