With GT's Kid Goku inclusion, we now have 5 different Gokus in Dragon Ball FighterZ, but how many more Gokus are still out there waiting to be added?

We now know that Kid Goku from Dragon Ball GT will be the next DLC fighter coming to Dragon Ball FighterZ which has pretty much the internet as a whole groaning about him because he's another Goku.

There are now five different characters on the roster that have Goku in their name with more being made up of a part of the Saiyan protagonist, but just how many forms of Goku are represented in FighterZ? And how many are still floating around the development ether that could still be added to the game?

Videl's dodge mechanic in Dragon Ball FighterZ can potentially change how the game is played — will we see more mold-breaking in the future?

Earlier this year, we got out first additions of the Season 2 cast for Dragon Ball FighterZ in form of Jiren and Videl as new playable fighters.

While there haven't been any really big events for the game since the World Tour finals at which they were revealed, we've had some time now to experience both characters, and their pros and cons.

If Dragon Ball FighterZ's Producer could change one thing about the game, it would be her EVO 2018 performance

Dragon Ball FighterZ set the fighting game community on fire last year setting records for the fastest-selling Dragon Ball title along with a few records at EVO 2018, so it's not surprising that the developers do not seem to have many regrets for the way the game has turned out.

Push Square recently had the opportunity to sit down with DBFZ's Producer over at Bandai Namco, Tomoko Hiroki, where they asked her a wide range of topics from how characters are included to the importance of big events though there was one topic she seemed pretty invested in.

Broly has an unblockable, difficult to escape setup after a snap back in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Although the Dragon Ball Super version of Broly was announced as a future playable character for Season 2 of Dragon Ball FighterZ, one simply canoot forget about the original version of Broly even if he isn't canonical.

Georg Shkodo recently discovered an unblockable, near inescapable setup that Broly can do in Dragon Ball FighterZ after a snap back. Rooflemonger has uploaded a video that details how to perform this and the few escape options.

Think Android 17 is low tier in Dragon Ball FighterZ? Axeice's gameplay with the character might change your mind

Although Android 17 is one of the Season 1 DLC fighters for Dragon Ball FighterZ, he's often regarded as one of the game's weaker characters. On our community voted tier list, you'll find that Android 17 is ranked as the 34th best character in the game — better known as dead last.

Ironically, this character is known as the "MVP of Universe 7" due to his contributions to the Tournament of Power arc for Dragon Ball Super. Impressions so far suggest that he won't be the MVP of anyone's team during tournament level gameplay.

Why you shouldn't be too worried about any 'doomsday talk' concerning the current state of Dragon Ball FighterZ

To say that Dragon Ball FighterZ was big in 2018 is an understatement. As the first Dragon Ball game the fighting game community deemed competitively legitimate, (the additional fact that the somewhat similar Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite didn't do too hot surely helped) FighterZ was able to take the FGC by storm.

The Bandai Namco title garnered tons of hype, was the most-watched game at the EVO 2018 finals and was fueled by international feuds such as the epic FOX|SonicFox vs. CO|Go1 series.

If you somehow didn't know, Click Burgundy's fighting game artwork is the toppest of tiers

Click Burgundy is a Japanese artist we've featured a number of times on EventHubs already because of their godlike fighting game art, and their work continues to be amazing.

We've collected a dozen more pieces from Click Burgundy's recent collections where they seem to have been pretty excited about the EVO and EVO Japan line ups plus some other recent fighting game announcements like Videl in Dragon Ball FighterZ — and I guess we know which side of the pigtails vs. short hair debate they fall on.

Footage of SonicFox and Chris G. playing Videl in Dragon Ball FighterZ gives us a glimpse of what the character is capable of

Dragon Ball FighterZ Season 2's first two characters are Videl and Jiren. Seeing as how the second Dragon Ball World hasn't started yet, we haven't had too many opportunities to see some high level gameplay for these new combatants.

Not too long ago, YogaFlame24 uploaded some videos featuring FOX|SonicFox and EG|Chris G. using Videl. This fighter looks like she has quite a bit of potential thanks to her ability to call Saiyaman assists.

Dragon Ball FighterZ still has 2 unknown DLC characters coming out next, so who are the most likely candidates to show up?

Dragon Ball FighterZ kicked off its second season of content over a month ago when we got a new update for the ever popular fighting game that also brought with it Jiren and Videl as the first DLC characters to release since Android 17 and Cooler.

Season 2 was revealed to contain six new fighters out the gate where we also learned that Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta and Broly from the recent Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie will be the final two characters for 2019, but that still leaves the third and fourth warriors a mystery for now.

Capcom President: We are fully engaging the eSports market, focusing on five, ten and even twenty years into the future

As the eSports train continues to pick up speed, gaming communities have become more and more comfortable with shedding the anxieties and leaning into this massive new landscape.

After taking into account the growth of first person shooter, battle royale and multiplayer online battle arena scenes, it's clear that the fighting game car is a little closer to the back of our figurative train. This is perhaps most easily evidenced by the numbers as we compare, say, 2018 Dota 2 World Championship's $25 million prize pool to the $500,000 prize pool of the 2018 Capcom Pro Tour.
