Dragon Ball FighterZ Getting Master Roshi as a Playable Character

Bandai Namco have held the second edition of the Dragon Ball FighterZ Show this Sunday, on September 13th. During the event, fans of the game got some new info on upcoming happenings and content, as is usually the case. For example, Bandai Namco have revealed the list of contestants participating in Dragon Ball FighterZ National Championship regional tournaments. However, the true star of the whole thing was the reveal of Master Roshi, who is going to be a playable character in the near future.

Yes, the cooky (and often inappropriate) master of the Turtle School is joining the roster of combatants in Dragon Ball FighterZ on September 16th. The developers also released a trailer for Master Roshi, which shows off his wide array of moves and special attacks. You can check out the video below to see what you can expect. Really, if you’re a fan on the franchise, you can kinda guess what he’s like.

As far as I can tell, he has two modes. The first one is Roshi as the tiny, wiry old man, while the other is the towering, buff guy that you’d never want to cross. And, of course, there’s also his Kamehameha, which covers about two thirds of the screen. Good luck if you get one of those to the face. Honestly, based on the trailer alone, they’ve really nailed the character down, and his moveset reflects his personality.

With all that said, let’s not forget the latest patch for Dragon Ball FighterZ. Said notes are fairly massive, and include changes to basically every single character in the roster. You can check them all out on the official Bandai Namco website. I recommend you give them a look, since odds are that they affect your mains in ways that you’ll want to know about.
