Dragon Ball FighterZ adds four new characters and a story mode. Android 16 will also be a major part of the game's story campaign which serves as a "what if" reimagining of the anime.

Bandai-Namco Entertainment's newest Dragon Ball title, "Dragon Ball FighterZ", marks the video game introduction of Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Vegeta. Goku and Vegeta, as seen in revealed gameplay footage, can both transform into various Super Saiyan forms so this isn't a far-fetched concern at all. Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan is quite the mouthful, so we'll just shorten it to Super Saiyan Blue like they do in Dragon Ball Super.

The two high-powered fighters will apparently be separate characters, not in-fight transformations. Specific details on the story mode have yet to be revealed, but it's being called a "new story for Goku and friends depicted in high-end animation", one where "super warrior fall one by one".

While Androids 16 and 18 are official, 17 might not be joining the roster despite his prominence in the current arc of Dragon Ball Super. Weirdly enough, there's no Android 17 to go along with the trio from the show, but hey - it's the Androids, and we're not here to complain so much. In addition to the four new roster members, other characters who will be featured in the fighting game are the aforementioned Goku and Vegeta, Gohan, Trunks, Piccolo, Krillin, Frieza, Cell and Majin Buu.

More nuggets on the online portion of the game were also divulged, with six players participating in three-versus-three matches.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is slated for release sometime in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
