Not that I wouldn't mind them exploring at least one universe, but all of them? Uhh... no thanks lol

EDIT:

Ew, first post of the page.

Lmao, quoting what I said in the OP

How many characters can we expect ?

It takes a lot of time to make those characters. So it won't have a huge roster.

You can expect at the very least 18 characters, and 30 at most.

So a realistic expectation, would be anywhere from 21 to 24.

Where are you getting that number? It could just as easily be 16 based on the layout at the bottom.

16 is what GG Xrd started with, and that was a single fighter pure Arc project. 24 actually seems believable now.

24 is about 10 too few for a 3v3 game, and with some characters being designed specifically to support, it's probably going to be worse than, say, Marvel 3 would be if it only had that many.

I figured that's about what we'd get, though. It's just going to be a major issue.

Ok, some confirmations.

There will be two (at least) more Goku and Vegeta. (edit : meant one of each)

And at least one more Gohan.

Trunks is called "Trunks".

Goku is called "Goku SS" and Vegeta "Vegeta SS".

Gohan is called "Gohan Y" (aka Gohan young, to differentiate him from the older Gohan).

And probably another Majin Buu. (fat buu is called majinBoo-z)

Sure, but that whole period of exploration and creativity is going to take a major hit in it's first year or so and that really sucks.

The one assist thing doesn't help either thinking on it.

See them as "Evil Ryu" kind of stuff I guess.

I just hope they're EX versions and not literally new characters. Otherwise that's a rather bad sign for updates to characters like Trunks and 17.

But they might update the interface etc... whenever/if they add more Super versions.

Yep, everything's falling into place.

- SSB Goku
- SSB Vegeta
- Ultimate Gohan
- Kid Buu or Super Buu

I wonder how the new Buu will differ from Fat Buu from a playstyle perspective hmm.

I see Beerus as the final boss too. Either him or Golden Freeza. Maybe Beerus will be a secret boss that you have to beat in order to unlock, who knows.

I got a Barnes&Noble giftcard so I treated myself to the first two DBZ Vizbig volumes to hold me over until the game comes out, I've never read the DBZ manga before, just original DB.

If it's true, 24 is quite a few more characters than I expected, although if SSB Goku & Vegeta count as two of em I could see it. That's still plenty of room for almost all of the major characters.

Telling you right now they'll have the exact same normals, but the specials and supers might change.

I mean, it's not like they are stealing spots, they're very low effort / work. They're more like bonuses I guess.

If there's 22 chars with them, that means it was gonna be 20 without them. Not 22 with two other unique characters.

Yeah, I mean it does save time and effort while still bolstering the roster. I just wish at least SOME of the normals were slightly different. Or they had different properties.

I'm just worried people won't take it well, because I'm sure they won't.

To be fair they fight the exact same way in both forms, so they don't warrant new normals.

Having new specials that allow for different combos etc... as well as new costume, super and cutscenes, will be enough to content most people.

It also opens up the door for future characters to receive similar updates (new costume supers etc..) with their performance in Super. Mainly Trunks and 17. It wouldn't take them as long to make them, and many people would buy those since they're popular.

Since most DB fighting games feature flying characters it's not a surprise he didn't make many appearances. Strange that he still can't do it in the show though, especially since he was given a power boost.
BT3 had him desperately swim in the air though, that was hilarious.

Flight technique was taught by his rival school. That's the reason the show sticks to it.

I feel like there are ways to do it similar to how they bypass no flight with Satan.
Now I need to look that up with Roshi in BT3.

Yeah but since flying was trivialized in Z and just about everyone in the multiverse can pull it off I feel that's not a good excuse anymore.

Could just be future proofing it in case of DLC but its not like a second Gohan and Buu were risky guesses anyway

24 is a healthy roster for a new fighting game, and an okay roster for a team based fighting game.

Now we just need to see how they use those remaining fifteen slots. There is enough room for them to launch with an amazing roster, but past Dragon Ball Z games have shown us how to squander spots with repeat characters...

What I wonder is if that includes DLC or not.

But also dude, Yamcha voice actor had said he had a crazy recording session for Yamcha.

Virtually nothing related to Yamcha happened in months (and won't happen for months since we're in the middle of an arc he isn't a part of), so there's a good chance he might make it in FZ.

It also lines up with Chuck Huber (supposedly) confirming he had recorded his lines for FZ as of July 30.

Let's hope my man.

I know... but now I am starting to believe, and that scares me.

It seems like there is reason to believe that both 17 and Yamcha are going to make it... Seems a little too convenient, doesn't it Slaythe? They are just trying to break us down.

Also, he would have the great Battle of Gods design and not the shitty Z one. o/



Well, 17 is currently getting about 5000 times more popular by kicking ass in Dragon Ball Super.

He's getting a lot of push in Heroes too.



And virtually nothing has happened for Yamcha, whose voice actor put a lot of effort into recording sessions. The Chuck Huber rumor is unconfirmed, but it would also match with the timing of what the JP voice actor said for Yamcha.

There won't be a special or other games so... I want to believe.

I just noticed, both of them are team #longHair lmao.

I don't think Yamcha's necessarily a long shot, even for a 16-character roster. Look at it this way:

there are 9 characters so far (Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Krillin, Piccolo, Trunks, Frieza, Cell, Buu)

add the remaining tournament participants (17, 18, Roshi, Tien)

that'd leave 3 slots and, presuming they stick to Z and the two Super movies, there aren't a ton of options to choose from and I could totally see Yamcha making the cut.
