With Season 3 ending in March alongside the release of SSJ4 Gogeta, fans have wondered if Season 4 is even a possibility, especially with the launch of a new Arc Sys title, Guilty Gear Strive, and the lack of rollback netcode.
While this new update is by no means confirmation that a Season 4 will happen, for both pros and casuals alike, the 9th August showcase of the new patch makes it feel like DBFZ 2.0.

So what exactly is new? Let's find out.
DBFZ 9th August update
Perhaps the biggest change outside of individual balance tuning is the fact that Z-Changing, or tagging characters, can be done from special moves now.
This essentially means that players are no longer restricted to utilizing normal moves or the application of DHC (Delayed Hyper Combo) to switch characters outside of raw tags.
While this patch focused a lot on buffing offensive mechanics, Guard Cancel also received some love, as players will now be able to input it while airborne.
