Krillin and Piccolo Detailed in Dragon Ball FighterZ

July 21, 2017Written by Tyler Treese


Arc System Works and Bandai Namco are slowly trickling out the details for Dragon Ball FighterZ, and we now have more details on the online play. Players will be able to “fight and interact” with other users in what is called the FighterZ lobby. Similar to other Arc System Works fighting games, players will be able to save replays of matches, communicate via stamps (or a Z-Stamp if you want to be on brand), and “use facial expressions from Dragon Ball characters.”

Beyond the multiplayer, Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe also went in-depth on the two newest characters: Piccolo and Krillin:

Piccolo is considered to be one of the most technical characters with his expandable arm to grab his opponents. He has various ways to break the opponent’s guard and he can also fire fast and powerful beams. Players can charge up for a stronger attack by long-pressing the button. To create a huge blow, Piccolo can use his ability to release Ki blast from afar or for an effective strike, players can even connect it with a combo move!

Krillin doesn’t have that much reach and power but easily compensates with several different techniques such as the Kamehameha to fight a long-range game. He can also skillfully confuse his opponents by leaving an image of himself before turning into an attack. Furthermore, players have the choice to use the famous Senzu Bean. Fans will also be delighted to know that his signature and blockable attack is also included in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is currently set to release in early 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A closed beta is coming later this year, and players will be able to register for it starting July 26.
