ShonenGames Theories: Dragon Ball FighterZ Roster Size At Least 17 and Multiple Versions of Characters

    That would be a shame. If this is the case people are gonna go nuts.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      Nothing is set in stone right now so we’ll see.

  • Zenkai

    If you look on the website there is an extra space below in the current display for another row of characters….

    Like everyone and their mother has said, we will be getting a 24-26 character roster on arrival, considering top row has 8, second row has 9, and third row will have either 8 or 9.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      As it stands currently there doesn’t seem to be enough room for a third row (unless we’re missing something) but that could easily change in a website update a couple months from now so who knows.

      “Like everyone and their mother has said, we will be getting a 24-26 character roster on arrival”

      ^Said that myself ages ago, so well done in re-iterating for folks! the 3-Vs-3 system would be fairly balanced out at 21 to 26 fighters or so. Christian Chiok is merely theorizing just as we DBZ fans are, but from experience and playing ‘Fighting Games’ 20 plus year ago. An average roster for a FG of today, would realistically be around those numbers give or take!

      Hope the game also has a minor single player mode of some sort. But 21 characters or 24 is something where the final lockoff will happened i reckon, DLC or not! Can’t see; Arc System going all KOF on this game.

    Well SSB Goku and Vegeta are pretty much mandatory at this point. I mean not only are they the current version of those characters, but we have already seen Frieza going Golden Form. It would be pretty dumb to include Gold Frieza, but not the guys who are more important, and are the only ones that form has ever fought.

    Now, for a Dragonball Game 17 characters sure sounds very few. If that’s really the case i can’t imagine people beeing very happy about that. Especially since some of those slots then go to useless characters like Krillin, when there are way more important characters arround instead.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      Well the subject here is basically that there are at least 17. Christian then uses evidence from previous games to guess the roster. We’ll see what happens from here, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Namco is full on funding this like crazy to get a good roster.

      I don’t think Krillin is useless I’m against having a roster with all saiyans and all high level characters. Some diversity in the roster is great. If this was Xenoverse I would argue that no one uses krillin at all, but in a game like this Krillin could be one of the best characters in the game.

    • Kamuikenshi

      Krillin isn’t useless, he’s perfect for a game like this because we finally have actual fighting game developers to make him a technical character who can be very viable with the right strategy.

      And Krillin is one of the more important characters besides the Saiyans and Piccolo, and he’s been around forever so not sure what you’re going on about there. He was always going to be in this game, no question.

      The Budokai games didn’t have huge rosters.
      FighterZ is like a reboot of the Budokai series, so don’t expect a Tenkaichi or Raging Blast sized roster.

  • Sleepingdragon55

    Well it is a fighting game so I wouldn’t really expect anything above 21 characters and even that’s a lot.

  • Kamuikenshi

    Linking the actual website would be nice.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      That would be if you wasn’t being sarcastic about it.

      The official website has been linked before it’s not hard at all to find. Most wikis link it as well.

      • Kamuikenshi

        I’m not even being sarcastic. Isn’t it a common practice to link a source for an article?

        • TheGameTagerZ

          I assume you’re the guy on Gamefaqs complaining that we didn’t “link the source”

          We’re not trying to hide the website. People already know how to get to it. That’s like complaining if we didn’t link Namco EU’s official website for beta times. You can easily go to their website and find that.

          If you’re going to complain for something as silly as that then dismiss the article because of it then idk what to tell you tbh.

          The point of the article was visiting the website that has been up for two months now already. To look at the character roster page which was already 2-3 days old to give our thoughts about the roster and DLC.

          If you’re easily offended/annoyed by it then like I said before I don’t know what to tell you? Find a place that links the official website every article? Doubt it. Either way this is stupid I seen people complain about more legitimate things such as errors we made on scans/screenshots.

          • Kamuikenshi

            Well I’m actually the guy who linked your article on there so more people could see it, but okay. Just thought it couldn’t hurt, that’s all.

            • TheGameTagerZ

              Oh I thought you were “MasterofKaioken” and not OP. I guess I was wrong then so apologies. Still, I think the whole thing is very silly. Especially given the site has been up for months. We didn’t hear these complains when translating the ranks in FighterZ the other day.

              In any case I’ll get it posted. My thing is that we shouldn’t have to do that every single time when it’s been discussed before. I don’t know any other website that does that for official game pages.

              • Kamuikenshi

                I get you, I just figured some of the people coming over here from gamefaqs might be coming for the first time, so it would help them get to it easier if they haven’t found it already. No worries.

    • Good to see you again, Lee.

  • Sasaki

    Too low. This is a team game after all. Launch should be around 20.

  • Whitney Asante

    I hope this speculation proves false. To have a 3 character fighter that doesn’t at least break the 25 fighter barrier sounds like a developer asking for trouble. Just sayin.
