As he has done several times in the past, Maximilian was flown out to the offices of Namco Bandai Entertainment America to get some pre-release footage and playtime with the next Dragon Ball FigherZ DLC character, Cooler. In addition to being able to enjoy the increased range of tail attacks — like his younger brother Frieza and Android 21 — Cooler also boasts a pair of unique command normals in 6H, a low-hitting stomp, and a 3H lunging strike that will go through Ki Blasts and projectiles. Though his 2L is not a low, the eldest son of the Cold family still has a trio of them with his 2M, 6H and his Death Shaker special, that hits fullscreen. Death Breaker is a Dragon Punch-style knee strike, with the medium version having complete Body invincibility, giving him a meterless reversal option that can go through certain Supers, and also serves as his Assist.

Moving on to his Super Special Moves, Death Crasher is a rushing attack with some invincibility after the start, but will force a side switch on hit — which is a unique theme with many of his attacks. The Death Drop does low damage, but is perfect for setting up Ultimate Z-Changes. Finally, his Level 3, Atomic Supernova, is unique in that it is a counter on the ground, but a command grab in the air, though it will whiff on crouching foes if Tiger Kneed. You can see the full video below — along with a second breakdown from Max and Hellpockets, and some casual matches with Max taking him for a spin alongside Hit and Goku Black, below.
