Dragon Ball FighterZ: Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks, Adult Gohan, Kid Buu Join Game

Posted on November 16, 2017

Unlock your full potential in Dragon Ball FighterZ as Adult Gohan, Kid Buu, and Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks from the Buu Saga of Dragon Ball Z make their way as confirmed playable characters in Bandai Namco Entertainment and Arc System Works’ up-coming fighter! This brings the roster of playable characters to 20. The confirmed characters thus far in addition to the three newly announced ones are Goku, Super Saiyan Blue Goku, Vegeta, Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta, Android 16, Android 18, Captain Ginyu, Cell, Future Trunks, Frieza, Teen Gohan, Majin Buu, Krillin, Nappa, Piccolo, Tien, and Yamcha. If you include the game-exclusive character Android 21 – who has not yet been shown as a playable character (just in story), but being assumed as someone who will be playable – then there are 21 playable characters so far.

Now to the new characters. First up is Kid Buu who is an all-around powerful character with the following stats: Energy: 4, Power: 4, Speed: 4, Reach: 3, Technique: 4. Kid Buu is a tricky character for opponents as he has unpredictable movements and a stretchy body. Kid Buu is equipped with the Planet Burst special attack which has the power to destroy the Earth!

Next is Adult Gohan, who is a character who has speed and technique. His stats are as follows: Energy: 2, Power: 3, Speed: 4, Reach: 3, Technique: 4. When his ki gauge is at it’s max, he can borrowed the power of the Elder Kai to unlock his hidden potential and supercharge his attacks! Depending on the amount of Ki, the power of attacks will change. Gohan is equipped with the Ultimate Kamehameha as his special attack. The amount of damage it does compared to a regular Kamehameha is far greater.

Last, but not least, is the fusion of Goten and Trunks – Gotenks – in Super Saiyan 3 form! He is equipped with the Super Ghost Kamikaze Attack, which summons ghosts and deals damage to the opponents. That’s not all though! Gotenks also has the Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball, which is a unique move that imprisons the opponent within golden rings in the shape of a ball and then can be used to play volleyball with teammates! It can be finished off with a spike to deal maximum damage! Not only that, but scenes for the Charging Ultra Buu Buu Volleyball may change depending on the combination of team members! Gotenks’ strength lies in his speed and energy as his stats are as follows – Power: 3, Speed: 4, Reach: 1, Technique: 3, Energy: 4.

In Dragon Ball FighterZ, players can purchase things like costume color variations and titles from the Item Shop. Money to purchase from the Item Shop is earned from battles. In single player, when playing in the game’s CPU in Arcade Mode, there will be ranks (as represented in the screenshot at the bottom right). Depending on your result against the enemy team – win or loss – the route which you can take in the Arcade screen of opponents can change!

    Hiromi Tsuru is dead?

  • Leo

    Sadly

  • Mugetsu a’k’a SS4 Gohan

    Heartbreaking 🙁 such a damn year

  • Fabian Ortiz

    LMFAOOOOOOOOOOO.

  • Koibito888

    I really hope Gotenks’ intro is Goten and Trunks fusing before he powers up to SSJ3. I so want fusions in this game and to get like new cutscenes of them fusing as their intros.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Bet money ppl will complain saying *why didn’t they add super characters*

  • Uchiha Madara

    That does’nt even would make sense cuz it’s called Dragonball Fighter Z and that’s why you unlock SSB Goku and SSB Vegeta at the end of the game.
    In Storm 4 was the same thing.. u unlocked THE LAST Naruto & Sasuke at the end of the game cuz they were not be a part of the story but you could unlock them early if u pre-ordered the game.
    Fact: no more Super characters in the MAIN roster.
    BUT they will add some “Highlight” characters of the series in the fighter-pass like Goku Black, Future Trunks, Zamasu, Jiren, Ultra Instinct Goku

  • PurexedSolitude;

    Neat idea but I doubt they’ll take the time out to implement it.

  • Navok76

    Kid buu saved me from using frieza and picolo, he is damn broken

  • Navok76

    Who is that?

