ArcSys has officially unveiled Janemba as a DLC fighter in Dragon Ball FighterZ. This announcement came after the grand finals of Dragon Ball FighterZ at EVO 2019.

We previously knew this character was coming as Microsoft and Nintendo had previously mentioned that this character was coming to the game as part of the second season pass.

Janemba served as the antagonist of the non-canonical movie, Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn. Although Janemba was a very powerful opponent, Goku and Vegeta agreed to perform the Fusion Dance — transforming them into Gogeta — in order to defeat him.

Not surprisingly, Janemba appears in Dragon Ball FighterZ while in his second and more recognizable form. Notably though, Janemba's first form appears in the trailer.

Janemba's attacks in Dragon Ball FighterZ are very strange looking. Similar to the movie, he is able to open up portals, move his hand through them, and attack opponents from awkward angles.

He also appears to have access to a sword and can transform his arm into various objects. It also looks as though Janemba has access to a projectile counter move.

This new fighter will be available on August 8, 2019. At the very end of the trailer, we got a brief sneak peak at Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta.

The fusion of Goku and Vegeta will not be available on the same day as Janemba. Instead, the character is stated to simply be "coming soon."
