Update: Master Roshi is now live on PlayStation 4 and all other platforms for FighterZ Pass 3 owners. You can find everything you need to know about the turtle hermit's gameplay, mechanics and more below.

Master Roshi will become available to download for usage in Dragon Ball FighterZ starting tomorrow, September 16. However, players will only be able to use Master Roshi tomorrow if they own the FighterZ Pass 3, priced at $19.99.

Alongside Master Roshi, FighterZ Pass 3 owners will also have access to Kefla and Ultra Instinct Goku. There are still two more challengers for the FighterZ Pass 3 that have yet to be revealed.

For those that intend to only get Master Roshi, he'll be priced at $4.99. However, keep in mind that those that acquire Master Roshi individually won't have access to him until September 18, this Friday.

In terms of mechanics, Master Roshi functions differently than the rest of the cast. He's currently the only character in Dragon Ball FighterZ without a Super Dash.

As shown in his gameplay breakdown and his in-game move list, Master Roshi instead has a "Masterful Leap" and a "Reverse Kamehameha." Both of these techniques can be directed, but they lack the homing properties of the Super Dash.

Master Roshi's inability to perform the Super Dash is likely in reference to his inability to fly in the canon material. It's been speculated that Master Roshi refuses to learn how to fly since it was a technique that was originally developed by his rival on Earth.

Uniquely, Master Roshi is also armed with a super that forces the opponent to swap out. Indeed, the Evil Containment Wave looks like a powerful tool that gives Master Roshi a lot of utility on teams.

As the Season 3.5 patch is already live, many of Master Roshi's opponents and teammates will be buffed versions of their Season 3 iterations.
