Yamcha and Tien Shinhan are playable in Dragon Ball FighterZ, and an original character called Android 21 will appear, the latest issue of V-Jump reveals.

Android 21, designed by Akira Toriyama, is a central figure in the main story, described as like a scientist with an intellect comparable to Dr. Gero, creator of the Androids. She is a character shrouded in mystery and said to cause a big uproar in the story. She is shown with Android 16 in all three screenshots.

Yamcha is a on-the-ground, close-range, rush-type fighter. He uses surprise attacks and combos derived from his signature attack, “Wolf Fang Fist.” His special attack, Spirit Ball, can be controlled with additional input. He can also use his Meteor special attack, “Neo Wolf Fang Fist.” Here are his stats:

  • Power: 2
  • Speed: 4
  • Reach: 2
  • Technique: 3
  • Energy: 2

Tien is a high-performance fighter who overwhelms his opponents with various techniques, from Tri-Beam to Dodon Ray, Volleyball Attack, and even assists through Chiaotzu’s Telekinesis, which can seal the opponent’s movement. When using Tri-Beam, it is possible to rapid-fire with additional input, but HP will deplete for every shot. He can also use his Meteor special attack, “Neo Tri-Beam.” Here are his stats:

  • Power: 3
  • Speed: 3
  • Reach: 3
  • Technique: 3
  • Energy: 2

Dragon Ball FighterZ is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in February 2018.
