Kid Buu and more Joins the Fight in Dragon Ball FighterZ

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

It was much anticipated and sought after after the news broke out some time ago that Kid Buu Would be joining the roster of Dragon Ball Fighterz. This news left many fans clamoring to see the latest iteration of gameplay of the pink world destroyer. Without further ado Bandai Namco has released the official Kid Buu gameplay trailer for Dragon Ball FighterZ.

 

You can check out the trailers below of Kid Buu, Gotenks, Android 18 and 16,

(Editors Opinion: I’m hoping for a full on grappler character. So far however Cell is the only player who some what fits the feel of a character I’m looking forward to using the most. However I am optimistic for more variety in the roster so far. For the most part we’ve been pretty much able to guess to some degree who would be included in the game. However I still look forward to playing this fighter in the future and you can most definitely expect The Online Arcade to host many a tournaments of this title in the future.)

Dragon Ball FighterZ will launch for PlayStation 4 January 26th in the US and EU and February 1st in Japan. What do you think of the roster so far are there any characters you hope to see implemented before the games official release? Comment below let us know. And news like this and more make to keep us bookmarked and check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.
