Dragon Ball FighterZ DLC character Android 17 announced

Due out in late September alongside free update.

Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ will add Android 17 as a playable character via paid downloadable content in late September for $4.99 / 500 yen, the latest issue of V-Jump reveals.

Android 17’s special moves include:

  • “Barrier Explosion” – Surrounds his body in a barrier before charging forward. This can also be used in the air.
  • “End Game” – Goes around behind the enemy and continuously attacks.
  • Meteor Attack: “Super Electric Strike” – Swirls around energy that builds up in his hands, then fires it off. This can also be used in the air.

A free update for Dragon Ball FighterZ will be released alongside the Android 17 add-on in late September. It will include the new stage “Space Arena” on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (and presumably PC—V-Jump does not cover PC titles). The Switch version of the stage will be released at a later date.

Additionally, seasonal Z Capsules featuring Halloween outfit-themed lobby characters and stamps will be distributed until late November.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and will launch for Switch on September 27 in Japan, and September 28 in the Americas and Europe.

Thanks, Ryokutya2089.
