The May issue of Shueisha's V-Jump magazine revealed on Wednesday that the character Goku from the Dragon Ball GT anime will join Bandai Namco Entertainment's Dragon Ball FighterZ game as a DLC character. Bandai Namco Entertainment America and Bandai Namco Entertainment UK also confirmed the announcement on Wednesday and revealed screenshots of the new version of Goku in the game.
The new character is part of the game's new "FighterZ Pass 2" season. As with the previous FighterZ Pass, players can purchase the characters individually, or purchase FighterZ Pass 2 for all six characters. Characters announced so far include: Jiren, Videl, Broly (Dragon Ball Super: Broly), and Gogeta (SSGSS).
The game launched for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam in the Americas and Europe in January 2018, and launched last February in Japan for PS4 and Xbox One. The game has sold 2.5 million copies worldwide. The Nintendo Switch version of the game launched in Japan, the Americas, and Europe last September.
The game also received a download-only "Deluxe Edition" release on January 31 that includes previously released DLC characters: Broly, Bardock, Fused Zamasu, Vegito Blue, Base Goku, Base Vegeta, Cooler, and Android 17.
