DBZ fans may be focused on Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, especially with new details regularly being revealed about the title (most recently, it revealed some Vegeta-related gameplay), but publisher Bandai Namco is still supporting last year's popular fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ with new playable characters. Only last month, movie villain Janemba was released, and now we have a release date for the next one - Gogeta.
It'll be the Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta who appeared in the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie, as well. According to the latest issue of V-Jump, Dragon Ball FighterZ's Gogeta will be released next week on September 26th. The magazine also provided some extra details about a couple of his moves:
God Punisher (Super Special Attack) – Follows up an energy blast hit with multiple consecutive energy blast follow-ups. By further pressing the button you can unleash the rainbow-colored “Stardust Breaker” energy blast for a massive explosion.
Meteor Explosion (Meteor Attack) – A multiple hit attack that starts with a dash punch. When you have 2 or more Ki Gauge it follows with an “Ultimate Kamehameha” that is Gogeta’s full-power Kamehameha.
Not only that, but Gogeta will have a Dramatic Finish (a unique cutscene that plays at the end of a match if certain requirements are met) when he beats Janemba, obviously referencing their fight in the Fusion Reborn movie. It's unknown if he'll have one with Broly as well, but considering the DBZ: FighterZ's Broly isn't the Super version of the character, it seems unlikely. Fans can also check out some of his gameplay from Gogeta's announcement trailer that was shown during this year's EVO.
For those who might not know, Gogeta is the second fusion form for Goku and Vegeta. He is considered to be one of the strongest versions of Goku, even without the Super Saiyan Blue transformation. This still leaves one more character to be released - the Broly that starred in the Super: Broly movie, but there is currently no word on when he'll release or if Bandai Namco have any plans to release more characters afterwards.
Meanwhile, a new rumor has sparked up about DBZ: Kakarot, which claims that it will feature some sort of baseball minigame, possibly referencing the episode from the anime where Gohan played the sport at high school. Considering certain filler episodes from the show have been confirmed to appear in the game, it sounds plausible but should still be taken with a grain of salt.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is available right now on PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
