Piccolo has technical skills such as extending his arms to grasp his opponent and charge techniques. He has a variety of methods to break the opponent’s guard. He can fire beams at super high speeds. By long-pressing the button, he can charge up for a stronger attack. He also has a technique that fires a Ki blast to deal great damage. When connecting from a combo, it will deal even greater damage.

  • Technique: 4
  • Energy: 4

Krillin has low power and reach, but can use a variety of techniques. He can even use Kamehameha, meaning fighting from a distance should not be a problem. He can use skills to confuse the enemy such as the “Afterimage Technique,” which leaves behind an image of Krillin before turning into an attack. He can also use “Destructo Disc,” which is impossible to guard against. After firing Ki blasts, Krillin can alter their trajectory and have them explode in the sky to shoot out multiple Ki blasts.

The magazine’s issue also confirms that players will be able to control chibi-avatar characters in the online lobby, similar to the online system in the Guilty Gear Xrd series, and that those chibi characters will be able to battle against each other. This adds to the previously announced roster of playable characters which includes Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Cell, Frieza, Majin Buu, and Trunks.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in early 2018.
A Nintendo Switch port is also being discussed but remains unconfirmed as of yet.
A closed beta is scheduled for the summer, with registration opening on July 26.
