The more Saiyans the merrier, right? V-Jump magazine revealed that Bardock and Broly are the first downloadable characters for Arc System Works’ DragonBall FighterZ.
For those unaware, Broly is a legendary Super Saiyan in the series. Though non-canon, the character appeared in many Dragon Ball movies, and shares a strong hatred toward the series main protagonist, Goku. Broly is larger than most of the characters in the current cast, and showcases his Super Special Attack called the “Gigantic Meteor”–according to gematsu.
The other character, Bardock, is Goku’s father who fought off against Goku’s later nemesis Frieza before meeting his end. Bardock attains his Super Saiyan form by using his Super Special Attack called “Revenger Assault” –according to gematsu.
V-Jump hasn’t announced a price or date for these characters, but a “FighterZ Pass” will release sometime soon–unlocking eight additional characters and other features for $34.99–according to the Bandai Namco Twitter account.
Based on these leaks, it appears Bandai Namco are targeting Dragon Ball’s popular characters. I’d argue Broly is a hit or miss with fans, but it seems that’s not the case. Whether they add characters from other films, Dragon Ball Super, or Dragon Ball GT–is yet to be seen.
