While we did get those leaks about these three last week due to a Japanese magazine, we are now getting an official release courtesy of BANDAI NAMCO. Gotenks, Kid Buu, and Gohan now join the fray in Dragon Ball FighterZ which is due out in 2018.
Below I have included the official Press Release, Gotenks Trailer, and Screenshots that were just released today.
Two new fighters have been added to the official DRAGON BALL FighterZ character roster with Gotenks, Kid Buu, and Gohan (Adult) joining the fray.
Gotenks is the result of Trunks and Goten’s successful use of the Fusion Dance method to create one fused character of greater power and skill. Gotenks is the first Fusion Dance character to be seen in Dragon Ball. He sports a blue and yellow Metamoran vest, a piece of clothing which all Fusion Dance characters wear. Gotenks is ready to take on all challengers in DRAGON BALL FighterZ.
Kid Buu, unpredictable in his thoughts and unremorseful for his actions, will certainly be a fierce fighter to contend with in DRAGON BALL FighterZ. Possessing numerous powerful attacks, Kid Buu can be one of the most dangerous characters to come across during battle or a powerful ally on your team.
Gohan (Adult) is the first hybrid character to appear in the Dragon Ball series, combining Earthling and Saiyan traits in one character. Gohan doesn’t possess the passion that Goku has for fighting, instead choosing to only engage in battle to defend Earth and the lives of his loved ones.
DRAGON BALL FighterZ is slated for a January 26, 2018 launch in the Americas for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PCs via STEAM.
