Fighter Hails From Franchise's Newest Movie
According to scans found obtained by Shonen Game's Twitter account, it has been revealed that the Dragon Ball Super version of Broly will be joining the cast of Dragon Ball FighterZ on December 5th and will be priced at 500 yen in Japan and 5.00 dollars in the USA. He is the second character to hail from the latest Dragon Ball movie, with the first being SSGS Gogeta, a character formed from the fusion of Dragon Ball series heroes Vegata and Goku. Previous characters from the game's second season of DLC include Tournament of Power antagonist Jiren, Gohan's wife Videl, and the evil demon Janemba.
This particular Broly represents a different character than that of the Broly that was made available in the game's first season pass. Whereas Dragon Ball Z Broly made his first appearance in a non-canon movie in the early 1990s, Dragon Ball Super Broly made his debut in a film release in January of 2019 that continues the story of the Dragon Ball Super anime. While both characters share a similar backstory and personalities, they possess different fighting styles and play differently from one another in-game. According to pre-release media, Dragon Ball Super Broly is a powerful character who hits hard and possesses superior strength but is slower than other characters in the roster.
Released in January of 2018 Dragon Ball FighterZ is a 3-on-3 tag-team fighter developed by Arc System Works, a company known for creating the Blazblue and Guilty Gear franchises. The game features characters from across Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super, alongside Android 21, a character unique to the game, taking part in an original storyline not seen anywhere else.