  • gcardoso

    awesome !! Now let’s hope for Broly and Bardock to be released until the release date.. then i expect Bills and maybe black goku and hit. but that is me dreaming

  • Leo LeiGto

    Yea! this is looking a lot better now with these 3… Honestly i was very scared about the roster when they started releasing yamcha, Nappa, Ginyu… Who really wants to paly them? >_< Not that they dont belong but… if they have limited hours to work on this I would much rather have, Janemba, Toppo, Kale, Caulifa, Jiren, Omega Shenron, Pan, GT Vegeta, Bebi, Hit, Champa, Whis… On another note I think we will still get, Rose, Beerus, Hit, and Broly… if they release Caulifa, Jiren and Janemba, I will worship them forever. They already announced Link..Imean Tapion so I <3 this game.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Rumor has it that Rose is already a finished character. So the next 3 they announce could very well be Beerus, Rose and Hit. Leaving Broly for the DLC along with 13 and Tapion then we still have 4 more characters… I dont see why Super characters would not make the cut. 😀

  • Leo LeiGto

    If you stop to think about it, it does not make sense how that would happen. It would also be pretty annoying if its longer than the usual “taunt” at the beginning of the fight. They show a closeup of both players teams and they all do their usual “before fight actions.”( I can see that) What I don’t wanna watch is a fusion dance every time I fight O_o… Maybe in the story mode.

  • Di

    according to some ppl theres 3 characters left in the roster which I think will be vegito, beerus and who knows who else, hope its either Hit or bardok

  • Leo LeiGto

    I forgot about Bardock lol. Subconscious do not want . They might keep Rose, Vegito, and Broly as DLC. And release Beerus, Bardock and maybe Spirit Bomb Goku but then theres still regular vegeta O_o humm. This is making me WAKUWAKU debayo .

  • gogeta207

    R.i.p hiromi tsuru 🙁

  • gogeta207

    Hiromi tsuru has died and her last world as bulma is do your best guys we count on you 🙁 thats really sad

  • Navok76

    I don’t mind if BG rose is a DLC character, since i am maining Adult Gohan over him

  • Di

    I doubt they will make another goku just for the ultimate

  • 7610

    I think they wanted a representative for each saga of the manga that’s why Nappa and Ginyu are in, besides Ginyu seems pretty interesting to play. As for the tournament of power characters, it’s way too soon, they showed their powers only since the last few weeks, there’s no way ArcSys could have developped them for the game release, especially the Saiyan girls. As for the movie characters, since they are non-canon, they probably won’t be included in the game’s story so i expect them to be dlc.

  • KDG

    Because the game is FighterZ, not FighterSuper. It’s only natural the focus would be on Z characters; the emphasis is in the title itself. Super characters are merely a bonus.

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    If they’re going to pull Broly and Bardock as the playable movie characters, like, 12th time in a row, but no one else (5th Form Cooler and C13, c’mon!), I’ll be fu**ing pissed and spam the f*** out of Bandai’s mailbox!

    No, I’ll FU** THEIR MAILBOX!!!

  • randy191993

    Well Bardock is among the coolest chars in Dragonball so that’s understandable. Broly though… no idea what people find on a braindead monkey. A outdated braindead monkey non the less with Kale beeing the canon braindead monkey now.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Fans don’t make sense

  • randy191993

    Pretty much all games are called Dragonball Z. All of Tenkaichi was called Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi X” despite encompassing all of Dragonball, Z, All movies and GT. Just having a Z in the name means nothing. It’s just a wordplay on Fighters with a z instead of s cause z is coolz and connected to Dragonball anyway. FighterSuper sounds stupid

  • KDG

    Those same games were PRIMARILY Dragon Ball Z games. They featured characters from Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball GT, but the majority of characters and the main focus was centered around Dragon Ball Z, hence my original statement: the emphasis is in the title itself. This does not mean that the game would exclusively cover Dragon Ball Z or exclusively feature Dragon Ball Z characters; the others are a bonus. Yet in direct contrast to your given example, there was once a game called Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout. This game mostly featured characters and forms you would see in Dragon Ball GT, with a few Z characters sprinkled in such as Kid Buu and Future Trunks.

    It has less to do with wordplay than you would think, and more to do with the fact that the primary focus is on Dragon Ball Z characters, with a few Super characters thrown in as a bonus. To complain that a game is not focusing on Dragon Ball Super characters, when the game’s title clearly has a Z in it, would be akin to complaining that a Naruto game that clearly does not feature Shippuden in the title is adding all sorts of characters from part 1 of the anime, while ignoring or putting less emphasis into adding characters and forms from Shippuden. That said, your point and examples don’t adequately disprove my own.

