Bandai Namco has apparently revealed three new characters in Dragon Ball FighterZ. Yamcha, Tien, and... Android 21? Yamcha and Tien have been confirmed to be playable while Android 21's status is unknown.

Those of you who with in-depth knowledge of the anime and manga will probably know that the android line stopped at 20. Android 21 is an completely new character.

Like Android 18, this new Android is a female. She is apparently a scientist with glasses and long bushy hair, according to Siliconera. Despite this being a brand new character, she was still designed by Akira Toriyama all the same.

As for Tien Shinhan, he comes with Chiaotzu assist attacks. These likely work similarly to how Android 18's 17 assist attacks function.

Yamcha has been a character that really hasn't seen much action in the anime for a long time now. While not much has been revealed for him yet, it's likely that he'll be utilizing his classic Wolf Fang Fist attack.

Dragon Ball FighterZ will be releasing on February 2018.
