Dragon Ball Z's Majin Buu Saga retelling in just 5 minutes by Mega64 is about as ridiculous as you might expect

To think that it's been four years since Mega64 retold the story of the Cell Saga in Dragon Ball Z in just five minutes. At long last, Mega64 has returned to cover the Majin Buu Saga, also in just five minutes.

Rather than wasting time with Gohan and his high school life, the video begins with the tournament part of the story. Almost immediately (as time does not permit too much of the story to be retold), chaos ensues as Vegeta turns into Majin Vegeta while Majin Buu is released.

Dragon Ball FighterZ latest balance patch now lets Adult Gohan land 9 uppercuts in one combo with no assists during Level 1

The latest Dragon Ball FighterZ balance update dropped this week and one of its major focuses was to nerf the overly powerful Lab Coat 21 โ€” which it did. Also included in the patch, however, were changes for everyone else on the playable roster, and the community is diving head first into figuring out what each fighter is now capable of and how strong (or weak) they might be now.

Scarlet_Photon on Twitter, an Adult Gohan player since day one (according to their bio), has been actively releasing new clips on Twitter that aim to push the limits of what this character can do here in version 1.31. Among his new capabilities, apparently Adult Gohan is now capable of landing nine whole Dragon Punches in a single combo without using any assists, and it's swaggy as hell.

Lab Coat Android 21 may be the most nerfed fighting game character in recent history but even now she's still probably strong

Every season of Dragon Ball FighterZ DLC added at least 1 new top tier fighter that would dominate the meta for a time, but none of them were as problematic for the game as Lab Coat Android 21.

After months of community complaints and her getting banned from CEO 2022, Bandai Namco finally released the Version 1.31 balance patch last night to arguably make Lab Coat 21 the most nerfed fighting game character in recent memory, but even then, she's still probably going to be strong.

As previously promised, patch 1.31 for Dragon Ball FighterZ is releasing "around July." According to Bandai Namco Esports, version 1.31 is releasing tomorrow, June 29.

This probably shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, but Lab Coat Android 21 is receiving a fair share of nerfs in the scheduled patch. Luckily for fans of other characters, the patch is doing more than just nerfing Lab Coat Android 21.

Another new transformation reportedly happens in the new Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie

Several months ago, it was seemingly revealed in a trailer for the upcoming movie, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, that Piccolo would showcase a new transformation. This was particularly unique as it's traditionally been Saiyans, not Namekians, that transform to increase their power levels. The Namekian way of increasing has typically involved a form of fusion that is permanent.

According to those that saw Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero during its recent midnight showing in Japan, Piccolo apparently isn't the only character that has a brand new transformation. Be aware that there will be spoilers for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero mentioned beyond this point.
