Android 21's partial intro in Dragon Ball FighterZ

The cel-shaded 2.5D fighter follows a 3v3 format similar to Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and it's packed with Easter eggs and references for Dragon Ball fans to find.

With the open beta having come to a close and the official release just over the horizon, Arc System Works surprises those looking forward to "Dragon Ball FighterZ" by revealing one last playable character - the game-original Android 21, albeit in a more pinkish state.

Bandai Namco has released a character trailer for Android 21, the second female character on the game's roster, the other being Android 18.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to launch on January 26, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. We should note that the "change character" option listed above is different from the assist moves, and allows you to change the character you're now playing as, to one who's waiting on the sidelines.

As seen below in the latest Dragon Ball FighterZ gameplay trailer, Majin Android 21 faces off against Android 16, and the latter humanoid ends up on the receiving end of an absolute pummeling. Timing is critical to this however, as you have to initiate the block at the same time as your opponent's hit connects with you.

Loyalty to the Anime looks of the Dragon Ball universe is a solid, nostalgic switch compared to the 3D settings of the Xenoverse games.

Dragon Ball FighterZ doesn't make the human fighter seem like much of a pushover either. Her special move, appropriately named "Tasting Cut", has her latching on to her opponent and draining their energy.

As both a Majin and an android, the character is a combination of two key races in Dragon Ball Z.

In order to pull off the more devastating Special Move that costs three bars from the Ki Gauge, all you need to do is instead turn the analog stick clockwise instead from facing downward, and press the right bumper or right trigger.
