Dragon Ball FighterZ Getting New DLC Character
"The warrior from Universe 11 is joining the fight."
Dragon Ball FighterZ's season pass wrapped up in September with the arrival of Android 17, but it appears that a new DLC character is on the way to the fighting game. Ahead of the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals this month, Bandai Namco teased that "the warrior from Universe 11 is joining the fight." [Update: The latest issue of V-Jump magazine is out, seemingly confirming that Jiren is coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ.]
No further details about the upcoming DLC character have been revealed yet, but Bandai Namco is presumably referring to Jiren, one of the Pride Troopers hailing from the aforementioned universe and the most formidable foe Goku and his companions faced off against during the Tournament of Power in Dragon Ball Super. The publisher says it will reveal more information during the World Tour Finals, which take place on January 26-27.
If Jiren is indeed added to the roster, he would mark the ninth DLC character released for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Bandai Namco hasn't teased if any other additional fighters are also planned for the game, but this does open the doors for a second season of DLC, which hopefully means there's still a chance Master Roshi can join the fight.
Dragon Ball FighterZ first launched for PS4, Xbox One, and PC last January, with a Nintendo Switch version following this past September. We awarded it a 9/10 in our Dragon Ball FighterZ review, calling it "a Dragon Ball fighting game that can go toe-to-toe with the best of the genre."
In addition to the new Dragon Ball FighterZ character, Bandai Namco announced that a new Dragon Ball game is in development. The publisher didn't share any details beyond that, but we'll likely learn more about it during the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals later this month.
