    Since this post was made, Future Trunks, Krillin, Piccolo, Android 18 (with 17 as an assist), and Android 16 have all been announced as being on the base roster, along with Super Saiyan Blue Goku and SSB Vegeta as unlockable characters.

    The game's website also hints that we'll be getting multiple forms for Gohan and Buu, since they (along with Goku and Vegeta) have additional details listed beside their names on their character pages.

    I've done a mock-up of what I think the roster could be like, though I'm not 100% sure about some of the choices.

    [​IMG]

    I figure there will be a lot of overlap between Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden, the 3DS fighting game made by Arc System Works, and this game in terms of their rosters. The only character that I cut was Broly, since Kale is very similar, and I didn't include Jiren because I figure that there's not much known about him at the point where they're developing the game. (so far, in the ongoing arc, I'm pretty sure he's only attacked a grand total of once)

    Aside from the roster of Extreme Butoden (minus Broly) and the already-announced characters, I included the following people:

    Tien: the three major Dragon Ball heroes who weren't in Extreme Butoden were Tien, Yamcha, and Roshi. Yamcha has the least varied moveset of the three, and while Roshi nearly made the cut, Tien's more consistently prominent. (plus, he can fly, and one of the producers is a fan of him from what I've read)

    Hit: of the opponents in the Universe 6 vs. Universe 7 arc, Hit is easily the most unique and popular. Botamo and Magetta may be unique, but they aren't all that noteworthy, and Frost and Cabba may be quite important, but they aren't unique.

    Fused Zamasu: aside from being the most unambiguously evil villain that Super has, he seems like a good fit for the "ultra cheap final boss" concept that most fighting games run with. (either him or Beerus, but Zamasu has the look for it)

    Kale: I went with her over Broly because, while both are popular, Kale's more recent and has more of a personality than "destroy Kakarot!"

    Caulifla: it seems weird to have Kale and not include her as well; besides, of the Universe 6 Saiyans who have been shown, she seems to be the most prominent.

    I finding it strange this thread isn't getting enough attention. This has all the makings of a great game! The main post might want to include Piccolo, Krillen, Android 16, and Android 18/17.

    I hope they don't create a massive roster that seems to plague DBZ-fighting games in my opinion. Here is a list of characters I would like to see included:

    Tien/Chaotzu (18/17 type pairing)
    Yamacha/Paur (Puar will have a greatly lessened role)
    Goten
    Trunks
    Brolly
    Bardock
    Kid Buu
    Beerus
    Whis
    Master Roshi
    Frost
    Hit
    Satan

    And a few curve balls for good measure

    King Piccolo
    Garlic Jr.
    Tapion
    Uub
    Grandpa Gohan

    My predictions for the roster:

    • Tien (with Chiaotzu showing up in certain moves)
    • Yamcha or Mr. Satan (joke character)
    • Captain Ginyu (with Ginyu Force incorporated into his moves)
    • Gotenks
    • Ultimate Gohan
    • Super Buu (they could maybe incorporate Buutenks/Buuccolo/Buuhan so he has different moves/stats depending on the form)
    • Kid Buu
    • Broly
    • Bardock
    • Beerus
    • Hit
    • Caulifla (we need some more female representation)
    • Goku Black (with Rose transformation)
    • Fused Zamasu (with corrupted transformation, like Megadoomer said he could be the final boss)

    And my personal wishlist which has no chance of making it:

    • Gogeta (with SSJ4 transformation)
    • Super Vegito (with SSB transformation)
    • SSJ4 Goku
    • Janemba
    • Cooler

    I've never been a fan of stand alone transformations as characters. When it's included with the character, that gives us the incentive to wish to power into it.

    As for fusions, given the team-up nature of he game, perhaps it could be possible to fuse with certain characters to combine two characters into one? This could be a special mechanic that lasts for a certain time limit but enhances all the stats and allows for new moves and abilities?

    Tien, Yamcha, and the brand new character Android 21 confirmed. Chiaotzu also shows up in some of Tien's moves like many were expecting:

    Unknown if 21 is playable as of now, though she looks cool.

