Another character enters the Dragon Ball FighterZ fight. Android 21 has been confirmed as a playable character.

Ever since she was first shown to be a part of the game's story mode, fans anxiously awaited her reveal as part of the actual roster. In the latest issue of V-Jump, that reveal has finally come.

ShonenGames, who we have to thank for sharing the scan, reports that Android 21 is the final character on the game's launch roster.

As we can see from the images, she looks a bit different than we're used to. It appears that she has taken on a Majin form, wearing similar clothing to Majin Buu.

One screenshot on the scan shows Android 21 speaking with Buu in what looks to be a story mode cut scene, so perhaps we will find out why she has taken on this form.

According to the scan, which has been translated by our very own MajinTenshinhan, Android 21 has the ability to absorb energy from her opponents. Her special move, Tasting Cut, sees her grab the opponent and steal their energy from them.

Once she does so, she can utilize her foe's moves. The scan makes mention of her firing a Kamehameha, and notes that if she absorbs Krillin's energy, she gains access to Solar Flare.

The more she learns about her opponent, the more she gets to use. She can also turn her opponents into sweets, as we see in one screenshot, and her Meteor Super Attack is very similar to Majin Buu's.
