Bandai Namco also confirmed that Android 17 joins the game on Sept. 27 (that’s next Thursday) alongside Cooler, who was announced back in August. The fighters cost $5 a la carte, and are part of the FighterZ Pass that delivers all of the premium DLC.
Per Bandai Namco’s official description, Android 17 “uses multiple barrier techniques and long-range ki blast attacks to deal with almost all situations.”
“His strongest move is the Super Electric Strike, a large-scale swirl of energy that can be executed both on the ground and mid-air,” it adds. Other reports said Android 17 packs a Barrier Explosion dash attack and End Game, a sneak attack from behind.
A new stage, Space Arena, is due to arrive next week, along with a broader update to the game. Android 17 will make 27 fighters on the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster.
