Dragon Ball FighterZ August 2021 patch notes so far

Attacks performed after Super Attacks now have lower damage scaling, except for Ultimate Z Changes.

Example of the new patch in action with Super Saiyan Goku:

Gohan Adult has been buffed, he can now perform a mid-air dash twice if Level 3 or higher, and has more Super Combo routes at Level 5 or higher.

Broly is getting buffed as well. He’ll deal bigger damage when using Gigantic Claw, and he’s now invincible to Z Assists when he activates Powered Shell.

Goku (Base) is getting buffed as well. Kaioken will have an additional input through the Heavy button and now has invincibility from the beginning. This makes Kaioken a safer move.

Ultimate Z Change modification for Jiren. When a team member is Down, you can trigger Colossal Uppercut with Jiren instead of an Ultimate Z Change when pressing the Assist button of the Downed character.

OVA villain Janemba is getting buffed too. His Demonic Blade will cover more distance now when used with the Medium or Heavy Button.

Over on Reddit, all of the changes have been collated ahead of Bandai Namco releasing official patch notes – you can check them all out right here.

Dragon Ball Fighterz August Update Release Date

During the exciting stream, Bandai Namco confirmed that fans won’t have too long to wait for the huge update.

The Dragon Ball Fighterz August patch will be live at some point today, on August 10.
