Dragon Ball FighterZ recently announced a second season of DLC characters will soon be making their way into the popular fighting game, and one of the characters leading the character is probably one of the most requested, Universe 11's Jiren.
Like the other characters in the game, developed Arc System Works has paid an incredible attention to detail and fans can't believe how well Jiren's moveset has been translated into the fighter. Especially, his hilarious spin counter.

As noted by @KenXyro on Twitter, one of Jiren's moves that made it to his move set is a special counter he debuted in his fight with Universe 6's Hit in Episode 111 of Dragon Ball Super. Jiren's moveset appropriately seems to be full of counters, but this hilarious one has him counter an opponent's move and then spin them like a top. The move has since inspired tons of memes online since its debut, so it's great to see it begin a new life in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
There's also another iconic Jiren move from the same fight, actually. Later in the episode, Jiren attacks hit with a ki blast and launches him into the sky. Turning his back to Hit and taking on a heroic pose, Hit then explodes in a grand way behind him. This move made it to FighterZ as well and will definitely be used as a way to rub salt in the wound should Jiren players win their matches this way.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. FighterZ Pass 2 will officially launch on January 31, and will run interested fans $24.99 USD. The releases begin with Jiren and Videl, which will also be available for $4.99 individually.
Dragon Ball Super currently airs its English dub on Adult Swim during the Toonami programming block Saturday evenings at 11:00 p.m. It is also available to stream on Funimation and Amazon Video. The Japanese language release of the series is complete, and available to stream on FunimationNOW and Crunchyroll. The manga has chapters that can currently be read for free thanks to Viz Media. Tickets are currently on sale for Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which opened in theaters in the United States on January 16.
If you wanted to catch up with the English dub of the series, there's actually a pretty nifty way to do so. You can currently stream the first 78 episodes of the series on FunimationNOW, which brings the series from the beginning all the way to when the Tournament of Power was initially announced.
