It looks like three more characters will be jumping into the fray in Dragon Ball FighterZ. Thanks to the latest issue of V-Jump Adult Gohan, Kid Buu and Gotenks are now confirmed to be playable in he upcoming Arc System Works fighting game as well.

All three of these characters debuted in the Buu Saga and were additions that many had assumed would be joining the roster sooner or later. These expectations weren’t entirely unfounded either, because some people noticed during a recent Bandai Namco livestream that Gohan’s name was changed to ‘Teen Gohan,” suggesting that other forms of him would be added to the roster.

Just like other members of the cast, the three newcomers’ movesets are heavily inspired by the source material. Adult Gohan can use his ki to enhance the strength of his attacks, such as the Ultimate Kamehameha super; Kid Buu is small but is unpredictable and comes equipped with the Planet Burst super; and Gotenks has a plethora of flash moves such as his Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack and Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball.

Outside of the new characters, the magazine highlighted two new features:

— Shop:  Players will be able spend the Zeni they earn in battle to purchase character color variations and titles.
— Arcade Mode: Players will fight a predetermined amount of opponents and the route will change based on their performance.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will is due out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on Jan. 26 in North America and Europe, and Feb. 1 in Japan.
