Goku and Vegeta fight at full power in the latest trailer for Dragon Ball FighterZ.
For those who haven’t been keeping up with Dragon Ball, Super Saiyan Blue is the Super Saiyan equivalent to Super Saiyan God’s base form. Both Goku and Vegeta achieved this form fairly early in the new anime series, Dragon Ball Super.
In the trailer above the two Saiyans wipe the floor with Krillin, 18, and Piccolo, and turn on each other. It looks like their specials and some of their moves will be unique to Blue form, so it’s not just an increase in power or a change of aesthetic (Goku can be seen using kaio-ken in this form during the trailer, boosting his power). In the anime Blue is infamous for draining stamina fast, but it’s not clear if that will be a mechanic in FighterZ.
It’s not yet clear if other elements from Dragon Ball Super will make their way into FighterZ, which seems to largely focus on characters and backgrounds from Z (including Android 16, who was getting his skull crushed by also-playable Cell last we saw him).
Preordering the game will give you an ‘early unlock’ of both characters, which implies that they will be unlockable within the game.
Dragon Ball FighterZ will launch during 2018 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
