Dragon Ball FighterZ just saw the release of its latest DLC character yesterday. Kid Goku from the Dragon Ball GT series is now available for purchase, and in an interesting turn of events was released alone despite every DLC character before him being launched in pairs.

Fans have been wondering who that fourth and only unannounced DLC fighter of Season 2 is, but it looks like we now know the answer to that question — it's Janemba.

During the latest episode of "This Week on Xbox," show host Major Nelson ran through the various updates and content coming to Xbox this week and in the near future. Yesterday was not only the release of Kid Goku in Dragon Ball FighterZ, but also Goku Day, which was celebrated by Bandai Namco with a fancy DBFZ trailer featuring all of the versions of Goku.

At one point in the episode, Nelson discusses the new Dragon Ball FighterZ content and mentions a character we've definitely never seen or heard of before.

"To celebrate, today you can get GT Goku and Janemba skins for Dragon Ball FighterZ," Major Nelson explained.

This is the first mention of Janemba in Dragon Ball FighterZ we've ever seen, though it was a bit confusing that he word "skins" was included in there. Looking over the latest content update, there doesn't appear to be anything related to Janemba that might reflect what was mentioned during the show.

This started out as what fans believed was an accidental leak, but apparently it's legitimate. The official Xbox Twitter account responded to several followers on Twitter about the "leak" and confirmed that the character was indeed announced.

In one tweet, Xbox responded to a follower asking "So Janemba confirmed?" with a flat out "confirmed." They also corrected another follower tweeting about the leak by saying "Apparently Xbox just announced Janemba for Dragon Ball FighterZ [fixed that for you]."

With E3 one month away, there's a good chance we'll see an official reveal trailer for Janemba at the event.

Janemba made his debut in the film "Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn." He is the main antagonist of the movie and is the embodiment of pure evil.
