Bandai Releases FighterZ Launch Trailer, Plus Extra Content for Xenoverse 2

As if Bandai‘s Dragon Ball FighterZ isn’t already hyped enough, Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia has released the launch trailer for the game, an announcement of Android 21 as part of the playable (and exclusive character) roster and more content for one of their Dragon Ball titles.

To set the tone properly, here’s the launch trailer:

Meanwhile, I wouldn’t already talk about their latest announcement for Android 21, because the character’s been revealed already prior to the brief we got yesterday. But if you’re someone who’s not familiar or is just hearing about Android 21, well here’s a short explanation:

A new impressive playable character is unveiled today as Android 21 herself joins DRAGON BALL FighterZ with multiple unique Ultimate Attacks! Supervised by Akira Toriyama, Android 21 has an important role in the DRAGON BALL FighterZ story mode. She is a mysterious scientist and well known for having the same knowledge as the person who have created the Androids: Dr. Gero.  Her story is quite vague but she is connected to Android 16.  Is she an ally?

With her Tasting Cut Ultimate Attack, she drains not only the opponent’s energy but also gains their attacks! In fact the more players know how to play the other characters, the more advantage they will get! Her Meteor Ultimate Attack will allow her to shoot out a beam that changes the opponent into a cake!

Meanwhile, the brief also announced that free content for Bandai‘s other DBZ game, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will be getting a new battle system, new avatar skills, and new special costumes for Dragon Ball characters. The Limit Burst system is the new added system that can only be used once in battle. Limit Burst will temporarily and dramatically increase their character’s ability depending on the number of members in the enemy team. Boosts gained this way vary on the fighter, some characters may power-up their team members and some may lower the status of the opponent.

The new avatar coming from the free update is the Awaken Skill for the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan. This basically means that players can get the blue form for their characters which is now the current iconic look for Goku and Vegeta.

Also new swimsuits for Android 18 and Videl are added to the free content.

Meanwhile, a new Paid content is also coming for Xenoverse 2, will have new playable characters from the Tournament of Power with the paid Extra Pack 2. Pride Trooper Jien is part of the roster plus Android 17 will have a new ability to absorb attacks with a new fighting style.
