Dragon Ball FighterZ | Janemba reveal

Dragon Ball FighterZ | Janemba match outro

At the tail end of the Dragon Ball FighterZ EVO 2019 grand finals, Bandai Namco announced the final unrevealed character to be part of the game’s second season pass: the incarnation of evil from Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn, Janemba.

The reveal was done through a trailer, which you can see here:

The trailer gives a look at Janemba’s gameplay, which makes use of his portals and sword, as well as the unique effect on a teleporting attack. He seems to notably have the ability to absorb and store projectiles before firing them back at the opponent, somewhat similar to Azrael’s Growler Field and Phalanx Cannon from the BlazBlue series. He also has normal attacks that make use of his stretchy limbs and tail.

The trailer also gave us our first look at gameplay for SSGSS Gogeta, revealed alongside the second season pass in January. It’s the version of Gogeta from the recent Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie (with that version of Broly also coming as part of the season pass), but unfortunately we weren’t able to glean much from the brief look at him in the trailer.

Janemba will be joining the Dragon Ball FighterZ roster on August 8, and Gogeta is still just “coming soon”. They’re joining Jiren, Videl and GT Goku, all already released as part of the second season pass, which is available on Steam, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
