Videl appears to have Dragon Ball FighterZ's first-ever alternate costume including a helmeted Great Saiyaman partner

Could this mean that more are on the way in Season 2?

Players cannot officially get their hands on Dragon Ball FighterZ's newest characters just yet, but we already know that one of them appears to be hiding a special surprise that will be a first for the fighting game.

Data-miners have reportedly uncovered an alternate costume for Videl in the game's data which marks the first time a character would officially have more than one costume design in a recent Arc System Works developed title.

This alleged discovery changes Videl to match her original appearance from Dragon Ball Z after first meeting Gohan when she still has her hair in long, twin pigtails and wears her Orange Star High School Outfit.

Gohan actually gets a costume change too for the Great Saiyaman going from his tournament design back to his original look with the orange helmet included instead of the bandanna and sunglasses.

Beginning with Guilty Gear Xrd, Arc System Works switched their artstyle for many of their titles to 3D models which led many to hope that we'd see more costumes available for their characters, but that's never really come to fruition until now seemingly due to the way the developer needs to animate each fighter frame by frame.

It is currently unknown if this new costume for Videl will be included with her DLC or if it will be a separate piece of content / unlockables. Bandai Namco has not officially announced classic Videl's look either, so we should still take this reported discovery with a grain of salt.

No other alternate costumes have reportedly been found in Dragon Ball FighterZ's updated files, but perhaps this could be a sign of things to come for the successful fighting game.