    Trailers have been released for Tien and Yamcha.



    Watching this, combined with the latest Super episodes, makes me want to see Roshi in this game, just to see what they could do with him.

    Nappa and Captain Ginyu confirmed.

    [​IMG]

    Nappa can use Saibamen in his moveset. Ginyu utilizes the Ginyu force as expected, and he has body change which even swaps your health. I expect this will lead to a ton of salt.

    People are mad about Nappa but personally I'm glad he made it. We need more heavy characters and he has a ton of moveset potential.

    Some potential information about Dragon Ball FighterZ - this seems way too specific to be a placeholder.

    The release date seems to be January 26th, 2018. That seems weird, since it's earlier than the Japanese release date.

    Also, there's going to be eight DLC characters - Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Vegeta are advertised as "early unlocks" as opposed to DLC, so it's going to be eight characters that we don't know about yet.

    I'm guessing at least half of them will be from the Tournament of Power (Jiren, Caulifla, Kale, Ribrianne?), and they'll come out after that arc has finished. Maybe Android 21 will be one of them? From what we've seen, she doesn't seem to be a playable character at the moment.

    That's the same release day as Monster Hunter World and 2 days before Dissidia: Final Fantasy NT comes out.

    Steam page is up: http://store.steampowered.com/app/678950/DRAGON_BALL_FighterZ/

    Releasing on January 28th for $60. FighterZ edition includes a season pass for 8 new characters after the game releases all for $95 (essentially $4.38 per character). Ultimate edition includes the season pass, 11 anime music tracks, and some voice commentary for a whopping $110.

    It's funny seeing people freakout about the season pass, as if DBFZ is the only game out there that plans a season pass ahead of time. If all the 8 DLC characters are fully in-game at launch then I can understand the frustration, but otherwise everyone is making mountains out of molehills.

    I do agree though that the ultimate edition is overpriced, but I'm assuming it's because of licensing regarding the anime's soundtrack. Either way I'll most likely get the base game though I might get the FighterZ edition.

    -----

    So who do you guys think the 8 DLC characters will be? My predictions:
    • Super Buu
    • Vegito (with SSB transformation)
    • Janemba
    • Hit
    • Goku Black
    • Merged Zamasu
    • Caulifla
    • Ultra Instinct Goku

    I feel like it depends on what the final roster is (they may throw some curveballs in there), but if I had to guess...

    Jiren
    Kale
    Caulifla


    All three of them are for the same reason - they're major characters in the Tournament of Power, but that won't be done for a while.

    Android 21

    From what we've seen so far, she doesn't appear to be playable, but I could see her being the first character added through DLC.

    Hit
    Fused Zamasu

    Depends on if we're getting any Super content in the base game or not. If not, then they seem like the best options, as they're the main villains of Super's story arcs. (if they do make it into the base game, replace them with other major characters from the Tournament of Power, like Toppo and Ribrianne)

    Vegito

    I'm not sure if they'd add a third Goku through DLC, but fusions between Goku and Vegeta seem popular enough that I could see one of them making it in.

    Janemba

    This seems like a long shot, but I could see him working well in the game. He's unique, both in terms of design and abilities, and he's fairly popular. Not as popular as Broly or Cooler, but I can't see us getting both Kale and Broly. Alternatively, replace him with Roshi or Bardock if they don't make it onto the base roster.

    EDIT: Given that Android 21, some form of Zamasu, and Hit are playable, I'd replace them and Vegito with Dr. Gero, Kid Goku, Roshi, and Toppo.

    To sum it up, my preferences would be Jiren, Toppo, Caulifla, Kale, Janemba, Dr. Gero, Kid Goku, and Master Roshi

    Gotenks, Kid Buu, and Ultimate Gohan confirmed:


    [​IMG]


    All were expected but still great to finally see. Gotenks even has his volleyball move, and the other person hitting it can be Piccolo or someone on your team.

    Also while unconfirmed, Beerus and Hit are most likely going to be in-game as well based on this screenshot.

