In a scan of this month’s V-Jump, three new playable fighters were revealed in Bandai Namco and Arc System Works’ new fighting game, Dragon Ball FighterZ. 

The first character is Android 21, a completely original female character from the game’s story mode. Dragon Ball FighterZ will tell a “What If” story like many Dragon Ball games before it. The narrative revolves around Android 16, so it’ll be interesting to see how Android 21 will effect the story, and just how powerful she truly is.

Also, the Z-Fighters Tien, Yamcha, and Chiaotzu were all confirmed for FighterZ. Chiaotzu will be a support character while Tien and Yamcha will be playable. The scan (seen below) shows Yamcha using his famous Wolf Fang Fist and Spirit Ball, while Tien can be seen using his Neo Tri-Beam technique.

In case you missed the recent Dragon Ball FighterZ news, Bandai Namco revealed four new fighters in August including, Android 16, Android 18, Super Saiyan Blue Goku, and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in February 2018. Earlier this summer Bandai Namco announced that they’d be open to porting the game to the Switch if demand is high enough. You can check out the new scans from V-Jump down below:
