This week we'll be seeing the release of Dragon Ball FighterZ on Nintendo Switch. On Friday, September 28th, Bandai Namco / Arc System Works' high-flying 3v3 fighting title will be launched on Nintendo's console / handheld hybrid.

Fans are also anticipating the release of Dragon Ball FighterZ's final two DLC characters of the game's first season: Cooler and Android 17.

As the older brother of major Dragon Ball Z villain Frieza, Cooler starred in films such as Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge and Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler. Android 17 was first introduced in Dragon Ball Z's Android Saga, but the version found in Dragon Ball FighterZ hails from Dragon Ball Super.

It seems that a concrete North American release date for both Cooler and Android 17 is not being given right now, however, we have seen in the video description of Android 17's trailer from Bandai Namco Europe that both characters are set for release on September 27th — meaning it's likely we'll see them on the 28th in the U.S. due to Europe often being ahead of the states when it comes to content releases.

This would make sense considering an in-depth breakdown of Android 17 was just released by Lotus | Nerdcore Nerd Corner and shows that both Cooler and Android 17 are accessible in the Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Ball FighterZ. Lotus notes that Bandai Namco sent the Switch game over to them early with all of the DLC and both fighters were unlocked on the roster.

Lotus provides a breakdown that clocks in a little over 20 minutes and runs through many of Android 17's tools. If you're looking for all the information on Android 17 before he's officially released, be sure to check out the breakdown below.
