Yamcha, Tien, and New Character Android 21 Confirmed for Dragon Ball FighterZ

The latest V-Jump magazine (via ShonenGamez) has revealed some new playable characters for Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Both Tien and Yamcha are returning as playable combatants, alongside a completely new and original character – Android 21.

Android 21 was designed by Akira Toriyama and is said to be a main character of the game’s story. She has an intellect likened to that of Dr. Gero, the creator of the androids. Her story is shrouded in mystery and is supposed to create a big ruckus in the story.

Yamcha is more of a ground fighter that typically fights at close range. He naturally uses his Wolf Fang Fist attack, as well as the Spirit Ball, which can be controlled with direct player input. Tien can use his Tri-Beam technique, his Volleyball Attack, and more.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is launching sometime next February, worldwide, across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. In case you missed it – we recorded exclusive, hands-on gameplay for the game, complete with our commentary on how it plays and feels. You can find that here.