  • Leo LeiGto

    lol. theres always like 3x as many gokus.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Lol. Bardock is not very popular. Compared to some of the other characters. They added Nappa… so i have no idea what they are thinking… I think it would be cool if they added 1 from each of the movies though. Broly is Popular because hes a saiyan and hes the only one that went super for a LONG time. O_o… the lack of personality is pretty bad though… Hes still an awesome character if you just like a berserker. I would appreciate some Cooler, and Janemba.

  • Leo LeiGto

    lol.

  • KDG

    I don’t understand the appeal of either of them. Bardock is nothing more than Goku with a scar and a more Vegeta-esque attitude. And Broly has zero personality. Kale at least has a personality.

  • Leo LeiGto

    o_O … O_o… I dont think your explaining this the right way. This is the First game in a possible series of games… That is reason enough for them to start chronologically with characters from DBZ. Amen.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Lol I agree.

  • KDG

    1. Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout was a standalone game, just as Dragon Ball FighterZ is. Yet it did not start chronologically with characters from Dragon Ball Z.

    2. If you want to argue chronological order, then by that logic the game should simply be titled Dragon Ball Fighters, and begin with young Goku and other characters from Dragon Ball. Dragon Ball Z coming before Dragon Ball Super in the Dragon Ball universe chronology has nothing to do with it.

    The reason is, as stated, because the game is primarily a Dragon Ball Z game, hence the strong emphasis on Dragon Ball Z characters.

  • Leo LeiGto

    False. The name has nothing to do with the characters in it. Z fighterz are in it. Great. Its not just DBZ because it was SSB in the game. Therefore all arguments that it is a DBZ game are false. The name says nothing about the characters in it as Z FIGHTERS are in plenty of games that are not DBZ. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

  • Leo LeiGto

    At any rate we will get more super characters lol so Im happy with this game

  • KDG

    Clearly you’re having trouble understanding the concept of PRIMARY FOCUS. As I’ve stated several times, the PRIMARY FOCUS is centered around Dragon Ball Z. That’s not to say that the content is EXCLUSIVELY Dragon Ball Z, but rather the MAJORITY of the game is based around Dragon Ball Z. Every game that has had Z in the title, whether they have ALSO FEATURED Dragon Ball GT characters, Super characters, original Dragon Ball characters, or whatever, the PRIMARY FOCUS has always been Dragon Ball Z characters. Xenoverse is no different, as the majority of the characters, story, parallel quests, etc. has in fact been centered around Dragon Ball Z. Again, that’s not to say that they did not also FEATURE content and characters from both Dragon Ball GT and Dragon Ball Super, but the PRIMARY FOCUS (there goes those two words again that do not mean exclusivity) has been on Dragon Ball Z. In the cases of games that were centered around Dragon Ball GT and the original Dragon Ball, the game titles did not in fact feature the letter Z. You must not love logic all that much if you can’t understand a basic logical concept such as how the name of a game hints at the PRIMARY FOCUS of said game’s content.

    That said, no one is saying that FighterZ is exclusively a Dragon Ball Z game. What I’m saying is with Z in the title, it’s pretty obvious that the majority of the characters, story, and content will be centered around not Dragon Ball Super, not Dragon Ball GT, but Dragon Ball Z. The PRIMARY FOCUS will be centered around Dragon Ball Z content, with minimal content from Dragon Ball Super (ie: Super Saiyan Blue Goku/Vegeta, Golden Frieza) as a bonus. When they make a Dragon Ball Super game, then you can expect to see more Dragon Ball Super content than Dragon Ball Z (ie: Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout which primarily featured GT characters with a minimal number of Dragon Ball Z characters). It’s really not a difficult concept to understand.

  • PurexedSolitude;

    Well they can do it like Street Fighter and allow you to skip it if you press a button.

  • Di

    1 is more than enough

  • The Real Tobi (Cana)

    Actually Android 13. The only Cyborgs are 18 and 17 and possibly Gero if you want to count him as he’s got a living brain. Everyone else is Mechanical. Cell could count as he is bio-mechanical.

