Bandai Namco Entertainment America announced on Saturday that the character Janemba (from the Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn film) will join the Dragon Ball FighterZ game.

The character will launch on August 8. 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. Other characters in the second season pass include: Jiren, Videl, Broly (Dragon Ball Super: Broly), Gogeta (SSGSS), and Goku (Dragon Ball GT). The above video also lists that Gogeta (SSGSS) is "coming soon," but does not yet have a release window for Broly.

The game launched for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam in the Americas and Europe in January 2018, and launched in February 2018 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.
