‘Dragon Ball FighterZ’ Adds Android 16 for ‘What-if’ Story Mode; Super Saiyan Blue Debut
Bandai-Namco Entertainment's newest Dragon Ball title, "Dragon Ball FighterZ," marks the video game introduction of Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Vegeta. "Dragon Ball FighterZ" will also have a different story mode, where Android 16 plays a major role.
According to the "V-Jump" magazine scans shared by Gematsu, Super Saiyan Blue Goku will have "10x God Kamehameha" as part of his arsenal, while Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta can punish enemies with his "Final Flash Attack." Aside from the two main Saiyans, "Dragon Ball FighterZ" will also have Android 18, packed with her "Accel Dance" technique, wherein partner Android 17 appears for the combination attack.
Roster-wise, it has not been specified if the Super Saiyan Blue versions of Goku and Vegeta would be just palette swaps or completely different characters from the original Goku and Vegeta. Other available characters include Freiza, Majin Boo, Cell and Gohan, among others. Bandai-Namco may add additional playable characters as the final game nears its release date.
"Dragon Ball FighterZ" will have several story modes, along the previously mentioned "What -if" mode. This mode pits the revived Android 16 against most of the franchise's roster of heroes, including Piccolo, Krillin, and Trunks, among others. Additionally, Android 16 packs "Hell's Flash" to end battles in his favor.
"Dragon Ball FighterZ" also has something for fans of online play. As reported by Game Rant, "Dragon Ball FighterZ" allows up to six players to compete on three-on-three online matches, with real-time player switching.