  • Leo LeiGto

    I would tend to agree. but I would not mind 2-3 since goku is the main bro. Vegeta also. A majin Vegeta might be cool . I think they should be different costumes though but i can see why a different move set would also be cool. i am conflicted.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Not a bad idea.

  • Leo LeiGto

    lol.

  • Di

    Goku’s amount of techniques is too limited, you can fit all his moves in 1 character

  • Menacing~~~

    C13 and Cooler are boring.

  • Mutagen_Prime

    Look at the bottom right of the SSJ3 Gotenks panel and there’s a tournament hierachy graphic with all the confirmed characters in the game on it — plus Lord Beerus (top right of graphic) and Hit (bottom middle.) What could perhaps be the Future Trunks with blue hair is there too.

  • Koibito888

    I mean the intros are pretty long and detailed as it is.

  • Koibito888

    With swift enough movement it wouldn’t need to be longer than any of the ones we already got.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Looks like they went with the usual intro fusion hehe. Now I just need goku to SS and Kaioken, while in Ui.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Rumors suggest the main story mode is during the universe 6 story arc with goku Black. Lolol. Your argument crumbles with each passing day.

  • Koibito888

    Lol I saw that! Exactly as I said, fuse than powering up to SSJ and 3 all without taking too long. I love it

    What in FighterZ? Or you just mean like in general cuz yeah no doubt that’ll happen eventually, if not in this arc for how he’ll beat Jiren.

  • Leo LeiGto

    ♡ the game looks so good.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Lol when did you edit your post to be the same thing as I said? Lololol. Because your original post was not what was on there.

  • Koibito888

    What? Lol I said I wanted them to fuse in their intro before powering up to 3 and you said it didn’t make sense how that would happen because the intro would be too long.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Totally not what you said in the original un-edited post. The post was edited it to say what it does now. But maybe thats what you originally wanted. You wanted them to fuse during matches thats also why PurexedSolitude said it was a “neat idea but impractical.” my suggestion of the taunt/intro before the fight made you change your edit? lol.

  • Koibito888

    No lol I didn’t edit it I was specifically talking about in intro and that’s what I said from the start. No I specifically WOULDN’T want an in match fusion because it would be temporary and I much prefer Gotenks be a base character you’re using at all times, not Goten and Trunks with a transformation of fusing. Not to mention I also specifically did want him to be in SSJ3 as a base state so that we had an SSJ3 character not just during an attack like Goku. So no I specifically wanted it in intro and said so from the start.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Lolol. Bro. This guy is Cray Cray.

  • Leo LeiGto

    Looks like the sort is after universe 6 arc. Making this mainly a DBS game lol.

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    Broly is not braindead, he is a psycho. Plus, his design is awesome unlike Kale. And no, Super is not canon – just because Toriyama got retarded and thought “hmm, how ’bout making continuation of Dragon Ball which I barely even REMEMBER” (he said it himself he doesn’t remember a lot from Dragon Ball) “but because I’m too lazy/old to do so much story by myself, I’ll give that task to people who don’t give a crap” (Toei) “and I’ll only fix this and that”

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    lol, how?? Do you even remember how cool their designs are and how brutal their fighting styles are?
    And you’re supposedly not bored by the exact same characters you had since Budokai 3 at least?

  • KDG

    I’m not interested in rumors. There was a time when rumors suggested Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 would have free-flight. Needless to say, it didn’t.

  • randy191993

    Yes. Sadly it is canon. If Toriyama says it is then it is.

    And yes, Broly is braindead. He has absolutely zero character whatsoever. he isn’t a psycho. he’s simply retarded. And Kale is too. They’re bot the worst thing to ever come from any medium ever, no matter if anime, manga, movie, book or ancient egyptian hieroglyphs. They’re both just terrible and should have never existed.

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    Actually, Toriyama never said such a thing. I honestly doubt he cares about such a thing to begin with. Seeing his interviews, I can see a vibe that he doesn’t care whether something is –
    or can be called – canon, as long as it’s fun.
    Toyotaro said that Toriyama is helping with Super as much as with any other DB-related works, so that means even games with original characters and stories, like Xenoverse and Fighterz.

    I don’t think Broly is dumb because of the way he speaks (when he actually does so, heh).

  • Leo LeiGto

    Lel. Truth is we dont know enough about it to know why its called FIGHTERZ.
