Kid Goku Joining Dragon Ball FighterZ Roster
To be a kid again.
The latest confirmed DLC characters for Arc System Works' Dragon Ball FighterZ were Jiren and Videl, both of which launched at the end of January 2019. The trailer for the game's FighterZ Pass 2, which both Jiren and Videl are part of, revealed an additional four slots for unannounced characters. We've now learned that Kid Goku, from the non-canon Dragon Ball GT series, is the game's next fighter.
According to a post by Gematsu, Kid Goku will be playable via paid DLC. Of course, as with other post-launch characters, Kid Goku can be purchased via in-game currency, though the amount's currently unknown. Similarly, the price for Kid Goku has yet to be revealed, but it's safe to assume he'll cost $4.99 USD, the same price as every other DLC character available.
The post outlines some of Kid Goku's moves. His special, Super Kamehameha, transforms him into Super Saiyan 3 when "there are two or fewer overall team members remaining." It's unclear if this transformation is permanent or temporary though. He also comes equipped with a couple of Meteor specials like Super Spirit Bomb and a second hidden attack, as well as Power Pole and Reverse Kamehameha. Unfortunately, there isn't a confirmed release date for Kid Goku yet.
In our Dragon Ball FighterZ review, we said the game's "complex and distinct enough to be enjoyed by fighting game competitors, but there's no question that it's been designed to tap into the hearts of Dragon Ball's most dedicated fans," saying it has "bottled the essence of what makes the series' characters, animation, and sense of humor so beloved and reconfigured it into something new."
Dragon Ball FighterZ is available now for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
