Dragon Ball FighterZ's roster of characters is a great representation of the beloved series from across the years. Developer Bandai Namco recently announced that Goku Black, Hit, and Beerus--three characters from the currently-airing Dragon Ball Super series--will be playable in its upcoming fighting game, and we got some hands-on time with them.
During a recent event, we took each of these newcomers into battle and--as is the case for most of the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster--they're very faithful to their characters. Goku Black is a powerhouse, arrogantly cutting down his opponents while quickly moving around the screen for tricky mixups. Beerus, meanwhile, summons energy balls to make him tricky to approach and hard to escape. Hit, meanwhile, lives up to his reputation as a deadly assassin, teleporting around the battlefield to deliver crushing blows in the blink of an eye. You can see all these characters in action in the video above.

Dragon Ball FighterZ releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26. The game will have a season pass that adds eight more characters to the roster post-launch. Those who pre-order any version will unlock Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta early as a bonus. Pre-ordering the game digitally from the PlayStation and Xbox Stores will also get you early access to the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ open beta.
