Dragon Ball FighterZ’s roster expands by two today with the addition of two Dragon Ball mainstays: Piccolo and Krillin.

As arch-rival and close ally to Dragon Ball protagonist Goku, respectively, it’s probably not a surprise that Piccolo and Krillin will be included in Arc System Works’ fighting game. The addition of the two fighters brings Dragon Ball FighterZ’s roster to nine playable characters, joining Goku, Vegeta, Teen Gohan, Freeza, Future Trunks, Cell and Majin Buu.

Here’s Bandai Namco’s official description of the two new fighters:

Piccolo is considered to be one of the most technical characters with his expandable arm to grab his opponents. He has various ways to break the opponent’s guard and he can also fire fast and powerful beams. Players can charge up for a stronger attack by long-pressing the button. To create a huge blow, Piccolo can use his ability to release Ki blast from afar or for an effective strike, players can even connect it with a combo move!

Krillin doesn’t have that much reach and power but easily compensates with several different techniques such as the Kamehameha to fight a long-range game. He can also skillfully confuse his opponents by leaving an image of himself before turning into an attack. Furthermore, players have the choice to use the famous Senzu Bean. Fans will also be delighted to know that his signature and blockable attack is also included in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Check out some screenshots of Piccolo and Krillin doing their thing in the gallery below. Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in early 2018.
