February’s still a long ways off when it comes to the release of Dragon Ball FighterZ, but it’s awesome of Bandai Namco to keep us in the loop with new trailers to get excited over. And today brought quite the double-decker that anime and fighting fans alike can appreciate.
We’ve included the two trailers below, and they have a ton of action that will get you pumped up for the 2D fighting action, as if the ever-growing roster for the game didn’t do that enough already. Time to throw some fireballs!
First up is Son Gohan, a new take on the familiar character, brought in to do some major damage to opponents. Son Gohan can unleash some quick hits that will send opponents flying around the room, with teleport-like effects. But if that’s not enough, his super is unspeakably strong, as he sends an enormous fireball blast going across the screen, pretty much covering the entire spectrum. So even if you think you might be able to jump out of its range, there’s a good chance you’ll get laid to waste.
We’d love to see a fight between Son Gohan and Gohan go down, if only because, well, it’d be one hell of a battle. Plus, who knows what kind of fiery attacks they could throw at one another to prove superiority?
On the other hand, we have Majin Buu, who’s going to do all kinds of damage in his own right. Don’t let his enormous size fool you, as he has the speed and capability of destroying foes quickly, particularly with smash hits that can do a whole lot of damage. Also, he’s got a really bizarre super, where he turns his enemy into a morsel of food, then pops them in his mouth. More than likely, he’ll do additional damage to them there, but, honestly, how many fighting games do you see where opponents are turned into food? Ice blocks, sure. Even flaming skeletons. But food? Majin Buu is getting it done in Dragon Ball FighterZ. Imagine how crazy he gets on an empty stomach…
