Dragon Ball FighterZ Adds Kid Buu, Adult Gohan, and Gotenks to the Roster

The three iconic fighters from the Buu saga are now all confirmed to be making an appearance in Arc System Works' upcoming fighter, Dragon Ball FighterZ.

The fine folks over at ShonenGames have translated the latest scan for Arc System Works’ Dragon Ball FighterZ from Japan’s monthly V-Jump Magazine. The scan appears to confirm three new characters coming to the game: Adult Gohan, Kid Buu, and Gotenks. As with every confirmed character, it looks like Arc has done a fantastic job recreating the iconic techniques the characters used during the Majin Buu saga.

Adult Gohan will appear in FighterZ wearing his badass orange gi. If you don’t remember, Kibito Kai gave Gohan the same outfit as his father, Goku, after he received his mystic powers from the Elder Kai. This is Gohan in his strongest form and according to the scan, you’ll be able to use your energy gauge to unlock Gohan’s full potential, although the longer you wait and fill your gauge, the longer you’ll be able to keep him powered up. As expected, you’ll also be able to use an Ultimate Kamehameha technique with Gohan.

Kid Buu is as intimidating as ever in Dragon Ball FighterZ. Although he’s a tinier character, it looks like his fighting style will be a little bit more unpredictable as he can extend his arms and legs to various lengths. The scan also shows Kid Buu using his Planet Burst technique. This was the skill he used in his final battle against Goku, Vegeta, and Hercule on Supreme Kai’s world.

Finally, everybody’s favorite over-the-top super Saiyan, Gotenks, will be the first Fusion character making their debut in Dragon Ball FighterZ. He definitely has some of the most standout techniques in the series and it’ll be interesting to see how those translate over into a competitive fighting game. In the scan, we can see him using his “Buu Buu Volleyball” and “Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack.”

You can check out the full scan for yourself down below. Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC early next year on January 26th, 2018. According to the game’s producer, the title could come to the Nintendo Switch if fans show enough interest.
