The latest issue of V-Jump has revealed that Krillin and Piccolo are playable characters in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
While it’s very early days for the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster, the current line-up had two pretty big characters missing, and that was Krillin and Piccolo. Fortunately they’ve now been revealed as playable characters in the game, and I can’t help but get even more excited for this release.
Along with the announcement, the mag also revealed the stats for each character which you can see below:
- Power: 3
- Speed: 2
- Reach: 4
- Technique: 4
- Energy: 3
“Piccolo has technical skills such as extending his arms to grasp his opponent and charge techniques. He has a variety of methods to break the opponent’s guard. He can fire beams at super high speeds. By long-pressing the button, he can charge up for a stronger attack. He also has a technique that fires a Ki blast to deal great damage. When connecting from a combo, it will deal even greater damage.”
- Power: 2
- Speed: 3
- Reach: 1
- Technique: 4
- Energy: 4
“Krillin has low power and reach, but can use a variety of techniques. He can even use Kamehameha, meaning fighting from a distance should not be a problem. He can use skills to confuse the enemy such as the ‘Afterimage Technique,’ which leaves behind an image of Krillin before turning into an attack. He can also use ‘Destructo Disc,’ which is impossible to guard against. After firing Ki blasts, Krillin can alter their trajectory and have them explode in the sky to shoot out multiple Ki blasts.”
In addition to the above stats, the magazine also reveals that players will be able to control chibi characters in the online lobby, much like in the Guilty Gear Xrd series. Those chibi characters will also be able to battle against each other in stage matches.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is due to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in early 2018. Recently, Bandai Namco officially unveiled Trunks as a playable character as well as revealing that the closed beta due this Summer will have registrations open on July 26.
