Dragon Ball FighterZ Will Add Ultra Instinct Goku To Its Roster
Ultra Instinct first appeared in Dragon Ball Super.
Dragon Ball FighterZ will get at least one more fighter, with Ultra Instinct Goku set to appear in the game this year. The new DLC was announced in Japanese V Jump Magazine, and shared by the Twitter account Dragon Ball Hype.

It's unclear if this new character heralds a third FighterZ Pass, but Gematsu reports that we'll learn more during the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour Finals 2019 – 2020 in February.
This is the eighth Goku in the game, not counting the very Goku-like Bardock. Ultra Instinct Goku will join a roster that already includes Super Saiyan Goku, Super Saiyan Blue Goku, Goku Black, base form Goku, Super Saiyan Blue Vegito (Goku and Vegeta fused), Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta (Goku and Vegeta fused, but with a different method) and kid Goku from Dragon Ball GT.
Ultra Instinct was introduced in the latest anime series, Dragon Ball Super, during the Tournament of Power arc. The form shown in the magazine is "mastered" Ultra Instinct, a form in which the body reacts instinctively to every situation. The power-scaling in Dragon Ball FighterZ means that even Yamcha and Videl will potentially be able to beat Goku in this form. It's not yet clear what Ultra Instinct Goku's moveset will be.
A brand new Dragon Ball game, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, is also out now.
