Beerus is the God of Destruction and possess overwhelming strength. His Meteor special move, “God of Destruction’s Judgment,” is activated by grabbing the opponent before him. He then attacks with a transcendent headshot. His “Spheres of Destruction” technique can prevent the opponent from moving. It generates spheres that explode upon touching the opponent. Spheres can be placed in various spots to trifle with the opponent.

Hit uses “Time-Skip/Molotov” to stop time and strike the opponent’s vitals at ultra high-speed. He has a number of ultra high-speed special moves where he can’t be seen. His Meteor special move is “I Continue to Grow,” in which he stops time and deliver blows at ultra high-speed. The opponent will receive major damage and collapse when time starts moving again. Hit uses instantaneous attacks and movements, strikes that counter attacks received while in a defensive stance, and more. He also has plenty of technical skills.

Goku Black is really Zamasu, who came from another dimension and took over Goku’s body. Goku Black has Goku’s physical abilities and god powers, and can turn his hand into a blade to attack. His Meteor special move, “Work of the Gods,” uses a scythe for a fearful attack. He then creates several clones and mercilessly attacks with his hand blade. The end of the technique unleashes a powerful flash and cuts up the opponent. For some special moves, Zamasu will lend Goku Black a hand. When firing off a Kamehameha, Zamasu will also hold back the opponent. And by cooperating with Zamasu, you can unleash a super special move that throws a powerful spirit ball giant in both power and size.

In addition to the new fighters, the magazine also has information on two new gameplay elements:

  • “Come forth, Shenron!” – Shenron appears during battle. The seven Dragon Balls will gather one by one as you pull off specific numbers of combos. You and your opponent share the amount of Dragon Balls gathered. Shenron will appear in battle when certain conditions are fulfilled, and the player who fulfills those conditions will have their wish granted. You can choose from four wishes: full HP recovery, teammate revival, addition of one “Sparking!” icon, or constantly recovering HP.
  • “Dramatic Production” – Reproduces famous scenes from Dragon Ball before and after the battle when certain conditions are fulfilled.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26 in the Americas and Europe, and February 1 in Japan.
