Recently, it was officially announced that Trunks will be joining the roster for the upcoming fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ. Today (July 18), two more characters were confirmed: Krillin and Piccolo.
Piccolo will have the ability to stretch out his arms and grab his opponents. He will also have charge attacks, can break his opponents’ guards and “can fire beams at super high speeds.” Krillin, on the other hand, has low power and reach, but has several unique techniques. Krillin will have a move called “Afterimage Technique,” with which Krillin leaves behind an image of himself before attacking. He will also be able to use his signature attack, “Destructo Disc,” which cannot be blocked. Krillin can also use Kamehameha and make his Ki blasts explode in the sky to rain down more Ki blasts.
Other characters that have been confirmed for Dragon Ball FighterZ include Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Cell, Frieza and Majin Buu. The game is expected to release early in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It’s possible that the game will release on the Switch at some point too, but nothing is confirmed. If the game does come to the Switch, the Switch version will be worked on sometime after the Switch version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 comes out in September. In the meantime, a closed beta of Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to open next week on July 26.
