Two more characters have been announced for Dragon Ball FighterZ; Krillin and Piccolo will be joining the anime fighting game’s roster when it launches early next year.
The news comes from the latest issue of Japanese magazine V-Jump (via Gematsu). Here’s a brief break-down of each character’s strengths and weaknesses.
Piccolo has technical skills such as extending his arms to grasp his opponent and charge techniques. He has a variety of methods to break the opponent’s guard. He can fire beams at super high speeds. By long-pressing the button, he can charge up for a stronger attack. He also has a technique that fires a Ki blast to deal great damage. When connecting from a combo, it will deal even greater damage.
Krillin has low power and reach, but can use a variety of techniques. He can even use Kamehameha, meaning fighting from a distance should not be a problem. He can use skills to confuse the enemy such as the “Afterimage Technique,” which leaves behind an image of Krillin before turning into an attack. He can also use “Destructo Disc,” which is impossible to guard against. After firing Ki blasts, Krillin can alter their trajectory and have them explode in the sky to shoot out multiple Ki blasts.
Piccolo and Krillin now join the likes of Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Cell, Frieza, and Majin Buu. It was revealed at EVO 2017 over the weekend that Trunks would also be joining the fray. You can check out his trailer here.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to release in early 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A closed beta is also on the way, with signups opening July 26.
