Dragon Ball FighterZ is nearing its January 26, 2018 release date, and that means that publisher Bandai Namco is showing off more of the upcoming fighting game.
The addition of Majin Android 21 brings up the total roster count of "Dragon Ball FighterZ" to 24 at launch with more characters set to be released later on as downloadable content.
The video uploaded to Bandai Namco's European YouTube account features nearly three minutes of the game's Yamcha theme that'll play for the character in-game. Her creation was supervised by the series' author, Akira Toriyama. "Hungry Time" sends out a pink beam that, if it hits the opponent, instantly turns them into a macaroon, a technique she shares with the other two Majin characters who can turn their opponents into some sort of delectable snack and consume them on the spot. We learned from the trailer that Androids 21 and 16 hold "the key to the story".More news: Government scrambles to get National Football League playoff games to troops

The most interesting thing about her character gameplay wise is her Tasting Cut Ultimate Attack, which lets her drain her opponent's energy and learn their attacks. She then faces them and tells them not to bother her or get in her way. The original character is fully playable, but you'll need to knuckle down in order to unlock her.
Loyalty to the Anime looks of the Dragon Ball universe is a solid, nostalgic switch compared to the 3D settings of the Xenoverse games. Though the game's not out yet, from early test runs of the various characters and their abilities, Yamcha is shaping up to be one of the game's more dominant fighters. Yamcha may be a running joke by now in the Dragon Ball series with the character getting beaten, excluded, and killed off in nearly every saga across the various series, but his upbeat theme definitely doesn't make him seem that way.
A breakdown of Yamcha's fighting style was released back in December that highlighted the character's Wolf Fang Fist ability that the majority of his kit is based around. Also, just in case that wasn't enough, the update also provides new swimsuits for Android 18 and Videl. The first one is Dragon Ball FighterZ's launch trailer, which shows the game's insane action in all its unadulterated glory.
