Dragon Ball’s ultimate incarnation of evil, Janemba, is on his way to Dragon Ball FighterZ. Janemba’s arrival to the game was announced just after FighterZ’s Grand Finals at Evo 2019. The announcement came in a trailer that showed off some of the demon’s abilities, and let fans know that he would be coming out on Aug. 8. The trailer also teased the arrival of Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan (SSGSS) Gogeta, who’ll arrive at a later date.
Janemba’s fighting style appears to be heavily influenced by his appearance in the Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn movie. While none of his moves were specifically outlined in the trailer, he appears to use his trademark portals to misdirect his opponents and unleash attacks from a variety of different angles. The trailer gives us a brief glimpse of Janemba in his base form, the round yellow monster, but it appears that most, if not all, of his time in fights will be spent in his more recognizable red and purple Super form.
Joining Janemba is SSGSS Gogeta. Featured in the recent film Dragon Ball Super: Broly, this version of Vegeta and Goku’s fusion is one of the strongest fighting forms that’s ever been featured in the series. The trailer doesn’t give us much of a preview of their abilities, but it does show Gogeta starting up a giant Kamehameha wave, just like they used in the against Broly.
Janemba will be available as part of the Dragon Ball FighterZ season pass. The trailer doesn’t give any specifics on SSGSS Gogeta’s release, outside of mentioning that the character is coming soon.
