In a surprising twist, the fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ is getting an alternate form of Android 21 as a DLC character.
One of the most popular anime fighting games currently available is Dragon Ball FighterZ. This is a traditional 3v3 fighting game in collaboration with Arc System Works and Bandai Namco, based on the enduringly relevant Dragon Ball IP. This particular game has seen impressive milestones and post-launch support, with Dragon Ball FighterZ achieving more than 8 million copies sold as of this year. It seemed that FighterZ I would no longer add DLC after last season, but Bandai Namco and Arc System Works seem to be adding at least one more to the list.
Dragon Ball FighterZ has seen three seasons of DLC fighters since its launch. This includes downloadable content from fan-favorite characters like Bardock, Cooler, Broly, and Vegito, plus unexpected but welcome additions like Master Roshi, Videl, and Super Baby 2. The third season of downloadable content ended earlier this year, with the addition of another fan favorite, Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta. It was speculated that no more fighters would be added after him, but in a surprising twist, Bandai Namco announced another DLC character coming soon, Android 21.
Android 21 is already part of the base list of FighterZ, where she is not only the main antagonist, but also a playable character by completing the game’s story mode. The current playable version of Android 21 is in his transformed Majin Form, where he has a ton of explosive ki attacks, along with one that can turn his opponents into food. This latest addition to the game will be her in her human costume before transforming, simply known as Android 21 (lab coat).
The trailer uploaded by Bandai Namco is very short, it only shows his introduction before the battle, along with the selection portrait of his character. Like Android 21 appearances in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Y kakarotto, seems to be focused on her research, as evidenced by her opening quote. His abilities have yet to be described, as well as how this form will differ from his Majin form which is part of the base roster, with Bandai Namco promising more information soon.
With this alternative form of Android 21 added to the list of Dragon Ball FighterZ, has had some fans speculating whether his addition will be as a standalone character or as part of a fourth season pass. Some fans are hoping that if the game gets another season of DLC, darker or fan-favorite from the original, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, The Dragon Ball Super would be added to the game.
Dragon Ball FighterZ It is available now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
