Dragon Ball FighterZ is riding a huge wave of hype right now, especially with the reveal of new fighters that are joining the party. But now, thanks to Bandai America, we may have gotten a hint of what the game’s plot is all about, with the announcement of two physical figures that will be launched alongside the game.
As previously reported by PlayStation Lifestyle, Bandai has introduced limited edition action figures based on Super Saiyan Goku and Super Saiyan Vegeta – only they’re not.
According to Bandai America’s tweet, the figures are actually based more on clones of the characters. And that’s a hint that there will be several clones that will be going up against our favorite heroes (and villains) under the direction of Android 21. We’ve seen hints of this in trailers in the past, but this seems to confirm that they’ll be entering the fight soon enough.
The tweet, which can be seen below, reads, “The clones have ARRIVED to threaten the safety of the planet! Limited Edition GameStop exclusive Dragon Stars figures from the upcoming DRAGON BALL FighterZ game are available for pre-order now!”

Each figure sold separately.
