Like most modern fighting games, Dragon Ball FighterZ, the game based on the series by Akira Toriyama developed by Arc System Works, is going to get DLC characters in the future. The full roster of additional characters has yet to be revealed, but we have now learned the names of two of them.

The latest issue of Japanese magazine V-Jump has confirmed that the Legendary Super Saiyan Broly and Bardock, Goku’s father, will soon join the roster as DLC characters. Broly will be a powerful fighter with very slow speed, while Bardock will be more balanced. A release date for the two characters has yet to be confirmed.

With the confirmation of Broly and Bardock as DLC characters, it’s more and more likely that a previous leak, stating that Android 17, Cooler, Vegito and Zamasu will come to the game, is indeed right.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is one of the best fighting games released in recent years and one of the best games based on the series.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a game that does so much right. It’s a hardcore fighting game experience, as well as a more casual button masher. It’s a competitive fighter, as well as a Dragon Ball side story. Other Dragon Ball games have done Dragon Ball style mechanics better, Xenoverse’s 3D flight feels very authentic, but Dragon Ball FighterZ feels like the best of both worlds, and is one of the very best Dragon Ball games of all time. How the fighting meta will develop is another question entirely, and whether or not tournaments like EVO will allow DBFZ to join its ranks is still up for debate, but this is easily the most exciting new fighter I’ve played in a very long time.

Dragon Ball Fighter Z is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
