Bandai Namco announced in Japanese magazine V-Jump that the first Dragon Ball FighterZ DLC characters will be Broly the legendary Super-Saiyan and Goku’s father Bardock. Check out the scans below that highlight some of their respective abilities and show off a glimpse of each character.
Like previous scans of new characters, a couple super moves and specials for each are detailed. Broly’s level 3 super is a meteoric smash type move straight out of the first Broly movie. It seems he’ll probably end up with moves similar to Android 16’s that break smaller attacks and deflect Ki blasts. Broly is a fan favorite so it’s no surprise to see him here, but he is always a welcome addition. It helps that the art style of Dragon Ball FighterZ brings these characters to life so beautifully.
Bardock is said to excel in hand to hand combat with high speed and a tackle move that can be finished with Ki blasts that can probably be used for good mixup potential. His level 3 is a fantastic easter-egg nod to Bardock’s TV special adapted from the 3 part manga that tells the story of what would happen if Bardock survived the destruction of the Saiyan home planet Vegeta. Awesome stuff and even more commitment from Arc System Works to really bring every great aspect of these characters to life in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
So far no release date has been announced for these two, but I would be willing to bet it’ll be pretty soon riding the wave of this game’s overwhelming popularity.
What are your picks for the next wave of Dragon Ball FighterZ DLC? Personally, I’m still waiting for Master Roshi and maybe Bulma with some kind of Capsule Corp mech would be amazing. Jiren and Kefla are two choices from Dragon Ball Super I would be surprised not to see at some point as well. Let us know what you think and who you’d like to see.
