The Dragon Ball Z roster is expanding even further. Battle of Z, the next super-powered brawler in the series, will have over 70 playable characters, including Super Saiyan God Goku, Full Power Form Frieza, and Captain Ginyu.

“Super Saiyan God Goku is a very important character in the movie [Battle of Gods],” producer Shuhei Sekii told Siliconera. “In terms of character balance, I am trying to make God Goku a little bit stronger than the other characters, but we are still working on balance.”

Sekii also explained a system whereby characters in Battle of Z are split into 4 different types: fighting, support, ki blast, and interference. There’s no solid detail on what these mean just yet, but you can probably work it out.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PlayStation Vita in sometime in 2014.