    [​IMG]

    So assuming Beerus and Hit are true, that brings the roster count to 22. lt's been widely speculated that there will be 24 characters, so who could the other 2 be?

    Beerus, Hit, and Rose Black officially confirmed.

    [​IMG]

    (lol to those who thought the Hit pic from earlier was Ginyu)

    Also special KO's based on famous DB scenes:

    [​IMG]

    So now the roster is up to 23 characters, and I'm assuming the final one will be Android 21. Just one more month...

    For once I really like a fighting game roster. They managed to include iconic characters along with unique and fun characters to create a balanced roster. Still hoping we get Brolly, Master Roshi, Dabora, Janeemba, Jaco, and Cooler.

    For anyone planning to get the game through Steam, the PC requirements have been revealed.

    If you Google "finding graphics card", you should be able to see how to determine if your computer's specifications are good enough. With Windows 10, you just type "dxdiag" into the search on the bottom-left corner.

    Especially if we get a Switch port down the line.

    I'm more interested in how unique everyone plays. Yamcha, for example, seems to be the Rekka Ken character, which should mean that he's good against opponents that like to block since he could change up very quickly whether he's attacking high or low. Android 16 is obviously a grappler. However, as far as most of the rest of the cast goes, it isn't clear to me how the characters are significantly different from one another, which might be because a lack of imagination on the part of the devs or the beta players I've seen thus far. It seems like you could play almost any character and still get the same experience, like your choice doesn't matter---unlike Vergil, versus Phoenix Wright, versus Iron Fist. That doesn't make a good fighting game, in my opinion.

    With a starting roster of 24 and 8 DLCs confirmed, we've been trying to figure out who could be DLC.

    Here's some speculation, divided into 5 categories
    • Appeared in original series up to the End of Z
    • Appeared in the movies
    • Appeared in Super (specifically, the Univeral Surival Arc)
    • Appeared in GT or other non-canon work
    • Oh man, not another [character already in game]
    DBFZ.png

    I have a hard time making a list of 8 I'm confident in but ones I think are locks are
    1. Broly
    2. Jiren
    3. Master Roshi (super gave him a lot to work with)
    4. The Universe 6 female Sayians (either as Kale or Califla with the other as assist or as Kaefla)
    5. Arale (if licencing is sorted out)
    6. Bardock
    What do you all think?

    My guesses for DLC are:

    • Broly (very popular and we need more giant characters)
    • Janemba (another popular movie character, who has potential for his teleportation and sword attacks)
    • Roshi (series staple)
    • Vegito w/ SSB transformation (very popular and has a ton of moveset potential)
    • Super Buu w/ various absorption transformations (could have an interesting mechanic where he can transform into Buuhan/Buucolo/Buutenks, each with their own moves/stats similar to Shulk's monado arts; also the only main version of Buu we don't have yet)
    • Merged Zamasu w/ the half purple face (again we need more bulky characters and he has a lot of potential)
    • Kefla (very popular with a lot of moveset potential, plus we need more female fighters; a Caulifla/Kale duo like 17/18 could also work)
    • Jiren (easily the strongest opponent Goku has faced as of now so he is ripe for being a character)
    Honorable mentions: Cooler, Dabura, Gogeta.

    There could also be some characters from GT (Omega Shenron, SSJ4 Gogeta) but I'm going to assume GT won't be present at all.

    Now that the game's out, who has it? Which characters are you enjoying?

    I'm really liking Kid Buu so far, though I'll have to experiment with other characters to see which ones I particularly enjoy playing as.

    My brother's copy just came in today. So far I've been enjoying Gotenks, Nappa, and Teen SSJ2 Gohan. Yamcha has also been very fun to use.

    Bardock and Broly confirmed as the first 2 DLC characters:

    [​IMG]

    Broly was expected though I'm surprised at Bardock, especially since everyone complained about there being so many Goku-like characters. Still glad he made it though. Broly's confirmation also means we can start speculating movie characters, so Janemba and Cooler still have a chance.
